Tottenham came into the season with a lot of optimism on the back of making some impressive additions in the summer. With the team starting the season back in North London for the first time in three seasons, Spurs fans would have hoped that the club could have made the new stadium a fortress.
However, that hope has been dealt a huge set back early in the season as Spurs fell to a 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle in what just the second home game of the season and a three-point banker on paper.
Spurs really needed the three points in order to keep up with Manchester City and Liverpool who both registered comfortable 3-1 wins last weekend.
The result has led to many people to already right off Tottenham’s chances of competing with last season’s front two.
However, Tottenham striker Harry Kane doesn’t feel that all hope is lost. While he admits that it would take a monumental effort to keep with City and Liverpool, he insisted that it was still early days and that the Lilywhites were still capable of putting a run together.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Kane said, “It is still going to take a lot of hard work. As you’re seeing from Manchester City and Liverpool there is no letting up from them.
“I said before the start of the season that if we could put a run together, get that momentum, maybe winning for two to three months on the spin without dropping any points, then that’s what it’s going to take.
“I knew we had to keep up with them, make sure we win, especially at home. It is disappointing that we haven’t done that in only our second home game.
“But there is still a long way to go, there are a lot of big games ahead of us. It just means we are going to have to pick up points in the big games, the tough games and try to improve on what we did against Newcastle.
“It’s a disappointing start but there is a long way to go.”
Spurs Web Opinion
All three of Tottenham’s performances this season have left a lot to be desired and we certainly don’t look like we are on the same level as top two. However, there is no doubt that there is a massive overreaction on social media to just one defeat. The team will put a run together once the new players find their feet and settle into a new system.
