Tottenham have been unlucky with the number of injuries they have been hit with this season.
Spurs have had several key players ruled out during important spells of the campaign but have somehow still managed to stay in touch with the top two in the Premier League and progressed from a tough group in the Champions League.
With Ben Davies currently sidelined with a groin problem, it has allowed Danny Rose to show his form of old.
The left-back has had a tough couple of years, where he has suffered multiple injury problems which has limited his ability to build up any consistency.
Rose is now getting a consistent run of games under his belt for the first time since the 2016/17 season and the 28-year-old looks back to his old self. He seems to have regained his aggression while defending and is proving a constant threat down the Spurs left flank.
According to The Telegraph, Rose has accounted for 12 percent of the chances Tottenham’s players have created since their defeat to Manchester United at home.
In the same time, the full-back has also completed more dribbles than any other Spurs player apart from Heung-min Son.
Arguably, the most impressive stat is the fact that the last time any Premier League player dribbled past Rose was eight appearances ago vs Southampton in early December.
These stats certainly prove that Rose is well and truly back to his best. With Ben Davies’ injury and Spurs resuming their Champions League campaign tomorrow evening, Rose’s upturn in form couldn’t have come at a better time for Tottenham.
