Is Roy Keane correct in accusing Spurs of being a bit too soft?

After Spurs slumped to a 2-0 defeat at home against Leicester City in the Premier League, Roy Keane has accused Tottenham of being ‘soft’ and falling back on old tendencies.

After a week where Spurs drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace, lost to Liverpool and were beaten by Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes, Roy Keane has suggested that they were a bit “like the Spurs of the old days.”

He continued: “Lots of credit to Mourinho for sorting it, but conceding late at Liverpool, not holding on at Crystal Palace and now this. They’ve gone back to the “Spursy” way.

“They’ve given a crazy goal away, they’ve conceded late on against Liverpool, a set play. They don’t hang on at Palace. They’ve gone back to the old Spursy way with a bit of softness.”

Spurs will be the last team to play a game in Matchweek 15 and if all the teams below them win their games, they could be ninth by Saturday evening which will be a harsh swing of momentum.

There’s no denying that the Lily Whites have been very good so far this season but with so many sides playing good football in the top half of the table this year, missed chances will be damaging.

If Mourinho’s players find themselves 9th place before they face Wolves, it will be a rude awakening and the two chances that Steven Bergwijn had against Liverpool will feel even more like a missed opportunity.

Mourinho and his coaching staff will be all too aware of how important it is that Spurs don’t drop points for a fourth consecutive game as it will make challenging for the league title that much harder.
