Jose Mourinho "asking for trouble" and Tottenham players are becoming negative

Jose Mourinho is “asking for trouble” with Tottenham’s recent form, says Jamie Redknapp.

The north London side could not stop Wolves from snatching points off them as they conceded a 1-1 draw at Moines.

Tangy Ndombele drove into the back of the net after just 58 seconds – but Romain Saiss’ 88th-minute header denied Spurs three points.

It meant that Mourinho’s side failed to take the opportunity to leap-frog into third place as they made it four Premier League games without a win.

And Jamie Redknapp, who spent three seasons at Tottenham, believes the latest performance showed the start of a worrying trait in the Portuguese boss’ side.

Speaking on Sky Sports after the draw, the pundit said: “I think the disappointment is they had it in their hands.

“If you’re going to keep sitting back, you’re asking for trouble.

“And this is not a one-off – there are many games where this has happened, so it’s becoming a pattern.

“The more often it happens, the more negative the players get.

“They start to think ‘it will happen again’. It transmits to the brain and it’s a major problem for Jose right now.”

Redknapp was the only one left frustrated, though, as Mourinho was left boiling during his post-match interview.

“One point against Wolves wouldn’t normally be a bad result as they are a strong opponent,” the manager said.

“But scoring a goal in the first minute and having control of the game and 89 minutes to score more goals is frustrating.”

When asked about where Tottenham need to improve, Mourinho kept tight-lipped.

“It’s not for me to talk with you about,” he brutally replied on Sky Sports .

“I know my team and my players better than anyone but I don’t want to go in that direction.”

“Every game is an opportunity and every game is dangerous.

“We have a run of matches against the top teams but I do not consider any matches more difficult

It comes as Toby Alderweireld slammed “negative labels” put on the north London side and praised his manager’s honesty.
