Tim Sherwood claims that Tottenham Hotspur produced a 'disgusting performance' during Saturday's Premier League defeat at Chelsea.

Tim Sherwood has slammed the tactics of Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho after the defeat to Chelsea on Saturday afternoon.

Although the North London outfit only succumbed by a 2-1 scoreline at Stamford Bridge, they were outplayed for large periods by their rivals.

Sherwood, a former boss of Spurs, feels that the players produced a 'disgusting performance', not helped by the "negative" gameplan of Mourinho.

Speaking to Premier League Productions, Sherwood said: "Tottenham were absolutely disgusting. They were so bad. The negative approach.

"Yes, they have injuries to Son [Heung-min] and to [Harry] Kane, Mourinho keeps reminding us of that, but they've got [Steven] Bergwijn there who can run in behind, they've got [Lucas] Moura who has pace. If they've got anything, they've got pace.

"They both got 15 goals last season which is not the end of the world. You have to find a different way. As a coach sometimes you can't say, 'oh we don't have a striker' and throw the towel in. If you said to Jose beforehand, 'Would you take a 0-0?' he would have taken your arms off. It's not about that, it's a London derby."

Spurs now sit in sixth position in the Premier League standings.
