The latest weapon we’ve added to our armoury under Andre Villas-Boas appears to be the slide rule pass with five of our last eleven goals arriving this way.
Andre Villas-Boas deployed three centre backs in the second half against Arsenal, could we see more of this formation from Spurs in the future?
Tottenham dominate the first 17 mins, but Adebayor’s red card forces Andre Villas-Boas in to several tactical changes as it finishes Arsenal 5 Spurs 2.
Aaron Lennon flew out of the gates this season looking to have adapted to AVB’s tactics. In his last 4 Premier League matches he appears to be slowing down.
Tottenham ruthlessly expose the left side of the Saints defence to get shots in the box, then look to defend as it finishes Southampton 1 Spurs 2.
