Tottenham Aim To Be "Intelligent" In Transfer Window Under Jose Mourinho

Only James Milner and Joe Gomez from Jurgen Klopp's established first-team options started the match, and the former was forced off within ten minutes to add to a mountain of injury troubles, but the Reds rode out a tricky first half and dominated the second to book a famous victory over Carlo Ancelotti's full-strength Toffees. Mourinho does have the 17-year-old striker Troy Parrott, but he said it was "too soon" to think about relying on him.

Mourinho said he believed the news would be bad when he addressed media ahead of Sunday's Tottenham's FA Cup third-round clash at Middlesbrough.

"I think he'll flourish under someone like Mourinho, he'll get the best out of him, hopefully now he can go on, possibly get a run of games and grow into the Spurs shirt because I think he could be a great asset going forward". I think we're going to lose him for some period and because I am totally convinced of that I can anticipate that I don't want to be here with you crying in every press conference now.

"That was very clear for me and is very important for me to understand that before I came", said the Portuguese boss, who took over from the sacked Mauricio Pochettino in November.

If they don't, Spurs could swoop in and secure his services on a free transfer at the end of this season.

Jonathan Woodgate's Middlesbrough looked nailed on relegation candidates in the season's early weeks but have turned things around over the festive period with four straight wins in the Championship. "Handsome results as a outcome of fantastic work, step-by-step, phase-by-phase".

Whether or not Spurs embark on a lengthy cup run, they must address an erratic run of form that has seen them win just one of their last five games in all competitions.
