Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Stoke loss: 'At least Naughton will miss the next game!'

Tottenham WHL

The White Hart Lane faithful were struggling to find any positives of note after a 2-1 home loss to Stoke...

After 11 Premier League games, Tottenham Hotspur after 12th in the table - with just 14 points to their name, having won only four and lost five of their opening league fixtures.

The north London side are now 15 points off league-leaders Chelsea and have conceded 16 times already this term.

It is hardly the start boss Mauricio Pochettino would have dreamed off.

And, speaking of bad starts, it was an early goal that set the tone for Spurs on Sunday afternoon, as Bojan Krkic - relatively unchallenged - put Stoke City ahead at White Hart Lane with a fantastic individual effort just several minutes into the encounter.

Jonathan Walters then doubled the Potters' lead and, despite Nacer Chadli's second-half strike, Pochettino's men could not force their way back onto level terms.

They weren't helped late on by Kyle Naughton's sending off for a foul on Victor Moses.

Naughton, however, was actually considered to have played better than most of his team-mates before the sending off - while many suggest his red card could have earned his side a draw as he stopped Moses from rushing through on goal.

Some fans, though, weren't kind about the right-back on Twitter after the game - and have suggested that his consequent suspension is the only positive Tottenham can take from their defeat to Stoke...
