Andoni Iraola names three Tottenham players who amazed him this season

Andoni Iraola has named the three Tottenham Hotspur players who amazed him during their win over Bournemouth earlier in the season.

At the Vitality Stadium back in August, goals from James Maddison and Dejan Kulusevski gave Spurs the three points. Maddison moved to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer, and this was his first goal in a competitive game for the team.

These days, Bournemouth is a totally different team. Under Antonio Iraola, the Cherries took a while to get going; they didn’t win a Premier League match until the end of October. However, they have won six of their previous seven games and drawn one since then, displaying incredible form.

Andoni Iraola praises Tottenham trio after win back in August

Certainly, Ange Postecoglou and his side will not be taking them lightly today when they meet in North London.

Of course, Maddison remains sidelined. And Yves Bissouma is suspended. And Iraola might see that as a big boost having praised what the pair, along with Destiny Udogie, did in the previous meeting.

“I recall the Spurs game,” which was a 2-0 home loss in August. I thought we played extremely well and put them in tough spots, but they had players like Madison, Bissouma, and Udogie who were making incredible plays from really bad places. “And you say, ‘Woah, we’re getting them into the places we want to go, and even then they’re finding ways to counter,'” he said in an interview with The Times.

“That was the instant I realized we needed to be extremely clinical in order to compete in this league,” However, “This is the reason I am here.” because you want to play against the greatest players and coaches in the world.

Spurs face massive task trying to secure a repeat result

Iraola’s remarks do contribute to encapsulating Tottenham’s season thus far. At the beginning of the season, Maddison scored three goals and dished out five assists, and they were on a roll.

In the meantime, following a challenging debut season with the team, Bissouma appeared to be back to his best.

But in the past several months, Tottenham has lost a number of important players to injuries. And as a result, getting outcomes has become considerably more difficult.

Out of the last four, they have won three. However, few Spurs supporters will be as excited as they likely would have been when the teams last played given Bournemouth’s current run.
