The last one was at home, against Manchester United, in a very intense game, which left to desire in defensive terms, allowing four goals from the opponent, ending then defeated. The dismal performance of the defense in that confrontation confirms what the team has been presenting since the start of the competition, so much that it is currently one of the five worst defenses.

Tottenham made a good start in the English championship and came to accumulate four wins in a row, but saw his performance fall and currently three days he does not win, having suffered two losses in that period. The last of these occurred outside the home, against Leicester City, in a game in which he had more possession of the ball and created a good volume of scoring opportunities, but he did not show efficiency and ended up overtaken by the opponent. This was only the fourth game in which the team suffered two goals, showing that they have been doing a good job in the defensive system, being among the top five of the competition.
