3 Most Under Appreciated Tottenham Stars From Last Season

Tottenham Hotpur were one of the best sides last season in the Premier League, but due to some average performances in the last few games, they missed out on the title and even failed to secure the second spot in the League table, but with a third position finish, they will now be participating in the UEFA Champions League.

Their Argentine manager has a huge task ahead of him as he will have to reassess the entire squad and will have to figure out the best possible lineup for the Champions League fixtures. Adding some new faces to the squad is now a necessity for the manager or the players will suffer fatigue and eventually, their performance will go down.

The fans would surely be expecting more from the team and the pressure from the board will make it harder for Pochettino than ever before. Tottenham’s current squad is studded with young talents and are not experienced to play European football. The manager has recently completed the signing of former Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama, and that will give the midfielders a much needed rest in a few games.

The support from the crowd plays a major role in players’ performance on the big stage and Tottenham’s current squad have many heroes, yet there are some players who went unnoticed. So, here we will give you the names of those 3 players, who are still under appreciated:

  1. Christian Eriksen:

The 24-year-old Danish international has been there for the side in their every ups and downs. Eriksen joined the Lilly-Whites back in 2013 from the Dutch side Ajax, for whom, he made more than 150 appearances. He made his debut for the side a month later and assisted Gylfi Sigurðsson. Eriksen has recently completed his third season with the side.

He made 35 appearances for the team last season and scored 6 goals and created 114 chances, 14 out of which were converted into the back of the net. Eriksen is surely an important asset for the manager, but due to the rise of Harry Kane and Delle Alli, he went unnoticed last season.

  1. Son Heung-Min:

The 23-year-old South Korean international joined the Lilly-Whites last summer after spending 2 wonderful years with the German side Bayer Leverkusen. He made 87 appearances for the Germans during his time and the forward bagged 29 goals.

Due to the wonderful performance and incredible fitness of Kane and Alli, Son was used primarily as a backup and his first team appearances were cut short. He still managed 42 appearances last season, but scored some handful of goals. He failed to cope with the harshness of the Premier League, but no one can doubt his abilities. The South Korean is a very versatile player, and he could operate the game from various positions, leaving him as an useful option for the manager next season.

  1. Danny Rose:

Tottenham’s major weapon last season was their backline. The defensive lineup of the North Londoners was excellent in almost every single game and did nothing wrong to upset the fans. The central Belgian pair was simply amazing to watch and even on the right, Kyle Walker did a fantastic job.

But besides all these names, Tottenham’s left back Danny Rose was one of the best defensive performers. The 25-year-old Englishman made 24 appearances for the side last year, and won 54% of his defensive duels. He was instrumental whenever the team launched a counter and was ever present whenever the team needed him at the back barring a few times. He remained under the shadow of the centre halves the entire season, but we are pretty sure that he has shown what he is capable of.
