Dignified in defeat is perhaps the best way to describe Tottenham’s performance in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday, as they eventually succumbed to the ruthless winning mentality of London rivals Chelsea.
That may sound a little patronising but there’s no question the Lilywhites produced a convincing enough performance at Wembley; they could easily be on the more flattering end of the six-goal thriller and preparing for an FA Cup final with bitter foes Arsenal if fate had pushed the pendulum of momentum slightly further Tottenham’s way after Dele Alli’s equaliser.
Overall, Spurs fans have every right to be pleased with their side’s efforts on Saturday and take positives from the performance as they look towards the future – one that looks incredibly bright at White Hart Lane should the club hold onto manager Mauricio Pochettino and all of his in-demand key players.
But someone must take Tottenham’s Man of the Match award from the weekend, so who produced the best display against the Premier League’s leaders? Was it one of the goalscorers – Alli and Harry Kane – or does someone else deserve the award? Let us know by voting below!
