The French side played Manchester City and came out 2-1 winners at the Etihad. While Nabil Fekir starred in the attack, Ndombele was immense in the midfield and did his bit for Lyon.
The 21-year-old Frenchman has played five times for the Ligue 1 club this season and his performance in the Champions League caught the eye of a few Tottenham fans.
Spurs didn’t buy a single player in the offseason and have struggled in recent times, losing their last three games. Ndombele might not help us find the back of the net but he surely can keep the midfield from being overrun.
Some Spurs fans were quick to suggest we needed the 21-year-old while some were irate as to why we didn’t add to the midfield in the summer.

Could’ve had him for €40m in the summer. Will cost a lot more if he has a good CL campaign.

Ndombele showing tonight in the Champions League exactly the reason why Tottenham Hotspur should have looked to snap the midfielder up when we had the chance in the summer just passed us.

With bids like £3 million plus Josh Onomah we had no chance

Ndombele, fekir and depay would have been dream signings

This conversation it really hurts Ricky. Its madness that we didnt add at least one midfielder. Ndombele would be perfect addition…

Not signing a CM seemed ridiculous given the physical issues of VW, HW and MD, and is already being proved so. Bloody infuriating.
