In the early hours of this morning, Mourinho's Tottenham beat the North Macedonian team Skendia 3-1 in the Europa League qualifiers, and scored a winning streak in the Devil's schedule. But Tottenham still has a hidden worry, that is, it is extremely dependent on "offensive dual-core."
How cruel is Tottenham's schedule? From September 13 (local time, the same below) against Everton to October 3 at Manchester United, they need to play 9 games in 20 days, very scary. Had it not been for the widespread infection of the Leyton Orient team with the new crown virus and the failure to play the third round of the League Cup, then Tottenham’s match against Skendia would definitely have a larger rotation this morning.
More importantly, although Mourinho's team has won a winning streak and scored 8 goals in the last 2 games, the offensive points are very concentrated: Sun Xingmin has 5 goals and 3 assists, and Kane has 2 goals and 4 assists.
This morning’s game was very obvious. Sun Xingmin performed well and took the lead in assisting Lamela to score, but after the opponents subsequently tied the score in the world wave, it was Sun Xingmin and Kane who secured the victory for Tottenham.
Due to the new crown epidemic, the European League teams have shrunk to varying degrees in summer training preparations. This makes the team not only lack of tactical running-in, but also extremely low physical reserves. This extreme situation is bound to increase the probability of injury. For Tottenham, their schedule is extremely frequent.
Mourinho is trying to rotate, but the bench players lack usable pieces. In short, no one can replace Kane and Sun Xingmin. The return of Bale to the team has made Tottenham fans look forward to it, but he is still in injury, and Reggie also needs more time to adapt to the team. Mourinho can rely on the current lineup.
How to effectively alleviate the fatigue of the team, especially the "Kay Sun" dual-core, has become a top priority for Tottenham.
