Tottenham Hotspur was close to victory, but again they were caught in defensive anxiety.
Tottenham suffered a 2-4 come-from-behind defeat in the 7th round of the 2022/23 season Premier League against Manchester City held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 20th (Korean time).
Tottenham finished the first half in a good mood with Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal scoring successively before halftime, but Man City’s counterattack was fierce.
Manchester City launched an onslaught as soon as the second half started, Julian Alvarez scored a comeback goal in the 5th minute, and Elling Hollan equalized 3 minutes later to balance the game.
Manchester City were not content with a tie. Riyad Mahrez gave Man City victory by scoring a turnaround goal and a key goal in the 17th and 44th minutes of the second half, respectively.
In the end, Tottenham suffered a 2-4 come-from-behind defeat in the second half when their defense collapsed and they conceded 4 goals, failing to keep a 2-goal lead. 바카라사이트
It is the first time Tottenham has suffered a come-from-behind defeat without maintaining a two-goal lead in the first half since April 2009 when they suffered a 2-5 come-from-behind loss to Manchester United.
On the other hand, when Tottenham suffered a major defeat, defensive anxiety, which has been raised as a chronic problem for Tottenham this season, was illuminated again.
Tottenham have conceded a whopping 21 goals in their last 10 league matches, including against Man City. On average, that means conceding at least 2 goals per game.
The only match that Tottenham has finished with less than 2 goals in the last 10 matches was against Crystal Palace, which they won 4-0 on the 5th, and they gave up 2 or more goals in all 9 matches other than the Palace match.
Defensive anxiety naturally led to sluggish results. Tottenham’s record in the last 10 matches is 3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses, especially since the second half of the season started, they have only 1 win in 5 matches.
Due to this, Tottenham fans and football experts are raising their voices that Tottenham must sign a defender in the winter transfer market this January.
