Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-1 to Arsenal and Mourinho blamed his stars for the loss.
“Gareth and Tanguy, we need more intensity in that game. We need to press more, be more intense in the game,” he said.
“We needed initially Sissoko to give us that intensity in the midfield that Tanguy was not giving us. Then Dele was a player who had a desire to play and in the last match he did not complete the 90 minutes.
“He was fresh and had a good understanding with Harry.”
However, Mourinho conceded he was also broadly unimpressed with the Tottenham collective.
“It was a very, very poor first half,” he said, “We did not have intensity to run.
“Everybody was dropping back and nobody was looking to attack. Apart from Lucas [Moura] with some individual actions.
“If you’re a big player you play for Tottenham. I’m not saying it was player A or B. We do not individualise. Players hiding. We were poor.
“The only thing worse than our first half was that penalty.”
Jose also talked about Son’s injury.
“It’s muscular. Muscular is usually not easy,” he added. “He’s normally a guy who recovers quickly.
“It’s an accumulation of matches. I gave him 30 minutes’ rest in the last match, but it’s still 60 minutes.”
