Jamie Redknapp critical of Tottenham after Bournemouth defeat

Jamie Redknapp slated Tottenham for their poor away form after they lost at Bournemouth on Saturday in the Premier League.

Spurs were beaten 1-0 due to Nathan Ake’s stoppage time goal, but it was an action-packed game at Dean Court.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side saw Heung-Min Son dismissed just before half-time for a push, while Juan Foyth was also red carded shortly after the break for a lunging tackle.

The North London club were unable to create any of their chances in the first-half, as teenager Mark Travers impressed on debut for Bournemouth.

Spurs dug in defensively to almost hold out for a point, before ex-Chelsea defender Ake headed in from a corner in the closing stages.

The result means that they stay third in the league table and have lost six consecutive league away games.

Sky Sports pundit was critical of Spurs after another failure on the road, but feels they will still have enough to stay in the top four.

“To lose six away games on the bounce is not good enough for any team,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports’ Football channel (3:00pm, 4 May).

 

“You need that spirit to win away from home, you need things to go your way, you need that extra quality. With the players Tottenham have got that shouldn’t be the case, so that’s a huge disappointment.

“Anything still could happen. It’s still hard to predict who will be the two that get in there (the top four). I do think Tottenham will be one of those, but who knows.”

TBR’s View:

Spurs remarkably still have it in their own hands to finish in the top four and that’s after losing six away games in a row.

But they could need a result on the final day of the season at home to in-form Everton and will have to wait to see what the rest of their top four rivals do over the weekend.

Pochettino’s side weren’t clinical enough when they had the chance to kill the game in the first-half and ultimately a lack of discipline cost them.

They have to try produce an away performance in Europe on Wednesday when they travel to Ajax for the second leg of a Champions League semi-final.

The weekend will have taken plenty out nine-man Spurs and they need to be more clinical against Ajax.
