The Wales international has missed the club’s last 18 matches in all competitions, with Jose Mourinho turning to youngster Japhet Tanganga in recent weeks to deputise.

Davies stepped up his recovery over the winter break while most of his teammates were resting up in more exotic locations, and that allowed him to come straight into the starting XI against Villa.

Spurs may have conceded two goals, but Davies produced a strong performance on his return.

According to @TheSpursWeb, the full-back completed 82% of his passes, won 12 duels, made five clearances, five blocks and two interceptions, and also blocked three shots.

The Portuguese has become a big fan of youngster Tanganga, but Davies undoubtedly provided a huge reminder of his quality.
