Tottenham's Andros Townsend disappointed once again on Saturday

White Hart Lane 4

Tottenham Hotspur may have won 4-3 against Leicester City on Saturday but Andros Townsend did little to impress.

Tottenham Hotspur needed to respond after their 3-0 defeat to Manchester United last weekend, but few expected what happened at White Hart Lane a week on.

Harry Kane’s hat-trick, an own-goal from Jeffrey Schlupp and strikes from Jamie Vardy, Wes Morgan and David Nugent saw the match between Tottenham and Leicester City finish 4-3 to the hosts.

But while the England under-21 international stole the headlines and saved the day, the spotlight continues to shine bright on some of his teammates.

One of those players is winger Andros Townsend, who again looked far from his best a week after suffering the embarrassment of being substituted after just 31 minutes against United.

This time the Tottenham winger got a little longer, ultimately replaced two minutes short of the hour-mark by Paulinho, who went on to impress.

But the same cannot be said of Townsend, who offered little and continues to frustrate more than excite.

On Saturday, the 23-year-old failed to score, assist, shoot or play a single key pass while he lost possession on 12 occasions.

That is not to say he did nothing, with four successful duels and two interceptions to his name. But that is not enough and Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will surely be demanding more if Townsend is to remain in his plans for the long term.

That is a debate for another day, but for all Kane's heroics there are some Tottenham players who need to follow his example.
