Tottenham Hotspur: Alasdair Gold reacts to ‘superb’ Romero challenge v Leicester -Premier League News

Journalist Alasdair Gold has been full of praise for Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Cristian Romero following his ‘superb’ performance against Leicester City.

The Lowdown: Eye-catching performance

Antonio Conte named the 24-year-old in his starting line-up for the Premier League clash against the Foxes on Sunday afternoon as the Lilywhites secured a 3-1 victory at home, with goals coming from captain Harry Kane and a brace from Son Heung-Min.

The Argentina defender caught the eye of the football.london correspondent when making a challenge which ultimately led to Son scoring Spurs’ second goal of the match on the hour mark.

The Latest: Gold praises Romero challenge

Gold took to Twitter immediately after the goal to share his thoughts on Romero’s fateful intervention, which prompted some Leicester complaints over what they felt was a foul on Caglar Soyuncu.

Providing updates on the match for football.london, the journalist wrote: “Son fires home to double Spurs’ lead, with Kulusevski setting him up. It all came from a huge, crunching tackle from Romero in the centre of the pitch. Full commitment from the Argentine, who has been superb today once again.”

The Verdict: Romero was excellent for Spurs

Aside from that moment, the £29k-per-week Romero was a standout performer against Brendan Rodgers’ side, proving to be an absolute rock at the heart of the defence. As per SofaScore, the Argentine made five clearances, three tackles and three interceptions, along with winning both of his aerial duels and five of his ground duels.

His challenge turned out to be a pivotal moment in the game because it helped to give Spurs a two-goal safety cushion, at a time when Conte’s side were lacking a bit of inspiration while the match was very much in the balance.
