Dele Alli and Son Heung-min were on song for Tottenham as they helped secure three points for Spurs against Norwich on Wednesday night.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has bemoaned his lack of attacking players in his squad following long-term injury to star player Harry Kane.

Mourinho suffered another blow to his squad when Harry Winks limped off with an injury and admitted he had no options on the bench to shake up his attack.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho complained he didn’t have a second striker compared to Chelsea who have Michy Batshuayi.

“It is a very important victory for us against a difficult opponent,” Mourinho told BBC Sport. “We suffered in the second half and we only have ourselves to blame.

“We are in a situation when I have to think, think, think. I look to the bench and we don’t have attacking players. I had to take off Erik Lamela because of fatigue but we showed an incredible reaction to score a second goal.

“When Chelsea want to win, they bring on Michy Batshuayi. When Manchester City want to change Gabriel Jesus, they bring in Sergio Aguero.

“We are so, so unlucky with injuries. We get back Hugo Lloris and we lose Harry Winks. It’s incredible.”

Meanwhile, Spurs are closing in on Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose, and Goal can confirm that the London side are in talks to sign the Brazilian frontman.

According to reports, the 28-year-old is keen on a move to Mourinho’s side, though negotiations are ongoing over an agreeable transfer fee.
