Sergio Reguilon was handed his Tottenham Hotspur debut last night – and made a great first impression.
The Spaniard was deplyed a left wing-back by Jose Mourinho, giving him the license to get forwards and support in the final third.
Reguilon was actually at fault somewhat for Chelsea’s goal in the EFL Cup Round of 16 clash, sliding in a little to eagerly on Cesar Azpilicueta who squared for Timo Werner to score.
From there on though, Reguilon was excellent for Spurs.
The star, signed from Real Madrid for a fee that could reportedly reach £32 million (Sky Sports), was full of energy and was a constant outlet out on the left.
Fans were heaping praise on the new acquisition, as was former Spurs star Micky Hazard, who said excitably on Twitter: “Liking the look of Reguilon, looks a good player, quick, composed, skilful. I like him COYS.”

Quick is probably actually a bit of an understatement from Hazard.
One of the most eye-catching moment of Reguilon’s performance came as Chelsea threatened to counter towards the end of the first-half.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was driving into the Spurs half when Reguilon steamed back out of nowhere to challenge him and win the ball back for his side.
TBR’s View – Reguilon will be a Tottenham favourite
Quick, composed and skilful are words that will likely be used a lot by Spurs fans to describe Reguilon.
His slide on Azpilicueta aside, it really was a tremedous debut for the 23-year-old, and fans should be very exciting by his capture.
He’s made a great impression with all of his media work and behind the scenes bits after signing, and it seems he has the potential to become an absolute hit with the Spurs faithful.
