Following Tottenham Hotspur's 4-0 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield yesterday, there was speculation of a dressing room bust-up between manager Tim Sherwood and his players after their dismal performance.
Sherwood kept his side in the dressing room for 45 minutes after the final whistle, after an embarrassing performance which saw his team produce a catalogue of errors as well as an own goal.
But Sherwood's players angrily put down any rumours, with Aaron Lennon and Roberto Soldado, who both started against Liverpool, taking to social media to air their views.
"Today was not good enough and we let everyone down, but the rumours about the boss hitting someone are b*******, crazy how powerful twitter is," Lennon tweeted.
Striker Roberto Soldado also shook off any claims via his Instagram account:
"Rumours do not benefit (us) at all, and everything that has been said is absolutely false. COYS!"
The loss means Tottenham have taken just one point from eight league games against the top four this season, with questions arising over the security of Sherwood's future at White Hart Lane.
He said: "It does appear we have a problem against the top four. The statistics don't lie. We have to address it. To go where we need to go, we need to get points from those above us." Sherwood admitted after the match.
The defeat and negative speculation only adds to the current problems at the club, but they will be hoping to turn their form around in their next three league games which are against teams who currently sit in the bottom four.
