With Arsenal losing and Liverpool drawing with leaders Chelsea, a win would have put Tottenham back in with a chance of challenging for the title — and, at least, it would have certainly solidified their top four credentials.

Instead, Spurs played out a drab goalless draw with strugglers Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Chances were few and far between for either side. Despite having the majority of the possession, Maurcio Pochettino’s side just couldn’t find a way through.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.



  1. our manager said on Sky today the squad didn’t need strengthening!

    Is he stupid or what????

    Nothin up front against the team bottom of table, we don’t deserve to be 2nd—and wont be at the end of the season!!

  2. Spurs are not ready to win the league Eriksen his useless he can’t score from free kicks can’t take corners plays every game ant there’s no one to choose from let’s forget about it we’re no where near pochitino have to remember that he will never be seen as a good manager until he wins something big

  3. keep calm. This was a dirty Tuesday night in the North East. Facing a team
    that’s fighting for its PL existence, and which had the injection of a few player additions before
    deadline day, and a brilliant Kone back from the African Cup.
    Of course they were going to defend for their lives against a team in the top four. So we’ve dropped
    points but a draw, even with wasted opportunities, still means we’ve lost fewer games
    than any other PL side. A good result against Middlesboro on Saturday, and all will be forgotten.
    Tonight might even prove a valuable point at the end of the season. I do wish we had
    someone, though, who can score consistently out of nothing when Kane an Ali are shackled.
    I want to believe in Son (Janssen will find his game soon) and he does score some good vital
    goals, but he frustrates me with his inconsistency and general lack of a football brain. And Eriksen has
    got to start scoring from free kicks again. Last season when he shaped up for a free kick outside the area my heart raced, while this season it sinks. Imagine where we’d be this season if we’d had even a few of those (previously successful) Eriksen free kicks go in.
