Tottenham Hotspur’s poor run of form continued yesterday after they were held to a 1-1 draw at Burnley.

While the point did end a run of four consecutive defeats it has only increased the club’s slim chance of pushing for a finish in the top four.

Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho was critical of his side’s performance during the first half  of the match at Turf Moor by claiming that he did not have a midfield in an apparent dig at club record signing Tanguy Ndombele (BBC).

While the second half display was a vast improvement, it was not enough to take all three points back to North London.

Another boss who was left unimpressed with the efforts of his players was RB Leipzig boss who claimed the display did not bode well ahead of Tuesday night’s Champions League round of sixteen second leg tie against the North Londoners.

Leipzig missed out on the chance to pull level with Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga, held to a 0-0 draw at Wolfsburg.

Nagelsmann benched Timo Werner after his star striker had only been able to train once over the past two weeks.

“A draw was the right result as we weren’t good enough to win. We were laboured and slow in our build-up,” he told the Malay Mail.

“We didn’t create any space. We need to become dangerous again in front of goal before the Tottenham game.”
