Tottenham Hotspur ensured they will finish top of Group H in the Champions League with one game to spare following their 2-1 win away against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night, and Spurs fans were quick to praise defender Davinson Sanchez’s performance.
The 21-year-old was once again named alongside Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen in the back three as Mauricio Pochettino’s men looked to bounce back from their disappointing 2-0 north London derby defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday, and they certainly reacted well.
Even though they fell behind to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s opener, second-half goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min were enough to give Spurs the three points that will see them finish at the summit in what was labelled as the ‘Group of Death’ when the initial draw was made.
Tottenham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on Sanchez’s showing, and while one described it as “faultless”, another said the Colombian is “my new favourite player”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Davinson Sanchez, 21 years old, cost us nearly £40m but what a buy. #COYS

Worried me in a couple of his early games but has been absolutely sensational since. Has all the composure and pace of ledley. Well worth the price on current form.

Fantastic result in Dortmund last night especially after the disappointment of the weekend. Sanchez is gonna be one hell of a player and reminds me so much of Ledley! Winks also superb! #coys
