Hazard delivers his verdict after Tottenham suffer defeat
By Amir Mir
Micky Hazard believes that Tottenham didn’t create enough chances during their 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s first half strike earned Jose Mourinho’s side a deserved three points against their top four rivals in a cagey encounter.
Spurs dominated possession with 60% of the ball, but Mauricio Pochettino’s men failed to create many clear-cut chances during the match.
Defensive-midfielder Victor Wanyama should have levelled the scores in the second half, but his header from six yards out was horribly nodded wide.
After the match former Tottenham player Hazard provided his verdict on the match as he posted this message on his personal Twitter account.

The defeat at Old Trafford means Tottenham remain fifth in the Premier League table on 27 points from 15 games.
They are three points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, while Mourinho’s United, who are sixth, have closed the gap on the north London club to just three points.
Pochettino’s side have now suffered two defeats in three league games, having previously gone unbeaten in their first 12 league encounters.
Now, they will be looking to get back to winning ways when they take on relegation strugglers Hull City at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.
Spurs will then host another newly-promoted side in Burnley, who visit the capital this Sunday.
