A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Sergio Reguilon’s display as Spurs beat Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho’s men were looking to make it four wins on the spin in all competitions as they hosted the Eagles. And they got off to a great start with Gareth Bale opening the scoring after 25 minutes.
Tottenham would go into the break level after Christian Beneke scored for the visitors. But Bale soon put them back in front before Harry Kane scored a stunning third. Kane would add his second later on.
Reguilon returned to the starting lineup after being replaced by Ben Davies for the trip to Fulham during the week.
And the Spaniard certainly seemed to vindicate Mourinho’s decision to pick him. As shown by Whosscored.com, he made five successful tackles and five interceptions. No player managed more in either area during the game.
For some, it is no coincidence that Spurs’ poor run of form earlier this year came at a time when Reguilon was injured.
The left-back – who earns around £48,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – spent just over a month out from mid-January. And plenty of supporters felt that the gulf in quality between himself and Ben Davies was made clear during Sunday’s win.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans reacted to Reguilon’s display in the win…
Reguilon makes such a huge difference to this team

We’ve missed Reguilon so much

Such a joy to watch Reguilon marauding down the left rather than Davies treading quicksand out there

Reguilon is the best left back I have seen in a Spurs shirt.

We look so much better with Reguilon in the side, helps Son create so much space and his crossing is excellent.

Commentators praising Kane and Bale, fair play but put some respect on everyone tonight. Hojberg, Lucas, Sanchez and Reguilon have been immense tonight. #COYS
