Some Tottenham fans on social media have been left divided over who deserves the blame for the club’s poor performance and defeat at Bramall Lane.

Despite dominating proceedings for large parts of the first half and looking dangerous on occasion, the away side never fashioned clear cut opportunities, with their decision making in the final third often letting them down.

It was not only offensive problems that plagued Mourinho’s men, with the likes of Eric Dier, Ben Davies, and Davinson Sanchez also guilty of lapses in concentration at the back, leading to the home side scoring almost every time they came into the Spurs box.

After the result, some Spurs fans insisted that they had already had enough of Jose Mourinho on the back of his failure to get the side playing attacking football.

Others, however, insisted that it was unfair to blame the Spurs boss and pointed the finger at the players’ poor mentality.

Spurs Web Opinion

I personally would have liked to see one of either Dele Alli or Erik Lamela start in order to get into those pockets and link our midfield with our attack. However, too many of our players simply had an off day at the same time. The nature of the goals we conceded also did not bode well for the Dier-Sanchez partnership, which had looked so good in the first two games.
