If one image described Spurs unhindered playing the ball from the back, then it’s this one.
Still an concern that our midfield is an afterthought, but we are where we are, which also happens to be near the top of the table.
The Tottenham passing accuracy was superb, with the team as a whole averaging 89.69%. I know I bang on about this element of the stats, but without it you are constantly conceding to chaos.
Juan Foyth was frankly imperious. Good grief, he only made 4 duff passes all game.
Harry Winks was also acutely accurate.
If we look at Winks in isolation, he was a genuine fulcrum and something that Eric Dier for example, simply cannot offer.
Frequently a hit and miss (literally) merchant, Sissoko’s punchy short passes peppered the game and he only made 4 mistakes, achieving 55 successful passes from 59 attempts.
In the final analysis, Pochettino has implemented a culture of cohesive football at Spurs. Style and finesse built upon delivering the core disciplines.
