Tottenham were closing in on Chelsea in the race for top four following the appointment of Jose Mourinho, as the Portuguese’s appointment sparked a revival for Spurs.

A win for Spurs against Chelsea could have taken them level on points with Chelsea, but Frank Lampard’s side got a good 2-0 win at the Tottenham Stadium.

Despite the loss to his former club, Jose Mourinho still remains adamant of his project at the North London club.

Mourinho said: “Sunday hasn’t changed my mind.

“I am at Tottenham Hotspur. I know the profile of the club, I know the project, I know the vision, I know the objectives and I know that in our transfer market we are going just to react to things that can happen to us.

“Like I was saying, if a player leaves we need to adapt to it. But we are never going to be the kings of the market, attacking important targets, fighting with clubs that are ready by their profile and philosophy to splash the cash and go for important targets.

“We need to do our things in an intelligent way, a creative way, and I repeat: I like the players that I have.”
