It was the third consecutive loss of Jose Mourinho to his student Frank Lampard, with the Portuguese himself repeatedly justifying the absence of injured strikers Hyun-Min Son and Harry Kane. Sherwood, however, did not accept this apology, damaging how weak the team performance in the derby was.
“Tottenham were terrifying. The performance was very low and the approach was so negative,” the Englishman began.
“Mourinho continues to remind us of the lack of Kane and Son, but they have Berwyn, who has good ball-free movement and Lucas Moura, who is also fast. Both had 15 goals last season.”
“As a coach, you have to look for solutions. You can’t just say you have no attackers and give up,” Sherwood concluded.
