'Should be nowhere near the team': Jamie O'Hara tells Conte to drop £40m Tottenham player
Jamie O’Hara has criticised Tottenham Hotspur defender Davinson Sanchez in wake of the 4-3 win over Leeds United.
Spurs came from behind three times to eventually seal victory against Jesse Marsch’s Whites.
Crysencio Summerville opened the scoring for Leeds after he got the better of Eric Dier to slot low past Hugo Lloris.
The visitors’ 10th-minute opener meant Tottenham had conceded the opening goal for their 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.
Illan Meslier, who had flapped at the cross which led to Kane’s goal, failed to keep out Ben Davies’ 20-yard effort.
Spurs fell behind again in the 76th minute, as Rodrigo (the Leeds forward) found the back of the net.
However, Rodrigo Bentancur made it 3-3 five minutes later.
The £20million man chested down Matt Doherty’s cross and fired a volley which went in off Luke Ayling.
And seven minutes from time, the Uruguayan sent the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium into a frenzy.
Dejan Kulusevski darted past Liam Cooper on the right and pulled the ball back for Bentancur to roll home.
‘We are a shambles at the back’
Despite the dramatic victory, there were certainly things to criticise about Tottenham.
The defence continues to look flimsy, and O’Hara was especially fuming with Davinson Sanchez.
The £40million man came off the bench to replace Clement Lenglet, and delivered a mixed performance.
Sanchez was beaten easily for Leeds’ third goal, but did weigh in with some good tackles and forward player after that.
Nonetheless, O’Hara seems to have had enough of the 26-year-old.
That said, he wasn’t particularly happy with the defence, full stop.
Tottenham can now take stock with the World Cup causing the season to grind to a halt.
In that time, there’s no doubt Daniel Levy, Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte will plan for the January transfer window.
