Gary Neville hails 'fantastic' Spurs; highlights two key aspects of play

Gary Neville has had his say on Tottenham Hotspur's performance against Arsenal.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville appeared to be as impressed as the rest of us with the way Tottenham Hotspur ultimately overcame Arsenal this weekend.

Tottenham defeated the Gunners 2-1 at White Hart Lane, after Mesut Ozil’s opening goal was cancelled out by a Harry Kane brace.

The on-fire striker has now scored 22 goals this season and he looks on course for a phenomenal final tally, but it was not just the forward Neville was impressed by.

Taking to Twitter during the match, the former Manchester United player wrote, “This is fantastic from Spurs. Fast football with quality.”

The fact that Neville highlighted those two key areas was interesting. After all, playing swift football is one thing but doing so with real quality is a trick many clubs fail to master.

But Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has got his side playing with both style and confidence and that paid off in fantastic fashion at White Hart Lane.

There is still plenty of football to be played this season, but at this rate Tottenham have a realistic chance of qualifying for the top four; especially if they keep playing in the way that so impressed Neville this weekend.
