“Crying Out For Ndombele” – These Spurs Fans Demand Half-Time Change Vs Chelsea
By Joe Fish -

Well that was dreadful.

The worst 45 minutes of the Jose Mourinho era thus far is saved for the first half of his biggest game yet – the visit of his former club Chelsea.

We’ve been completely outplayed – and Mourinho out-thought by his beloved Frank Lampard – with Willian’s brace, including a stoppage-time penalty giving the Blues a deserved 2-0 lead at half time.

The main problem has – again – been passing the ball through midfield, which a combination of Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko is not designed to do.

They have not been helped today by the poor distribution of the defenders.

So far, Mourinho has overcome that problem by playing more direct, often missing out midfield, but that has not worked this afternoon with Lampard deploying three strong centre-backs.

We need to change the dynamic in the centre of the park – and these Spurs fans on Twitter think they know the man to do it.

Record summer signing Tanguy Ndombele is back on the bench after missing a couple of matches with a hamstring injury.

    We just made an average team look like world beaters. Absolutely no positives whatsoever

  2. Tony Borg says:

    We’ve got to get rid of Dier, he certainly lives up to his name, with him and Sissoko in the middle there is no creativity whatsoever. I’d take them both off, we should have started with Ndombele and Winks in the middle, if they’re both fit enough.

      I don’t believe that any midfield our squad could produce would have been good enough to better the quality of chelski’s set up.
