Jose Mourinho snapped at a TV reporter after she asked him to explain why he didn’t bring on Gareth Bale during Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat by Chelsea.

Spurs lacked a cutting edge without injured talisman Harry Kane and went behind to Jorginho’s 24th-minute penalty on Thursday night.

Mourinho turned to Lamela and Lucas Moura as the home side chased the game rather than Real Madrid loanee Bale, who was left unused.

Asked by journalist Alison Bender why he did not come on, he replied: ‘Good question. You do not deserve to know the answer.’

Quizzed about it again in his press conference he said: ‘I am trying my best. Gareth is trying his best. Everyone is trying their best.’

Spurs almost snatched an unlikely point when Carlos Vinicius headed Serge Aurier’s cross just past the far post late on.

Mourinho says he can see a spirit in his squad despite suffering a third successive Premier League loss after a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea.

Spurs’ league season is imploding. Since travelling to Anfield at the summit on December 16 they have lost five of their next nine games, including three in a row for the first time since 2012.

They are suffering with injuries with the likes of Kane, Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli ruled out, but Mourinho insists he is seeing a togetherness in his squad.

‘We’re trying to go on the search but I saw togetherness. It’s not easy to see togetherness with bad results, defeats, difficulties, injuries,’ he said.

‘Togetherness is very easy to show when you’re on a high and winning matches, when everything is amazing.

‘But in difficult moments it’s more difficult to see that togetherness but I saw that in the second half. No doubts for me
