O'Hara noticed something 'worrying' about Tottenham players vs Wolves
Jamie O’Hara suggested on Astro SuperSport that he was alarmed by the way the Tottenham Hotspur players were acting as they waited for the start of the second-half of their Premier League clash with Wolves on Sunday.
Antonio Conte’s men had been on a bizarre run of late. They had followed each of their previous four wins with a defeat in their next game, culminating in the loss against Southampton in midweek.
They would have hoped to temporarily keep that run going against Wolves. However, two early goals saw Bruno Lage’s men strengthen their own claim for a spot in the European places.
Conte obviously will have been under no illusions regarding just how much lies ahead for him. But any Tottenham fans hoping for immediate miracles under the Italian have had those dreams quashed emphatically.
Clearly, a lot still needs to change in North London. And for plenty of the fans, significant changes to the squad are still required.
And for O’Hara, no moment perhaps encapsulated the potential problems and disjointedness within the squad better than in the moments while the Tottenham team were waiting for Wolves to emerge for the second-half.
“Just looking at those pictures there. That looks a bit worrying to me,” he told Astro SuperSport, looking at the squad gearing up for the restart.
“Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris get them together but it looks like they’re having conversations on their own. It doesn’t look right to me.”
Levy will be under no illusions if Conte is unable to turn Tottenham season around following Wolves defeat
Tottenham remain in a good position in the race for the top four. However, they have squandered their place on pole. They still have games in hand over West Ham and Wolves.
But they are now three points adrift of Arsenal having played the same number of fixtures.
Conte has overseen some progress. There is a connection between him and the supporters that Nuno Espírito Santo never seemed to have beyond the opening day of the campaign.
The Italian is a world-class manager. If anyone is going to take Tottenham back amongst the heavyweights, he is the man.
So it says a lot that things are not going to plan. And with that, Daniel Levy can be under no illusions heading into the summer.
