Alan Shearer says £25m Tottenham player was better than anyone on the pitch against Arsenal

Tottenham rested well in yesterday’s north London derby, drawing twice against Arsenal.

James Maddison and Heung-Min Son combined brilliantly twice to bring Tottenham level and could have even taken all three points in the end.

But while Maddison and Son received praise, Alan Shearer felt it was another Tottenham player, Yves Bissouma, who deserved the praise.

Alan Shearer praises Yves Bissouma after Tottenham-Arsenal

Bissouma has received a lot of praise from the media this season for his excellent performances so far with Ange Postecoglou.

And Shearer, who has chosen his latest Premier League team of the week, believes Bissouma was the best midfielder on the pitch against Arsenal on Sunday.

“He was by far the most impressive midfielder in the North London derby. He was transformed under Ange Postecoglou,” Shearer said.

Tottenham paid around £25 million for Bissouma from Brighton and, despite a poor season under Antonio Conte, he now looks like a bargain.

Certainly, the Malian international looks good in Spurs’ midfield at the moment.

There were moments in yesterday’s match where Yves Bissouma looked like a truly world-class midfielder. 

 Went under Conte from a player who was far from ready to one of the best players in Europe at the moment. There simply aren’t many people in the world doing it better right now.

Bissouma looks to be strengthening and will be vital for Spurs if they are to succeed this season.

Rival clubs are already taking note of how good the £15million Tottenham player is this season.

Rival clubs are already noticing how good Tottenham Hotspur youngster Destiny Udogie is.

A report from Football London has provided full details after a thrilling north London derby.

Tottenham will have a happier group of fans today after a thrilling match at the Emirates.

Arsenal started the match on the front foot and took the lead thanks to a deflected shot from Bukayo Saka.

It looked like Cristian Romero couldn’t do anything about either goal, despite him playing a key role in both of Saka’s goals.

At the other end, James Maddison and Son Heung-min combined twice to equalize in both halves and give Ange Postecoglou’s side a valuable point.

There was a lot of focus on how Destiny Udogie would fare in what was supposed to be his toughest test in a Spurs shirt. 

He was shown a yellow card early on for a foul on Saka and he didn’t get close enough to the England international for the opening goal.

However, he is unsurprising that clubs are starting to pay attention to Udogie after the Tottenham defender kept him quiet in the second half.

Football London’s report suggests that “people outside Tottenham are starting to notice how good the 20-year-old Italian is.”

Udogie was signed for £15 million last summer before being loaned out to Udinese for the rest of the season.

He was initially seen as a predatory full-back in Italy who should have perfectly suited Antonio Conte’s tactics.

However, the Italian coach was sacked and there were concerns within the club about his ability to adapt to a completely new system.

Udogie has proven this season against some big Premier League clubs that he will be Tottenham’s main left-back for the rest of the season.

He has changed Tottenham’s defensive line alongside Micky Van de Ven and looks good in attack and defense.

Udogie also penetrates the midfield well and takes responsibility in a crowded part of the field.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright even admitted he was delighted to see Udogie yesterday and said he would have been impressed by the young defender in the second half.
