Wigan on Saturday.

Andre Villas-Boas’ side went down to a 56th minute Ben Watson goal at White Hart Lane and rarely threatened the Wigan goal.

And Huddlestone has admitted that Spurs must do better at home if they are going to mount a real challenge for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

He told Tottenham’s official website: “We just didn’t turn up. They defended well, but equally we have got to work harder to create options.

“Normally at home we will create three or four chances and stick one or two away, but I don’t think we created a half-decent effort on goal.

“The lads were angry in there. We have seen teams drop points and we could have cemented fourth. At home we fancy ourselves against anybody, we have for a while, but to create so few chances was very disappointing.”

However, the 25-year-old midfielder paid tribute to the way Wigan approached the game and thwarted Spurs’ attacking threat.

“Wigan made it difficult for us,” he admitted.

“They are one of few teams that play three at the back at they utilised it well.”

Tottenham are approaching a testing run of fixtures in the Premier League with games against Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool this month and they host Maribor in in an important Europa League Group J match this Thursday evening.

    A large part of the blame needs to be palced on Huddlestone. Spurs mid field is lost without Dembele. They sit to far back creating a giant gap between midfield and forwards. There is no attacking play through the center of the field. THAT is why Defoe can’t score. Because the mid field play is slow and lacking of any creativity. Dembele can’t get back soon enough so Huddlestone can resume his proper spot…on the bench.
