Alan Shearer says £10m Spurs player is 'rejuvenated' under Antonio Conte

Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies is in Alan Shearer’s latest Premier League Team of the Week.

The Spurs man put in a superb display for Antonio Conte’s side in the 3-0 win over Norwich last week.

Davies wasn’t a regular under Nuno Espirito Santo, but he’s quickly won a place in Conte’s starting line-up.

The 28-year-old has been playing as the left-sided centre-back in the Tottenham boss’ back three.

Against the Canaries, Davies played a role in Davinson Sanchez’s second-half goal.

His header from Son Heung-min’s corner led to his fellow defender finding the back of the net.

Davies then grabbed the assist for Son’s goal thanks to a fine one-two with Oliver Skipp.

The Wales international is looking much improved under Conte, and Shearer duly picked him in his XI.

“Rejuvenated under Antonio Conte,” he wrote on the Premier League website.

“He played his part in another clean sheet and set up Son Heung-min’s goal against Norwich City.”

Son also made the cut in Shearer’s XI.

Davies has been with Tottenham since 2014, when he joined for a reported £10million.

He has made 242 appearances for Spurs, registering five goals and 22 assists.

Davies is a quality player and it’s great to see Conte getting the best out of him.
