Tottenham Hotspur fans are enjoying a derby-winning weekend after defeating Arsenal 1-0 in the English Premier League at Wembley on Saturday.
Outside of the fact it was a North London Derby, it was a crucial match for Mauricio Pochettino’s side in their quest to finish in the top four again this season and qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
The win means that they move up into third position on 52 points having played an extra game than Liverpool and Chelsea below them.
Harry Kane was the predictable goal hero on the day, netting a second half header to score his 32nd goal of the season so far.
While he grabs the headlines, it was another Spurs player that impressed supporters most – midfielder Mousa Dembele.
The Belgian international was in imperious form in the heart of the Tottenham midfield, producing the kind of performance that made him a fan favourite during his peak at the club.
Fans believe he is back to his best and have hailed him as the reason they’ve seen an upturn in form of late.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the 30-year-old…

I thought we had see the best of Dembele but he’s been unbelievable in the last few games. #THFC

Thought Dembele was OUTSTANDING — best I’ve ever seen him. Trippier 2nd half performance was also the best I’ve see from him. Did anyone run more than Erikson? We were brilliant all over the pitch. #TOTARS #COYS

Dembele man of the match by a mile today. Was fantastic. Best performance in a Spurs shirt. Jan was brilliant as well. So solid this season #COYS

A lot of us, very much me included, need to eat a big slice of humble pie regarding Mousa Dembele. Thought his legs had gone, but seems there is life in them yet. Has been brilliant the last few weeks. Masterful. #COYS
