After another frustrating performance at the weekend against West Ham United, it’s safe to say Tottenham Hotspur fans can now settle in and expect nothing but inconsistency from this side for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign.
Nine games into the Premier League campaign we have won five and lost four, conceding more than our formerly high flying attack have scored and it seems safe to say that Nuno doesn’t do draws.
Given the performances we are now becoming accustomed to, the surprising thing is we are still sat in sixth place in the table, whilst debating whether or not former talisman Harry Kane should rest his backside on the bench for a bit given his individual performances.
Before we turn our eyes to Manchester United, this midweek we have a EFL Cup break and on Wednesday evening we make the trip to Turf Moor to face Sean Dyche’s Burnley side. We all know how this tie looks on paper and Burnley are way down in 18th spot, but they’ve only scored two fewer than we have and conceded two more.
This is unlikely to be pretty, it won’t be a classic but it will be tight. The only questions that actually matters are, will we be up for the fight and will Nuno make XI changes again and make us even more disjointed than we already are?
