Tottenham fans discuss performance of Bryan Gil after Arsenal defeat
Tottenham were beaten 3-1 by Arsenal in the North London derby and afterwards, Spurs supporters were quick to praise Byran Gil.
Nuno Espirito Santo saw his team put the sword by a clinical first-half display from the Gunners.
Goals from Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka saw Arsenal go in 3-0 at the interval.
Son Heung-min did get one back late on for Spurs but the damage was done inside the opening 45 minutes.
Tottenham have now shipped three goals in each of their last three games. That’s not ideal for the Spurs boss and he has to tighten things up in the near future.
It was the cameo from Gil that put a smile on the face of Tottenham supporters.
He came on with just over 20 minutes remaining and showcases his talents with some neat touches.
The youngster checked in at Tottenham during the summer. He cost the club £20 million with Erik Lamela heading to Sevilla in a part exchange.
He arguably showed more in 20 minutes than others did during longer periods and a Premier League start has to be close.
What did Tottenham fans say about Gil?
Quite simply, they were blown away. It wasn’t a great day to be a Tottenham fan and losing the derby-day clash is never nice.
It’s fair to say that Gil did provide a bright spark though and that at least offers some hope for the future.
Gil earns £42,000-a-week at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and as a youngster, he looks like being a big player in the future.
The trickster might have done some more damage had he played for longer.
That wasn’t to be and supporters hope that Espirito Santo rewards him with a start in the near future.
Here is what they had to say regarding Gil at the full-time whistle.
