While Tottenham Hotspur were simply woeful in the second half against Bayern, I believe that a select few actually played the game well and were let down by awful teammates and a poor formation.
Let’s take a look at the three players who should escape harsh criticism from the 7-2 battering.
Absolutely bossed the game for the first 20 minutes or so and looked to be pulling the strings of a famous home win for Spurs. Unfortunately, the formation gave the youngster too much to do and he quickly became overrun and fatigued. I still see so much promise in this lad though!
Again, Ndombele looked different class at the start of the first-half. No matter what happens this season, this guy has a huge future at Tottenham. The way he carries the ball, holds off players, creates chances, and follows the ball to arrive late for shots of his own is different class. Simply ran out of energy after having to cover stupid amounts of ground.
How this guy doesn’t run out of energy I will never know. Scored Tottenham’s opener and did not stop closing people down, pressing high, and tracking back all night. If everyone put in the effort he did, Spurs would be an infinitely better team. What a shame that he couldn’t get the service in the second half and his defensive teammates let him down.
