Tottenham Hotspur saw off rivals West Ham United in style this evening, marking their second win at the Olympic stadium in as many weeks.
Goals from Heung Min Son and a third from Fernando Llorente booked Spurs’ place in the quarter finals.
They will now play Arsenal at the Emirates for a place in the semis.
One man who did a whole lot to help them get this far was young Juan Foyth, who started his first game in while for Spurs.
Partnering Davinson Sanchez, Foyth didn’t look out of place for a second.
He was comfortable running towards goal, bringing the ball out into midfield at his feet, passing it out, and getting stuck in when needed.
Kyle Walker-Peters had somewhat of a horror show to Foyth’s right hand side, and if it wasn’t for the Argentine, West Ham would likely have capitalised on a number of occasions
Foyth came in with multiple last ditch sliding tackles, interceptions, blocks, clearances, and even a clever boot over his own crossbar.
You can see why Argentina and Pochettino both rate this kid so highly, and it would be great to see him get some more game time this season in the Premier League.
With Jan Vertonghen out for the long term, he could be the perfect replacement at the back.
