Graham Roberts praises four Tottenham players after Chelsea draw
Taking to Twitter, Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts has hailed the performances of four players after the club played out a goalless draw against Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.
Spurs put in a disciplined performance at Stamford Bridge to stifle a Chelsea attack that had been in free-scoring form in recent weeks. And while our attacking unit failed to click as it has over the course of the season, the result was still enough for us to move back to the top of the Premier League table.
And former Tottenham star and club legend Graham Roberts has admitted that it wasn’t the best performance from the team attacking-wise, he has picked out four players for special mention after the game.
The players that were on the receiving end of the praise from Roberts were full-back duo Serge Aurier and Sergio Reguilon, along with centre-back Joe Rodon as well as midfielder Moussa Sissoko. (h/t Twitter)
Rodon, making his first Premier League start for us, put in a solid display, albeit there were a couple of mistakes which could have hurt us. The Welshman kept a close watch on Tammy Abraham throughout while making key blocks and interceptions.
Aurier and Reguilon excelled as well, managing to keep the dangerous Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech quiet for most parts while also providing an outlet on the flanks when Spurs were in possession.
Sissoko’s performance might not have stood out but the Frenchman almost slotted in as a third centre-back for the most part sweeping things up effectively at the back, while providing cover to Aurier and Rodon. And, his contributions, along with the aforementioned trio, were acknowledged by club legend Roberts. (h/t Twitter)
Not at our best attacking but kept so solid and that’s vital great point. and for me Joe Rodon superb and @Serge_aurier superb again and @sergio_regui also @MoussaSissoko very disciplined in his role ! COYS
