Can Tottenham defender Ben Davies cope against PSV?

Tottenham host Dutch outfit PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night in the Champions League group stages and are entering must-win territory if they are to qualify for the knockout rounds.

Spurs were dealt a blow in their last European match, as they drew away at PSV 2-2 and it was a difficult fixture for Welsh defender Ben Davies.

The 25-year-old was run ragged by the Mexican speed machine Hirving Lozano throughout the game, as he got himself on the scoresheet.

So has Davies learned his lessons ahead of the rematch?

Davies is currently in pole position for the left-back spot at Spurs and manager Mauricio Pochettino is having to cope without the injured Danny Rose.

 

The North London club will be susceptible to the counter attack at Wembley against a pacy PSV and that is something that could catch out the Wales international.

Davies has enjoyed a fairly mediocre start to the campaign compared to the standards he set last year and has been exposed on a number of times in the full-back area.

He will need to be on his A-game to nullify the threat of Lozano and knows he will be in for a tough battle.
