Nuno Espirito Santo says Tottenham’s ‘many problems’ cannot be solved on the training ground amid a hectic schedule as he encourages players who shoot wrong to perform in matches as they head for Wolves in the Carabao Cup

  • Tottenham have lost their last two league games 3-0 due to a collapse of form
  • Nuno Espirito Santo’s team lost heavily to Chelsea on Sunday in their last game
  • They go to Wolves on Wednesday evening in the third round of the Carabao Cup

  • Due to a busy schedule, the manager urged his players to fix things during matches











Nuno Espirito Santo says Tottenham don’t have time to solve their ‘many problems’ in training and need to use games to improve as they face Wolves in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

Nuno complained about their lack of wins, performance levels and absent players, while Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn are currently in doubt for Sunday’s North London derby.

Tottenham started the Premier League season well, with three consecutive 1-0 wins, but have struggled ever since, losing 3-0 in successive league games against Crystal Palace and Chelsea.

“We don’t have much time on the training ground,” Nuno said. “Let’s use the competition and manage our team.

‘I know what’s happening. With all my respect, I think I’m very clear. We are working on it. We are working hard. We are aware that we have problems that we need to improve.’

Nuno brushed aside every question about Harry Kane, especially the one about why he was operating so far away from the opposition.

Instead, the Tottenham manager gave only general answers, saying Kane’s positioning was a ‘product of the team’.

Statistics show that a total of 77 other Premier League players have taken more strokes in the opponent’s penalty area than the England striker.

‘That’s the past. Nothing we can say or do in the future will change the past,” Nuno said. “What we have to do with the past is put it behind our heads and put it in the present.

“We need to find the process within the team,” the Spurs boss added to Kane. “It’s all players. All players. We have to tell them and find solutions and find the best way.

‘In the last game Harry started on the left, very high and it went well. Unfortunately we couldn’t score. We have had opportunities for that. We try to reinvent and create situations that can improve our football and our game. Harry is part of the team.”
