Emmanuel Adebayor has called on his Tottenham side to be more ruthless in front of goal following the frustrating draw with Sunderland at the weekend, according to Sky
Spurs twice surrendered the lead at the Stadium of Light to draw 2-2 with the Black Cats – albeit a late and unfortunate own goal by substitute Harry Kane ensuring a share of the points.
The visitors however had a host of chances to put the game to bed, twice striking the woodwork on a frustrating day in the North East.
Tottenham dominated proceedings and their striker believes they need to become more clinical if they are to challenge for a Champions League place this season.
Adebayor said: “It was worrying not to win.
“If it happens a lot it is a worry.
“The most frustrating thing was that we weren’t rewarded for our performance. If you play badly and draw then it is quite good, as I am sure Sunderland’s players will tell you.
“Their manager won’t be able to believe they came away with a point. We’ve got to finish teams off when we’ve got them on the ropes.
“We didn’t do that here. That’s difficult to take after dominating the game.”
Tottenham had made an impressive start to life under Mauricio Pochettino – overcoming West Ham in a tough opening London derby before swiftly dispatching Queens Park Rangers 4-0.
However after 3-0 home loss to Liverpool despite enjoying the lion’s share of possession, the Togolese striker has admitted the 2-2 result was hard to take.
