Another week and another win without a game, we have yet to get out of second gear this season
Pleased for Dele Alli to get off the mark, just a shame for him that his first ever goal for the club wasn’t one which secured all 3 points.
It was well highlighted on Match Of The Day but they way we were set up after scoring was near abysmal – it was almost as if we thought “we’ve got the winner, job done” and then we got subsequently punished.
Vertonghen was very lucky not to have given away a Penalty after his tackle on Mahrez. Some days they go for you and some days they go against you.
We struggled to deal with Mahrez all game, he looked a handful – the only positive you could take from that is if you had him in your Fanasty Football Team
Still think Moussa Dembele playing wide right isn’t ideal especially as he always looks to be cutting inside, I know we’ve been banging the drum about getting new strikers but I still think we need one more wide midfielder as well.
No crisis yet for Harry Kane who had a decent game yesterday but the longer this mini drought goes on then the more “second season syndrome” rears it’s ugly head
We nearly from 3 points to 1 point to none but for the reactions of Hugo Lloris who thankfully managed to parry Wes Morgan’s header away late on.
The bench looked incredibly light – almost that of a side competing for Championship promotion.
If this game took on some importance to get a first league win on the board then next weeks encounter at home to Everton takes on even more.
Saido Berahino isn’t in the squad to face Chelsea today – I really hope that means a move to Tottenham is imminent
A few other thoughts looking at Andre Ayew’s and Yohan Cabaye’s performances (albeit briefly) yesterday then why on earth did we not sign these two over the Summer.
Let’s just hope Saturday we can finally start our season proper and get a first win on the board. Come On You Spurs
