...deserved. Spurs played Leicester for the third time in a week and a half in their third round F.A. Cup replay and they finally got the win their play deserved over the previous games.
...the man of the match? Spurs were going through their usual routine against a non-footballing flat back nine, that is struggling, until Big Sam played the master tactician.
...now. Spurs third game against Leicester this season broke the string of draws, well two draws, as the visitors came out victorious and Spurs have to look to restart again.
...three. Spurs' two two draw with Leicester in the third round of the F.A. Cup means the teams will now face each other three times in a week and a half.
...if there was any daylight. In the murky Scouse New Year a Spurs side that is looking increasingly tired left Goodison with a point that almost felt like a defeat, certainly yet more points dropped.
...hope. Two banana skins over Chrimbo one easily handled the other rescued in the final seconds, leaving Spurs in the top four with bizarrely the best defence and goal difference half way through the league.
...Southampton. Both teams in Spurs' Premier League visit to Southampton probably looked at it being the best time to play the other, it looked like Southampton were right, until they were wrong.
...Coco. As the final Europa League group game came into town, Pochettino finally gave some of the regulars a day off, while the kids ran rings around Monaco to secure top spot.
...a relegation battle shutting up shop. The weekend fixture against Premier League strugglers Chelsea should that Spurs will have to deal with more little teams coming to The Lane trying to grab a point.
...in the bin. With Spurs' unbeaten run in the league and West Ham turning over big teams on their travels this had Spursy banana skin written all over it, but the little team were put in their place.
...kid. After a man of the match performance against France for England to follow up the one against Woolwich, Dele Alli will have Daniel Levy hearing cash register noises.
...chances. They were there, plenty of them, all chances to put the Woolwich Wanderers away but that killer touch was missing which meant that easy gifted equaliser was only seconds away from happening.
...Spurs can't, is that Spursy of them? In their second attempt to throw away a lead against Anderlecht in the Europa League, Spurs just couldn't do it, instead getting back on track with a 2-1 reversal of the first game score.
...didn't have it's leading man. Unfortunately old Tim didn't seem to be there to see one of his former clubs, Spurs, do over another of his former clubs, Aston Villa, must have been to busy watching gooner DVDs, his beloved club.
...manager? Spurs' Premier League opponents on Saturday, Liverpool, apparently had a new manager why did nobody mention this and why did we never see this mysterious new man in charge?
