Top 5: Reasons why Roberto Soldado trumps Defoe (1)

Published Add your comment

Another Tottenham game, another blank in front of goal.

Despite dominating the ball and the first half, Spurs could not break down a
resolute Everton side.

While a draw at Goodison Park is not the worse result in the world – in fact it is the best anyone has got from the blue half of Merseyside since January – there are obvious goalscoring problems for Andre Villas-Boas’ men.

The summer signing of Roberto Soldado was meant to put an end to that, as the ex-Valencia man had banged them in while playing in La Liga and the Champions League, yet recently the Spanish international has come under fire from some in the media for not doing enough.

Jermain Defoe has scored in the cup competitions so why not give him a chance, some say.

Those who have watched Tottenham week in, week out will know that the team has not created enough real goalscoring opportunities, and the vast majority of the record high shots attempted in the league have mainly been from distance.

When it comes down to it, Soldado is the better choice to Defoe, and it is the service that needs to be improved.

If you wonder why the new boy is better than the Englishman, here is why.
