The last game that the Spurs played ahead of international break was versus the Toffees and that was a scoreless draw.
Everton is not that bad a team and a draw against them is not the most disappointing result ever for Tottenham, but, coming out of White Hart Lane post that game, most of the fans were bitterly disappointed.
It was the 4th match in a row in this Premier League that Tottenham’s attack just looked powerless.
Mauricio Pochettino’s formation in that Everton game had three players in the attacking role in the midfield, but, the penetration was still missing.
The pressure was being applied by that trio, but, the Everton defence had them covered easily and that was because there was no real speed at the flanks.
It’s that which Pochettino needs to acknowledge. He needs a bit of a spark in the wide positions
He has got a couple of players who are blessed with sizzling speed and can do that for him.
Clinton N’Jie, who although is a striker originally, can be put out there as a right winger if Tottenham goes on all out attack.
The other choice can be Son Heung-Min. He can also bring some creativity into play in a wide position and he would be full of confidence as well having scored three goals for his national side Korea in a recent game.
Yes, neither of these two is experienced with regards to Premier League. They have made their way to English Football just recently and are yet to make their debuts, but, they’ve it in them to make a difference for Tottenham. Wonderful talents both of them are.
Tottenham is set to visit Sunderland the coming weekend. It would be interesting if one of N’Jie or Heung-Min gets handed a debut there.
