Tottenham Hotspur dropped more points in the Premier League today.
It’s one step forward and two back for Tottenham Hotspur right now.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side thumped Red Star 4-0 in the Champions League in midweek but followed that up by dropping more points in the Premier League.
Tottenham were held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield United in North London this afternoon, meaning that Spurs have now won one of their last six league games – three defeats, two draws.
Son Heung-min fired Pochettino’s troops into a 1-0 lead but a deflected goal from George Baldock saved the Saints, who had earlier had an equaliser controversially disallowed for offside.
The Lilywhites, who sit 12th in the Premier League table after 12 games, look a shadow of the side that reached the Champions League final last season.
And the club’s former chairman Lord Sugar is perplexed by the slide, asserting that ‘Spurs have gone’.
Here’s how he reacted to the result on Twitter:
Pains me to say this but Spurs have gone. What has, happened to the fighting spirit of last season @SpursOfficial— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) November 9, 2019
Tottenham could be 12 points adrift in the race for a top-four finish by tomorrow evening and no doubt there’ll be more questions about Pochettino’s future.
The Argentine has undoubtedly taken the club to a new level, even if he hasn’t won a trophy since joining Spurs in 2014, but the question is has he taken them as far as he can?
