Tottenham Hotspur: Davinson Sanchez slammed for display despite comeback win

Image for Tottenham Hotspur: Davinson Sanchez slammed for display despite comeback win

Journalist Rob Guest has slammed Tottenham Hotspur defender Davinson Sanchez for his poor display in his club’s most recent game. 

Spurs travelled to the south coast this weekend in the Premier League and managed to pick up all three points in the most dramatic fashion after falling two goals behind early in the second half.

Indeed, Kieffer Moore’s brace gave Bournemouth a seemingly cosy lead, but Tottenham hit back thanks to Ryan Sessegnon and Ben Davies before Rodrigo Bentancur made it 3-2 right at the death.

Despite this win, however, it seems not everyone in a Spurs shirt impressed, and the disappointing display of Sanchez was noted in Guest’s player ratings for

Indeed, Guest gave the defender a 4/10 for his performance, writing: “Back in the team on the right of the back three and was all at sea for the opener as he raced across in hope of cutting the ball out, only to leave Moore in acres of space to net. Not convincing at all and subbed off early in the second half.”

TIF Thoughts on Davinson Sanchez and Spurs…

In the end, the Colombian was subbed after 58 minutes with the score still 2-1 in the Cherries’ favour. Seeing as he lost the ball twice, didn’t make a single tackle, was caught offside once and completed just 1/3 long balls (via SofaScore), it’s easy to see why manager Antonio Conte may have been underwhelmed and had him hooked.

Incidentally, in Dan Kilpatrick’s player ratings for the Evening Standard, Sanchez was handed another 4/10 for his efforts. It was noted that he was ‘dragged out of position for both of Moore’s goals’, while he also ‘looked uncomfortable in and out of possession’.

In the end though, despite the sub-par performance from the Tottenham player, his side just did enough to squeeze past the Cherries and pick up three points, which keep them third in the league for another week.
