Some Tottenham fans on social media are reasonably pleased with the way Spurs approached the FA Cup fifth round tie against Everton yesterday, despite falling to a 5-4 loss.

The away side started the game on the front foot and were not shy of committing bodies in attack right from kick-off.

Tottenham went in-front early on and spurned several chances to extend their lead.

While Mourinho’s men produced some neat interplay in attacking areas, all of their hard work was undone time and again by individual errors at the back.

Davinson Sanchez was at fault for a couple of the home side’s goals after he failed to track players’ runs, while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg also did not cover himself in glory, giving the ball way for Everton’s opener and later handing the home side a penalty.

Some Spurs fans on social media were extremely critical of the North Londoners’ defensive display and suggested that the team’s frailties at the back justified Mourinho’s hesitance in adopting an open and expansive approach.

Spurs Web Opinion

Everton’s first, fourth and fifth goal were certainly avoidable and came down to lapses in concentration at the back. However, I believe that the penalty award was extremely harsh and we should have scored more given the chances we created.
