Ian Wright exposes Tottenham’s major problem ahead of Man Utd clash


Former Arsenal star, Ian Wright, has exposed Tottenham Hotspur’s major problem under their manager, Nuno Espirito Santo, ahead of Spurs’ Premier League clash with Manchester United on Saturday.

Wright said Tottenham’s major problem under Santo is the midfield.

Tottenham started the current campaign on a good note with four consecutive wins against Arsenal, Manchester City, Wolves and Watford, but have since suffered a drastic dip in form.

Santo’s side have lost five of their last eleven matches in all competitions.

“I think with Nuno, his major problem is his midfield,” Wright said on Optus Sport’s The Kelly & Wrighty Show.

“You have got Harry Kane, who is not getting chances. We know everything that’s happened with Harry Kane, he’s trying to do his stuff and trying to get on with it.

“But when you’re looking at [Tanguy] Ndombele and [Giovani] Lo Celso, who are supposed to be the creative element of Tottenham, they’re just not consistent enough. Then if he’s going to play [Oliver] Skipp, [Pierre-Emile] Hojbjerg and maybe [Harry] Winks, you can’t see a lot of creativity coming from that.

“The fact that Dele Alli has done his best work as that second striker… Son’s doing that now, so what happens to Dele Alli? I can’t see where it’s going to get better, I can’t see the pattern of what they’re trying to do.”
