We’ve Got The One Vinicius Stat That Is Bound To Have Infuriated Mourinho
By Harry Hotspur -

As I rake through the stats to add some sanity to a win by a margin of 4 goals, it is difficult, but not entirely impossible to suspend one’s disbelief and view individual performances objectively.

José Mourinho, who straight after the game metaphorically flicked Carlos Vinícius’ ear, despite delivering 2 goals and an assist. The gaffer wants more ambition from the boy and I don’t blame him.

As we discovered earlier this morning, Ludogorets were probably one of the worst sides Spurs have faced since records began.

So where were the missed opportunities in a game in which the Benfica boy delivered two goals and ans assist?

Total actions / successful

The Brazilian had 76 involvements with the ball in total, yet only 19 were successful. A 25% success rate for a player who was on the park for 95-minutes, against a side that were beaten 4-0 is nothing shy of disgraceful.

Greater levels of concentration are required if Carlos is going to have any meaningful impact in the Premier League.

There will be some fans who feel all this to be churlish. To those, I can only tell you this, you are guarding the same rabbit hole that Dele Alli fell down.

From those stats it does look bad for Carlos but I feel he’s still adapting to life in England & a new language, etc.
The football side of things will come once he settles in a little more which after last night’s 2 goals, is developing.
But 2 goals & 3 assists in a total of 278 minutes football is not a bad return.

You are of course correct Mr Stew. He’s been here 5 minutes and this country, this club, this manager, and all his team mates, are new to him. Maureen clearly feels Vin requires a stick not a carrot; fair enough. If only 25% of what he did was successful, and he scored 2 and made one in a 4-0 win, he’s clearly doing something right. Imagine when he’s settled in.

I like the look of the lad.

He hadn’t played since coming on three weeks ago ,late on as a sub at WBA and helping Spurs get the win,big strong and took his first of two goals well.The most important stats Jose cares for is goals and points. Looks a great player and just needs game time. Only one goal behind Aubameyang for the season.
