Tottenham Hotspur are just three games into the new season but they have already recorded their first loss. Surprisingly, this did not come away to Man City last week, but at home to Newcastle today.
Let’s take a look at the five Tottenham stars who let the team down against the Magpies.
Let his man go just before Newcastle’s goal and was lucky to get away with it as his fellow defenders covered. However, when he made the same mistake minutes later, Danny Rose was unable to get across and block the shot. There are still so many defensive errors in Sanchez’s game and he is a million miles away from being an Alderweireld replacement.
Just does not look at home as a Premier League starter. Gave the ball away and ended up in a heap on multiple occasions. He also looks panicked when he does make it into the final third and I can’t remember him delivering a good cross all day. A second choice squad player for me.
I don’t know where the zip and drive from Winks’ game has gone but I did not see it today. Telegraphed passes and gave the ball away time and time again. Has all the talent in the word, but he needs to improve from his early-season form.
Looked lost out there. Picked up a silly yellow. Was give a chance as chief playmaker, but failed miserably. Not a started for Spurs in my opinion, and gulf between Lamela and Eriksen is clear.
Heung Min Son
First match back and Son did not look match sharp. Never really got into the game and didn’t do much with the ball at his feet. Looked like a man who had not played footall in a good while.
