The fans are not happy with the results that Mourinho's side has achieved so far this season.


defender Toby Alderweireld believes that his team performed better against


after reducing to 10 men, but the opponent was able to stop their attacks.

Tottenham, who fired just one shot at Arsenal's goal at the Emirates Stadium, leading to their only goal, have been criticized by their fans. Alderweireld believes Arsenal were able to block their attack well, but after Eric Lamela was sent off in the 76th minute, the Spurs outperformed their opponents.

He said:

"If it was that easy I think everyone would play 100 per cent attacking football, so I think you have to give credit to them [Arsenal]. In the games before we scored a lot of goals, played attacking football and pressed - that's what we want to do.

"But sometimes because of the opponent or because of ourselves we don't get to that stage we want. We want to attack, we have the players to attack but sometimes it's the opponent as well.

Tottenham are seventh in the table, six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, although they have played one game less than the Blues.

Alderweireld added:

"Of course we can improve, we know that. We can play a lot better. I think our best moments in the game were when we played with 10 men, so that says enough.

"I think we're playing attacking football and we're scoring a lot of goals, so we need to be consistent.

"We have to be back on the way we played before the Arsenal game and that'll bring us success, for sure."
