Spurs scene


Tottenham’s inability to hold a narrow one-goal advantage led to their eventual demise against a frustratingly stubborn Albion.

The match ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

Jermain Defoe, after displaying his killer instinct, was unlucky to have been adjudged offside, which negated what would have been his second goal in as many matches.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto’s deflected half volley gave the home side the lead with 16 minutes remaining.

The White Hart Lane faithful left the grounds miffed and bemused by a last-gasp James Morrison equalizer. Spurs must find a way to be more resolute, especially in the dying minutes of the match. Concentration lapses will make all of the difference in the club’s aspirations to rekindle that Champions League feeling.

One point from two matches will not satisfy Andre Villas-Boas’ insatiable appetite for success. He has, once again, witnessed first had the unpredictable nature of the Barclays Premier League.

If he didn’t realize in his short tenure with Chelsea that the Premier League takes no prisoners, surely he does now.

A touching tribute for former Tottenham captain Ledley King was the highlight of an otherwise underwhelming Spurs’ performance. A true ambassador of football, King was forced to retire at the end of last season due to a plaguing and incessant knee ailment.

His presence is sorely missed at the epicentre of defence.
