The former Newcastle striker was not impressed with the role of midfielder Alli and defender Sanchez during West Bromwich Albion’s goal against Spurs at the Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday afternoon.
The Baggies took the lead through Salomon Rondon as early as the fourth minute, and Spurs had to wait until the 74th minute to get the equaliser through Harry Kane.
Shearer said on Match of the Day on BBC One on Saturday night (11:13pm, November 25, 2017): “When they conceded the goal, Dele Alli is sloppy, wants too much time on the ball. Livermore wins it, plays a good ball in to Rondon, who is strong, who is quick.
“But I still think Sanchez can do a lot better there, you can see he is angry with himself and he actually miskicks it.”
Tottenham’s overall performance against West Brom was very disappointing, and the fans must be frustrated.
The Baggies were very defensive, but Spurs should have prepared for that and should have been more clinical in front of goal.
Failure to win against West Brom means that Tottenham's chances of winning the Premier League title this season are gone.
Manchester City won against Huddersfield Town, as Pep Guardiola’s side continue to march towards the title.
