Tottenham fans praise Juan Foyth after he impresses on full debut

Tottenham Hotspur advanced through to the fourth round of the EFL Cup as they recorded a narrow 1-0 victory against Barnsley at Wembley on Tuesday night, and Spurs fans were impressed with the performance of Juan Foyth on his debut.

Mauricio Pochettino decided to hand the summer signing his bow alongside Jan Vertonghen at the heart of the defence, and he kept a clean sheet as Dele Alli’s second half goal proved to be the difference between the two teams.

Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on his showing via social media, and while some described it as “amazing”, others believe he could a ‘potential heir to Toby Alderweireld’.
