    NOT A GOOD LOOK

    Paul Merson reckons Spurs are already looking like Manchester United towards the end of Jose Mourinho’s reign there.

    After the Chelsea defeat, he told Sky Sports: “Honestly, you are watching them play and there was no game plan.

    “It was like watching Manchester United at the end of his [Mourinho's] reign.

    “It was unbelievable. No-one knew what to do, no-one was getting forward and everybody looked fearless of giving the ball away.

    “They keep on getting away with it and sooner or later, they will be on end of one, they are going to be on the end of a three, four or five.”

    VAR ERROR

    Video Assistant Referee David Coote was asked to explain why he did not send off Giovanni Lo Celso in Spurs’ game at Chelsea.

    The Argentina international appeared to stamp on Cesar Azpilicueta.

    Coote admitted he was wrong, but explained why he did not send off the Spaniard, according to the Athletic.

    He was told that if he had doubt he should have instructed on-field ref Michael Oliver to go over the to pitch-side monitor and review the incident himself, something Oliver never did.

    Chelsea were left seething at the incident.
