Tottenham caves in late again to frustrate Mourinho

Defending leads used to be a forte of Jose Mourinho but not anymore. His Tottenham team has caved in again by conceding an 85th-minute goal to draw 2-2 at Newcastle and stay outside the top four of the Premier League. Tottenham has dropped 11 points because of goals conceded in the final 10 minutes of games this season which is the most of any Premier League side. If Spurs were better at seeing out victories they could already be preparing for life in next season’s Champions League but they are in fifth place. Manchester United beat Brighton 2-1 to consolidate second place and restore the 14-point gap to leader Manchester City. Aston Villa and Southampton also won.
