Whilst Tottenham fans may have thought their senior squad was going through a crisis after losing three games on the bounce, it looks like it’s the club’s U23 side in the Premier League 2 that is really in crisis. They lost 6-0 to Everton yesterday to make it just one win, two draws and three losses from their six Premier League 2 fixtures and the fans are now calling for Wayne Burnett’s head.
FULL-TIME – A disappointing afternoon for our youngsters. #PL2
— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) 23 September 2018
Burnett has been in charge of the Tottenham Hotspur U23’s since the start of last season and finished 9th out of 12 in first full season with the club’s youngsters. However, this season he’s started poorly and the club sit 10th with just five points on the board. The only respite for The Lilywhites in the Premier League 2 will be that their next game is against winless Blackburn and they’ll be desperate to bounce back from the Everton thumping.
Whilst Everton’s U23s are top of the Premier League 2 table, losing 6-0 is an unacceptable scoreline. The same fixture last season saw The Toffees smash Spurs 4-1 and it seems the gulf in class has only got larger. Burnett’s side has suffered some poor results already this season. Losing 2-1 to Arsenal and 3-1 to West Ham is always going to be painful and the fans are starting to believe that Burnett needs to go.
