Son Heung-min was left fuming after a reporter told him about Tottenham’s new unwanted record.
On Thursday West Ham staged a stunning second-half comeback to inflict a third successive home defeat on Tottenham.
Despite taking an early lead courtesy of Christian Romero, Jarrod Bowen and James Ward-Prowse each netted a second-half goal to see West Ham claim a 2-1 win.
The result means the Hammers stay in ninth place, just three points adrift of Tottenham in fifth.
After the game, a reporter told Tottenham star Son a damning statistic – it’s the first time a Premier League side has led 1-0 in five matches in a row and not won a single game.
Visibly devastated, Son responded: “Yeah that is unacceptable.”
Spurs have drawn one and lost four of those aforementioned five games.
Nevertheless, Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou insisted he will not compromise on his attacking style of play.
That’s the game we’re in. There’s only one way to change the circumstance and that is to show conviction in ourselves as a team.
“Sometimes we can disguise where we’re going because we can play some nice stuff. But I want to win. That is the message and that is why I came to the club.
“Days like today give us further evidence and fuel for what we need to do.
“I was disappointed in the manner we accepted our fate [in the first half], in the sense that we thought ‘we’re winning 1-0, we’re playing well, the result will take care of itself’.
“We’re going through a spell of playing good football, but ultimately that’s not what it’s about. It’s not about putting on a show.”
Next up for Tottenham is a home encounter against Newcastle in the Premier League, before a trip to the ailing Nottingham Forest.
