Analysis of the goal conceded against Sunderland (29/12)

O’Shea’s goalAfter Walker needlessly gives away a free kick, Spurs fail to clear Larsson’s delivery. Lloris saves well from Fletcher, but the ball falls kindly to O’Shea, who side-foots home when unmarked.


Walker gives away the ball and, in trying to make amends he gives away a needless free kick by getting far too tight to Sessegnon.┬áLarsson’s free kick is excellent, as we’ve come to expect from him. Fletcher attempts to flick the ball on, but misses and it hits Dawson.


Fletcher reacts, and gets a shot away, which Lloris steams out to parry from close range.


O’Shea is unmarked on the edge of the six-yard box, with Caulker and Dawson both attempting to clear the ball, and Adebayor and Bale ball-watching. The ball runs kindly for him to side-foot into an unguarded net.
