Although early into the season, a time when nothing can be said for certain, Tottenham Hotspur don’t quite seem to have found their killer instinct in front of goal.
Tottenham are a very good side, and have started the season in a solid fashion, with wins over Crystal Palace and Swansea, and a 1-0 loss at the Emirates stadium against Arsenal on Sunday but Tottenham are yet to score from open play in the league yet.
However, it seems that Spurs' new attacking signings still need a little time to adjust to life in the Premier League and the rest of the team need to adjust to life without Gareth Bale.
Tottenham have made some excellent attacking signings in Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen, who are all sure to make a big impact in the league once they are settled down.
However, apart from scoring two penalties thanks to Soldado, Spurs don’t seem to have found there eye for goal just yet this season.
Spurs have been impressive in the games they have played, playing well in midfield and putting pressure on opponents, however, the problem for Spurs fans at the moment is that the pressure isn’t yet leading anywhere.
Spurs haven’t found their cutting edge yet both in terms of finishing and chances created. They have been playing well in midfield and getting the ball to their wide men on several occasions, however, the creative forces at Spurs are yet to havecarved out any meaningful chances and, apart from the penalties, Soldado has not had anything to pounce on.
Of course once the attackers have really settled in, Spurs fans should see plenty of chances created and scored, however, that is yet to materialise in the first few games, which is of course far too early to be worried.
Except from a few errors, their defence looks solid and doesn’t look to be conceding too many goals.
Needless to say, Tottenham if they want to challenge for the top four this season, then they need to start scoring goals from open play sooner rather than later.
