Is he too good for us?
he deserved a couple of assists, inch perfect through balls, but was let down by the finishingsome decent moments on the ball but was too easily beaten for the first goal and very poor in dealing with the 2nd.
Yeah and Son missed quite a bit. Ndombele too had a chance. MarginsFinally got around to watching the game. I can’t remember the last player we had capable of playing those types of through balls that he played in the opening 30.
Eriksen for all the good that he does is more of a metronome. VDV operated a bit more in the final third. Modric was very good at those although more so in terms of opening play - Kane is also very good st this surprisingly.
But in terms of laying it on a platter. Those were breathtaking gasping passes.
Apparently he nearly didn’t make it as a pro due to his conditioning / weight. He’s one of those players who will balloon once he stops playing. I don’t think we’ll see the best of him for quite some time, maybe even next season.Brilliant going forwward,the complete opposite when it comes to defending, not sure whether its lack of understanding, laziness or sheer lack of fitness. Its a personal shambles for a footballer at this level to be so unfit at this stage of the season, he must have showed up at Spurs in pretty poor nick, very unprofessional.
Youtube highlight 'footballer' written all over him at the moment.Thought his work rate off the ball was shocking. In terms of chasing and closing down, looked like he was there for a half hearted kick about at the park. On the ball, clear the guy has ability but can't get away with the lack of work rate off it.
