Tottenham's miserable week was compounded by a 1-0 defeat to North London rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane today.
An early goal from Gunners midfielder Tomas Rosicky was enough to hand Arsene Wenger's side the win, renewing their title hopes and almost certainly preventing Spurs from breaking into the top four this season - despite spending over £100m on new additions last summer.
The 1-0 loss came quickly after a 3-1 defeat to Benfica in the Europa League and last weekend's 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea, and with three losses in a week, the pressure is really beginning to pile up on manager Tim Sherwood, who replaced Andre Villas-Boas in December.
The defeat means that Arsenal have now beaten their local rivals three times this season, with two Premier League wins and one FA Cup success over their neighbours, and it was evident on Twitter after the game that fans had become frustrated with losing to their biggest rivals on a regular basis.
Criticism once again poured in for Sherwood, chairman Daniel Levy and a handful of underperforming players as many supporters are already looking forward to the summer, where Sherwood looks set to be replaced by a more experienced manager.
Forget the result, #THFC weren't going to finish in the top four anyway. It's just refreshing to see a good performance. Huge improvement.— Joe Fish (@Joe_Fish_) March 16, 2014
Townsend, Paulinho, chadli, Dawson, Naughton, Capoue and Vertonghen all need to be gone. Not good enough and don't even try #thfc— SidewaysSpurs (@SidewaysSpurs) March 16, 2014
Thought we probably did enough to get a point but like always, we spent too much time on the ball, without creating many chances. #THFC— Ollie Davis (@Ollie_Davis) March 16, 2014
Thought Ade worked his socks off,credit to Naughton for his deliveries.We were unlucky & on another day we could have taken 3 points! #thfc— Yonni Tahor (@Yonni_Tahor) March 16, 2014
At least we showed a bit of fight! Didn't deserve to lose #THFC— Lew (@LewisSpurs90) March 16, 2014
If there is one good thing about this awful past week for #thfc, we will be getting a new manager this summer.— Ryan Jacobson (@RyanJacobson1) March 16, 2014
