Mourinho insists Tottenham need to improve home form to challenge for Premier League

Tottenham vs Brighton

Sunday’s late Premier League kick-off will see Tottenham host Brighton.

Neither side are set to head into the clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in great form.

Spurs fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat against Antwerp in the Europa League on Thursday.

As for Brighton, they have picked up just one league win so far this season.

Though the Seagulls do play some nice football at times, their inability to keep clean sheets is really hampering Graham Potter’s men this term.

So, given Tottenham have such a solid attack in 2020/21, you would imagine the Lilywhites are favourites to pick up the win.

Jose Mourinho wants Tottenham to improve at home

And though Spurs are probably favourites for this tie, their home form is actually pretty woeful this term.

The Lilywhites began the Premier League season with a 1-0 loss at home to Everton.

Spurs have since drawn with Newcastle and West Ham at home, surrendering a three-goal lead in the latter of those ties.

As a result, ahead of his side’s latest meeting, Jose Mourinho has spoken out about Tottenham’s home record.

The Portuguese tactician stated Spurs have lost too many points at home and if they were a bit better at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, they would be top of the league:

“We are magnificent away from home [in the league].

“But at home we have lost too many points, and with these points, we would be there [Premier League leaders].”
