’55 PL games and 5 goals between them?’ talkSPORT pundit berates star names

By Mehdi Gokal -

Former Aston Villa striker turned pundit Gabriel Agbonlahor slammed Tottenham’s Richarlison and Manchester United’s Antony for their poor performances during Spurs vs United on Saturday.

The game between Tottenham and Manchester United was an entertaining one with Spurs coming out as 2-0 winners.

The game was extremely open with a number of chances at both ends. In particular in the first half, Manchester United came close to scoring several times while Spurs looked threatening every time on the counter.

Pape Matar Sarr scored the opener for Tottenham with a well taken finish from Kulusevski’s deflected cross. And towards the end of the game, Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez scored a comical own goal to seal the win for Spurs.

Despite Tottenham’s win, Gabriel Agbonlahor was critical of Richarlison’s performance as well as Antony, calling both of them ‘bluffers’.

The TalkSPORT pundit posted on his X account (formerly Twitter):

“Antony and richarlison 55 premier league games and 5 goals between them? Honestly both a pair of bluffers!” 

Richarlison joined Spurs from Everton in a record £60m deal. But the Brazilian has struggled to live up to his price tag, having scored only one goal in the Premier League and three in 35 appearances in all competitions last season.

Many thought he would find his old form back under Ange Postecoglou but in the two games so far, he has looked been average.

TBH Says:

With Tottenham undergoing major squad rebuild this summer which includes the sale of their superstar striker Harry Kane, we are hoping that Richarlison can step up and contribute more effectively to the team’s attack.

It is interesting to see if the Brazilian forward can prove his critics wrong and justify his price tag through improved performances.
