Jose Mourinho watched Tottenham's penalty shootout vs Norwich on the bench by himself

Tottenham Hotspur v Norwich City - FA Cup Fifth Round

Tottenham have been knocked out of the FA Cup after defeat to Norwich on Wednesday.

Spurs looked as if they would progress to the quarter-finals when Jan Vertonghen headed home after 13 minutes.

Jose Mourinho's side held the lead for over an hour but Norwich restored parity with just over 10 minutes remaining through Josip Drmic.

Neither side could find a winner in extra-time and the game was decided by penalties.

When Eric Dier scored and then Kenny McLean missed the opening spot-kicks, Spurs were the favourites to progress.

But the momentum swung when Erik Lamela blazed over the bar and Troy Parrott saw his effort saved.

Gedson Fernandes had to score to keep Tottenham in the competition but he saw his effort saved by Tim Krul, sending them crashing out.

It was another bad night for Spurs under Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese manager's actions during the penalty shootout has been captured.

While the rest of the players not involved and staff huddled together on the sidelines, Mourinho sat on the bench by himself to watch the shootout.

He couldn't possibly see so he had a screen beside him so he could see the action close up.

He then trudged down the tunnel almost immediately after Fernandes' penalty was saved and Tottenham's exit was confirmed.

It's unknown why Mourinho decided to do this. Maybe he was just nervous and simply couldn't watch the shoot-out first hand.

But it's hardly actions of a man that's supposed to be leading the team from the front.

Sitting cross-legged on the bench also didn't give the impression that he cared too much about the result.

To go down the tunnel almost immediately after they were knocked out of the competition also raises eyebrows. 

The north London side's only chance of silverware this season now comes in the shape of the Champions League.

But they look set to crash out of that too after losing their last-16 first leg 1-0 at home to RB Leipzig.

It seems Tottenham's wait for a trophy will go on for at least another season.
