'Really exceptional': Michael Owen absolutely stunned by £1.3m Leeds player today

Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville earned praise from Michael Owen for his opening goal at Tottenham Hotspur.

Jesse Marsch’s Whites headed to Spurs hoping to make it two Premier League wins in a row against top-six opposition.

And Leeds, who stunned Liverpool last weekend, took the lead against Antonio Conte’s stuttering charges.

Brenden Aaronson played in Summerville, who got the better of Eric Dier and fired low past Hugo Lloris.

Owen loved what he saw from the £1.3million ace, telling the Premier League website: “I just think this is such a good goal.

“The ball is behind him, he takes a lovely touch with the outside of his foot, another one to keep it away from the defender and then finishes it brilliantly.

“It’s a really hard chance. He’s behind the defender when he gets the ball. How he does that is really, really exceptional.”

It was Summerville’s fourth goal in four matches, against a side that conceded the opening goal for the eighth game in a row.

Harry Kane then equalised in the 25th minute, but Leeds retook the lead on the stroke of half-time through Rodrigo.

However, Tottenham drew level again in the 51st minute, with Illan Meslier failing to keep out Ben Davies’ 20-yard effort.

More goals were to follow as the half went on, Rodrigo netting in the 76th minute and Rodrigo Bentancur making it 3-3 five minutes later.

And sadly for Leeds, their defensive issues proved their downfall as Bentancur rolled the ball home from Dejan Kulusevski’s cutback on the byline.

To make things worse, Tyler Adams was sent off for a second yellow for a late tackle on Yves Bissouma shortly after.

Leeds will have a lot of work to do during the World Cup break, but there have been a few positives.

Summerville’s form and progress is certainly one of those.
