Nuno Espirito Santo has played down any suggestion his side Tottenham Hotspur might have tried their luck following their penalty shootout win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Tottenham needed punctual kicks to make their way past Wolves despite a 2-0 first-half lead, only to then be caught twice at Molineux.
Nuno revealed that his players had practiced on penalties before the Carabao Cup third round and reserved a mention for Pierluigi Gollini, who returned to the starting XI in place of Hugo Lloris and saved the Dendoncker’s efforts to help influence the course of fire. outside.
Harry Kane, Sergio Reguilon and Bryan Gil all sent in their penalties, while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had the chance to score the winning kick, only to see his tame effort saved.
The Spurs boss will take his side for Burnley in the next round and has admitted they will prepare the same way again.
“Penalties are bad luck. We practiced them and we did very well.
