- Story Text: The sight of Tottenham Hotspur team mates Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min clashing at halftime during their 1-0 victory over Everton on Monday (July 6) was "beautiful" and a sign that the team are growing up, manager Jose Mourinho has said.
Goalkeeper Lloris and forward Son had to be held apart by team mates shortly after Everton's Richarlison had gone close to an equaliser, with Lloris clearly angry at Son for not tracking back in the build-up to the chance.
Mourinho said his players were fired up by his criticism of their limp performance in Thursday's (July 2) 3-1 defeat by Sheffield United and said the incident showed they were demanding more of each other.
The victory was Mourinho's 200th in the Premier League and moved Spurs up to eighth.
