The win over Manchester City on Sunday, as well as the 3-2 win over Southampton in the FA Cup on Wednesday, were both extremely important results for Tottenham.
However, it can be argued that the Lilywhites were fortunate to win both matches as City and the Saints had huge periods of control in their respective games.
On the back of Tottenham’s late turn around over Southampton, former Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam and former Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott talked about the Lilywhites new counter-attacking style under Jose Mourinho.
