Tottenham’s defensive woes worsened on Wednesday in the dour 1-0 loss to Burnley.
Cristian Romero’s inability to deal with Ben Mee’s towering header showed the defensive frailties and leadership Tottenham lack.

Chelsea would likely replace him with Jules Kounde of Sevilla, with the Frenchman’s release clause coming into play in the summer.
