'Embarrassed' Nuno has 'real problems at Tottenham' after what pundit has just spotted

Nuno Espirito Santo has “real problems at Tottenham”, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker claimed Spurs’ second-half performance against Chelsea was “embarrassing”.

Tottenham shipped three goals in the final 45 minutes against Chelsea after a solid first-half display.

Nuno’s side are now winless in their last three games across all competitions after winning their opening three Premier League games of the season.

“For me, they did very well in the first half against Chelsea, they were energetic getting to the ball,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“But there’s 90 minutes in a football match, not 45. As much as you can come out and give that energy when you’ve got the crowd on side, you’ve got to do it for 90 minutes.

“The second half was like a totally different team who were tired. There was a lack of ideas, lack of energy, lack of will to win.

“It was like a training game. What summed it up was when Mateo Kovacic gave the ball to Romelu Lukaku, he gave it back, he put his foot on the ball right next to the keeper and had a shot. It was like something you do in a five-a-side when you’re having a bit of fun.

“It was like a fun day out for Chelsea in that second half and that’s embarrassing for Spurs in front of their home fans.

“They’ve got real problems there at Spurs.”
