Glenn Hoddle believes Tottenham Hotspur striker Roberto Soldado needs support up front rather than playing as the sole striker.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Glenn Hoddle believes that Roberto Soldado needs a striker up front alongside him at Spurs.

Soldado scored in Spurs' League Cup game against Nottingham Forest to give his side the lead, but Hoddle thinks that it was Harry Kane's inclusion that ultimately helped the Spaniard.

"Soldado had a partner with Kane to play with and they played with the two wide men. That helped them tactically," Hoddle told Sky Sports News.

"He was playing down the middle on his own and in the end I think he's stopped making runs.

"As soon as Tottenham went behind their energy lifted, they played much quicker and with urgency – but putting the two up top helped Soldado."

Soldado scored his 13th goal in Tottenham colours last night after making just under 40 appearances for the club.
