Another weekend and another poor performance from Tottenham Hotspur as they only managed a 1-1 draw at home to Watford, the bottom team in the league.

Unfortunately, a number of first-team Spurs stars failed to stand up to the task yet again at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Here are five Spurs players who let their fans down today against the Hornets:

Paulo Gazzaniga –

The stand-in keeper failed to make a long-term case for himself today between the sticks. While Gazzaniga had little to do in terms of making saves, he did receive the ball to feet multiple times. The Argentine looked nervous on the ball, sliced his kicks, and gave it straight back to Watford players far too often.

Danny Rose –

While Rose offered a decent attacking threat in the second half, he failed to go with his runner in the build-up to the Watford opener. One split-second mistake from the England fullback set the tone for the entire match and Spurs simply don’t have the quality of confidence to break down a stubborn defensive unit at the moment.

Harry Winks –

Winks’ entire game is based upon ball retention, driving forwards, and quick passing. Unfortunately, after an impressive display for England last week, Winks was unable to do any of the above today.

Jan Vertonghen –

Seemed to struggle with everything today. The Watford goal came down his left-hand side. He gave the ball away far too often. He was lucky not to give away a penalty. And he failed to create any space with his usual marauding runs.

Moussa Sissoko –

Guilty of the same mistakes as Harry Winks today. Spurs needed a strong core and someone to drive between the lines and provide some creative passes to the forwards. Unfortunately, that never really came from Sissoko or Winks.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Tottenham are slow on the ball and lose it too easily..Their game lacks cohesion, poor passwork and seem unable to penetrate any defence to score..They seem to have lost their touch. They need ‘new blood’, perhaps a new Manager and a couple of new players..

  2. The whole defence was awful, but Aurier was really the worst of the lot and yet doesn’t feature in the above, it makes me wonder what game you were watching
