Keeper was the key

Posted on 4 November 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Glenn Hoddle pointed to the performance of goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini as a key factor in us not taking the full three points against Chelsea on Sunday.

The Italian made several outstanding saves to deny Spurs the win that Glenn and and a full house at the Lane felt we deserved. The 29-year-old produced stunning tip overs from Jamie Redknapp and Teddy Sheringham, while also blocking a Gus Poyet effort from roughly six yards out.

The boss also rued the lack of reward from a 20 minute spell of dominance at the beginning of the second half. The rain came and signalled an onslaught on the Chelsea goal, but the boys could not find a way past the in-form keeper.

"There were two key points really," reflected Glenn. "One, we had a real purple patch in the second half and just couldn't get that elusive goal. The second was the performance of their goalkeeper.

"He was wonderful - for them...

"We started a bit slow, but the momentum of our performance got better and better and I felt we should have won the game."
