“A lot to answer for”: Spurs fans unhappy with Nuno’s midfield selection in Palace loss


Tottenham lost out to Crystal Palace today as Patrick Vieira got one over his former rivals with a first win as Eagles manager at Selhurst Park.

Goals from Wilf Zaha and Odsonne Edouard (2) were enough for Palace to see Spurs off, who also saw Japhet Tanganga sent off in the second half for a second yellow card.

It was not the return from the international break Nuno Santo will have wanted, and it was clear that Spurs missed the likes of Heung-Min Son and Steven Bergwijn in the final third.

One of the problems Spurs fans seemed to point out on the day was the decision to play a midfield three of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks, and Oliver Skipp. It was a three that looked solid enough, but lacked any sort of creativity.

Twitter, then, was full of comments from Spurs fans bemoaning the lack of creativity from central areas. Away from being too harsh on their team and new manager, many Spurs fans felt it was a midfield destined to fail.

And after being proven right in that thought, here’s what some Tottenham fans had to say on the matter.
