“He’s bang on with that” – Some Spurs fans react to midfielder’s comments


As expected, Mauricio Pochettino’s tactics have come under scrutiny after Bayern Munich thrashed Spurs 7-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Tuesday night.

While Spurs started the game on the front foot and deservedly went ahead through Son Heung-Min, Bayern manage to overturn the scoreline before half time courtesy of two excellent finishes.

However, it was the second half where Spurs really let the game go with Mauricio Pochettino bringing off Tanguy Ndombele, Dele Alli and Harry Winks for Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela in the hope of dragging his team back into the game.

Those changes left the home side exposed to the counter attack with Bayern running riot with the scoreline.

After the game, Spurs midfielder Moussa Sissoko admitted to French TV channel RMC Sport that the players find it difficult to play a diamond formation as they get tired very quickly.

This comment served to anger some Spurs even further as they were bewildered as to why Pochettino fails to see the faults with the system.

The one advantage in playing a 4-4-2 diamond is the fact that it enables both Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane to play upfront whereas Son will likely have to play wide in a 4-2-3-1, which would diminish his goal threat. However, it is clear by now that the diamond leaves us exposed at the back and unless the Argentine plans on bringing Eric Dier or Victor Wanyama back into the side, he should bin the system for now.
