Tottenham again missed a chance to consolidate their top four credentials after conceding a late equaliser against Fulham on Wednesday.

This has been a feature of recent games and boss Jose Mourinho was asked what needs to change going forward to avoid such an outcome.

"We need to score the goals that we can and we need not to make mistakes that punish us," he said.

"If you compare [Fulham goalkeeper Alphonse] Areola's moments to Hugo [Lloris'] moments. Areola made a couple of impossible saves that could have killed the match. Also the post, then a defensive mistake and a goal.

"It looks complicated but it is really simple, a basic analysis of the game. I'm the first one that digs very deep to understand what my team has to improve.

"But going to the basics: you score goals you kill matches, you don't score goals, if you don't make mistakes you win. If you make defensive mistakes, you can be punished."
