Journalist, Jonathan Veal, revealed a rather damning Tottenham statistic last night after the Lilywhites dropped another two points in the Premier League against Wolves.

Spurs have now gone four games without a win in the competition, picking up just two points from a possible 12 in that time.

Veal claimed that out of the 15 goals that Spurs have conceded this season, 10 of them have come from set-pieces – including free-kicks, corners and penalties. Four came from the spot and six from lateral free-kicks or corners.

One week ago against Liverpool, Spurs defended for their lives only to throw away a vital point thanks to poor marking from a late corner.

This time around, Spurs conceded to Wolves in the 86th minute, with Saiss stealing a march on the front post to flick home past Hugo Lloris.

In his post-match press conference, Mourinho revealed that Tottenham would hold a team meeting about the defensive shortcomings from set-pieces, implying that they have held similar inquests in the near past.

He said (Football London): “Look it’s disappointing. Tomorrow we will have a similar meeting of meetings we’ve had.”

  1. What the need to do is address the shortcomings of their overall play. Too little possession, too not enough pressing, too little creativity and too little attacking forward play. This team sits back and allows the opposition to press time after time, it’s no wonder they are leaking goals and losing points….. and it’s abysmal to watch, you are putting our club to shame where is the fight!
