Tom Carroll made more touches than any other Tottenham player in their win over FK Qarabag.
Tom Carroll was heavily involved as Tottenham Hotspur recorded a 3-1 win over Azerbaijani side FK Qarabag.
The central midfielder was making his first start of the season, having played only 18 minutes of Premier League football as a substitute.
Carroll spent last season on loan at Swansea City, and is hopeful of earning a regular spot in Mauricio Pochettino's side.
His confident display in possession should push him into contention, and at the very least ensure a start in next week's Capital One Cup game with Arsenal.
Here is a look at his Europa League display by the numbers...
109 Touches: Carroll was in possession more than any other player on the pitch. Dele Alli by comparison had 62, with Toby Alderweireld the closest to him (81).
89 Passes: Likewise no other player got near Carroll's volume of passing. The nearest midfielder was Eric Dier (49).
8 Tackles: The midfielder made more tackles than any of his teammates. The closest were Eric Dier and Erik Lamela whose four each combined matched Carroll's.
1 Interception: This was less to shout about, with Carroll eclipsed in this area by Dele Alli (3).
1 Shot: Carroll had one shot at goal but it landed off target. Andros Townsend was the only starting midfielder not to make an attempt.
0 Key Passes: Despite Carroll's 89 passes, not one of them created a goalscoring opportunity. This is the biggest drawback to his performance, while he was heavily involved, was it in the right area to make enough of an impression?
