Kieron Dyer reacts to Tanguy Ndombele display in Tottenham win

Kieron Dyer has told Sky Sports (broadcast on 17/10 from 16:00) that Tanguy Ndombele was definitely the man of the match as Tottenham Hotspur beat Newcastle United on Sunday.

Spurs have moved up to fifth in the Premier League table. They beat the Magpies 3-2 at St James’ Park despite going a goal down inside two minutes.

It was Ndombele who equalised for the visitors. It was a superb finish from the Frenchman, who looks to have found a new gear in recent times.

Of course, it has been a tough campaign for Ndombele. He was out of the fold for some time after a turbulent summer.

Could Centre-Forwards Become Extinct?

But since his return, he has been a real game-changer for Spurs. And following the victory over Newcastle, Dyer suggested that the 24-year-old was the standout performer for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

“With Skipp and Hojbjerg, they’re letting Ndombele just go and express himself. And I think Tottenham are onto something there,” he told Sky Sports.

“Like I said, Ndombele was definitely man of the match for me. And with their front three and Ndombele, Tottenham are always going to be a threat and score goals.”

Nuno could be on verge of one huge victory if Tottenham are about to see best of Ndombele

It has been clear for some time that getting the best out of Ndombele could be a game-changer for any of the bosses he has had at Tottenham.

His talent is unquestionable. Ndombele is a player of outrageous quality. However, something had never quite clicked for him in North London.

Obviously, the optimism will probably remain somewhat cautious. There have been false dawns in the past.

But Ndombele has made a real impact since Nuno brought him back into the side this season.

Nuno still has a point to prove before all of his doubters are silenced. But being the manager to finally get the best out of Ndombele will see him surely clear one large hurdle.
