Alasdair Gold was left slamming the display of Davinson Sanchez despite Tottenham Hotspur winning 2-0 at home versus West Brom in the Premier League.
Harry Kane netted the opener for Spurs on his return from injury inside the opening 10 minutes of the second half before Heung-Min Son sealed the win to give the North London club a much-needed three points.
Should Spurs start Sanchez?
Although there were some very good performances for Jose Mourinho’s team, Sanchez’s display flattered to deceive Gold.
Writing in his latest piece for football.london, the journalist claimed that the former Ajax ace was ‘fortunate’ that Hugo Lloris saved a header from Mbaye Diagne in the first half which could have proved costly for the Lilywhites.
Gold also highlighted his general struggles at trying to contain Diagne, as he gave him a 6/10 overall rating, the joint-lowest out of any of his teammates to have set foot on the pitch.
Sanchez did not have his best game for Spurs
Sanchez certainly did not have his best game for THFC, as the Colombia international lost out on no fewer than eight of his duels, the second-most lost out of his teammates (Sofascore).
He also failed to make a single interception and lost possession of the ball four times in the match (Sofascore).
Sanchez will be happy with the clean sheet, but the 24-year-old central defender can certainly perform better for his side.
