Tottenham aren't quite at rock bottom, but Nuno Espirito Santo's side is in freefall. After a relatively successful August in which Spurs won their first three Premier League matches 1-0, putting them atop the table and earning Nuno the Premier League Manager of the Month Award, September's action could not have been much bleaker. Spurs' ambitious August was followed by three humiliating London derby losses to Crystal Palace, Chelsea, and now Arsenal. The north Londoners are presently in the Premier League's bottom half, and their schedule isn't getting any easier.
The club's whole season was ruined by a 3-1 derby loss to Arsenal on Sunday. Spurs were swept away in just over half an hour by a squad that was bottom of the table with zero points just a few weeks ago. Nuno's Spurs are now a point behind Arsenal in the Premier League rankings, with little signs of that trend reversing. It's no surprise that the travelling Spurs fans were deafeningly quiet for the whole of the north London derby.
Arsenal's loss, which came courtesy of goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Bukayo Saka, was awful, but the defeats to Palace and Chelsea were as bad. Prior to Japhet Tanganga's red card, Spurs did not glance at the races at Selhurst Park, allowing Patrick Vieira's side to steal three late goals. Spurs started well against Chelsea, but Nuno's side were similarly dull in surrendering three second-half goals again when the Blues made a tactical half-time adjustment.
When it comes to Tottenham's goal conceded, when it rains, it pours. They have now surrendered 11 goals in their past four games, including a 2-2 Europa Conference League tie with Rennes. While Tottenham's defense is terrible and riddled with flaws, their attacking performance is even more startling, especially given the presence of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min up front.
