Two of the Premier League’s big guns went head to head at White Hart Lane today. Here are 3 things we learned from the Premier League clash.
1. Sandro is the midfielder Spurs have been searching for
Tottenham’s best player on the day, Sandro’s wonderful performance was topped off by a 25-yard Thunderbolt which left David de Gea a spectator. The Brazilian broke up play and kept the Tottenham midfield ticking over and often spread out play to the impressive Aaron Lennon. After bringing in Etienne Capoue and Paulinho in January, it is still Sandro and Moussa Dembele that are keeping Spurs going. Although Capoue hasn’t had a great chance to impress due to a lengthy injury lay-off, Paulinho hasn’t been bad, but he’s not been worth the reported £17m transfer fee either. Sandro seems to have finally found his form and place at Tottenham, and that could prove more valuable than Paulinho’s signing ever will.
