There were so many poor performances by the whole team last night, where do I start?
I hope all those Spurs fans who were calling for both Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier to be dropped for Rose and Aurier, are happy now.
From Rose’s almost a dozen pathetic crosses, only one found a Spurs player, most of his crosses never got past the first defender, or were played behind Spurs players, or were misplaced, absolute garbage. Aurier didn’t fair much better with his hand full of useless crosses and misunderstanding with players.
Sissoko had his usual crap game, missing an absolute sitter in the first half, he can’t cope with one-on-ones at all, he bottles it every time.
Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, both missed good chances, and went missing again, for most of the game. At least Erik Lamela contributed an assist with Harry Kane’s goal, and he was only on for the last 15 minutes or so.
Eric Dier lived up to his name again, and the rest of the team were average at best.
Fernando Llorente, had the best chance to score in the whole game, from INSIDE the six-yard box, but somehow managed to miss his volley!
Danny Rose had a penalty appeal turned down, but Spurs themselves are to blame for this loss, just not accurate enough with their final pass, and not clinical enough in front of goal.
Harry Kane did score a great goal, after finally receiving a decent through-ball from Erik Lamela, but apart from that, he had to either drop deep or wide, to pick up the ball, Spurs are not playing quick enough and to his strengths.
