Some Spurs fans were left impressed with Gedson Fernandes’ performance in the 3-2 win over Southampton the FA Cup fourth-round replay on Wednesday.

The midfielder came on a second-half substitute replacing Jan Vertonghen with over half an hour of normal time left to play.

He linked up impressively with the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Winks played a key part in the move which led to Heung-min Son’s penalty.

The 21-year-old has been used sparingly by Jose Mourinho since joining the club last month on an 18-month loan deal from Benfica.

His only start for the club came in the first FA Cup tie against Southampton at St Mary’s last month and some Spurs fans were not impressed with the Portuguese international on that afternoon.

He also caught the eye with an impressive piece of skill shortly after coming onto the field of play on Wednesday.

However, many felt that he was much more influential and tidy against the Saints in the replay under the lights in midweek. Here’s how some fans reacted to the midfielder’s showing:

It is still early days for Gedson at the club and it is not fair to judge him until he’s had a few months to settle into the Premier League. While he has already shown glimpses of his quality, I believe we will only start to see the best of him next season after he’s had a preseason with the side under his belt.
