Glenn Hoddle believes Nuno Espirito Santo looked like a man ‘under pressure’ after the Tottenham boss frosty pre-game interview with BT Sport.

Spurs have lost their last three Premier League games with the latest defeat coming to north London rivals Arsenal last weekend.

The Portuguese gave short answers to questions about why Harry Kane and Son Heung-min were not starting. 

He also seemed unimpressed by Brazier’s suggestion players could play their way into the team for the game against Aston Villa this weekend and ‘atone for a miserable week’.

‘The Villa game doesn’t have anything to do with this game,’ Nuno said. ‘It’s totally different games, we have to focus on this one.’ 

Hoddle said it was not a positive interview from the Tottenham manager ahead of tonight’s UEFA Conference League game with Mura

Spurs have lost their last three Premier League games but took an early lead through Dele Alli 

Hoddle picked up on the manager’s mood and said he looked under pressure ahead of tonight’s game.

‘I’ve got to say in that interview, that’s the first time I’ve seen that, Jeff was having a hard time getting anything out of them, he was batting it straight back,’ Hoddle told BT Sport.

‘He did look a little bit under pressure to me. There wasn’t a smile there, nothing like “we’re nice and relaxed, looking forward to the game, I think we’ve got a good enough team to go and win.” 

‘It wasn’t really a positive interview. It’s a strange one.’

An early penalty from Dele Alli and a sweet strike from Giovani Lo Celso has put Tottenham 2-0 ahead in the first half.
