Jose Mourinho, Tottenham Hotspur manager, has said that his team defeated Manchester United 6-1 in the Premier League because they were prepared very well, both tactically and psychologically.
Tottenham defeated Man United at Old Trafford, thanks to goals from Tanguy Ndombele, Son Heung-min (2), Harry Kane (2), and Serge Aurier.
It was Bruno Fernandes that scored the only goal for Manchester United.
In his speech after the game, while speaking to Sky Sports, Mourinho said: “Manchester United does not lose many matches, to lose by six is of course not every day. Historical victory but in the end three points and three very important points because we lost five points at home.
“We prepared ourselves very well tactically and also psychologically, the team was ready. So ready that a penalty in the first minute and going 1-0 down didn’t affect the team at all.
“Some people can say you play against 10 men for a long time which is true but for me it’s also true that 11 v 11 we were playing extremely well, we were creating huge problems, we were winning 2-1 and they couldn’t find solutions to control us.”
