Tottenham started the season with a home defeat to Everton. Ancelotti won, and Jose Mourinho criticized the referees after the match.
Tottenham started the new Premier League season badly – Jose Mourinho’s team lost 0: 1 to Carlo Ancelotti at home. Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the winning goal early in the second half with a cool header.
“I am disappointed with the game and the result. We had the greatest chances in the first half. Pickford took important balls. In the second half, we could not create anything after conceding a goal, and they dominated. The goal was a bit odd. This does not justify us, but when there are so many referees on the pitch, it is unbelievable that they execute the penalty 5 meters away from the penalty spot. Five meters is not a bit. Such a distance can change a lot. However, I do not want to talk much about this incident. Due to a very strange preparation period, some of my players are not in shape. “Congratulations to my good friend Carlo Ancelotti and Miss Everton, of course,” said Jose Mourinho after the match, who told a pre-match press conference that he needed new players, especially a striker.
Also noteworthy that Mourinho’s team loses the first match of the season for the first time. Prior to that, Jose’s teams either won the first round matches or drew – 11 wins, 7 draws.
