Lord Sugar comments on Tottenham Hotspur’s win v Aston Villa in Premier League

Danny Rose Tottenham warmup

Lord Sugar was not pleased with Danny Rose’s performance for Tottenham Hotspur against Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday, and urged manager Mauricio Pochettino to start Harry Kane.

Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Alan Sugar was not a very happy man while watching the game against Aston Villa on Sunday.

North London outfit Spurs won the Premier League clash at Villa Park, but it was not the easiest or the most convincing of victories.

Hosts Villa took the lead as early as the 16th minute through Andreas Weimann, but the dismissal of Christian Benteke in the 65th minute changed the game.

Tottenham took advantage of their numerical superiority and scored twice in the final 10 minutes. Nacer Chadli made it 1-1 on 84 minutes, and six minutes later Harry Kane scored the winner with a deflected free kick.

Lord Sugar had called for Kane to start the match and reiterated his stance to give the youngster more chances after full time.

One player who did not impress Lord Sugar during Sunday’s encounter was Danny Rose. The 67-year-old claimed that the 24-year-old wasted his crosses and also failed to provide good passes.

Do stats back Lord Sugar’s opinion?
