SPURS 1 SUNDERLAND 0We had more shots than any other team in the Premier League this season in the first half, but they weren't real clear cut chances. We started well, we had most of the ball, 59% of our passes were in the opposition half, but in the second half, when we had gone 1-0 up, we seemed to take our foot off the gas a little.
There was almost an air of we have done enough, we started defending a little deeper. When passing the ball around at the back we were nearer our own goal and we looked as though we may get caught by a sucker punch from a mistake and we did make a few during that period.
We still created chances and central to our performance was the performance of South Korean Son Heung-min, who again starred and justified the clubs decision not to allow him to leave. We fans expected him to improve in his second season and he has certainly done that. From a promising beginning he faded away and his beginning this season is even better than lasts.
We want to see the level of performance he put in away to Stoke and now at home to Sunderland on a regular basis. That allows us to rotate the attacking midfield three, especially with Moussa Sissoko looking the part as well.
