This Spurs talent still has a lot to learn

It has been one hell of a month for young Juan Foyth.

He started a match in the cup against West Ham and earned man of the match.

He then played against Wolves in his Premier League debut, giving away two penalties but winning the game.

Next up was another man of the match performance against Crystal Palace, with the match winning goal to boot.

These performances earned him his second Argentina call up, and his senior full debut for his nation, where he scooped yet another man of the match award.

And now Foyth was an integral part of the Tottenham side that battered Chelsea at Wembley yesterday.

Confident on the ball, sensible in his play, and quick across the ground, Foyth looks like a superb talent at just 20-years-old, and improves with every passing game.

However, there all still little moments of naivety in his game as he works his way through the Premier League learning curve.

Foyth clumsily brought down Hazard in the penalty area at 1-0 yesterday, which, if given, could have completely flipped the tie on its head.

These kinds of mistakes are always going to come from a centre back so young and so early in his career, and they are pivotal to him improving as a player.

What is key is making these mistakes in games we win, rather than costing his side and denting his confidence.

Hopefully Poch continues to give the youngster game time even though Vertonghen has now returned to training.

Really an amazing prospect for the future at Spurs.
