    Delighted for him, massive game to make your debut and thought he did really well.

    Has demonstrated that he should be part of the team. Would recommend we do same with other players.

    his speed and strength were very handy, just got caught for the goal we gave up

    good performance, liked the look of him since pre-season in Singapore

    Did well today, and should've had Mane booked and Robertson sent off if the ref had any compentence or objectivity.

    Him and Sanchez could be a good partnership. Potentially we're looking at a back four of Foyth, Tanganga, Sanchez and Sessegnon in the future.

    Need to build the team around him, Sanchez, Ndombele and Sessengnon.

    Did well for making his debut in such a high profile match, out of position as well. Showed that he has the physical attributes that are needed with strength and pace, and showed some good defensive antipation at times, saving that early shor and blocking a couple of dangerous ball into our box.

    I think he is too limited on the ball to ever become a top player though.

    Genuinely tough call there mate, care to elaborate?

    Was good in pre-season, good pretty much every game he's played, doesn't seem out of place

    Similar to moving on from Eriksen, I'd do the same with Vertonghen.

    We're unlikely to finish top 4 now and need to be planning for a new era

    There is not too much to elaborate on. I think he lacks technical ability and passing ability. He could develop, of course, but at 20 I think he is unlikely to become much better in that department. He did well defensively today, but he misplaced some simple passes and looked uncomfortable on the ball. A potential center back partnership of Tanganga and Sanchez would just not be technically good enough for me if we want to build from the back. What is not often talked about with Alderweireld and Vertonghen, but has been very important for us in recent years, is that they can play from the back and start our attacks with a bit of quality.

    Undoubtedly a very good prem debut. He looks strong, assured, and importantly didn't look nervous.

    I thought he looked good on the ball (better than Sanchez looks most of the time).

    With Toby being chosen to stay on he can mentor the young guys, the young guys who now need to be selected as much as possible. Tanganga definitely so.

    Looked very composed and assured. Certainly didn’t look out of place. Well done. He’s earned another start.

    Yes, I'd agree. Think he's an excellent prospect. He needs to be in/around the first team all the time. I'd start him on Tues and would be more confident now of letting JV go in Jan, regardless of incomings.

    Sanchez is pretty dodgy on the ball in my view. Tanganga seemed quite confident, as well as being quicker

    Really stood up today, very impressive from the Tanga. Noticeable that he was aggressive in his movements e.g. Mane dropped off and Tanga went chasing after him i.e. he didn't stay in a back line, he dropped in and chased Mane. Presumably under instruction to do so, because Mane/Salad/Firminho love to drop into the gaps.

    At half time Michael Owen on South African TV said he would have hated to play against a defender like Tanga, always hassling and chasing you down, never a moment's peace... then Tim Sherwood started blathering on about how negative we had been, and how we should go toe-to-toe and take the game to Liverpool...



    I didn't notice any real negatives, so I'm happy to keep him on the pitch for a while... I feel like Foyth and Tanga could be brilliant if given the chance, but will Jose put them in the bin?
