Opinion: Five Spurs players who were absolute class against Man City

Tottenham Hotspur registered back to back home wins in the Premier League this afternoon after they defeated Man City 2-0 in North London.

Spurs were camped in their own half for the first half but really came alive in the second 45, particularly after Zinchenko’s red card.

Let’s take a look at the players who really stood out against the current Premier League champions.

Steven Bergwijn 

Rather quiet on his debut but worth a mention for that goal alone. What a strike from the Dutch winger! He also put a big shift in infront of the home fans. Not surprised he pulled up with cramp.

Hugo Lloris 

A penalty save. Constant commanding clearances and catches in the air. Quick off his line when needed. A strong voice at the back. Captain fantastic!

Harry Winks 

Winksy was a perfect shield in front of the back four today. Time and time again he managed to track the runs from deep from the likes of De Bruyne and came up with vital tackles. Not only this, but his powerful burst forward invited the red card which arguably won Spurs the game.

Japhet Tanganga 

A brick wall at the back. For a recent academy graduate playing on his weak foot and out of position, Tananga was unbeatable. He looks a real defender this boy. Spurs need to get a new left-back and build a defence around Tanganga.

Giovani Lo Celso 

Pulled the strings in the second half against Man City, especially when the game opened up. However, he also loves to run around and make tackles for the team. A top club needs players who will happily run through a brick wall for the result, and Gio is one of them.

Honourable mentions 

To be honest, I could have also made a case for Toby Alderweireld and Lucas Moura, and Ndombele was great after coming on.
