Harry Redknapp has admitted his side has struggled without the attacking trio of Luka Modric, Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe.
Modric has been missing since the end of August after breaking his leg against Birmingham, with results having tailed off since he’s been out of the team.
Defoe has missed the last three games after being sent off against Portsmouth, whilst Lennon missed the defeat to Arsenal after picking up an ankle injury against Stoke.
And Redknapp has felt the absence of those three, with Spurs not holding the same attacking threat they did at the start of the season.
“They are three of my best players. Modric is a world-class player in my opinion. Lennon is a threat when he has the ball and goes at people.
“Defoe has been in incredible form this year. Suddenly we miss him for three games. It’s cost us dearly when he got sent off at Portsmouth.”
