Japhet Tanganga was incredible up against Jack Grealish. Meanwhile, Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez put last season behind them with sensational displays.

Tanganga and Skipp stake claim for prominent roles with stunning displays in Spurs win over Manchester City

Tanganga and Skipp were two of the players who were probably anxious to find out what the plans were for them this season.
