Spurs lost their first league match in thirteen yesterday as late defensive mistakes let Liverpool come from behind to snatch a 3-2 win. Spurs led after the break through Jan Vertonghen’s second of the game but after chances to claim a third and end the contest, we let the points slip.
After the match, head coach Andre Villas-Boas admitted that the loss was a little hard to take.
“It’s difficult for us to take because we did ever so well to come back into the game in the first half and started so brightly in the second half,” AVB said.
“We were in control of the game and then it changed very quickly.
“We lost control of the momentum of the game and let Liverpool believe they could turn it around.”
Andre felt that it was a good performance overall with the exception of the two late errors.
“The performance overall was good, but we’d want to avoid a couple of things that we did wrong,” he added.
“Still, it was a good performance and the feeling is a little harsh because the players understand that we could have won here.”
Spurs stay in third despite the defeat and next up in the Premiership is Sunday’s home tie with Fulham, following Thursday’s trip to Milan in the Europa League.
