Graham Roberts has taken to Twitter to share his reaction following Tottenham Hotspur’s 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Tottenham’s unbeaten start to the Premier League came to an end in emphatic fashion following a toothless display at Selhurst Park.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side lacked creativity and urgency to get the ball into attacking areas with Lucas Moura being their only shining light.

Roberts pointed the finger at Cristian Romero, Giovani Lo Celso and Davinson Sanchez who all missed the fixture and are currently in Croatia after their trip to South America to play international football ruled them out of the Palace clash due to quarantine rules within the UK.

The former defender believes the trio have let their team-mates down while also believing that senior players who took to the field against Palace should have done more to look to offer calming advice to Japhet Tanganga.

The academy product was sent off minutes after picking up a yellow card when he dived into a tackle, only to be shown a second booking and his marching orders which also rules him out of next weekend’s derby against Chelsea.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. No different to last season. The football in the first 3 games was also poor apart from the odd bits against city. We should never have given the job to nuno as he is not up to it. Conti was the man and levy blew it. We have been waiting for a decent forward to help Kane for the last five years and still have not got one. Levy is flogging Kane to death and he cannot do it on his own. He look shattered today and look like he had given up having to play with this dross. We never replaced Erickson and Emerson was run ragged by Zaha today. We have no chance of top 4 with this squad. Levy and Enic out.
