Tottenham Hotspur completed a successful comeback as they beat Leeds United 4-3. An emotional rollercoaster for all fans involved ended in euphoria for the home ones, but heartbreak for the travelling Leeds supporters. Leeds dominated and grabbed the lead multiple times, but failed to secure it.
Spurs’ Win and Leeds’ Heartbreak:
Two late goals from Rodrigo Bentancur secured a victory for Spurs in the final ten minutes of the match, as Leeds threw away the lead on three separate occasions at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
“I’m gutted, I feel like someone has ripped my heart out,” Marsch said. “I thought we had control of the match but then we let it slip. There’s obviously positives in there because in our good moments we look like we have quality, but in our bad we still look vulnerable and naive.”
“First-half we were tactically sound but we’re not doing what we need to do in close spaces together. We defended hard and our challenge is to stay concentrated. We get leads and then we give it away immediately because we don’t stick to our principle. If we can then we can be a good team.”
Conte’s Spurs secured a huge win as they needed to grab the 3 points amid a series of losses. The win gives them a massive boost right before the World Cup break.
