Spurs suffered another Premier League defeat as West Ham breezed past Nuno Espirito Santo’s side. And a stat from the game really highlighted how poor Tottenham were on the day.
As per OptaJoe on Twitter, the north London side didn’t attempt a single shot during the second half. Making it the third time Spurs have failed to record a shot in the second half of a Premier League match since the start of last season.
Moreover, Tottenham have achieved this unwanted stat more than any other side in the Premier League. Given their attacking quality with Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, it is a damning revelation for Spurs.
Indeed, West Ham were simply too much for Spurs on the day. With Tottenham somehow looking uninterested despite none of the players featuring midweek in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
The loss to West Ham made it four London derby defeats this season for Spurs in the Premier League. The result also put Tottenham in a precarious position in the standings.
With Manchester United coming up next for Nuno’s men, there’s a real chance that unfavourable results could see Spurs slide down the table following this result against West Ham.
Spurs fans are livid over West Ham stat
As you would expect, Tottenham fans on social media were livid with this stat following Sunday’s match against the Hammers.
Here’s what some Spurs fans had to say about Nuno’s side having zero shots at all in the second-half against West Ham on Twitter…
Nuno will be out soon, I'm sure of it. https://t.co/jzFN2owrRQ— Raz (@Raaahaha) October 24, 2021
Not even a shot. End this madness https://t.co/6u7sPGmDnd— Alphonso 🇯🇲 (@JuanAlphonso) October 24, 2021
The attitude and mentality of our players is absolutely appalling every London derby we have played this season we have bent over for the opposition. But then again when you have uninterested owners we shouldn't really be surprised. https://t.co/lJDW0PdqrL— Jordan (@COYSJordan94) October 24, 2021
