Lots of Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to pile the praise on Tanguy Ndombele after the midfielder netted a goal on his Premier League debut against Aston Villa.
The six-cap France international signed for Spurs in a club-record £55m deal from Lyon this summer, and was making his competitive debut for his new side against the Villans.
Ndombele played well, showcasing his all-action style of play with two shots, two tackles, one interception, one key pass and crucially, one goal – his curled effort tied the score at 1-1 and allow Mauricio Pochettino’s men to go on and win it.
The 22-year-old’s power and positivity in the middle of the park was key in helping Spurs progress up the field and take the game to Villa, and he certainly looks to be an excellent addition to the midfield.
Let’s take a look at how the Tottenham fans on Twitter reacted to their record signing’s debut…
I loved a lot about NDombele’s performance, but that no nonsense, ‘nope, get the ball’ celebration after scoring a worldie in front of his new home end, on his EPL debut tells you everything you need to know about the player we’ve signed. ? #COYS #THFC

Ndombele is a player we were definitely missing. The guy was unbelievable when he turned. Poch said he’s only 30-40%, Imagine what he’s like when he’s 100% @TanguyNdombele #COYS #THFC #Spurs #TottenhamHotspur #TanguyNdombele

Ndombele looked a little nervous on debut but what a goal & thenI think we saw a glimpse of the player we have signed. Very impressed. Until he went off I thought Winks was excellent. Eriksen… please don’t go… you will be missed. #THFC #COYS
