We’ve outplayed every team this season, says Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason

Tottenham WHL

Spurs are still to secure their first win after four Premier League games.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason has spoken of his confidence that results will pick up for Spurs after their underwhelming start.

"The way we are playing, we know the results will come. We've outplayed every team we've come up against this season," said Mason, in quotes published on the club’s official website.

“We want to get that winning feeling back as soon as possible and Sunderland away, next time out, is a big game for us."

It’s a bold claim from the England international but one which is difficult to argue with - except for their clash with Manchester United.

While Spurs were in control of possession for large swathes of their opening day fixture at Old Trafford, they rarely troubled the erratic Sergio Romero and were guilty of a lack of ideas in forward areas.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men did impress for 70 minutes against Stoke City in their next fixture, however, and should have taken all three points, but suffered a complete collapse following Harry Kane’s departure and were lucky to take a point in the end.

Last week saw Spurs travel to a flying Leicester City side where they duly put the breaks on the Foxes, before again sacrificing a lead late on.

Saturday’s game was the best of the bunch and Spurs looked in fine shape, dominating a very good Everton side across the pitch and limiting their considerable threat to just one Arouna Kone header.

The positive signs are clear to see at White Hart Lane and with Mason’s confident tone presumably a reflection of the dressing room mood - and new signings Clinton N’Jie and Heung-Min Son still to be introduced – the smart money is a on Spurs win come September 12th.
