Tottenham Hotspur can largely attribute their four-game winless run in the Premier League to two things not being done: goals and dead balls

Are there other trends that should affect Mourinho’s men after losing seven points in four consecutive games against Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Palace, Liverpool, Leicester City and Wolves?

The lack of further attacks has to do with Jose Mourinho’s reputation and mentality, but the Portuguese say it’s not about instructions after Wolves scored a late goal in the 1-1 draw with Spurs at Molineux on Sunday has

“We had 89 minutes to score more goals and we didn’t,” Mourinho said of FootballLondon. “It was not just about not scoring goals, it was also about not being dangerous and not being ambitious For me that’s the problem. Of course we can go back to a corner, we can say we should win at Liverpool and we lost with a corner, we can say here we should win and we drew with a corner You can say that we should win against Crystal Palace and draw with a side free kick ”

A goal by Harry Kane in 23rd Minute at Selhurst Park tied 1-1 when Crystal Palace equalized after a third corner kick that resulted in a shot in four minutes In the 90 In the minute, Roberto Firmino from Liverpool headed a home corner four days later at Anfield

Throw in an odd 2-0 home loss to Leicester City that apparently neither side wanted the ball – Spurs got 57 percent of it but only eight of the game’s 17 shots – and you have 26 points instead of at least a share of the Premier League standings

Spurs have the second-stingiest defense in the Premier League this season after Man City and are linked to Aston Villa.Only five of the 15 goals conceded were in open play, with two corners, four from free kicks and four from penalties

And there are worrying signs in open play when it comes to the expected target division Spurs have scored 21 times from open play but his xG number is 1438 while his five goals conceded in this situation are in stark contrast to its 11 are 52 in xGA

Dec 13: Crystal Palace 1-1 Spurs
Dec 16: Liverpool 2-1 Spurs
Dec 20: Spurs 0-2 Leicester City
Sunday: wolves 1-1 spurs

Eight goals were conceded by Spurs by at least one goal, twelve after the half and eight in the last 15 minutes or after a break

Mourinho insists that the late concessions are less of a concern than the lack of an extra finish

“It’s more of a problem that we score early goals and don’t kill games,” he said. “Of course, Liverpool was about that the post didn’t want us to win the game and they aren’t expected to we go to Liverpool to have five, six or seven chances and score one, two, three or four goals”In this game, for example against Palace, there were games where an early goal was scored You have to try, and it’s that simple

“Even if we defend very well what we do as a team, that is not enough. It might be enough that we are defending the last quarter where we win 1-0, and maybe you are asking me other questions now. But my feeling would be exactly the same In the first minute we had 89 minutes to score more goals and we didn’t ”

Spurs have lost the xG fight in six of their last seven games: losing to Leicester City, beating Man City and Arsenal, and drawing against Chelsea, Wolves and Palace (they beat Liverpool 1) in 52-122 their 1: 2 defeat)

You will also find that these are very difficult matches. Improving and bustling Fulham is followed by leaky Leeds and hefty Aston Villa Sheffield United is ahead of Liverpool in north London after that
