Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho accused his side of lacking ‘ambition’ after Romain Saiss’ late goal gave Wolves a draw at Molineux.

Tanguy Ndombele scored in the first minute in Wolverhampton but Spurs’ last shot on target in the game came in the 21st minute.

While Wolves were restricted to few chances against Spurs but the away side showed little in an attacking sense after their opener and their one-goal advantage meant one mistake could prove costly.

Spurs have thrown away points against Crystal Palace, Newcastle, West Ham and Liverpool in the dying stages of matches this term and Saiss’ goal means there’s now a worrying trend of capitulating at the death.

‘I am frustrated with the result, we had control of game, we had 89 minutes to score more goals and we didn’t,’ Mourinho said.

‘It’s not just about not scoring but also not being dangerous and ambitious and for me that’s the problem. 

‘But I don’t think is very, very obvious to go in that direction and not to go in other directions. The other direction for me is you score a goal in the first minute, you have 89 minutes to score more goals and we didn’t.

‘It’s disappointing (to concede as they did) and tomorrow we are going to have a similar meeting of other meetings we’ve had and we’re going to practise the same thing we practised that we have after other situations. But we have 89 minutes to score more goals.’ 

Spurs face back-to-back home games with Fulham and Leeds to travel to north London in the next week.

Mourinho made several changes for the trip to Molineux, with Ben Davies, Davinson Sanchez and Harry Winks retaining their spots from the Carabao Cup win against Stoke.

Moussa Sissoko, Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura could face Fulham.
