Display of Cristian Romero against Liverpool stunned some at Anfield
The performance of Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero against Liverpool on Saturday left some of the regulars in the Anfield press box taken aback, according to journalist Alasdair Gold on a video on his YouTube channel.
Romero was absolutely outstanding on Merseyside as Spurs secured an impressive point against the Reds. Of course, Arsenal’s win on Sunday means that the result has left Tottenham facing an uphill battle to get fourth.
But Antonio Conte’s men can take plenty of belief from their result and performance. They had chances to win the game. And Liverpool struggled to test Hugo Lloris too often.
That was largely down to an amazing defensive display from Tottenham. Ben Davies was magnificent. But Romero further proved why there is a belief that he could be a transformative signing for Spurs.
The Argentinian has been colossal for much of his first season in the Premier League. But it would appear that some were unaware of just how impressive the 24-year-old has been.
Gold suggested that the journalists who tend to cover Liverpool were actually stunned by the performance of the Tottenham centre-back.
“Cristian Romero, there was quite a few of the Liverpool regular journos, they were surprised at how good he was,” he told his YouTube channel.
“They were like ‘he’s a player, isn’t he’. He was injured, he would have missed the first game against them back in December. It just shows me even more so, I don’t think people were aware of how Romero was and what a coup it was for Spurs to get him because he looked world-class.”

Romero is perhaps not quite the finished article just yet. Sometimes he makes rash decisions. And he was not entirely flawless against the Reds.
But it is his first campaign in the Premier League. It is almost frightening to think of the level he could reach in the years to come.
Certainly, it will not be long at all until there is absolutely no surprise for anyone when Romero produces an amazing performance.
