So what you're saying is that he's a poor man's Robben?

Not really, from what I have seen of him, he is far more versatile. He has looked very bright against Villa so far.

Not really. He isn't 1 dimensional, and doesn't have the pace or the shot that Robben has. Much better passer, makes intelligent runs, but is still most dangerous cutting in from the right flank.

Haven't seen him at all, just trying to understand his style.

At the moment, yes. But, he is only 21. He has the potential to be just as good as Ribery.

Well whoever he turns out to be like, I'm liking what I'm seeing from him so far.

I'm pumped for the Chelsea game tomorrow. I'm feeling reasonably confident, because it's at the Lane. We just need to hope that Dembele and Paulinho can limit Chelsea's attacking midfielders. We also need to hope that Eriksen and Soldado can come up big in the attacking third. I feel that's it's a really good physical match up. It would be fantastic to see AVb stick it to Mourinho as well, who will get a lot of stick tomorrow.

Be interesting to see what sort of team AVB puts out tomorrow, I'd like to see Lamela and Holtby in the starting XI.

The Guardian has put out several articles on AVB and Mourinho's relationship. I didn't realize it was that strained, you get the feeling there is a real dislike from the two of them, especially from Jose towards AVB.

I was unaware it was strained in the first place. I watched that Mourinho documentary and AVB was praising Mourinho. So from there i assumed they were close friends. I was totally unaware of this.

A draw was the right result and it's certainly not a terrible result. We looked solid at the back again, we just got overrun by Chelsea's midfield in the second half. We really need Soldado and Eriksen to start clicking for us to be a real threat going forward. I want to see Lamela starting over Townsend too.

Considering the result we had against Chelsea last year, I'm happy with a point, top of the league as it stands, could be worse.

The disappointing part of Spurs’ attack was Roberto Soldado. Although he played a part in the goal, his all-round contribution was almost non-existent – he lost all three of his aerial duels, had no shots, and from 15 passes he completed just five (one was the assist for Sigurdsson, another involved taking a centre, another was a backpass).

Good read overall.
