Another Tottenham player that its difficult not to love. Despite last night’s Nations League’s limitations as a fan spectacle, it was great to see Pierre deliver another rock solid performance, this time for his country.
Total successful actions is a blunt way of measuring a player’s actions, but it does give us a clear overview of efficiency.
Duels won is an important discipline for a defensive midfielder and the Dane beat his mean average, which is ordinarily 50.3%.
In a deadbeat game such as this, I cannot tell you how pleasing it is that Spurs have two players (the other being Eric Dier) who have delivered tip top performances. This is what professional sportsmen do.
Whatever happens in terms of our ongoing striker fiasco is one matter, but the certain knowledge that the ‘welcome mat’ has now been firmly removed from our midfield.
