Gary Neville has heaped praise on Tottenham

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has heaped praise on Tottenham.

Tottenham drew 2-2 with Manchester United in the 21st round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on Friday (Nov. 15). Three points were not enough.

United took the lead through Rasmus Hojlund just three minutes into the game, but Spurs regrouped and equalized in the 19th minute through a brilliant goal by Heurelisbon.

In the 40th minute, the balance shifted again. Marcus Rashford put United back in front. This was not the Tottenham of old. 토토사이트 At the start of the second half, Rodrigo Bentancur equalized again.

Spurs dominated in every statistical category: shots on goal (16 to 9), shots on target (6 to 2), possession (64 to 36), passes (538 to 304), and successful passes (481 to 232).

It proved why Spurs are ranked 5th and United are 7th.

What’s more, Spurs were without the likes of Son Heung-min, James Maddison, Dejan Kulusebski, Yves Bissouma, and Pape Sarr. Son was away at the Asian Cup, while Bissouma and Sarr were at the Africa Cup of Nations. Maddison has just returned from injury, but was not fit for the game against United. Kuluczewski was also ruled out due to a midweek illness.

Spurs snapped up all-rounder Timo Werner and center back Radu Dragucin as soon as the winter transfer window opened in January. Both made their first appearances against United. Werner started and Dragucin came on as a substitute.

Neville was surprised by the strength of Spurs’ squad. “With the current squad, if Son, Kuluczynski and Maddison came back, you’d think, ‘What happened? How did Tottenham get this squad’. Dragucin and others were good signings, and with good coaching, you end up with a good team,” he said.

“We have three center backs (Dragusin, van der Penne and Romero), two exciting fullbacks (Pedro Foro and Destiny Udoji), a good goalkeeper (Guglielmo Vicario), and the midfield is back after the Africa Cup of Nations. Add to that the return of three forwards (Son Heung-min, Krzysztof Kuluczewski and Maddison) and Spurs will be pushing forward to the end of the season,” he said, adding that he believes they can compete for the title.

Neville added: “Spurs are a really good team to watch, there’s a lot going on. Postecoglou is a breath of fresh air and has completely transformed the entire club. 토토사이트 순위 Externally and internally, he’s having an impact on everyone.”

Spurs have transformed into a team that looks forward to tomorrow more than they do today.
