"One mistake. We don't win the ball in the air. Second mistake. We don't win the second ball on the ground. Third mistake. We don't cover inside, the full-back inside when Eriksen comes. Four mistakes. Four mistakes after 15 seconds and you are losing 1-0 against a good team," Mourinho was quoted as saying by the Independent. 

"And then a good reaction, we played in their half, we create something, the feeling was we are in the game but the second goal I don't say ridiculous I say unlucky. It's a different thing than ridiculous and after that Tottenham has the game in their hands and they are very good in counter attack, they press well," the Portuguese tactician added.
