This might have been a good week to play Stevenage in the cup but as it is, Spurs have to try and bounce back from Sunday’s defeat with a positive result against Manchester United on Sunday. Several players are voicing the need to stay ‘focused’ and avoid the flat feeling that is accompanying some of the fans at the moment.
Emmanuel Adebayor put Spurs 2-0 up on Sunday and he highlighted the need for positivity ahead of this weekend’s game.
“After losing 5-2 to Arsenal we can’t ask for a bigger challenge than playing Manchester United, but we are looking forward to it. It will be a tough game but I think we are ready for it,” Ade said.
“We just have to show personality and character and bounce back as quickly as possible.”
The Togolese striker also felt that Spurs should have won the game after his penalty doubled our early lead.
“After my penalty I thought the game was over,” he added “but they showed good character. “Unfortunately we didn’t manage to beat them but the season is long, we just have to keep focused and keep going.”
An international break tonight means there is no welcome diversion but the collective hope is for some better news on Sunday.
