Neil Warnock is the first to admit he is not often lost for words but after watching his side come away with only a point at Tottenham, he was left wondering how they didn't return to south London with all three points.
"I am really lost to explain how we didn't win the game, we have improved over recent weeks, that is probably the most complete performance since I have come back to the club. Against Liverpool we scored the goals but today, I could tell in the dressing room that we were focused and knew what we were doing. We wanted to attack them, the game was there to be won today and we started on a positive note."
"The goalkeeper has made some fantastic saves, you have got to take your hat off to him, I thought his performance was just fantastic,”
Some sections of the media post match were ready to name their man of the match but Neil thought there were many heroes out there for his side.
“People talk about Bolasie doing well but Wilfried is getting better as well. I thought the back four were super, the midfield three were unbelievable and then Chamakh was my man of the match.
“We believe we have a decent team. We have felt sorry for ourselves sometimes this season but we have to make our own luck, it’s down to us to get the points and not worry about decisions and positions, and we played some quality stuff today.”
"So it is frustrating to be talking about only a point but we have just got to believe in ourselves and the lads do. I can’t ask for any more, the shift they put in today was amazing. Julian had one shot from Eriksen’s free-kick and I can’t remember another that bothered him.”
Neil has total belief in his squad and can call on other performances where his players may have come back from games with more than they did.
"It is a good dressing room with a good group and a number of leaders which is important. I think we have done well, We went to Swansea and upset them, we have a capable group. If we had taken our chances at Old Trafford we may have upset Manchester United as well.
"It is about trying to be the best with what we have got. They are a great group, the skipper is a leader and together we don't suffer fools gladly."
