Jose Mourinho is adamant that his methods are ‘second to nobody in the world’ following Tottenham’s defeat to West Ham on Sunday.

The 2-1 loss to David Moyes’ side has left Spurs nine points behind West Ham, who currently occupy fourth spot in the Premier League.

Spurs have now lost five out of their last six Premier League matches, which has led to questions over Mourinho’s approach.

But the 58-year-old is confident that he is the right man to get Spurs out of their slump.

Asked if he questions his own way of working with his players after the defeat to West Ham, Mourinho replied: ‘No, not at all, not at all, zero.

‘Because sometimes the results are a consequence of multiple situations in football.

‘Mine and my coaching staff’s methods are second to nobody in the world.’

In a separate interview with the BBC, Mourinho also claimed that he is unable to solve some of the current ‘problems’ in Spurs’ squad.

‘I feel that we are not in the position in relation to our potential, even if I think for a long, long, long time that we have problems in the team that I cannot resolve by myself as a coach, I cannot resolve, and no coach can,’ said Mourinho.

‘But our potential is higher than where we are so of course [there is] frustration.

‘We should be in a much better position.’
