Lingard gets Mourinho into trouble despite Bale's recital

Tottenham reaps a new defeat in which they brushed the comeback. Great performance from the Welshman who left with an assist and a ball to the crossbar.

If it were not for the pandemic, if not for that armored contract that the Portuguese has until the summer of 2023, the continuity of José Mourinho could be in doubt. Two victories and six defeats in the last eight games, including the elimination of the cup, leave the team in the middle of the table, a world of the throne (20 points difference) and half a planet of the Champions League positions. Nine points that separate him, precisely, from a West Ham that today, simply, was better than Tottenham despite the assistance and the ball to the crossbar from Bale. Without palliative or ambiguity, without controversies or injuries that could justify a new stumble of the spurs.

And it is that, from the first moment, specifically from minute 5, it was seen that Tottenham was not where it had to be. A Bowen center behind the centrals, who were noted to be lacking in rapport, left Antonio completely alone so that, in two halves due to the initial stop by Lloris, he opened the scoring.

In the second half, Lingard, who had his goal disallowed for offside at first, widened the gap after VAR confirmed he was in legal position. The Englishman, who had not been given a ball at Manchester United (he has been 7 games this season), has been breaking it since he arrived at West Ham in the winter market. Four games with four stellar performances and three goals included, which show that the Englishman, who is still young, is hungry to regain his lost prominence.

It was then that the best minutes of Mou's began, and Bale, who had entered the second half, placed a perfect corner so that Lucas Moura, with his 173 centimeters high, headed imperially at the first post a ball that reached kiss the squad before entering. The Welshman, shortly after, sent a missile to the crossbar of those that make you think that the player is not that he can not, it is that, who knows why, he does not want to. After the 90th minute, a clearance by the hammer defense against Son resulted in an involuntary vaseline and a ball to the post that could have changed the fate of the game, but finally the three points remained at the London Olympics.
