Tottenham Defensive Tactics
The spurs maintained their solid defensive record inspite of so many changes. Despite the fact that their average per game is slightly higher when setting up with a back three, they have acknowledged only 10 goals in their 12 games. i.e. three in three as against the prior seven in nine. Four goals have originated from games that are played over their advanced competitors. Out of their five open-play goals, Tottenham FC has acknowledged four goals so far.

Gaps will be visible in the backline due to stretching of the horizontal and the opposition defence will take the advantage. Harry Kane created bigger windows for the goal shots and attack crosses. A player like Erik Lamela, Dele Alli, and Lucas Moura can enhance space and gaps to make the forward run in behind. This serves an evident in the first goal of Lamela’s 3-2 win over Wolves. Despite this, right from deeper positions, Mousa Dembele, Harry Winks and Christian Eriksen can locate the allowable spaces to receive balls between the lines, and then make a forward passing sequence long the central lane.
