Tottenham Hotspur were not terrible against Fulham on Wednesday and in fact had plenty of chances, however a poor second half meant another disappointing draw.
After seeming to hit their form again over the last couple of weeks, the disappointing habit of failing to finish a team and preserve a lead again popped up for Tottenham. Despite the unsatisfactory result, some players played well, while others seemed to be along for the ride, and some flat out were not good.
Sergio Reguilón Best of a Bad Bunch
Sergio Reguilón had himself a game on Wednesday. The leftback’s showing was as impressive as any from him have been this season and he has had some good matches. Unlucky not to score early in the game as his weaker right foot let him down twice in the box. Reguilón made up for those misses with a beautiful pass to assist Spurs opener.
Reguilón got behind the defense with a simple long diagonal ball from Pierre Hujbjberg. Reguilón’s touch put the ball perfectly in front of him as he pushed up the wing without losing his stride. As he looked up he saw some white in the box and hung a beautiful curling cross into the box. Just moments after Heung-Min Son had missed a semi-diving header, Harry Kane laid out to meet this cross, getting Reguilón the assist.
Sergio had a couple other nice crosses and scored what he thought was going to be the game winner only to have a flag for offside in the buildup prevent the strike. While the result was disappointing, Reguilón’s performance certainly was not.
