Davinson Sanchez has admitted that he is pleased that he only has to come up against the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Gareth Bale in training rather than in matches.
A front-line of Kane, Son and Bale was something Spurs fans have been excited to witness since the Welshman’s return to North London was confirmed last summer.
However, while Son and Kane have combined brilliantly on many occasions this season, even breaking the Premier League record for the most goal combinations in a single campaign (14), Bale’s fitness issues prevented him from being able to start too many league matches.
That has changed over the last few weeks, with the Welshman now seemingly match fit, showing glimpses of the player that Tottenham fans saw during his first spell at the club.
The trio of Kane, Son and Bale have started together in Spurs’ last three Premier League games in a row and look quite a handful to defend against.
When asked if he would fear coming up against Kane, Son and Bale if he was in the opposition, Sanchez told Football.London: “Definitely, it’s happening every day here in training sessions with them.
“They’re just quality and you’ve mentioned those players but I can say that Lucas, Lamela, Bergwijn, Vinicius, all of them can show that quality like the names that you give me right now.
“They’ve been showing that quality in this competition. Of course you have to realise that you are facing Harry, Gareth and Sonny and they are in very good form.
“Not just this season. They have been doing very well and of course last year. You can have not the best period but always football will give you time to bounce back like I say. It’s very obvious that.”

It is not just the quality that Kane, Son and Bale possess but just seeing those three names on the teamsheet starting together will likely serve as a psychological blow to the opposition defence.
With Bale now coming back to his best, the winger will also attract more attention from the opposition which could potentially afford Kane and Son more space in the final third than they have tended to have so far this season.
