Werner signing not an end to Spurs attacking resurgence claims Tottenham correspondent journalist

Timo Werner impressed in his Tottenham Hotspur debut against Manchester United

Even though his goal attempts seemed like he last played football in the early weeks of November (he actually did), the rest of the game against Manchester United was spotless for newly-signed Spurs star Timo Werner.

Illness to Dejan Kulusevski meant that Timo Werner saw himself straight into the XI after managing to secure a loan transfer for himself from RB Leipzig, and he surely did not disappoint

Two of his five shots were on target and Andre Onana dealt with them with much ease. But let’s be honest, watching Werner miss goals was almost as entertaining as a cat video on the internet – you can’t look away, and it leaves you questioning life. His pace on the wings, however, proved to be a problem for the pair of Diogo Dalot and Jonny Evans at times. In fact, as per Opta Analyst, Werner had more touches in the opponent’s box than any other Tottenham player.

Werner compensated for his earlier missed attempts by delivering a precisely executed pass to Rodrigo Bentancur, marking his debut with his first assist for the club.

While his finishing may need some fine-tuning after his recent spell without playing, the match against Manchester United provided an excellent foundation for Werner to adapt to his new surroundings and teammates. The challenging environment will undoubtedly help Werner regain his sharpness and goal-scoring form.
