Jose Mourinho reacts to Tottenham meltdown in wild West Ham draw

Jose Mourinho watched his Tottenham side relinquish a three-goal advantage at home to West Ham with the Hammers scoring three times in the last 10 minutes to salvage an unlikely point.

Spurs were 3-0 up at half-time thanks to a Heung-min Son opener and then two goals from Harry Kane as they completely outclassed West Ham.

The second half was a different story, though, as the Hammers pushed and eventually made the breakthrough in the 82nd minute thanks to a Fabian Balbuena header.

A Davinson Sanchez own goal in the 85th minute really spiced things up before Manuel Lanzini produced a stunning strike with the last kick of the game to grab a point.

Mourinho put a brave face on the obvious disappointment of the situation, dismissing the situation as just something that happens in football.

‘Football [happened] and of course I have to analyse the second half and I have to do it internally,’ Mourinho told Sky Sports. ‘For you I prefer to say that football happened and I prefer to praise West Ham’s belief

‘It’s not easy to be losing 3-0 and to be dominated, we had the game under control, it’s not easy to keep the belief.
