A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to suggest that they would not mind seeing Ben Davies replaced by namesake Alphonso Davies after Bayern Munich’s win over Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Bayern take a 3-0 lead into the second-leg after a stunning performance at Stamford Bridge. All of their goals came during the second-half, but the victory had been on the cards all night.
Serge Gnabry – who Spurs know all about this season – will take many of the headlines. But there were a number of outstanding performances from the Bavarian giants’ players.
And Davies appears to have been one of those to catch the eye of the Tottenham fans on social media.
The Canada international produced an amazing assist for Bayern’s third goal. The left-back danced past the challenges of three Chelsea players before crossing for Robert Lewandowski.
With Lewandowski in ridiculous form this season, it was no surprise to see the striker take full advantage of the opportunity. But it was telling that the majority of Bayern’s players went running to Davies rather than Lewandowski when the goal was scored.
And plenty of Tottenham fans have joked on social media that they may have the wrong Davies playing at left-back.
Several lauded the 19-year-old and suggested that they would absolutely love to have him within their ranks at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
It does appear that the teenager is a frightening talent. And it seems unlikely that the Spurs fans would have been the only ones to wish that they could poach him for their own side after his latest display.
Here is what some of the Tottenham supporters were saying about Davies…
Imagine having Ben Davies instead of Alphonse Davies as LB.
