Wenham can't believe Tottenham fans are 'blaming' duo for team's struggles amid 'huge' claim

Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are not to blame for the lack of creativity as Tottenham failed to register a shot on target against Everton.

That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

As per WhoScored, Tottenham failed to register a shot on target as they drew 0-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Opta also claim this is the first time Spurs have failed to have a shot on target in consecutive league games since records began in 2003.

Wenham admits he is shocked to see some fans blaming Skipp and Hojberg, who were playing holding midfield, for a lack of creativity from the Spurs attackers.

“Some fans are saying the lack of creativity comes from Skipp and Hojbjerg,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“I’m sorry, that’s wrong. We saw what Conte did at Chelsea. He had Matic and Kante playing every game as holding midfielders.

“They creativity has to come from the wide full-backs and the attackers.

“Unfortunately that hasn’t quite clicked for us yet. It’s only two games in so that is not a huge concern for me.

“I just don’t think Skipp or Hojbjerg can be blamed for our attackers not creating chances.

“It’s been a problem all season and they weren’t to blame before, they certainly aren’t now.”

Tottenham go into the international break ninth in the Premier League table.

They welcome Leeds to North London after the break though Skipp will miss that game after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Everton.
