Dele Alli was pance, but Davinson Sanchez looked the business.
Pochettino was brimming with praise for the new boy. “He was very good. The performance was solid. The good thing is that he was very calm and relaxed on the pitch.
“He was aggressive and played the ball. I’m very happy because he’s young and in the Premier League when you start to play and come from the Netherlands it’s always a big impact. But for him it was very good.”
It was an uncompromising start from the 21 year old who had a significant price tag hanging over his head. One time Spurs defender Graham Roberts hailed Sanchez as ‘incredible today’.
The Colombian was fleet of foot, dominating and not afraid to get stuck in. Which is coded language for getting away with two fouls in the in the first 6 minutes of play.
A promising start that suggested that it won’t be long until he looks like he’s been playing alongside Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen all his career.
