Jose Mourinho admitted Tottenham Hotspur were not "strong enough to cope with it psychologically" as they dramatically surrendered a 3-0 lead to draw at home to West Ham United who spoiled Gareth Bale's homecoming to the club.

"I don't think so," Mourinho said.

Mourinho dismissed suggestions that Bale's second debut for the club he left on 2013 for a world-record fee to Real Madrid had been a distraction as the forward came off the substitutes' bench in the 71st minute and with the game seemingly won.

"The decision not to start him was a good decision.

My guys were not strong enough to cope with it psychologically.

In an extraordinary comeback West Ham became the first team in Premier League history not to lose after being three goals down in the 81st minute with substitute Manuel Lanzini, with the last kick of the game, claiming a point with a stunning strike.

"Of course I have to analyse the second half and have to do it internally, but for you I prefer to say football happened, and praise West Ham's belief," Mourinho maintained.
