It’s been an overwhelmingly disappointing couple of weeks at Spurs and while the players’ comments after the game at Goodison were positive, it’s hard not to feel flat as our gap between the fourth placed side could be reduced to just one point tonight.
After the game, manager Harry Redknapp was genuinely mystified by the reverse.
“How did we lose that game?” said Harry after the match. “In the second half they didn’t come out of their half. It was completely one-way traffic.
“There wasn’t much in it in the first half. They created one or two chances, we created one or two chances and we conceded a goal. It wasn’t as if our keeper had a lot to do.
“In the second half we picked up the pace, got after them and penned them in. We made chances, missed chances, battered them. We just couldn’t get the goal.”
But lose it we did and the gap is closing. However, after a run of tricky games there are only ten fixtures to go and Chelsea aside, they are all winnable. Starting with Stoke at home on Wednesday week, it’s time for this squad to get back to three points.
