Tottenham midfielder Sandro has challenged his Tottenham team-mates to beat Manchester City and Manchester United after Sunday’s disappointing defeat to Newcastle United.
The Brazilian hardman replaced the ineffective Mousa Dembele at half-time on Sunday and left Tottenham fans wishing AVB had included him from the start as we were certainly a different team with Sandro in our midfield. On the flip side, it was possibly Mousa Dembele’s worst performance in a Spurs shirt to date.
The defeat to Pardew’s side means that going into the international break we sit seventh in the table and are five points behind the Library lot.
Yes, people say the Premier League is ‘open’ this year, but if we are to slip up against lesser sides then we need to make up for it by getting results against the ‘top four’. Something we have struggled with in previous seasons, two defeats against the Manchester lot would really dent our Champions League aspirations.
The Beast said in The Sun of Spurs’ hopes heading forward: “If you see teams in the top four, they win a lot of games in a row, five or more. We still have to do it.
“You have to win consecutive matches. Like from now, to win five games consecutively for this dream to come back.
“We did it last season but drew a lot at the end and that made the difference.
“Now it is time to go to City and beat them, then United. We must win those games after losing to Newcastle.”
He added: “It’s hard but we have to win something. We have a great team.
“It is just at the early stages of the season but we have to change.”
