Tottenham Hotspur delighted their home supporters on Saturday after a huge derby win against North London rivals Arsenal at Wembley Stadium.
With three points up for grabs in the race for the English Premier League top four, it was a massive match in the context of both clubs’ season and it was Mauricio Pochettino’s side who raised their game to emerge victorious.
Rather predictably, it was Harry Kane who got the vital goal in the 1-0 win, heading superbly in the second half from Ben Davies’ exquisite cross.
Davies has really improved in recent games, emerging as one of Tottenham’s top performers at a critical time of the season and fans who were previously critical of him are now lauding his ability.
The Welsh international is playing with passion and conviction, an attitude supplementing his attacking and defensive abilities.
Supporters took to social media to enthuse about his performance, with some even suggesting he was Spurs’ top performer across the 90 minutes.
These are some of the comments from Twitter…

The delivery of Ben Davies’ cross into Harry Kane, looks better every time you watch it.

Ben Davies deserves so much credit. We've all been guilty of slamming him on here. But he has been outstanding against United, Liverpool and Arsenal in 10 days. What a delivery for Kane's goal #COYS

Davies was on top form again and for me is miles ahead of Rose currently. The cross for Kane’s goal was 👌. Trippier had a good game and currently is playing really well again. Aurier and Rose have a battle on their hands. Great to have good competition in our squad. #COYS

I want to say, that I was wrong.
Completely and utterly wrong.
Ben Davies is everything, EVERYTHING, that I thought he wasn't.
I can't express how fantastic he has been in the last three games.
Ben, I'm sorry.
