Analysis of the goal conceded against Anzhi Makhachkala (12/12)
Ewerton’s goal – Burmistrov’s corner goes all the way across the six-yard box, and is prodded home by Ewerton.
Burmistrov’s corner is flat and hard, but is into the six-yard box. For me, Lloris would be coming to get rid of this. Instead, Friedel is rooted to his line.
Having said that, Naughton has to get across his man and clear this. He makes no attempt to clear the ball, and Ewerton muscles his way in front of him to prod it home, almost with his studs.
As an aside, you’ll know I’m not a fan of advertising. However, a big shout out to the makers of this Spurs Onesie, who kindly sent me one after I tweeted about it. A great last minute Christmas present?!
