Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
Tottenham Hotspur currently sits atop Group J and while Spurs can’t technically clinch the group with a win, they would control their own destiny. The biggest threat to success is the fact that Spurs have a noon kickoff in London against Chelsea on Sunday. What does Pochettino do?
Spurs beat Qarabag last time at White Hart Lane, but they had to come from behind to do it. Heung-Min Son scored twice and Erik Lamela scored a late one to give Spurs a 3-1 win.
Yep, Baku is far away. It’s 2,878 miles to be exact. Not an easy travel day (or...
A fine 4-1 London derby win sees this Spurs side remain in fifth position in the Barclay's Premier League, however they are now only two points behind Man City in third, and four points behind table-topping Leicester City.
Following an uneventful first 10 minutes, Pochettino's men sprung into action with a Harry Kane opener on 23 minutes. This was followed by an Alderweireld header and a second-half strike from that man Kane again.
Kyle Walker completed the Tottenham rout on 83 minutes, only for a Lanzini strike, four minutes later, to spoil the party.
This is going to be a short review because I want you all to just enjoy what we saw today. Other than a mistake by Walker, who other than that was superb, we today played a team that has beaten Chelsea and Arsenal and we destroyed them. This is not over excitement, we destroyed them in every position.
Alli showed maturity yet again, I thought Dembele was magnificent, Son came in and it was like he had been in the squad for years, and Eriksen was sublime.
Mason could and should have made it 5 and 6.
Kane was immense. Danny Rose is just getting better and better and...
Okay, so that's not quite what Moussa Dembele said, but what he did say is that this current Spurs team is the best he has played in. Now bearing in mind that he has been part of Spurs squads that have contained Bale that is one heck of a statement. In fact, when I read that this morning, my first impression was, " what drugs has Moussa been taking recently? "
But then I stopped and paused for thought. I re watched his interview, which by the way is currently available
On demand on Sky Sports, and started to realise that he may have a point. A very good point....
Right, now I have your attention!! But actually Spurs could win the league. Maybe not this season but let me explain why it could be more of a reality than you may think.
Firstly, Spurs have only lost once since the opening day in the league.
Second, we have one of the meanest defences in the league. Toby and Verts are a force to be reckoned with for Belgium and now for Spurs.
Third. Dier moving to midfield is a stroke of genius from Pochettino.
Fourth. Levy seems to be letting the manager get on with the job. At long last.
Fifth. We have Harry Kane.
Sixth. Hansen said...
