Nuno’s derby nightmares continue

West Ham United v Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League – London Stadium – Reaction

West Ham United 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur

Four London derby matches – Four defeats for Tottenham Hotspur boss, Nuno Espirito Santo.

In truth, Tottenham flattered to deceive at the London Stadium. They lacked creativity and lacked energy against a busy and altogether brighter West ham outfit.

“It is always frustrating, a London derby that we know means a lot to our fans, means a lot to us and we were not able to win it – I am disappointed because it hurts, I know it hurts,” Nuno bemoaned.

The Spurs boss lifted some of the pressure from his side, insisting his side had competed satisfactorily with the East Londoners: “The way we conceded, but apart from I think that we had a good game.

“We had possession we had control of the game, we created, besides the counter-attacks of West Ham we didn’t allow many situations.

“We should be better in the offensive box, the chance to be aggressive in that moment of the game. This is my thought.”

But Nuno conceded there wasn’t too much to take from the Lilywhites latest setback: “Not too many (positives) but when you lose a game like today that I believe we were the better team.

“The only positive is feeling that there are aspects to improve that will guide us to winning more matches.”
