Tottenham boss runs the rule on weekend performance
As new Tottenham manager Nuno Espírito Santo prepares to clash with former charge Wolves in the third round of the Carabao Cup tomorrow, the Spurs boss spoke in his pre-match presser about the positive nature and will of the team to work in the wake of criticism for their 3-0 loss to rivals Chelsea at the weekend;
Tottenham went into halftime at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium level at 0-0 with Thomas Tuchel’s Blues outfit, but come full-time, the Whites had succumbed to a 3-0 loss on home soil and their second consecutive loss by the same scoreline while slipping to seventh in the table.
Espírito Santo remains positive about trajectory amidst criticism of tactical approach
There were concerns about the suitability of Nuno for the attacking football Tottenham were aiming for, something which is borne out of one damning piece of statistical data in particular.
And with just three goals to their name in the opening five Premier League fixtures of the current campaign, it is understandable why there are mounting questions about whether or not NES is the right man for the job. But the Portuguese remains positive that the players continue to work towards the end-goal that will see the level of performance improve;
It is imperative that Tottenham work towards arresting their goalscoring slide in rapid order when they clash with Wolves at the Molineux, with Spurs set to lock horns with another domestic rival in Arsenal in the North London Derby at the weekend before Aston Villa arrives just over the horizon after a midweek Europa Conference League clash with Slovenian outfit NŠ Mura.
