Tottenham Hotspur recorded their first dropped points at Wembley in over six games yesterday as they took on Wolves in the Premier league.

Spurs sat second in the league at the time of playing, and had the opportunity to close the gap between themselves and Liverpool down to three points, as well as pushing four ahead of City.

However, despite taking the lead in the first half, Tottenham conceded three goals in fifteen minutes to see their chances of three points vanish.

Spurs must not start again as they face a trip to Cardiff on New Years Day, where they will hopefully be able to make some ground back as Liverpool and Man City face off.

Tottenham have played a lot of high tempo games in a short space of time this Christmas, with the added pressure of mounting injuries.

It appeared that fatigue may have finally got the better of them, especially in the middle of the park.

Poch said (Football London): “Maybe, maybe yes. We conceded the first goal and in the last 20 minutes it was tough for the team to find energy to be competitive or to try to win the game.

“Of course we started to feel it a few minutes before we conceded which is why we were ready to add a fresh player like Oliver Skipp to help the team and we couldn’t because we conceded in the action before we were going to make the change.

“Yes I think the game was under control in the first half, maybe it was easier than we expected in the first half to dominate the game and to play so easily. They played so deep, chasing us and we didn’t concede one chance.

“But in the second half maybe we started to feel that the game was over and when you start to feel the game is over and you play in the way that you play, you start to decide in a wrong way.

“Very disappointed like the players but nothing to say. Some games can happen with this type of result and we need to move on and be sure that we are ready for the next game.”
