Glenn Hoddle has claimed that he has ‘never seen’ a Tottenham side with no movement when the likes of Eric Dier and Cristian Romero were on the ball on Sunday, as he told Premier League Productions (19/09/21 at 6:55 pm).

Tottenham suffered a morale-sapping 3-0 defeat to Chelsea, in front of their own supporters, with a second-half capitulation condemning them to back-to-back defeats against London clubs.

Well, another London side awaits Spurs this Sunday, and Nuno Espirito Santo doesn’t want to lose that one, that’s for sure.

And if they produce the same performance, like they did against Chelsea, then even Arsenal, who have had their own troubles, will beat them.

Hoddle shared what he noticed about the Spurs players without the ball and how he felt ‘sorry’ for the players with the ball.

“I have never seen a Spurs side, off the ball, have no movement,” said Hoddle. “They were like manikins. There was no movement, at all.

“The back players, Dier and Romero had nowhere to go. They had nowhere to pass. Every white shirt was standing still, for long periods.

“In the end, I felt sorry for who was in possession of the ball. We have all been in teams like that, where it happens like that and they are going through a lack of confidence.”

Spurs just need to get back to winning ways, for the confidence of the players and for the heat to be taken off Nuno.

And it’s quite ironic that he is travelling back to his former club on Wednesday night, in order to find some light.

It’s a League Cup clash against Wolves, who are struggling with the man that replaced Nuno – Bruno Lange – and it will be interesting to see what type of team both managers put out.

From Tottenham’s perspective, someone like Harry Kane needs goals, so he needs to start, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if the XI that plays at Molineux, keeps their place in the XI for Arsenal if they record a win.
