Jose Mourinho talks about Spurs performance and VAR to BT Sport after Watford 0-0 Tottenham clash. 

It was, to be exact, 10.04mm not over the line.

“I know it was only a couple of millimetres but goal-line technology does not make mistakes like VAR. We have to accept it was not a goal.”

“I talk about Tottenham’s performance separate from refereeing and VAR decisions because I prefer not to comment.

“Tottenham’s performance was good. We started very well. We were very dominant in the first half until they did what they always do – they had that period were they started winning more second balls, put more balls into the box and had one or two set plays. It’s impossible to always dominate them.

“In the second half the game was more 50-50. We tried with the ammunition we have in the last period to bring more energy, more vision and more quality with Eriksen and were a few millimetres from wining the match.

“Overall it was a good match.”

On refereeing decisions: “I leave the VAR decisions to the pundits.

“Gazza did a job for us and it’s an important save.

“I think we deserve to win this match. To lose would have been too harsh on the boys.”
