Former Tottenham man slams centre backs for their defending of Fulham’s equaliser
By Bruce Grove -

William Gallas has slammed Tottenham’s defending of Ivan Cavaleiro’s equaliser in their game against Fulham yesterday.

The Lilywhites had the chance to move closer to the top of the Premier League table if they had won the game against the Cottagers.

They took the lead through a Harry Kane header in the first half, but Fulham came out after the break more determined to earn something from the game.

They eventually scored a goal on the 74th minute, but that was a goal that they could have avoided conceding.

Watching the match at home, former Tottenham defender, William Gallas wasn’t impressed with the display of Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier, who partnered each other in the heart of the Tottenham defence.

He took to his Instagram account to post a clip of the goal, which showed Cavaliero winning his header between two Tottenham players, and he captioned the post.

“Tottenham central defenders you must defend better than that”

Jose Mourinho prides himself with setting up his team to defend effectively, and he would not have been impressed with the showing of his centre backs in that game.

This might force him to change the partnership at the back in their next game.

Ironic as it sounds – the fact that the majority of our defenders are average or poor and yet we still have the second best defence in the league demonstrates that Jose is doing s decent job defensively. Give him some class defenders to work with and I am sure our offensive play will improve.

Jose needs to know we’ll have next to no individual and/or ‘unforced’ errors when we’re defending.

At this moment in the season we’re almost as bad as any given oppo in that regard and it’ll be driving him mad.

The reason we have conceded a lowish amount of goals is also the reason we don’t score and win enough games. We have defended as a team with everyone behind the ball but it hurts us when we get the ball. It’s harder stamina wise without the ball that is why Barcelona and City were so successful. To play Jose game you need quality defenders who can hit a long pass for the break away and very fast skillful attackers. However it takes so much out of players chasing the ball for seventy or more minutes especially when your at home against teams who don’t score many goals.

We can keep this going forever but truth is if I were a Fulham player looking at the spurs starting eleven I would be thinking keep it tight hang in there and we have a chance. That midfield and back four don’t scare us.
