Tottenham Hotspur’s woeful start to the new season continued on Saturday as they failed to beat Premier League newcomers Sheffield United.
In previous seasons under Mauricio Pochettino, facing a ‘lesser’ side on our own patch in North London would typically see Spurs running out as winners; but not this campaign.
Spurs have looked lost in the attacking third in home matches against Newcastle United, Watford, Southampton and Saturday’s opponents.
90min report that Celta Vigo winger Brais Mendez is being considered as a potential replacement for Christian Eriksen.
Tottenham look set to lose Eriksen at the end of the season on a free transfer when his contract expires.
Mendes, 22, has featured thirteen times in La Liga this season but has not scored a single goal or even provided an assist (transfermarkt).
Spurs have struggled to provide natural width in their team which is causing the side to try and play too narrow and through the middle which is hampering Harry Kane.
The forward barely had a kick in the first half against Sheffield United, we need to play with width to try and stretch the opponent allowing Kane more space up top.
