Consistency is the word on Cristian Romero’s mind as Tottenham look to build on 2-0 win against West Ham when they host Chelsea on Sunday.
Despite scoring in injury time during the last time out between the two sides, Chelsea have remained unbeaten across their last eight Premier League encounters with Tottenham, taking 20 points from a possible 24 in this fixture and Cuti Romero has called on Spurs teammates to build momentum on Sunday’s victory.
Tottenham made a slow start in the first-half against West Ham, but found their way back with a much-improved performance after the break, in which Emerson Royal and Heung-Min Son hit the target, to help Spurs get back to winning ways in the Premier League and, notably, back into the top four.
However, having endured a mixed bag of league results so far in February – a 1-0 win over Manchester City, followed by a 4-1 defeat to Leicester before the triumph over the Hammers – if we are to keep our position in the league table, we will need to find consistency, Romero said.
“we need to focus on ourselves. After a big win against Manchester City, we dropped off against Leicester City,” the Argentina international said following the victory over the Irons.
“IF WE CAN KEEP WINNING AND PERFORMING AS WE DID AGAINST WEST HAM,WE CAN CALL ON THAT IN DIFFICULT MATCHES. IT’S ALL DOWN TO US” – Romero
Tottenham welcome Chelsea to Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Sunday in an ever-fiercely contested clash between the two sides and Cristian knows every player will have to play their part as we continue to fight in three competitions.
So, given the run ahead, the loss of Rodrigo Bentancur to injury was, of course, a huge blow to the squad and was one that was felt strongly by Cuti given their close friendship.
“We all miss him a lot. It’s a big loss for the time being but we know the player that he is,” said the 24-year-old.
“Right now, it’s hard, but we’re looking forward to having him back and contributing for us again. We need to prepare well going forward but, in the meantime, we wish him a speedy recovery and that he’s back soon.”
