The Portuguese manager rued several mishaps as his side was dumped out of the FA Cup
Jose Mourinho said Tottenham’s performance reminded him of “the mouse and the cat” after Spurs fell short in a back-and-forth FA Cup clash with Everton.
Tottenham ended up on the wrong side of a thrilling 5-4 fifth-round clash, with Everton needing a goal from Bernard in extra time to move past Mourinho’s side.
Wednesday’s match was the highest-scoring game of Mourinho’s Spurs tenure as well as the highest-scoring FA Cup game between two top-flight teams since February 1961 when Sheffield Wednesday won 7-2 against Manchester United.
What’s next for Tottenham?
Spurs are set to travel to the Etihad this weekend to take on Manchester City, who made short work of Swansea in their own FA Cup match.
After that, Tottenham will then take on Wolfsberger in Austria to kickstart their first tie of the Europa League knockouts
