Wayne Rooney had a passing success rate of just 50% and only 3 successful passes going forwards in the opposition’s half.
Darren Fletcher (80%) and Michael Carrick (82%) had surprisingly high passing completion rates. Although what caused the worry during the game was that 45% of the unsuccessful passes came from our own half.
Spurs attempted 116 more passes than us and completed 103 more passes than us. Their success rate was 75% compared to our 71%.
