Tottenham has struggled for form in front of goal in their recent games, and it is only natural that the potency of their attacking players has been questioned.
They had no shot on target against Bournemouth in their last game. The Cherries are a team that is battling with relegation and almost everyone has beaten them recently.
Spurs’ win over Everton was also as a result of an own goal by Michael Keane.
With the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min on the team, it is inexcusable that Spurs aren’t scoring the goals that they need for their European football target.
However, Jose Mourinho doesn’t think that his attacking players are the problem, and he has hinted that he won’t be signing any new attackers.
“Our attacking players are very good,” he said as quoted by Football.London.
“We cannot get better players than what we have. One thing is not scoring goals and the other is that the players are not good enough.
“They are good enough. I don’t want to replace my players.”
Mourinho has been known as a defensive manager in the past and when he was named as Spurs’ new coach, there were fears that he would not continue their free-flowing attacking football.
Well, it looks like those fears have been realised but the bigger question for me is this, if Mourinho thinks the attackers are good enough, which I agree they are, then who is responsible for the impotence in front of goal?
Maybe the self-proclaimed “special one” should take a closer look at home for the answer to that question.
