Ben Davies reflects on 'strange feeling' of playing old club Swansea

Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies has reflected on facing old club Swansea.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies has admitted it was odd for him facing old side Swansea City.

The left-back started for Spurs and produced a superb tackle on Wilfried Bony, to possibly prevent his old club from scoring an extra goal during Tottenham’s 2-1 win yesterday.

While his form is slowly improving for Tottenham, he’s admitted that facing Swansea isn’t something he’s used to.

“It was a strange feeling being in the away dressing room,” Davies is quoted by the BBC.

“One I'm not quite sure I was used to but at the end of the day we had a job to do and we were very happy with the three points.”

“It was quite an emotional feeling [walking onto the pitch] with all the Swans fans being as good as they were to me and it's one that I really, really appreciated.”

Davies moved to Tottenham along with Michel Vorm in a deal which saw Gylfi Sigurdsson heading in the opposite direction.

He initially struggled to gain a place in the first team under Mauricio Pochettino but he’s since dislodged Danny Rose to become the club’s starting left-back in the Premier League.

His superb tackle wasn’t the only positive aspect of his performance as he also provided the assist which led to Christian Eriksen’s winger.

The Welshman pinged a ball into the feet of the Dane who created some space for himself before slotting his shot into the corner.

As far as Pochettino and Spurs fans are concerned, long may his form continue.
