MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThe keeper kicked the ball 80 yards, it was flicked on and Jermain Defoe is in on goal. Itโ€™s great for Spurs but debilitating for us. โ€œThe squad has been a bit weak. I knew that in August and we were unable to do anything about it at that stage. โ€œIn January weโ€™ll try to do something to give these players a bit of help.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
