The Lilywhites lost more ground at the top of the Premier League table after letting their lead slip yet again in Wednesday’s outing.

Jose Mourinho admits Tottenham lack the ability to “kill the game” after seeing his side drop points against Fulham.

A Harry Kane goal separated the two sides for most of the match until Ivan Cavaleiro found the equalizer with about a quarter of an hour left to play.

The home side thought they had regained their lead in the dying moments through Sergio Reguilon but the goal was disallowed due to offside.

Squandering yet another lead at home, Tottenham could only walk away with a point after being held to a 1-1 draw against Fulham.

Just two wins in their last eight league outings means they now sit at sixth in the Premier League table, and Mourinho insists his side must stop letting leads slip.

“Three or four big chances in the first half to have a different result and the biggest chance of the second half to kill the game and go 2-0, but again we conceded a goal that is completely avoidable,” Mourinho said post-match, via Daily Mail.

“I have to admit in the second half that they played more and they tried, they had to, but again we didn’t kill the game.

“It is costing points and many times it happens in the last part of the game.

“There are things that are individual – individual qualities and individual mistakes. Basically, I can not say much more than that.”
