After one game in charge of Tottenham as interim manager, Tim Sherwood's win percentage stands at 0%, with Spurs having lost their Wednesday night Capital One Cup tie against West Ham at White Hart Lane.

Is Sherwood the right man to take Spurs forward?

Spurs took on a different shape in the West Ham game, with Sherwood opting to play two strikers in Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor - something that Andre Villas-Boas was rumoured to have been trying out in training but was never used during games before being sacked.

Spurs took the lead in front of the White Hart Lane faithful, through a stunning Emmanuel Adebayor goal after 67 minutes. They relaxed after this and Sherwood made two substitutions taking the goal scorer and Andros Townsend off, opting to bring on Nacer Chadli and Lewis Holtby and to change the formation.

This ultimately led to Spurs downfall when after 80 minutes, Matt Jarvis scored to level the game and just five minutes later, substitute Modibo Maiga scored.

This goal won the game for the Hammers and sent the Lillywhites crashing out of the cup.

Can Tim Sherwood be the manager to make a success of Spurs?

Injury problems currently plague the teams defence, making frequent changes necessary, which, isn't making the Spurs defence as strong as it looked in the opening part of the season.

With an away trip on Sunday to in-form Southampton, would a further loss mean the introduction of yet another new manager at White Hart Lane?
