95% Successful Passing Accuracy & 65% Duels Won: Spurs Had One Player Aside From Kane That Truly Cared
By Harry Hotspur -

The heat map above is of our boy Højbjerg, and it’s interesting (most heat maps are a bit dull and difficult to use to illustrate much beyond the obvious) in the respect that we can see how the Dane was pulled across to cover our backline, specifically when Reguilon was ‘going wrong‘ for want of a better term.

Passes / accurate

When you’re in a tight spot, you need men you can count upon, and when your #1 defensive midfielder is busy and yet only makes 4 passes, then you have a true stalwart on your books.

Duels / won

Pierre won a lot of duels and enjoyed further success with aerial duels, hitting 67% in that discipline.

Further evidence in favour of Pierre and against our backline comes in the form of Interceptions and just look at where the bulk of these had to be made.

José Mourinho’s bench and wider squad contain those that cannot be trusted, Pierre has to be one of those he couldn’t operate without.

PEH has been a bit mixed of late and I’m not sure the tank is running a little empty (the missed header/ salmon impression vs Villa was an example ) and some of the recent goals we’ve conceded I don’t think we would have in the autumn. Winks and Sissoko just not being good enough doesn’t help PEH and I think he’s dropped out of beast mode.

He was partly at fault by not winning the challenge that led to the first goal though, Winks took a stoning for a similar mistake against spam .

That list of players Jose can rely on is pretty small and shrinking by the hour it seems. Might be able field a five a side team of players he can count on.
