Tottenham lost 1-2 in the 15th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) against West Ham at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, at 5:15 a.m. on the 8th (Korea time).
It was a disappointing upset. Tottenham took the lead 10 minutes into the first half when Christian Romero scored a header from a corner kick. Tottenham dominated the first half but kept failing to score more.
In the end, Tottenham paid the price. In the sixth minute of the second half, Mohamed Kudus attempted a left footed shot from outside the penalty box, and when Romero blocked it with his body, it was deflected by Ben Davies and passed to Gerard Bowen. Bowen drilled Vicario with a precise right footed shot.
The scene of the come-from-behind goal was even more absurd. In the 28th minute of the second half, Destiny Udogi made a back pass to Vicario and Bowen competed to intercept the ball. With the goal empty, James Ward-Frouse pushed the ball into the air, and Tottenham ended up losing 1-2.
Due to the defeat, Tottenham continued its slump of one draw and four losses in recent five games, falling to fifth place (27 points). Moreover, Tottenham became the first team in EPL history to score the first goal in five consecutive games and fail to win a victory.
With 10 undefeated matches, he immediately fell into a swamp of five wins without a win, prompting intense criticism from coach Postecoglou. 에볼루션 바카라사이트
According to the British newspaper The Sun, former Tottenham manager Rod Suga shot at his inability to keep the lead, saying, “It’s better not to ask Postecoglou to walk me with his dog. He will also be dragged by his dog.”
Of course, Postecoglou expressed dissatisfaction with the outcome of the match. “We controlled the game well. We should have scored more goals but the game failed to end. Both offense and defense were poor. We have a long way to go,” Postecoglou said in a rebuke.
