Mourinho insists he’s happy with Spurs attacking options

Jose Mourinho insists he is happy with Tottenham’s attacking options despite their struggles in front of goal.

The north London side have endured an indifferent restart to the season and have won just once in their five league fixtures since the campaign’s resumption, with Spurs currently ninth and facing an uphill battle to secure European football for next season.

Thursday night’s lacklustre goalless draw with struggling Bournemouth further raised questions about the club’s attacking threat, the North London side failing to register a shot on target, with leading scorer Harry Kane having often cut an isolated figure since returning the side following a lengthy lay-off with a hamstring injury.

Mourinho, however, has no concerns regarding his attacking players and suggested the club will not enter the transfer market for new forward additions, believing Spurs ‘cannot get better players’ than the options currently at his disposal.

“Our attacking players are very good. We cannot get better players than what we have,” he said at his pre-match press conference.

“One thing is not scoring goals and the other is that the players are not good enough. They are good enough. I don’t want to replace my players.”

Spurs currently sit 10 points adrift of the top four ahead of Sunday’s North London derby, Arsenal currently a point better off in eighth.
