Spur’s midfielder Dele Alli says it might have been a merger of “Vanity and over confidence” that treat his side’s 2-1 defeat by Man United in premier League on Wednesday.
Rashford put Manchester United ahead but a pieces of technical brilliance from Alli brought Tottenham level only for 49th minute Rashford penalty to secure the three point for the hosts.
Spurs came into the game for three match winning streak under the new manager Mourinho but failed to build on that moment at the Old Trafford.
Alli told reporters, “we had to match their energy. We lost the game not by them ouyplaying us just attitude”. We are not hungry enough and we slow to every second game, 50-50s.
Likely it was a little bit vanity and over confidence. We have been playing well.
“We have to learn from this. Game like this bring your feet back down”.
The result saw Tottenham Spurs eighth in the table
