Mourinho congratulates Liverpool for 'amazing run'

Liverpool finally lost at home for the first time in 69 games as a late Ashley Barnes was enough for the 'Clarets' to secure the win as Spurs boss Mourinho paid tribute to the Reds.

Speaking to the media ahead of Tottenham's FA Cup Fourth round clash away to Wycombe Wanderers on Monday, Jose Mourinho congratulated Liverpool for their long unbeaten home run which ended at the hands of Burnley on Thursday night at 68 with the Portuguese manager's record at Chelsea from 2004-2008 still intact at 86 games.

‘But there are some records that you look to them and you feel that it’s almost impossible for somebody to do it.

‘And honestly what Liverpool did was amazing. What they did is very, very difficult to achieve.
