Tottenham Hotspur have found themselves in the bottom half of the Premier League table in November for the first time since 2014.
The 2-1 defeat at Liverpool on Sunday saw the North London club’s miserable start to the new season continue.
A number of experienced players have continually failed to impress during the current campaign including Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose and Serge Aurier.
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has claimed that Tottenham should have cashed in on one of their players and landing a big name signing such as Gareth Bale.
Carragher highlighted the game in October 2017 where Spurs destroyed Liverpool 4-1 at Wembley with Mauricio Pochettino practically still operating the same side whereas Jurgen Klopp has made wholesale changes to his side and has turned them into Champions League winners and Premier League title contenders.
Spurs have consistently made it into the top four over the past few seasons but their eleven-year wait for silverware still continues.
“If you look at the Tottenham from two years ago, when they beat Liverpool 4-1, it’s exactly the same team now with Ndombele the only new signing they made,” Carragher told Sky Sports News at 2:29pm on 27/10/2019.
“Could they have refreshed it by cashing in on someone, rather than just keeping all the same players?
“They have been brilliant for years, but not quite good enough to make that step. Would Gareth Bale, if he had come back to Tottenham? A special player or two to make that difference.”
