There’s a lot of positive statistics floating about that reflect how well Spurs have been playing this season, but here’s one that doesn’t make for great reading.
Tottenham have lost eight points this season when conceding late goals, from 65 minutes onwards. Only Aston Villa and today’s opponents Watford have surrendered more points in this manner.
With none of Spurs’ title rivals featuring in this list, it could be a factor that decides whether we can last the pace.
So what’s causing this problem? Is it fatigue, as the side’s high-energy style fades towards the end of games, or is it a lack of concentration from a very young team? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
