With a mixed October international break for our travelling players, Tottenham Hotspur can now start preparing for our return to real Premier League action this weekend as we host Watford at our new White Hart Lane Stadium.
With two defeats in the last three league games, we’ve slipped into ninth place in the top flight table and we sit massively off Liverpool’s pace, with eleven points.
With the disappointment, criticism and some reflection, ringing in everyone’s ears, there simply has to be a reaction on Saturday as we can’t slip to our fourth defeat of the year (given we’ve only won three), as tensions will only rise further, as despite how bad the above sounds I’ve deliberately tried not to reference the Bayern Munich embarrassment from a few weeks ago.
Three points would give everyone a boost and with some fans clamouring for the youngsters, others believing our more experienced players will step up and give a reaction, in some ways the only selection headache for manager Mauricio Pochettino is whether or not Paulo Gazzaniga takes the spot, or do we get a quick reintroduction to the returning Michel Vorm.
I’m not sure where things stand on an injury front as I type this, but it would be nice if we had some luck there.
