Former Tottenham Hotspur player Graham Roberts believes that the players are starting to believe in what Nuno Espirito Santo is doing.
After being appointed in the summer, Espirito Santo got to work on assembling his squad and brought Cristian Romero, Pierluigi Gollini, Bryan Gil, Pape Matar Sarr and Emerson Royal to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
His new team got off to a brilliant start winning their opening three Premier League matches by a single goal to nil, against Manchester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Watford, as well as qualifying for the UEFA Conference League group stages after defeating Pacos Ferreira.
Have you been impressed with Tottenham Hotspur so far this season?
Tottenham then had a blip as they would lose their next three league matches against Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal but they did return to form prior to the international break as they beat Aston Villa and then upon the return of club football, defeated Newcastle also.
Roberts believes that the players are starting to believe in what Espirito Santo is doing, telling This is Futbol: “Nuno would have been working on the training pitch with the players that he’s got and the quality we have with the international players coming back, then they would just sit in there and it’s easy, it comes easy, and I think the bottom line of it is that they’re starting to believe in what Nuno is doing.”
After finishing seventh last season, you would imagine everybody connected with Tottenham will be hoping that the club can put together a good run of form this season and challenge for a place in the top four.
