On his first appearance this campaign, coming
in his homeland against Stade Rennais, there was
no mistaking the artistry and ingenuity he carries,
especially when he produced a stunning backheel
under pressure to set us on the way to opening
the scoring. He then impressed on an ultimately
disappointing day against Chelsea before
brilliantly opening his account for the season in
our Carabao Cup third round win over Wolves.
I FEEL READY
ALL THAT I’M
Having started the campaign in the number
six role, in recent weeks the midfielder has been
pushed forward into the number 10 berth where
his performances have undoubtedly gone up
a notch further – especially in our 3-2 win over
Newcastle United as he produced a masterclass
in midfield with near complete control of
proceedings. He again found the back of the net
in that game.
“I think that was one of my best performances
for the Club,” he admitted as he discussed his
display at St James’ Park. “But at the end of the
day, it was a really good team performance too.
“Personally, I approached and played it as I
would any other match – I think it is because of the
good preparation of the coach and the team that
put me in a position to be able to play like that.
Of course, I hope the best is still to come from
me but, to get there, you have to work really hard
and that’s what’s in front of me now. Right now, I
feel ready with my football and that’s all that I’m
concentrating on as we prepare for what’s ahead.”
One of the other standout performances of his
Spurs career so far came against this evening’s
opponents Manchester United, who we host at
Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the first time in
front of supporters.
Just over 12 months ago, we made the trip
to the north west to take on United on the back
of – much like this year – a mixed start to the
season. We had begun the campaign with a

again having drawn 1-1 with Newcastle United
following a late, late leveller from the visitors.
Two minutes into the game at Old Trafford,
it then looked as if it was going to be another
difficult day for us in the league as Bruno
Fernandes put the Red Devils ahead from the
spot. However, within two minutes, Tanguy had
us level before Heung-Min Son put us ahead
with just seven minutes played. Anthony Martial
then saw red for the hosts before the floodgates
opened with Harry Kane and then Sonny once
more scoring prior to the break.

SIMPLY 11 V 11.
Second-half goals from Serge Aurier and
Harry then put the icing on the cake as we
cantered to a 6-1 win over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s
men – a result that helped to form a run of 11
games unbeaten for us in the league.
That day, the team’s performance was
imperious, including Tanguy, who was everywhere
for us at the Theatre of Dreams. Despite that
result though, and United’s recent struggles, the
Frenchman doesn’t expect such a one-sided affair
this evening but is obviously determined to see us
edge past the Red Devils in front of our fans.
“It was a really great day for us to win 6-1 at
Old Trafford, albeit with them getting the red
card. It was a really important result though in the
context of the season,” he reflected. “At the end
of the day though, this evening will be a match
like any other. I see it as simply 11 v 11. Manchester
United are a really strong team, but we go into it
hoping to get a result.”
