Opinion: Five Spurs players who did the team proud against RB Leipzig

Tottenham Hotspur may have lost their first round of sixteen Champions League leg against RB Leipzig last night, but that isn’t to say that some Lilywhites didn’t impress.

Let’s take a look at the five players who caught our eye and did the team proud:

Hugo Lloris –

Starting from the back, Hugo made some crucial saves to keep the game respectable last night. Tipping an early shot onto the post, saving a point-blanc Werner strike, and denying Schick in the second half all stood out as his top moments. A great game from the Frenchman.

Davinson Sanchez – 

One of the contenders for man of the match. Sanchez not only did his own job superbly, but he essentially defended for Serge Aurier all night too. He used his strength, pace, quality on the ball, and aerial prowess to shut down numerous opportunities for the away side.

Harry Winks – 

A really accomplished performance from Winks in the centre of midfield. Not only did he throw himself into challenges and in front of shots all game, but he also grew into possession and was extremely positive with his passing and drives in the final half-hour.

Giovani Lo Celso – 

Man of the match for me. Lo Celso dictated everything that was good about Spurs’ play, as well as having their closest chance when he hit the post from a free-kick. Looks to be growing into his role in North London and what a player Tottenham have on their hands.

Lucas Moura – 

It is not an easy job that Moura is being asked to do. Play out of position as a striker every single game, often playing 90 minutes, and running his socks off every time. His link-up play, dribbling, and aerial game was sensational today. Unfortunately, he was given little in the way of clear chances to score.

Honourable mentions – 

Gedson Fernandes

Tanguy Ndombele

Erik Lamela
