Tim Sherwood was looking for positives from Tottenham’s performance against Arsenal in his post-match comments at White Hart Lane. While disappointed that Spurs were unable to recover from Rosicky’s early goal, he felt that the players had shown character and deserved something from the game.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Sherwood said,
We were better than them. I thought we played well, we created chances, played on the front foot and defended together. I think the result for Arsenal is going to paper over a lot of cracks, they were outplayed today and they’ve got to admit that. We’ve outplayed Arsenal and they’re title contenders.”
When speaking to the club’s Twitter account, @SpursOfficial, he said,
If we’d scored, the roof would have come off and I’m sure we’d have gone on to win. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get that breakthrough.
He had got the desired response from his players following two poor performances against Chelsea and Benfica but unfortunately not the result he wanted. He was positive, however, about the prospects for the remaining game of the season saying,
If we produce that level of performance between now and the end of the season, I’m confident we’ll accumulate a lot of points.
Sandro was quoted on @SpursOfficial, saying,
“We feel sad. We showed passion and gave everything. We have to stay together. I know the fans are with us.”
Captain, Younes Kaboul tweeted,
… We clearly deserved a better fate but football are like this sometimes. Thanks to all of you for your support. On to the next one.
