Tottenham’s Davinson Sanchez Had A Debut to Remember vs. Everton

In an emphatic fashion, Tottenham Hotspur put Everton to the sword away from home in an emphatic 3-0 victory.

While it was a complete team performance, debutante Davinson Sanchez had a debut to remember.


In a bold tactical move, Mauricio Pochettino placed the young Colombian in the middle of the back three, splitting the dynamic Belgian tandem Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, using their athleticism and passing ability out wide.

At the start of the match, Sanchez committed some rash fouls, but as the match grew on, he put on an imperious performance.

Picking up right where he left off at Ajax, Sanchez was composed on the ball. He passed the ball well, found himself in the right positions to block shots, and read the game well.

It looked as if he’s play with Alderweireld and Vertonghen for many seasons (There must be something in the water at Ajax).

There were times during the match where he used his South American guile to get around pressing forwards.

Even though he wasn’t tested constantly throughout the match, according to Squawka, he made more defensive actions than any player on the pitch Saturday.

Even Spurs legends such as Graham Roberts Chimed in on the Colombian’s performance on Twitter:

After his stellar performance, Pochettino will look to the Colombian again in their crucial Champions League match at home vs. Borussia Dortmund.
