Tottenham chief Daniel Levy must back Jose Mourinho with new signing or face Man Utd issue

Wingers Steven Bergwijn and Erik Lamela were given unfamiliar roles up front with Mourinho revealing his frustration to Sky Sports before the game, while admitting he hopes a new signing will be made before the end of the window.

He said: “Nobody [will play as No 9]. We don’t have a nine, today we don’t have a nine.

“Sonny [Heung-min Son] is injured, Harry has a big game to play on Thursday, we have to protect him. In this moment we don’t have.

“The club is making an effort to try to give us, which I believe until the last day we are going to make it happen, but we are a different club to others, we have to do it in different ways and that’s what we are trying to do as a club. But today we don’t have that No 9.”
