When Spurs went 2-0 down in the first half of yesterday’s match with Southampton there were predictable cries for the coach to be sacked before the end of the season but Tim Sherwood lives to fight on. The comeback was inspired by Christian Eriksen and completed by Gylfi Sigurdsson and it leaves us with a little momentum ahead of a difficult trip to Anfield.
“I was gutted after 28 minutes and we conceded two poor goals, we know that,” said Sherwood on the club’s official website.
“We needed to dig deep and try to find a way to win the game and I’m so proud of the lads that we managed to achieve that.
“We knew it was going to be tough and to trail 2-0 at home and come back to win 3-2 is a massive achievement.”
The three points keeps us in with a faint chance of the top four but in reality, it just keeps us ahead of Everton and Manchester United in the race for fifth.
“It was a big win for us. We can now concentrate week to week on the Premier League and we’ll try to accumulate as many points as we can,” Tim added.
Next up is Liverpool on Sunday but after that, it is a relatively winnable run in to the end of the campaign. What can we hope to achieve?
