While Leeds ultimately came away with nothing from their trip to North London on Sunday, it was one of the more promising performances of the season so far. Tottenham eventually came from behind to win 2-1 but, for an hour, it wouldn’t be unfair to say that the visitors were probably the better team. Appearing on Match of the Day 2, Conor Coady picked out two Whites players for special praise.
Conor Coady said: “I think the way [Diego] Llorente got ultra tight to Son, we all know what a world-class player he is and how big he is to Spurs, but Llorente got across to him well. Everybody went man-to-man, they’re not scared to leave space and the centre-halves were brave enough to go and jump in. I thought Kalvin [Phillips] was outstanding, especially first-half he was brilliant with Kane up top. But I thought Llorente was a big, big part of it with how aggressive he was with Son. He was always behind him and always close enough to him to put him under pressure. It was a huge part of his game and his timing was lovely.”
