A number of Tottenham Hotspur supporters have taken to Twitter to laud Davinson Sanchez after the defender produced an outstanding performance as Jose Mourinho’s men thrashed Burnley.
Spurs got back to winning ways in some style at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Harry Kane and Lucas Moura put the home side 2-0 up inside nine minutes.
Son Heung-min would then score a stunning solo goal just after the half-hour mark.
Kane and Moussa Sissoko then wrapped the game up with goals in the second-half.
It was a scintillating attacking performance from Spurs. But perhaps Mourinho will be just as pleased to see his side keep their first clean sheet since his took charge.
It was an excellent effort at the back from Toby Alderweireld and Sanchez. The Colombian, in particular, had come in for criticism for his display at Manchester United in midweek.
But Sanchez was superb against the Clarets. He made a goalline clearance and rarely looked like he was going to give the visitors a chance to get through.
Unsurprisingly, the fans were full of praise for Sanchez after the victory. Some even suggested that he deserved the man of the match award – which is an incredible achievement given how good Tottenham were going forward.
Here is what some of the fans made of the defender’s display…
Complete performance from spurs today, everyone was brilliant but special mention to Davinson Sanchez. Absolute rock at the back again!!

We have praised our attacker a lot so far but Sanchez needs a special mention. Has been performing phenomenally well in the last few matches.

Amazing display. Davinson Sanchez my MOTM matures with every game we play. Every player on the pitch 10/10 today. Tottenham are back.

Call me reactionary but Davinson Sanchez is the greatest ever defender to grace this game

1- never seen so many ‘goal of the season’ goals in just one game
2- stars like Harry, Sonny will always be good, but Sissoko, Sanchez and Dier had fantastic games
3- I really liked how we defend in the 2nd half!
4- Wolves will be an excellent, tough test for Jose
