Po­chet­tino no com­plaints after Spurs fail to win again

The National - News - - SPORT | FOOTBALL - GARETH COX

Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur’s win­less run in the Premier League stretched to five games as Ge­orge Bal­dock’s equaliser earned an im­pres­sive Sh­effield United side a 1-1 draw yes­ter­day.

The hosts were for­tu­nate to go ahead in the 58th minute through Son He­ung-min’s goal and again when David McGoldrick’s ap­par­ent equaliser soon af­ter­wards was ruled out by VAR.

Son’s goal was Spurs’ first at­tempt on tar­get but it failed to spark Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino’s side into life.

Chris Wilder’s United kept plug­ging away and were duly re­warded when Bal­dock’s mis­cued low cross sneaked in at the back post, the goal al­lowed to stand after an­other VAR check.

Spurs man­ager Po­chet­tino said: “It was an even game, dif­fi­cult for us – they are a very good, or­gan­ised team, it was dif­fi­cult to play in the first half, sec­ond half we were bet­ter. Over­all, it’s a fair re­sult.”

Goals from Tom Davies and Richarli­son gave Ever­ton their first away win of the sea­son at Southamp­ton and eased the pres­sure on man­ager Marco Silva.

The vis­i­tors took the lead in the fourth minute when the un­marked Davies headed in a cor­ner kick for his first goal since May 2018 – which also came against the Saints.

With 15 min­utes to go, Djib­ril Sidibe sent in a pin-point cross to the far post where Richarli­son made it 2-1 with a left-footed first-time fin­ish.

Silva said: “We de­served the three points. We were the best team on the pitch. The first half was re­ally good but we should kill the game.”

Goals from DeAn­dre Yedlin and Ciaran Clarke helped New­cas­tle United re­cover from a goal down to beat Bournemout­h 2-1 at St James’s Park.

Harry Wil­son put the vis­i­tors ahead with a fine fin­ish after a well worked cor­ner 14 min­utes in.

New­cas­tle full-back Yedlin headed home an equaliser in the 42nd minute, while Clarke scuffed home a win­ner just after the break.

Mag­pies man­ager Steve Bruce said: “The team showed a great spirit after the first twenty min­utes when Bournemout­h caused us a lot of prob­lems. But after that, we had to dig in and we cre­ated enough chances to win to a much health­ier mar­gin. The longer the game went on, we just needed to take more chances.”
