It has been a dream start to Tanguy Ndombele’s Tottenham career, with the Frenchman already racking up two goal involvements in as many games for the North London side.
A goal in his debut against Aston Villa that drew Spurs level at 1-1 was then added to by an assist against Man City that also levelled the match up at 1-1.
Ndombele was able to get a full pre-season under his belt with Tottenham and his new manager, Mauricio Pochettino, which may be a big factor in this early form.
While his performances have been a long way from the highlight reels of his Lyon days, the central midfielder certainly looks like he is made for the Premier League.
However, pundit Danny Murphy believes that the Frenchman is being played out of position as he should be used as a more attacking threat.
He accused Ndombele of not picking up his man and protecting the back four at times against Man City.
Where do you think Ndombele should play?
Murphy said (BBC Match of the Day – 17-08-19 at 10:20pm): “Ndombele is playing central midfield in a two, maybe it’s not his best position. Maybe he’s more attacking. Protect your back four, but no.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
I think Ndombele is adaptable. In a two-man midfield, I think he should be dropping back deeper, but in a three-man with Winks and Sissoko he should push a little further forward than the other two.
