'What a baller': Jamie O'Hara stunned by £20m Tottenham player v Leeds

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur was described as an “absolute baller” by Jamie O’Hara on Saturday.

The talkSPORT pundit lauded the Spurs ace after his brace helped Antonio Conte’s side beat Leeds United.

Crysencio Summerville opened the scoring for Leeds after he got the better of Eric Dier to slot low past Hugo Lloris.

Tottenham had conceded the opening goal for their eighth game in a row.

Harry Kane then equalised in the 25th minute, but Leeds retook the lead on the stroke of half-time through Rodrigo.

However, Tottenham drew level again in the 51st minute.

Illan Meslier, who had flapped at the cross which led to Kane’s goal, failed to keep out Ben Davies’ 20-yard effort.

More goals were to follow as the half went on.

Spurs fell behind again in the 76th minute, as Rodrigo (the Leeds forward) found the back of the net.

However, Bentancur made it 3-3 five minutes later.

The £20million man chested down Matt Doherty’s cross and fired a volley which went in off Luke Ayling.

And seven minutes from time, the Uruguayan sent the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium into a frenzy.

Dejan Kulusevski went past Liam Cooper on the right and pulled the ball back for Bentancur to roll home.

Cue celebrations from O’Hara on Twitter:

Victory means Tottenham will spend the World Cup period and Christmas in the Premier League’s top four.
