Alan Shearer referred to Spurs as “weak as” following their 1-1 draw with relegation hopefuls Everton on Monday night at Goodison Park.

Spurs, who parted ways with manager Antonio Conte during the international break, were expected to win after Abdoulaye Doucoure was sent out for attacking Harry Kane in the 58th minute.

Moments later, the England captain scored a penalty kick.

From then, Tottenham should have won with relative ease. However, a stunning challenge by Lucas Moura on Michael Keane resulted in the Brazilian’s dismissal prior to Keane’s retaliation.

The Everton defender scored an incredible long-range goal in the final minute to salvage a draw.

Tottenham is now in fourth place, tied in points with third-place Newcastle and fifth-place Manchester United. Nonetheless, both of those sides have two games in hand over Cristian Stellini’s squad.

As a result, Spurs’ performance on Monday night must be deemed unsatisfactory.

Shearer Claims Tottenham Hotspur are ‘Weak’


Former Premier League striker Alan Shearer was unimpressed with Tottenham, and he expressed his concerns via Twitter.

“Brilliant comeback from Everton and deserved at least a point,” he shared on social media, “Spurs weak as.”

Tottenham’s interim manager Cristian Stellini answered reporters’ questions following the club’s draw.

“My feeling now is that we have lost two points this evening because with 11 men against 10 we have to control the game much better,” he told Sky Sports,  “We try to but not the way I expect.”

“After our red card the power of the game was with them,” he added, “They find an amazing goal and they draw the game. We have to do much better.”

“We tried to press them to not give much possession away but if you do this they kick long,” Stellini said, “We have to win the second balls and start again. We didn’t do good in possession. You control the game with the ball, not without.”

“We have to control the game much better with the ball. We know when they play they kick long and they fight for the second ball. We were ready to do it but with 11 men we have to control the game much better.”

Stellini Still Confident of Making Champions League


Asked by the BBC if Spurs could still make the top four, Stellini replied that he felt they could.

“We are confident because we have a big squad with good players. Now we have a week to prepare for the next match. We are confident, absolutely.”

Everton are now 15th in the English top-flight’s standings, one point above the relegation zone. Only seven points separate Crystal Palace (12th) and Southampton (20th) in the Premier League.

Given how tight things are at the bottom of the Premier League, there is a good probability that Everton’s point against Spurs will be the deciding factor come May.

Following the game, the goalscoring hero Michael Keane spoke on the significance of the draw for Everton.

“At this stage of the season every point is massive. Every contribution could be huge come the end of the season… we know what we have to do and what it takes to get out of it and hopefully we can.”
