'Worse than Jose': Some Spurs fans fear the worst with Nuno over this 'massively concerning' stat
The north London side were outplayed against their city rivals. Patrick Vieira’s side claimed their first win of the Premier League season. As for Spurs, the loss to Palace was crushing.
After Tottenham won their opening three Premier League games, the defeat to the Eagles felt like all their hard work had been undone in one afternoon.
And a worrying stat has emerged that has really highlighted how Spurs’ start to life under Nuno has been somewhat deceiving. Tottenham have faced more shots out of anyone in the Premier League so far this season.
Moreover, after the loss to Palace, Spurs have now created the least amount of chances this campaign. After all, Tottenham’s three Premier League wins this season have all been narrow 1-0 wins.
Indeed, something is not working at Spurs under Nuno. And supporters on social media are already fearing that the Portuguese coach will be out of the door if things don’t improve soon.
Here’s what some Tottenham fans had to say on Twitter about these surprising stats…
Welcome to Nuno ball, worse than Jose ball— Alfie (@AlfieButler20) September 12, 2021
Even more so considering we've played either 2 or even 3 holding midfielders. With Europa Conference starting, not sure when Nuno is going to get much time to fix in training. Personally would write off away Europe games, and send Mason and the kids, should still get through— Paul976431 (@paul976431) September 12, 2021
Three jammy wins took the attention away from these stats but we were due a hammering like yesterday. Chelsea next, great 🙃— Mac ♉︎ (@Macaully_Moffat) September 12, 2021
Also yesterday was the fewest attempts we’ve had in a match for 16 years and the first time in a premier league match that Harry Kane hasn’t touched the ball in the opponent’s penalty area. Massively concerning!— Harry Carlton (@HarryCarlton55) September 12, 2021
Just goes to show that yer we won 3 games all be it a goal to nil but sitting back invites pressure. Thought the plan was to attack this season?— DJ WiZ (@Benjaminwiz1) September 12, 2021
Nuno will be gone by christmas— Henrik Örtenvik (@Ortenvik) September 12, 2021
