Tottenham’s terrible run of form as seen a lot of criticism directed at the players, Mauricio Pochettino as well as the Tottenham board.
There have been reports of unrest within the Spurs squad and with many players nearing the end of their contracts, there have been questions levelled at the players’ attitudes and effort (Sky Sports).
Former Manchester City full-back Micah Richards feels that the problem for Pochettino’s men is much more fundamental. The ex-England defender claimed that Tottenham’s squad is unbalanced and that they have too many similar players in the attacking department.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live Sport, he said the lack of consistency in the line ups and tactical setups is the primary reason the Lilywhites are struggling.

I believe Tottenham have a mix of different styles of attacking players and so disagree with Richards’ assessment of there being too many similar players at the club. However, I think he is right in his assertion that perhaps some of the players don’t know their jobs owing to the constant switching in tactics.
