Ian Wright on his frustration watching Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham WHL

Arsenal legend says he cannot understand the inconsistency of the Spurs side.

Tottenham Hotspur put an end to their poor run of form with a come-from-behind victory to win 2-1 at Hull City.

Their second half performance was far improved on the first, with manager Mauricio Pochettino crediting a more aggressive approach as reason for the turnaround. 

Speaking on BBC 5 Live 606, former Arsenal star Ian Wright bemoaned the club's inability to produce the sort of display they did in the second 45 minutes, on a consistent basis - likely echoing the thoughts of many fans.

He said: "Eriksen, he got his goal, Lamela, they've bought him for that kind of role to add the quality but it seems like there's not too much pattern.

"There's a player up front in Soldado whose confidence is not there, he doesn't look like he's going to score.

"I dont know what it is, why Tottenham don't impose themselves on the game from the start. I don't know why they don't do that."

Expressing disappointment in the inconsistency is one way to look at it; the other is to welcome that for 45 minutes, Spurs got their approach spot on.

They showed a strong mentality, which they have been accused of lacking in previous weeks, and Pochettino made effective substitutions.

The acid test will come if they are 1-0 down to Everton at White Hart Lane at the weekend, but having done so against Hull, they will have added confidence they can replicate the comeback, and begin showing the consistency Wright refers to them lacking.
