The Cottagers used their sense of injustice at having to play the rearranged game at short notice as motivation to earn a deserved point in north London.

'That doesn't mean you have to stand in your own box and defend, it means the team is compact, the team is close to each other. The issue for me was never about only having two days to prepare, I understand that and that was what we had in the Championship last season. "Disappointed with the one point, disappointed not to keep a clean sheet, disappointed not to keep control of the game better than we did", he said. Again we lose the man in the corner. "I'm happy that we are still very hungry and very ambitious and we want to do well". We're still very solid and very hungry as a team.

It became clear Spurs had awoken from their slumber and on 25 minutes they would go ahead through England skipper Harry Kane, the 27-year-old striker meeting Sergio Reguillon's perfectly weighted cross and hammering a diving header in off the post.

"I'm proud of the team because of how we played in the circumstances but I'm even more proud of them because they showed some real quality".

'It is costing points and many times it happens in the last part of the game.

Evans, who is now working on other movies , said: "There are other things that I'm working on right now". According to a recent rumor from Deadline , the answer seems to be.

"There are things that are individual mistakes". It's an area but at the same time I see a team that is growing and can cause many teams problems.

Spurs were originally due to host Fulham on December 30 before the game was postponed hours before kick-off due to a coronavirus outbreak within Parker's squad - which had frustrated Mourinho.

'I truly believe and I have to believe that we are dealing with honest people at Fulham, ' said the Spurs boss. There were two players on that pitch that had only trained for one day, they'd come back from Covid-19 and played in that game. "It's hard to speak right now because of the emotions, but we need more bravery, more focus in terms of organising the team and being solid as a team", Hojbjerg told broadcaster Amazon.

"We knew Mitrovic picked up an injury and was not a Covid situation".

"I owe no one an apology, this football club owes no one an apology", Parker said. "I have some sympathy with the players because we are still playing football and still being judged, and we are under the same stresses that brings".
