Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho says his team needs to learn to "kill off" games after being held to a 1-1 draw by Fulham on Wednesday evening.

Cottagers goalkeeper Alphonse Areola was in inspired form at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as he kept Son Heung-Min at bay on several occasions.

We have bad results and we should - and we could have - avoided these results.

After a slow start, Harry Kane headed Spurs in front in the 25th minute, but they failed to capitalise on further chances.

Son hit the post in the second half and his miss was punished minutes later as Ivan Cavaleiro climbed above the home defence to head into the bottom corner past Hugo Lloris.

Spurs' unbeaten run was extended to six matches, while Fulham are also unbeaten in six after a spirited display in north London.

While Fulham boss Scott Parker was left delighted, Mourinho says his team only have themselves to blame.

He told BBC Sport: "We have to kill a game and we didn't - but you have to keep a clean sheet, not make mistakes, so it was a very avoidable goal. The markers are there; there wasn't even an advantage in terms of numbers.

"Fulham were intelligent enough to understand the way they play, they change, they become more defensive, and they are getting results. I thought they were a bit lucky, but they were good.

"We have bad results and we should - and we could have - avoided these results."

Spurs now face a trip to Bramall Lane to take on Sheffield United on Sunday, with the Blades unbeaten in two ahead of kick-off.

Chris Wilder's side are 4.50 to win, the draw is 3.60, while Spurs are 1.83 to leave South Yorkshire with all three points.
