Mauricio Pochettino gave rave reviews to two of his players amid a fine Tottenham Hotspur performance against Everton.
Ben Davies was a stand out player for Spurs on the day, bagging one assist for Harry Kane and it was his shot that was saved before being turned in by Christian Eriksen during the 3-0 victory at Goodison Park.
The Welshman has benefited from the injury-enforced absence of Danny Rose and his displays this season so far for Tottenham have been impressive with the attacking side to his game coming on leaps and bounds.
football.london asked Pochettino whether he felt Davies was currently playing the best football of his career.
“I don’t know. For me it’s difficult to judge. I think he was fantastic, not only today but in the last three seasons from the day he arrived, on the bench, out of the squad or playing, he’s a great professional, a great player and a great man. Today he was top,” said the Argentine.
Davinson Sanchez slipped effortlessly into the Tottenham backline, making his first start since his club record £38m move from Ajax this summer.
The Colombian international dealt with the pace of the Premier League well and showed he has the physical ability to cope with it as well.
“He was very good. The performance was solid. The good thing is that he was very calm and relaxed on the pitch,” Pochettino told football.london.
“He was aggressive and played the ball. I’m very happy because he’s young and in the Premier League when you start to play and come from the Netherlands it’s always a big impact. But for him it was very good.”
