Some Tottenham Hotspur fans loved Danny Rose’s display at Nou Camp and don’t want Ben Davies back

Tottenham Hotspur are through to the next round of the Champions League following a brilliant display against Barcelona at the Nou Camp. Despite some rotation, Barca still had a strong team, but Spurs put in a fantastic performance to earn a 1-1 draw.

Ben Davies has stepped up in his absence. However, on this sort of form Rose is simply the superior player.
