Opinion: The three players who performed well for Spurs despite the result

Tottenham Hotspur were disappointing all across the pitch today against Sheffield United, but there were a few shining lights in the North London rain.

Here are the three players who should perhaps feel let down after their individual performances against Sheffield.

Tanguy Ndombele –

A real shame that Ndombele came off at halftime as I thought he was Tottenham’s brightest midfield player in the first half. He is constantly collecting the ball and looking to move it on in one or two touches. Failing that, he will drive into space on his own. It very rarely goes backwards and he very rarely seems to give the ball away. Let’s hope he is okay!

Giovani Lo Celso –

One of the only Spurs players who looked to be able to thread a pass through that Sheffield defence. I would argue that he is wasted a little out wide and seems to do his best work when he comes in a little more central. On another day, if the Spurs forwards were more clinical, he may have racked up a couple of assist/goals created.

Davinson Sanchez –

While he looked shakey to start with and gave the ball away a few times, Sanchez was essentially defending for two out there today. He continuously covered Eric Dier’s defensive shortcomings, while also attempting to mark his own man. I think if Spurs bring in a class centre-back to partner this lad, he could grow into something special.
