Sunday’s 0-0 draw against Everton means that Spurs have now conceded just five times in the league all season – a record that would look even better without that aberration against West Ham. However, that run was lost on most of the social media commentators as the club drew a blank at the top end of the pitch.
In ten Premier League matches, we have scored nine times but that statistic isn’t concerning Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas who is happy with the number of chances his team are creating.
“The team is creating more chances and more shots. I carry on about all the good statistics and others about all the negative, and there will be debate,” AVB said.
“I don’t think it is dramatic. We are on 30 goals in 17 games and it is the second-highest ever at the club, so I don’t worry about that.”
The manager went on to defend his squad and pointed to our best start in the top flight for many years.
“We are the team that creates more opportunities in the Premier League, we have more shots. Hull are sitting tenth and we are fourth,” he added.
“The chances are coming and sometimes they go your way and the opponent is not there to stop it. At the moment it is results that have put us in fourth and one of the spots in the Champions League. You can have more goals, less goals. We all want excitement, but right now the team is doing extremely well.”
Are you concerned at the lack of goals in the Premier League this season or do you think it’s only a matter of time before they come?
