Spurs manager Harry Redknapp put it down to ‘one of those days’ as the side failed to capitalise on the chances they created against West Ham on Saturday. Tottenham had 26 shots on goal, but Rob Green and the woodwork helped to keep them out.
Speaking on the club website Harry said: “I thought we were excellent, I was really pleased with how we played.
“We passed the ball well and created loads of chances but just couldn’t get that break in front of goal.
“They defended well. They weren’t coming here to lay down, they worked their socks off, rode their luck at times and credit to them, they hung in there. But you need a bit of luck in front of goal as well.
“We created so many chances, hit the woodwork a few times – it was one of those matches.”
The draw leaves Spurs in fifth, four points clear of Liverpool who have played one game more. Although Chelsea pulled away from Spurs with their win over Man City, we did at least gain a point on Mancini’s men and we have a game in hand on them. As we still have to play City at Eastlands, fourth place is still in our hands.
