Steven Gerrard discusses poorest Tottenham side he remembers... five still at Spurs

Andre Villas Boas 2

The former Liverpool captain remembers watching a poor Tottenham Hotspur side being thrashed 5-0 at White Hart Lane.

In his autobiography 'My Story,' Steven Gerrard has reflected on the 'poorest Tottenham side he can remember.'

Unsurprisingly, it was the Andre Villas-Boas-led team that was beaten 5-0 by Liverpool, with their Portuguese coach duly being sacked the next day.

Gerrard was out injured that game and remembers watching his Liverpool team-mates fondly as they tore AVB's men apart at White Hart Lane.

On Page 119 of his autobiography, the Reds icon wrote: "I watched a majestic performance form Liverpool that winter afternoon. Spurs were totally outplayed.

"Their manager was sacked after a 5-0 humiliation - and it was the poorest Tottenham team I could remember."

Intriguingly, five of the Spurs stars involved in that embarrassing 5-0 defeat still turn out for Tottenham.

Hugo Lloris is still the north London side's no.1 - although he was always one of the club's best players, even during the bad times. Kyle Walker is still around, though, and so too Mousa Dembele. Nacer Chadli was the fourth, while Andros Townsend came on as a substitute.

Townsend is perhaps caught in the middle, as his future at White Hart Lane looks uncertain due to an increasingly limited amount of game time.

Of the poorest Tottenham side Liverpool legend Gerrard can remember, Kyle Naughton, Michael Dawson, Aaron Lennon, Sandro, Lewis Holtby, Roberto Soldado, Paulinho and Zeki Fryers have all been sold. But three of them were only offloaded this summer...
