Tottenham vs Middlesbrough
After the very questionable start of the season, Tottenham decided to change Pochettino by inviting Jose Mourinho, which still can’t find the right way to play. During the last 10 matches under Jose team won 3 games, lost already 5 and drew two games with Norwich and Middlesbrough at Riverside Stadium. These are far from the best results so for Spurs is very important to show better football playing over the Championship opponents.
In Premier League they stand at 8th place at the moment. They have the same amount of wins and defeats so far, what is a very weak result for vice-champion of Champions League. Even playing with almost the same squad they should be much more dangerous in the attacks, but Harry Kane’s injury even more complicates the chances to get back to the best shape.
The Boro had very biog troubles at the beginning of the season but now everything is changed to the better way. They are unbeaten in 6 recent games with 4 wins. Jonathan Woodgate looks very excited by managing the home club. Unfortunately being at 16th place in Championship at the moment doesn’t give many chances for this club to fight for the places in Premier League. However, if they will continue playing such a strong and confident football they can fight for a place in Top 6.
During the first game, they gave all possession to their opponents. However, they scored first after a very accurate Saville pass to Fletcher and a great finish. Right after several changes and 11 minutes Lucas Moura equalised the result. But in general, Tottenham had much more chances to succeed but failed to use all given chances. Mostly this is the main reason why they are losing and drawing last matches even playing against strongest opponents.
