Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has singled out Sean Dyche, Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood for praise following his side’s Premier League 1-0 victory over Burnley on Monday night.
Mourinho described Dyche as a very experienced manager, while Barnes and Wood were very aggressive against Spurs.
Tottenham defeated Burnley at Turf Moor, thanks to Son Heung-min’s second-half goal.
“They need points, Sean (Dyche, Burnley manager) is very experienced, he knows his players better than anyone, he knows how to try to stop the better teams to play the football they want,” Mourinho told Tottenham’s official website after the game.
“They press very well, they defend very well, their two strikers (Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood) are very aggressive, and it’s the kind of opponent that in any moment, a long ball in the box or a set-piece and they can score, so it was about being solid and we were that, and it was about getting one of the chances we had.
“We didn’t have many, we scored one, and we have three points – very important points,” he said.
