Tottenham Hotspur have a number of impressive youngsters on their books at the moment, but Juan Foyth is beginning to stand out as a particularly exciting prospect.
The young Argentine has enjoyed somewhat of a breakthrough season under Mauricio Pochettino, having been trusted in 15 games already this campaign.
This is a vast improvement compared to his eight matches last season, as Foyth is beginning to grow in his role at the club.
Weekend Sport have now revealed on Twitter that Foyth is actually leading the way in one particular Premier League stat.
The 21-year-old is particularly confident with his feet, which reflects in the fact that Foyth boasts the greatest number of take-ons for central defenders in the League.
This becomes even more impressive once you realise Foyth played under half the number of games of some other centre-backs.
While many will want Foyth to play smart rather than trying to beat players at the back, it is a mark of both his talent and confidence.
Most take-ons completed per position in the 2018/19 #PL season… ?

Spurs Web Opinion:
I am not convinced that Foyth’s future lies in the centre-back position, as I have been more impressed with him at right-back. I believe the Argentine could also do a job as a central midfielder, if given the chance.
