Gary Neville believes Jose Mourinho’s body language in the loss to Manchester United on Sunday is a huge concern for Tottenham.
Spurs were left six points outside the top four after falling to United 3-1, after taking the lead at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

With seven league games remaining, their chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League are dwindling rapidly, and a win over Manchester City in this month’s Carabao Cup final appears to be their only hope of saving. the season.

Tottenham saw the Son Heung-min opener canceled by Fred on Sunday, before Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood scored late goals to earn three crucial points for United.

And Neville said Mourinho’s reaction to his side’s pursuit was a “real worry” for Spurs fans.

“In the last five or six minutes it didn’t look like a reinvigorated Jose Mourinho on the sideline, pushing his team forward or pushing his team forward,” Sky Sports expert said. on the Gary Neville podcast.

Looking ahead to the Carabao Cup final on April 25, Neville added: “It’s a huge day for Tottenham in two weeks – a big day for Jose Mourinho and a big day for these players.

“They could improve their game, there is no doubt that they have players who could cause problems for City, but I just watched him for the last five or ten minutes and there was a void in his face where he just didn’t look engaged. and that would be a concern.

“With 10 minutes remaining you are sometimes wary of calling the game in Manchester United terms, but it almost felt like United were in total control – Spurs weren’t throwing any punches.

“You’d expect a home team with a goal behind them to punch them 10 minutes from the finish. “

Neville said he was not claiming Mourinho lost the dressing room – but insisted that Spurs’ apparent lack of desire “didn’t feel right”.

“Even when United were around the corner and counting the clock, there was no rush to get the ball back,” he said.

“Usually you see teams scrambling to get the ball back, fight with the players, push them back and I haven’t seen it.

“It would be a real worry for me. It’s body language, it’s the intention you want to see in a team. I didn’t like what I saw in the second half for Spurs and that doesn’t mean they turned on. the manager, he lost the locker room, I don’t say those things, but I didn’t like it. It didn’t sound good to me. ”
