Tottenham have, in its simplest terms, imploded. They blew a winning position at the Emirates to go down 5-2, lost 3-1 on home turf to Man United and also failed to take a point from Everton, going down 1-0. Some are already claiming spurs wont even get champions league football next year but, there is hope.
Tottenham have, in it’s simplest terms
Although Spurs have lost their last 3 in the league, they haven’t played too badly in any game. Against Arsenal, they were 2-0 up and arguably the better team for most of the first half. Against united they had double the amount of shots, more possession and domination of the match but lost to some clinical and quality finishes. Also, Vs Everton, they had 17 shots to Everton’s six, hit the bar and scored an offside goal.
The fact is, those writing off spurs are as bad as those that wrote off Arsenal earlier in the year and said Swansea have no chance of staying up.
Nobody ever knows what’s around the corner in football and Tottenham are no different. On Saturday, they entertain Bolton Wanderers at home with the chance of getting to the FA cup semifinals and are favourites to win it. As well as this, Tottenham’s only genuine hard league game left I’d Chelsea away whereas their rivals have a much harder run in.
Don’t write off spurs just yet, they are still strong in 3rd spot and have a real shot at the FA cup. Come on you spurs.
