Wednesday evening’s EFL Cup victory over West Ham United at the fourth round stage certainly had its talking points. Whether it was Son Heung-Min being back to his best with a brace, Fernando Llorente hitting the back of the net, Kyle Walker-Peters getting a run out – a big one was centre-half Juan Foyth’s first appearance of the 2018/19 campaign.
A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans had been championing his involvement ever since the decision was taken to not loan him out over the summer – Leeds United speculation was just that but I’m sure we could’ve found a suitor for the talented 20-year-old.
In any event, he came into manager Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI for this tie and more than played his part in booking our place in the quarter-finals and a tie against Arsenal.

He also more than admirably did his job on the evening as well much to the delight of many.
Foyth & Gazza are our future, surely.

Such a promising player. We've got to give him more game time. Has the ability pace and footwork to play DM and allow Dier have a break.
