Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend has said that he and his teammates are not entirely happy with the performance against Chelsea on New Year’s Day.
Spurs won the Premier League clash at White Hart Lane in sensational fashion, but they conceded three goals.
The 5-3 scoreline was enough for Tottenham to pick up the three points, but Townsend, who found the target from the penalty spot, was not entirely happy.
“When we came in at half-time the main thing was just to focus – the first 10 to 15 minutes after the break we needed to stay compact and to go on and score a fourth was beyond our wildest dreams,” the 23-year-old told Tottenham’s official website.
“We’re not happy with conceding three goals but at the end of the day this is a Chelsea team that was tipped to be the invincibles and we’ve got three points against them.”
Townsend does have a point. Conceding three goals especially at home is hardly something to be proud of.
However, one needs to remember that two of those goals were conceded after Tottenham had virtually sewn up the points.
The performance against Chelsea was one of Tottenham’s best so far this season, but the fact that Townsend is still able to pick faults in it suggests that the players are not getting carried away.
