Tottenham Hotspur returned to winning ways in style on Saturday with an exceptional 3-0 victory away to Everton at Goodison Park.
After losing to Chelsea and drawing with Burnley before the international break, fans were becoming a little worried with the performances of Mauricio Pochettino’s men but they finally reached their potential with a demolition of the Toffees.
After a dry August, Harry Kane was the hero of the day, scoring a double and bringing his career goal tally for Spurs over the 100 mark. Christian Eriksen also netted on the day to send the away supporters home delighted.
While that duo will grab the headlines, Spurs fans have been paying special mention to their unsung hero of the match, Ben Davies. The Welshman put in a storming performance on the left flank, even assisting Kane’s second goal of the afternoon.
In Danny Rose’s absence, Davies is stepping up to the mark and if he keeps this up, Rose could find it tough to get back into Pochettino’s starting eleven.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Davies’ performance…
Spurs outstanding. Kane and Eriksen will take the plaudits and rightly so, but Trippier, Davies & Sissoko all impressive, if unsung 👊🏻#COYS
