After suffering a midweek defeat against Barcelona in the Champions League, Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to bounce back tomorrow afternoon against Cardiff City.
Indeed, it’s an enticing looking fixture for Tottenham to head into with a growing injury list to consider but, as they say, there are no easy games in football.
Mauricio Pochettino simply cannot allow any complacency to slip into his players minds ahead of the clash, as it’s vital that they build some momentum before the international break.
Ahead of the fixture, Tottenham were busy trying to build some hype on social media as they posted a clip of Roberto Soldado’s strike from the last time they hosted the Bluebirds.
Soldado’s first-half strike proved to be the only goal of the game as Tottenham recorded a 1-0 victory at White Hart Lane, and it also represented just the third time he scored from open play for the Lilywhites (as per Whoscored).
Despite that undesirable statistic, the Spurs supporters on Twitter have been singing his praises and expressing their disappointment that things never quite worked out for the Spaniard.
He managed to score just 16 goals in his Tottenham career, but it seems he remains a popular figure in north London regardless of his failure to live up to expectation following his big-money switch from Valencia.
Here’s what some Tottenham fans have had to say about Soldado on Twitter…
Him and Llorente are so similar, both can’t score. But Bobby gave 110% every game and that’s why we loved him
