The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern were very impressed with Fernando Llorente’s performance against Real Madrid. A surprise starter against the Spanish giants, Llorente was not expected to put in much of a shift, but he surprised everyone in the pub. Indeed, he was arguably Tottenham’s best player, and that says a lot about his quality.
His fine performance did not go unnoticed amongst Tottenham fans, it seems, with a vast majority of supporters keen to see him retain his place this weekend. Our landlord recently polled supporters on whether they would like to see him start again against Liverpool this weekend, and the result was quite astounding. Indeed, it seems as though he’s a favourite amongst fans, with a whopping 70% of supporters revealing that they would like to see him start again on Sunday.
It would certainly be a massive show of faith were that to happen, particularly with Dele Alli available domestically, but you can’t say that he doesn’t deserve it. Combining fantastically with Harry Kane, Llorente provided attacking support and he also provided an out ball for his club, and he performed fantastically.
It remains to be seen whether he will get his chance, but the Tottenham fans have certainly had their say. He’s yet to pick up that elusive Tottenham goal, but could it finally come this weekend?
