Tottenham Hotspur recovered from a disastrous start and finding themselves 2-0 down to salvage a 2-2 draw in the first leg of their Champions League knockout tie against Juventus in Turin on Tuesday night, and Spurs fans loved Mousa Dembele’s display in the middle of the park.
The 30-year-old, rated at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, has sometimes struggled to appear consistently on the pitch because of injury, but he has now shone against Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and the Serie A leaders in the last few weeks.
The Belgium international dominated the midfield area, dictated the play and showed that he could bring the ball forward into space as well, and it didn’t go unnoticed by the north London outfit’s faithful.
Tottenham supporters were quick to take to social media to have their say on his performance, and while one said “he’s better than I’ve ever seen him”, another said “there is no finer midfielder in Europe than Dembele when he’s in this form”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
