Shock loss along the Rhine
Tottenham’s relaxing stroll down the Rhine was not meant to be tonight, after the Spurs’ trip to the Dutch city of Arnhem resulted in a 1-0 loss to SBV Vitesse de la Eredivisie in the GelreDome.
Former Germany U-20 international left-back Maximilian Wittek scored the only goal of the match, putting Fast a goal in favor with only 12 minutes to the end of the second half.
The goal would be enough for Thomas Letsch’s side, as Nuno Espírito Santo’s Tottenham fell to third place in Group G after the Portuguese coach lined up a second matchday of Matchday XI for the European tie.
I still believe that Nuno made the right decision in the grand scheme of things, with the group and the games to come. That starting eleven was more than enough, but some of those veteran Spurs players showed exactly why they are not getting close to the Premier League starting lineup.

But the reality remains that even though a reserve team was deployed, there was more than enough quality for Tottenham to find a result with players like Steven Bergwijn, Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Dele thereand Bryan Gil, all on the team at kick-off.

Alli was singled out for strong criticism as a result of the result, with the London Football correspondent Tottenham Alasdair Gold stating “The most dazzling of them all will have been Dele Alli, who was hardly noticed on the field in Arnhem so small was his contribution on a night when other younger players were watching him. This was a night when challenges were put on the doorstep of Alli and others and they came eagerly. “Note: the full article can be found here.
Team needs confirmed after Tottenham defeat
Fan frustration has reared its ugly head in the direction of Espírito Santo in the wake of such a disappointing loss, while Tottenham fans have called for the January sale of Dele Alli and Harry Winks.
But more than the desire to fire underperforming players should be the highlighting of the absolute need for Tottenham to dive into the transfer market in January to resolve what currently plagues them in two key positions.
Yes, Harry Kane is still on the Spurs books and whether or not he remains beyond this season is irrelevant given the fact that Tottenham does not have a suitable No. 2 forward under the NES let alone answer the question of how they can replace him. in case it does. march from north London.
Persistent links of interest with Fiorentina Dusan Vlahović It at least shows intention on the part of the club, but it also highlights how difficult it is to find a player willing to play a supporting role behind a forward who cannot be lost unless he is rested to recover or deal with injury.
Even more important, the lack of a truly creative player in the middle came home to pose tonight for Tottenham in another position where depth is more than lacking.
The harsh truth is that without the depth needed to tackle a two-front campaign both at home and on the continent, Tottenham may have a very decent first-choice XI, but no quality behind the key figures, neither of them. fronts can be brought to success.
