Jose Mourinho told talkSPORT that Harry Kane ‘did it all’ in Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday.
The talismanic Spurs forward put on a magnificent display from start to finish as Heung-min Son and Giovani Lo Celso grabbed the goals.
Mourinho reacted to talkSPORT’s Sam Matterface: “Today we had a plan and the players know what they did to follow that plan, how difficult it was.
“The plan was not at all easy, especially because it was built on the basis of theoretical and tactical meetings and not on pitches because we had no conditions for it.
“I’m happy with that, I’m happy that everyone is playing for the team.
“You see for example the performance of Harry Kane, he did everything, he did everything for the team.
“And I went from Serge Aurier to Steven Bergwijn, all the players had the same mentality and I used to say that the most difficult thing in the team to be stable is the attitude.
“We’re getting there, the players are getting there.”
The result left Tottenham at the top of the league on Saturday night, although Leicester would regain the position if they beat Liverpool on Sunday.
“It feels good, but if Leicester wins tomorrow and he’s at the top of the league again, that’s not a problem at all for me,” Mourinho continued.
“I’m not focused on this, I’m focused on the process.
“On the process, you compare your team – how your team was three months ago, how your team was eight months ago, how your team was a year ago and that’s the problem for me.
“It’s the process and I’m very happy with a lot of things, a lot of things. We have so much to improve, but I’m happy.
Guardiola’s post-match interview was of course much less optimistic.
Despite being at the forefront for much of the game, City couldn’t find the net.
“They scored the two chances they had, we didn’t score the number of chances we had,” Guardiola told talkSPORT’s Sam Matterface.
“We gave the first goal, we have to defend better, we have to score more goals.
“The numbers don’t lie to us.
“We created enough chances to score, but we didn’t score.”
