Jamie O’Hara has named his very unusual ideal Tottenham Hotspur defence while speaking on talkSPORT.
The former Spurs central midfield player has claimed that the North London club should line up with Matt Doherty, Japhet Tanganga, Ben Davies and Sergio Reguilon as a back four.
Unusual Spurs defence
The fact that O’Hara has called for Ben Davies to play as a central defender straight away means that there would already be an unusual look to the back line.
Should Spurs start Sanchez?
Tanganga is also an unusual call given that he, along with Joe Rodon, has played in the fewest amount of games out of all the centre-halves for Jose Mourinho so far this season.
Having Doherty over Serge Aurier is also a debatable call given that the Ivory Coast international has averaged more tackles, clearances, shots, key passes, dribbles and crosses so far in this campaign than the former (Whoscored).
The likes of Davinson Sanchez, currently valued at £36m by Transfermarkt, Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld also miss out in O’Hara’s ideal defence, in what is certainly a new take on the Lilywhites defensive options.
