Tottenham Hotspur’s defeat to League Two side Colchester United in the League Cup this week may have comes as a shock to some, but the stats have been pointing towards it for a long time.
It may seem as if Spurs have had a rough start to the new season, winning just two games out of eight in all competitions so far, but the problems run far deeper.
Tottenham have actually endured an awful 2019 in general, with the Lilywhites unable to pick up consistent results away from home since the turn of the new year.
The club’s run in the Champions League last season perhaps masked some of these flaws, but they are now there for all to see.
The Daily Mail have released some rather alarming stats for Tottenham fans to read this week:
Tottenham have lost more away games in 2019 than any other Premier League club, with 10 defeats out of 19 games in that time. They have only won five of those.
Putting this into a Premier League table for home and away games, Tottenham are placed all the way down in 9th, 30 points behind Manchester City at the top of the table.
Are you worried, Spurs fans?
Spurs Web Opinion:
Tottenham need to turn around their away form quickly, whilst also turning the new White Hart Lane into the fortress the old stadium was in its final year of use. The performances are there to a point most weeks, but Spurs are having trouble killing off games and finding that final ball through.
