Jose Mourinho ready for the summer after RB Leipzig defeat

Timo Werner of Leipzig celebrates with team mates after scoring the 1-0 lead from the penalty spot

Spurs are 1-0 behind on aggregate in the last-16 of the Champions League after losing at home to an impressive Leipzig outfit.

Tottenham's first-leg loss in the last-16 tie on Wednesday leaves last season's Champions League runners-up with a major challenge for the second match, which takes place in Germany on March 10. "It is not 10-0".

"I'm not anxious with the 1-0 - we can go there and win". The 1-0 is an open result.

Spurs are using Lucas Moura as a makeshift striker at the moment and Mourinho pointed out that Erik Lamela, his only attacking player on the bench, came on despite struggling with a thigh injury.

He added: "It's a pleasure but I know Liverpool play a lot of good players and I have to improve myself and to learn much more things to get on this level to play there". If you are to sign a player like that you are not going to go after him without intentions of getting involved regularly.

"We are speaking about a very hard situation and if I could, if I could, I would move immediately to the first of July", Mourinho said.

"There are two perspectives - an unbelievable group and awesome guys but another side you see how we are at the moment". If this was going to be the situation for the next couple of matches I would say OK.

Alli, playing as a striker, was withdrawn by Jose Mourinho after 64 minutes and looked stunned before throwing tape to the ground and then, after taking his place in the dug-out, hurling one of his boots also. I arrived here 12 points behind the fourth (team). "I think he was angry with his performance, not with me", he said.

"But as I was saying in some television (interviews), the Chelsea players were watching this game on TV, with nice sparkling water, with lemons and biscuits, enjoying the game and we play Saturday at 12 o'clock".

"What worries me is we have Premier League and FA Cup to play as well and that is our situation".
