2-0 loss vs Manchester United labelled Tottenham Hotspur’s worst performance of the season

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara has labelled Spurs’ 2-0 loss to Manchester United as probably the club’s worst performance this season.

The match seemed like it was going to be end-to-end for the entirety of the 90 minutes after the start both teams had. However, the Red Devils completely dominated the game after the 10-minute mark.

Yes, the game was at Old Trafford, but that is no excuse for what we saw on Wednesday night from the team. It seemed like we were inviting too much pressure – more than we can handle.

Moreover, we were losing possession at will with poor first touches and passes in midfield. It was either a poor tactical plan, or the players could not do what they were asked to by manager Antonio Conte.

O’Hara, who was on Spurs’ books between 2005 and 2011, exclusively told talkSPORT:

“Look, take nothing away from them, it was probably Spurs’ worst performance of the season but it was probably Manchester United’s best performance of the season.”

“They were brilliant. Everyone is going to jump on the bandwagon of how bad Spurs were and yes, we were bad, we were shocking, it was Arsenal all over again.”

O’Hara then goes on to praise Manchester United further. He continued:

“But Manchester United were sensational. They did not give us a kick. They did not give us a second on the ball.”

The only performance as bad as this was perhaps the one against Arsenal, but at least we can put it down to being down to 10 men in the last 30 or so minutes. The 2-0 loss against Sporting CP was also uninspiring

More Tottenham News:

But we were in the game until the two very late goals from the Portuguese side. The game against United is a reality check of sorts. We are not title contenders yet and should not dream of it until we can start to hold our own against world-class opposition.
