Tottenham fans on Twitter can’t get over how good Danny Rose was yesterday

Danny Rose has cut a strange figure at Tottenham. The left0back was one of the best in the world in his position in the 2015/16 season before off-field issues and a debilitating knee injury saw him out of action for almost a year. However, he’s starting to return to his very best form, and yesterday he was stupidly good against Chelsea at Wembley.

Tottenham managed to edge out Chelsea in a tense affair at the national stadium, winning 1-0 in the Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg. VAR will be making the headlines, but Rose was the man who helped to carry his side through. His work up and down the left-flank simply cannot go ignored, as he did a great job in keeping Chelsea out and will enjoy going to Stamford Bridge with a 1-0 foot-up.

The job is certainly not done, though. Rose has been excellent in the first half of the tie, yet he still has a lot to do away from home in 15 days time. Stamford Bridge will be a tough place to go, although the Lilywhites can take respite from the fact that Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi will likely have been sold by then, and it was the talented youngster who took the game to them in the second-half. Whoever the Blues field, though, Rose and co will have to be at their brilliant best to get through unscathed.

The Lilywhites were in awe of Rose’s performance and will be keen to see more from that as the England international continues to rediscover his best form.
