It has been a whirlwind of emotions for Spurs fans in the recent weeks, one game we beat Dortmund in the Champions League, the next we lose to Burnley. Our defeat to Chelsea and our pathetic performance against Arsenal was masked by another win against Dortmund last week as we advanced into the quarter finals of the Champions League.
However, we are now back to misery after we were stunned by the Saints on Saturday, our hopes of a place in the top four this season are slowly slipping out of our hands.
After such a professional performance against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, it was so important for us to show the same character on the weekend and pick up our first win in three league games, yet our display at the St.Mary’s Stadium was nothing short of a disgrace in the second half.
The Saints were outplayed in the first half, the game could have been sealed in the first 45 minutes given the number of chances we had, however, we were not clinical enough and once again it came back to haunt us. After the slightest amount of pressure shown by Southampton, our defence became both vulnerable and woeful.
We are now just three points ahead of Manchester United in fifth, who could go level on points with us if they beat Watford in their next fixture. As for Spurs, claiming three points at Anfield will be a tough ask given our recent league form, and Liverpool will be desperate for a win as they fight for the title.
We have suffered nine defeats in the league this season, three of which have come from us being 1-0 up against Watford, Wolves and Southampton in 70 minutes, that is not good enough for a team who wants to fight for the Champions League, let alone the title.
