Tottenham Hotspur: A staggering Stambouli stat from his cameo debut

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Benjamin Stambouli impressed in his short time on the pitch against Sunderland.

New Tottenham signing Benjamin Stambouli did not have much time to make an impression on his debut, so made every minute count.

On the field for the final 20 minutes at the Stadium of Light, Stambouli managed to make the joint highest number of tackles among Tottenham midfielders, with four.

  Won TacklesMins
Mousa Dembélé 4 90
Benjamin Stambouli 4 20
Etienne Capoue 2 90
Nacer Chadli 2 70
Erik Lamela 2 90
Christian Eriksen 1 86

The 24-year-old signing from Montpellier in the process threw himself into contention for a start in the next game against West Brom.

Only three players made more tackles than Stambouli in France's Ligue 1 last season, and he has managed to show in just 20 minutes that he will have little trouble adjusting to Premier League football.
