Tottenham fans took to Twitter to react excitedly following Juan Foyth’s performance against West Ham in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening.
The 20-year-old, making a rare start as Mauricio Pochettino rotated his side, put in a man of the match performance at the London Stadium as Spurs ran out 3-1 winners against the Hammers.
Typically, the young Argentine struggles to oust the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen from the first team due to their imperiously consistent form, but he shone against Manuel Pellegrini’s men.
Foyth has only made 17 appearances for Spurs since arriving from Estudiantes back in the summer of 2017, with most of those coming in cup competitons.
The Spurs starlet has done little wrong since arriving in north London, but it was his most recent performance that had Tottenham fans drooling over what their young defender could potentially become.
Let’s take a look at some of the best tweets following Foyth’s outstanding showing…
A phenominal performance from Juan Foyth tonight in a Tottenham Hotspur shirt with a couple of tackles even our legend Ledley King would be proud of.

Impressive stuff, was under a few spells of pressure but withstood them for the most part, great performances from Son and Foyth in particular. #COYS

Foyth showed last night why Poch bought him and why he rates him so highly believing he will develop into a top-class centre-back. How long will that take determines contract length for the older guys. Verts could be the Daddy to our crop. #thfc #coys
