Here is your Tottenham morning digest on Monday, November 1.
O’Hara backs Parker for Spurs job
Nuno has come under increasing pressure following Tottenham’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday evening, with replacements already being talked about in the media.
O’Hara, who represented Spurs for six years between 2005 and 2011, believes Parker is the perfect candidate to take over from the under-fire Portuguese manager.
Latest on Nuno
Daniel Levy and the Tottenham board are very unhappy about Tottenham’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday evening as speculation mounts over Espirito Santo’s future, football.london understands.
The former Wolves boss was only appointed as Spurs’ manager in July, but he is already in the firing line, with his side in a pretty poor run of form.
It is yet to be seen whether or not Nuno will be in the dugout for when Tottenham take on Vitesse on Thursday evening in the Europa Conference League.
Shearer and Wright agree on Spurs
Alan Shearer and Ian Wright have agreed that Tottenham’s’ “no energy” approach to the Manchester United performance was the main reason for the 3-0 home loss in the Premier League.
Speaking on Match of the Day on Saturday night, Wright said: “I thought today, Tottenham were perfect for them, although saying that Man United gave them no time at all.
“At no stage, when we watched Tottenham, because of the way Man United worked and how hard they were working, did they make any Tottenham player feel like he had time on the ball, at any stage.
“They get the ball, but not really under control, because Man United’s players are ready, they get into them to win it back. And it just ended up being aimless from Tottenham, which Man United dealt with really easily.
“It was very comfortable for Manchester United.”
Shearer then said: “There are many words we could use. There was no energy, no intensity, it was all very flat.
“I thought they were going to go after Man United, because they would have been low on confidence after what happened last week, but they never did that at all.
“They didn’t have one effort on target, it was all too safe, too many sidewards and backwards passes.
“It was a constant. Harry [Kane] is not having a good season at all, and this is one of the reasons why, he is trying to come deep and go out wide, he should be in the middle giving them an option there.”
