Why Tottenham should have signed a striker

With Harry Kane out injured, former Liverpool player Stephen Warnock feels that the Spurs could have really benefited had they signed a striker this winter transfer month.

“I still think Spurs will regret not signing a striker,” he told Sky Sports News.

“They will get away with it against certain teams. They struggled at times yesterday to hold the ball up front and it wasn’t until they (City) went down to ten men and that changed – then you’re playing counter attacking football.

“That suits Son, it suits Moura as well, but when you’ve got teams that are sitting deep and you need someone to bounce the play off for the wingers that’s when you need that striker.

“Jose Mourinho will be disappointed not to have got a striker through the door.”

“It could be huge,” he added. “To beat a top side like Manchester City will do their confidence the world of good.

“If Manchester City had stayed with 11 men it’s obviously a completely different game.

“Jose Mourinho spoke after the game about riding your luck a little bit at times, which they had to do.

“He said his players understood what they do in the game. They had to be tactically astute, know the positions, know their roles within the team and they carried that out very well.”

The Spurs are now in the fifth position in the Premier City, right after Manchester City.
