For Tottenham, the beginning of the season was the best of times, and now the home stretch is the worst of times.
One week ago, Tottenham saw their title hopes take a crushing blow thanks to a 5-2 loss to Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.
"It's just one game," Spurs fans told themselves. "Next up is Manchester United at home. We can win this. We can bounce back."
How wrong they were.
On Sunday night, Tottenham looked slow on defense, leaderless in the midfield and confused at forward. The team made a howler of a mistake not marking Wayne Rooney on his header off a corner at the end of the first half and Kyle Walker looked lost and inexperienced at times, letting Ashley Young get around him for two goals in the 60th and 69th minute, respectively.
As a team, Tottenham looked dull but individually there were bright spots. Who exactly were those bright spots? Read on for how the players rated and let me know if you agree.
