Forget Bissouma, the 24-year-old is now Tottenham’s most improved player under Ange Postecoglou

After yesterday’s north London derby, it’s safe to say that Pedro Porro is now Tottenham’s most improved player under Ange Postecoglou.

There was plenty of praise for another performance that exuded defensive responsibility alongside Porro’s usual offensive production.

Many thought Porro might fail if he played a deeper right-back role, but the opposite happened.
Ange Postecoglou now has two full-backs alongside Destiny Udogie that he can count on for the foreseeable future.

Of course, Porro was initially brought in to play an attacking full-back role under Antonio Conte last season.

The Spain international showed a lot of skill in moving the ball forward, but was often questioned in defence.

Furthermore, this meant that Porro was often benched, despite the hefty £39m Spurs paid to sign him.

However, under Postecoglou, Porro now appears to be a changed player for Tottenham.

Many have improved under the new manager, just look at Yves Bissouma yesterday at the Emirates, but none more than Porro.

The 24-year-old can now be a pillar of this new era of Spurs. Porro should now be an ever-present player in Postecoglou’s Tottenham

Especially looking at yesterday, Porro’s work was made easier by the lack of ball from Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard.
However, this should not detract from his performance.

Porro’s behavior and attitude on the pitch will certainly convince Tottenham fans too.

The Spaniard showed steely determination, similar to his teammate Cristian Romero.

And even though the latter had a difficult day yesterday, the future looks promising for the entire back four.

Few could have imagined, including Postecoglou, that Tottenham could have four such regular players, including Porro.

But with this Spurs team yet to taste defeat in the league, fans will now have high ambitions for what they can achieve.
