    They sat back and let us have the ball and hoped they'd get a 1-1 draw.
    They were terrible.

    Agreed! Is it only me who thinks Dembele had a good game today?

    Some positives - slightly better home performance with some decent midfield passing. Stombouli and Dembele showing they can be good players for us. Even with the middle two changing we seem a more settled side now.

    I thought the full backs could have done more in the final third - instead of cross, dummy the cross, and cut back. Then move the ball or pass to a midfield runner (another missing element) into that area around the edge of the box. You see chelsea do it all the time. Work the ball wide in the final third, a sprinting runner from midfield along the line of the box takes a pass - and from there they can pass across goal, shoot etc. We were too obvious, the full backs need to be trickier and we need better movement from deep.

    But all in all a decent performance. Eriken is golden. He doesn't need much space or lots of opportunities. Even with Kane on song, Eriksen is still out most important player. One is 21, the other 22!

    Still think mason will. Kane has proved me wrong.

    Ding quite know what that's got to do with how much of a weak link rose was in our team yesterday though.

    Stambouli was my MOM followed by Eriksen.

    Rose, Vertonghen, Lloris were very good, thought Stambouli had a good 2nd half, him and Dembele seemed to be less on top of each other as the game went on. Lack of width/pace/urgency at times was frustrating, but then Sunderland just stuck men behind the ball (their time wasting antics were also at another level, similar to that of Fat Sam's Bolton)

    Re: Ratings v Sunderland

    Excellent summary.

    Thought both Soldado and Ade didn't offer any great spearhead/threat. Still think we need to strengthen in this position before the end of the window.

    My old gripe of our ineffectiveness at corners has returned. Mostly due to poor delivery by Eriksen. But as he more often than not can't beat the first man, why oh why don't we have someone in front of that first man to flick it on? Beats me.

    Oh and special mention to Stabouli. Had his best game for Spurs IMO .

    Beats me too. We scored directly from a corner against Burnley when Paulinho looped a cross to the far post for Chiricheese to bundle it in so why on earth doesn't Poch get Eriksen - or anybody come to that - to try the same?
