Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo that Tottenham was the better team in their defeat against West Ham in the Premier League. They fell behind to a Michail Antonio goal early in the second half and did not manage a single shot on target in the second half. This was the third instance that Spurs have not managed a single shot in half, more than any other side. Despite these alarming stats, Nuno believes that his side deserved all three points. Tottenham has faltered recently after leading the table following three 1-0 wins to start the season.
“We were the better team, honestly. I think we controlled the game, we had chances. We had possession. West Ham is a good team but they only created chances on counter-attacks and set-pieces. We played better, but this is football.” Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo said. “The last pass was there but we need to be more aggressive in our offensive game. We controlled the game. The whole game was under control. The table is a reference but doesn’t guide us. We have to improve our character as a team, our wish to want to achieve a better team game. We need to work on that.”
“No, the game like I said was under control,” he added. “Changes are required when we think we should. The boys were playing good and then we made the changes at the moment that we felt that the team needed.”
