We let a two-goal lead slip and end up drawing

The first PL game after the World Cup break and we are at home to Spurs. We have a very good first half and are definitely the better team and go in at half-time leading 1-0 after a good move sees Janelt score in the 15th minute. This season Spurs have played very badly in the first half but then been excellent in the second half, so I was fearing the worst until Toney got our second in the 54th minute. I was feeling slightly confident until Spurs increased the tempo and our midfield became non-existent. Then it was only a matter of time until Spurs scored and it was 'pigeon killer' Kane who scored with a good header in the 65th minute. We continued to play the same way so no surprise a completely unmarked Højbjerg equalised in the 71th minute. We hang on, although Kane headed against the bar in the 84th minute, and end up lucky to get one point. I sort of blame the manager as he should have brought on Dasilva and Wissa immediately we scored our second goal.
