Mourinho: "For weeks I have been saying that Bale is improving ..."

Mourinho:

Bale's first Tottenham goal since re-joining Spurs on loan from LaLiga champions Madrid in September sealed a 2-1 victory over Brighton on Sunday to move them up to second in the Premier League, two points behind leaders Liverpool.

Maupay is said to have been embroiled in a "heated incident" with a colleague in the days leading up to the Spurs game and this is thought to have contributed to his surprise omission.

"I know for a couple of weeks that I am telling you that Gary [Bale] is improving", the Portuguese coach said. "It's not just from watching him". "He knows his body better than anyone - we know where we want to go and he's with us on that journey. We share ideas and feelings".

"He deserves that [the goal]". When I have five minutes I am going to (Internet browser) Safari to look at Madrid's website to see what they say.

"He showed great personality and had a great impact, scoring a very important goal for us".

"But I think we reacted really well, we were resilient". He's very calm, very intelligent. You'll have to ask him how he feels but I'm sure he feels great to get his first goal.

"He doesn't have 90 minutes in his legs yet", he added. The Europa League is helping him pick up the pace.

"He is, of course, getting better and better and better".

However, it wasn't a straightforward call once again and Keown, speaking on Match of the Day 2, insisted it was Kane who was putting another player at risk with his play.

Eric Dier can not understand why Brighton's goal in Tottenham's Premier League win over Brighton was allowed to stand, but praised the reaction of his side.

His timely intervention, just 200 seconds after entering the fray, lessened the furore over the Seagulls' equaliser, as Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg looked to have been fouled by Solly March before the ball was worked to Lamptey. While referee Graham Scott did consult the pitchside monitor he did not alter his decision and Mourinho hinted at his frustrations with the goal and the use of VAR.

"I see Scott as a good referee".

"But we scored straight away and then fair enough I think we were comfortable in the way we saw out the game". "He should explain it but I know that is not going to happen".
