Spurs 2 Hull City 0 – two moments of quality win the game for Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino is nothing if not consistent. Here he went with the same  Continue reading

Hull 1 Spurs 2 – a red card and Aaron Lennon change the game

Vertonghen and Ramirez - Hull Spurs

 

A fortunate win after a dreadful first half and a cheap sending off that turned the game – this was a carbon copy of the trip to Villa.
