The only stat that proves Nuno Santo is the wrong man for Tottenham’s job

The only statistic that proves Nuno Espirito Santo is the wrong man for Tottenham's job

Tottenham vs Chelsea

Tottenham fell in an embarrassing 3-0 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace last weekend.

That defeat came on the back of Spurs’ excellent start to the season, which saw them take three wins out of three in the Premier League.

As a result, the Lilywhites are undoubtedly desperate to get back on the winning track this weekend.

However, Tottenham have a rather difficult task ahead, taking on their London rivals Chelsea on Sunday.

The Blues have been one of the best teams in England since Thomas Tuchel took office and are likely to become one of the Spurs’ toughest opponents this term.

Why Nuno is a bad fit for Tottenham

As a result, Spurs fans are unlikely to be overly pleased with the recent stat that has emerged about their new boss before the game.

Before taking over at Tottenham, Nuno Santo, of course, managed Wolves for several years in the Premier League.

And, as revealed BBC Sport, during his time in the English top flight:

Nuno Espirito Santo’s teams have failed to score in the first half in 83 of his 118 Premier League games in charge.

This will undoubtedly be an especially big concern for the Lilywhites in their confrontation with Chelsea.

The Blues are one of the most defensive teams in Europe since Thomas Tuchel took over and Tottenham really can’t wait until the second half of their tie on Sunday to speed up and start causing problems for them.

In addition, said statistic highlights that Nuno is not exactly the most offensive manager, but prefers a pragmatic and defensive approach in many of his games, already demonstrated at the Spurs by their series of 1-0 victories at the beginning of the season.

However, this is not what Tottenham want. The fans were fed up with José Mourinho’s boring defensive displays last season. And, in May, Daniel Levy said This is what I wanted from a manager:

“We are well aware of the need to select someone whose values ​​reflect those of our great club and return to playing football in the style for which we are known: flow, attack and entertain, while still embracing our desire to see the youths. players thrive in our Academy alongside seasoned talents. “

And, as the above statistic from the BBC shows, Nuno is far from this.
