Mourinho credits Tottenham heart for terrific win as Arsenal record continues

Share

Son Heung-min scored the equalizer and set up the victor as Tottenham came from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 on Sunday, reviving hopes of European qualification for Jose Mourinho's faltering side.

According to Dr. Rob Wilson, a football finance expert at Sheffield Hallam University (via The Athletic's Charlie Eccleshare), qualifying for the Europa League potentially means making around £40 million for Tottenham, and an £80 million swing when set against the teams that don't make it.

Arsenal was on Sunday welcomed at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium by Spurs and both sides knew how important this game would be as they are both vying for European spots and the gunners lost all the three points thanks to a victor from Toby Alderweireld in the final minutes of the game. I think they were very controlled at that level.

"In my career I have only played the Europa League twice and I have won it twice".

Mourinho's side are not going to finish in the Champions League places, but there is still a chance that they could end up in the Europa League spots. We can have two days now to enjoy it but then it's time for Newcastle.

"I think we did have a little bit of luck to get three points". "I think we should do everything possible to play Europa League next season and we have to fight for that".

While the victory helps Spurs' European ambitions, it dealt a major blow to Arsenal's.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was proud of his players despite the defeat, telling Sky Sports: "We are really, really sad".

Alexandre Lacazette fired Arsenal into a 16th-minute lead but their advantage lasted less than three minutes as Son Heung-min capitalised on a slack Sead Kolasinac pass to equalise.

"Points-wise it is a massive blow because we know the results this weekend, but we will keep trying until we have no hope", he said. We are fighting in two different ways, one in the league and won in the FA Cup. We tried our best. "When I give it to him I feel bad, but congratulations to them, they got the points today and we will move forwards". "The personality they showed, nullify them and make them hit the ball long but with the two goals we gave away it's very hard", Arteta said after the match.
