Spurs boss Jose Mourinho: "We deserved three points" at Newcastle.

A late spot-kick at the Newcastle denied Spurs a deserved victory in the Premier League on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho expressed his satisfaction with how Tottenham performed in their 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on Sunday.

The Lilywhites were the better side at St. James' Park yesterday but a late, late penalty denied them the chance of securing their second win of the 2020-21 Premier League campaign.

Lucas Moura broke the deadlock in the 25th minute but Mourinho's boys failed to increase the lead despite having 26 shots in the game, although, goalkeeper Karl Darlow was magnificent on the day.

In extra time, the homeside were awarded a penalty after a VAR review showed the ball struck Eric Dier on the arm when midfielder Jonjo Shelvey’s free-kick was met by Andy Carroll, however, Callum Wilson fired home from the spot as the match ended 1-1.

Following the clash, the Portuguese said: “The performance was very good, so the performance was not heartbreaking, the performance was really good.

“That was a consequence of the evolution of the team, very solid defensively, not giving chances to the opponent, always in control, huge ball possession, lots of chances, Man of the Match has to be their goalkeeper... very, very happy with my team’s performance.

“The first half performance was really, really good, even the second half was solid. The team was always in control. We managed to keep them away from our box, but on one occasion we couldn’t, and we lost two points.

“It was an amazing performance, very good. We deserved the points. That’s football.”
