Davinson Sanchez has urged his Spurs team-mates to carry their Real Madrid momentum into Sunday’s Premier League clash against Liverpool according to an article in The Mail.
The article says we are riding high on the back of a hard-earned draw at the home of the European champions on Tuesday, which extended our unbeaten run to 10 matches in all competitions.
We had won five on the spin before our trip to the Santiago Bernabeu and Sanchez said the lads need to maintain momentum and form, with fixtures against West Ham in the league Cup, Manchester United, the return fixture against Madrid and Arsenal all to follow today’s opponents Liverpool in the next month.
“This game against Liverpool is very special because both teams have big players who can win games,” Sanchez said.
“Facing Liverpool will be hard but we will look to win the game because we have the mentality to keep up the performance from Tuesday.
“The most important thing is our mentality and then it is to hope we can play the next game in the same way we did the last one.
“But we also need to look to the future as after Liverpool we have West Ham, Manchester United and Real Madrid again.”
The Colombian joined us from Ajax in the summer for a club-record £42million fee and the article says the 21-year-old has slotted seamlessly into the team’s back three.
Along with Harry Winks, he was one of our star performers in the Bernabeu, with both men showing maturity well beyond their years.
“We tried to impose our own style of play, and our key players, and the whole team managed to play with a calm and clear head,” Sanchez said.
“At half-time the manager told us to play our football in as calm and cool a manner as possible, and that with all the ability that we have, he said it would be impossible not to impose ourselves on the game.”
The article continues saying question marks remain over our form at Wembley, where we have taken only five points out of a possible 12 so far and are yet to score more than once in a league game this season.
“We’ve tried to pick up as many points as possible at Wembley – unfortunately that hasn’t quite happened for us,” Sanchez said.
“We won there in the Champions League and we won there in the League Cup but we’ve just picked up one win in the league in our new home.
“Sure, it’s important not to drop points in the league and that’s why we are currently battling it out at the top.”
He’s added great quality to an already outstanding back line, he’s exceeded expectations and has a very bright future. The mentality seems to be hugely important to Poch and Sanchez has bought into that. Future captain perhaps? Let us know your thoughts
