Loads of Tottenham fans have been running the rule over their win at Brighton, and they all agree it’s time for Danny Rose to nail down the left back spot.
Tottenham arguably have four top quality full backs, and that’s without even mentioning rising star Kyle Walker-Peters, and fans are delighted that Rose is back to his best.
The English international tried to force a move to Manchester United last summer, and a combination of injuries and poor form allowed Davies to nail down the left back spot.
Rose has been the better of the pair so far this season though, and he chipped in with a vintage Rose assist on Saturday evening.
Harry Kane had given Tottenham the lead from the penalty spot, and Rose flew down the left flank to fire in a low cross for Erik Lamela to steer home with 15 minutes to go.
The 28 year-old made three key passes, two tackles and two interceptions, and although his defending for Brighton’s consolation goal was quite poor, fans are heaping praise on his display.

Danny Rose with a similar performance from an attacking perspective to what we became accustomed to in the 15/16 campaign.

agree Rose was excellent. Also important point that people say Lamela is not good when he has to think about things and good only on instinct. But he had time today when rose crossed and scored a calm and lovely goal.

Rose was brilliant? Apart from the goal but you could also say the whole back line was at fault

Danny was class

Had a few dodgy moments but our best fullback at the club. Trippier on the other hand was dreadful. For a full back he can’t tackle for toffee. Wingback or nothing

Danny is on his way back and looked powerful today, although a tiny bit rusty.
