Tottenham fans react angrily to Richard Keys comments about the club

By Amir Mir

Richard Keys has mocked Tottenham after they missed the chance to close the gap on leaders Chelsea on Friday night – and fans on Twitter have destroyed him for his comments.

The former Sky Sports presenter suggested that Spurs are bottlers after they were beaten 1-0 away at West Ham.

That missed opportunity now gives Antonio Conte’s team the chance to be crowned champions if they win their next two matches.

However, the White Hart Lane faithful were not too pleased with Keys following his comments about Spurs.

One fan pointed out that his team have recorded 50 points out of a possible 60, but others only want to focus on their one defeat.

There is no doubt that Tottenham have the smaller budget compared to their rivals, with the likes of Manchester United, City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, all having larger wage bills.

Added to that, two of the following from United, City, Liverpool and Arsenal, will miss out on a Champions League place at the end of the campaign.

At this moment in time, Jose Mourinho’s side will host Arsene Wenger’s team on Sunday afternoon in what will be a crucial fixture.

Nonetheless, Tottenham fans were clearly angry at Keys for his comments as one fan was fuming that he is able to spout such clueless garbage.

Another supporter believes that manager Mauricio Pochettino has built a young team which is on the up.

Overall, fans did no take too kindly to Keys hitting out at Tottenham, who have only lost one league match from their last ten outings.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
