Pundit criticises Richarlison’s poor form at Tottenham Hotspur

Pundit Tony Cascarino has called Richarlison Tottenham Hotspur’s weak link in the attack at the moment.

Harry Kane’s blockbuster move to Bayern Munich in the summer meant those still at Spurs needed to produce more. Luckily, James Maddison’s transfer from Leicester City has proven to be a hit so far.

The Englishman has taken on the major responsibility of scoring and creating goals at the moment. Son Heung-min, our new captain, is also playing some of his best football this season.

Dejan Kulusevski’s quality, meanwhile, has been there for all to see since his move from Juventus in January 2022 under Antonio Conte. Richarlison, however, seems to be struggling. And that isn’t just this season.

What next for Richarlison?

The Brazil international has arguably failed to justify his £60million price tag since his move from Everton in the summer of 2022. Cascarino believes ‘Richy’ needs to go on a commendable goal-scoring run to help Spurs’ chances of winning the title.

He told TalkSPORT:

“They would be [in the title race] if they can hang in there until Christmas and then make a signing that adds even more to their forward line, that is more natural. I think that’s inevitable… Unless Richarlison finds an absolute period to his game where he improves to a much different level. He is the one that’s vulnerable at the moment in that forward line where you’re thinking there has to be more from him…”

Richarlison’s form, at least on paper, has been nothing to write home about. He has scored just twice in his 35 Premier League appearances for us since moving from the Toffees.

It’s not that he doesn’t have the talent. His form at Everton, Watford, and for Brazil has been good, where he was constantly involved in goals. But at Spurs, he seems to be struggling with regard to consistency.

The 26-year-old is in the prime years of his career and there must come a time when he is getting on the scoresheet regularly. When Son or Maddison aren’t in form, we will need players like Richarlison and ‘Deki’ to step up if we really dream of winning the title this season.
