This is a headline – that for those that woke up this morning with broken television sets – is unlikely to be received with much warmth. Ketamine Hotspur let us and themselves down yesterday in a match that was mostly unwatchable, unless you were an Everton fan.
So these deeper delves into individual players’ performances are bound to get fans screaming about ‘stats’ not telling the whole story!, which is entirely fair comment, however, you can’t tar everyone with the same brush, no matter how angry you might be.
Matty Doherty is better than yesterday’s game, I speak not just as a seasoned watcher of football, but someone who still hasn’t yet fathomed why Wolves agreed to sell him to us in the first place.
The two key areas of weakness were linked to his overall fitness, which we are led to believe by José Mourinho, was down to a COVID-19 outbreak at Hotspur Way, that negated proper training.
