Debate: Who should be Tottenham’s top keeper? Have your vote


Tottenham just about inched past Watford in the Carabao Cup last night, but needed pens to do so.

Paulo Gazzaniga made it three wins in three games for him in a Spurs shirt, picking up three man of the match awards along the way.

The young goalkeeper outdid himself last night, pulling off two strong saves down to his right hand corner to win the shootout for Spurs, and to secure their position in the fourth round of the cup.

Gazzaniga made some solid routine saves throughout the 90 minutes, but saved his best for the shootout.

This string of performances from the young man is sure to spark debate over the shot-stopper pecking order at Tottenham, with World Cup winner Hugo Lloris and Dutchman Michel Vorm both out injured at the moment.

Vorm has come under some criticism recently, after less than convincing displays against the likes of Liverpool, where his mistakes directly led to multiple goals for the visitors.

Michel Vorm is also now at the ripe old age of 34, a full 8 years older than Gazzaniga (26).

Hugo Lloris is still the club captain, and likely to regain his starting spot once he returns from injury, but is it about time for Gazzaniga to be next in line, and how long is it before he challenges for the number 1 jersey?
