Spurs Stalemate Adds To Wembley Woes

  • Tottenham Hotspur's Spanish striker Fernando Llorente vies with Borussia Dortmund's Greek defender Sokratis during the UEFA Champions League Group H football match between Tottenham

"The reality is that we dropped a lot of points after three games but I am not anxious".

The Lilywhites had scored three goals in both of their last two matches, against Everton and Borussia Dortmund, but the Swans stood firm to rebuff the North London side's attacks.

"I think it was clear that it was so important for us".

His impressive form, affordable price (5.7m) and Spurs' home tie with Swansea prompted many to bring him into their side.

New loan signing Sanches, of Bayern Munich, had a Premier League debut to forget in the 1-0 defeat to Newcastle last time out.

Ki has not played this season after picking up a knee injury on global duty, forcing him to undergo surgery, but boss Paul Clement says he is close to rejoining training.


"He needs to be challenging for Champions Leagues and if Spurs are always going to be that "nearly team", eventually he will want to leave and join a Real Madrid or a Barcelona".

In any case, we hope Llorente enjoys his project of getting paid to watch Harry Kane score lots of goals. Had they played anywhere near their best on Saturday, they would have had far too much for Swansea; indeed, poor creation and conversion that cost them more than Dean's admittedly erroneous decision. Most everyone agrees that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was not actually offside on what would have been an equalizing goal for Dortmund. Dortmund lost the 2013 Champions League final at Wembley, and Tottenham had been a woeful 1-8 in their adopted home stadium. Harry Kane slammed a shot against the bar after Lukasz Fabianski had denied Son Heung-min, while Dele Alli should have done better with a header soon after.

Kane's heroics helped Tottenham to what was only their second win in their last seven matches at Wembley.

Not for the first time, Tottenham dominated but couldn't produce the clinical edge that saw it win 18 of its 19 Premier League home games last season.

'Maybe people will stop talking about hoodoos like they have been for the past year.
