Tanguy Ndombele becomes one of the best midfielders in the Premier League
On November 9, 2019, Tanguy Ndombele left for Tottenham against Sheffield United, but managed only 45 minutes of humiliation before being sacked at half-time.
He was wearing an injury and looked good off the beat, and it was a performance that raised questions about his future. Was the club’s record signing really good enough to play for Tottenham?
On January 17, 2021, he started for Tottenham against Sheffield United, and he put on an absolutely exceptional 90-minute display.
Ndombele was nothing like the player who struggled to adjust to life in London, brilliant on both sides of the pitch and quite like the £ 60million player Spurs expected him to be when he first came out. been brought back from Lyon.
Forming a terribly impressive pivot with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ndombele was the one who had the most license to play forward. He was given permission to try bold passes to unlock Sheffield United’s defense, and most importantly, he had the quality to pull off most of them.
He passed the ball with pinpoint accuracy and always wanted to shake things up, but it was Ndombele himself who stole the headlines with a quite exceptional lob to score Spurs’ third goal.
While he was forward in midfield, Ndombele did not shy away from his defensive duties. He dominated the tackle and was constantly vacuuming, forming a two-man demolition team alongside Hojbjerg.
The duo form a complete couple capable of excelling at both ends of the field. They barely played together and yet seem to have gotten along perfectly.
Jose Mourinho seems to have finally managed to join Ndombele and the results have been remarkable.
The Frenchman must now be considered one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. He can do it all at an incredibly high level, and if he can maintain that level of fitness, the sky is truly the limit.
