Gylfi Sigurdsson outshone by Tottenham's Eriksen on Sunday... but not Chadli

How the Swansea midfielder compared with his former Tottenham Hotspur team-mates.

Gylfi Sigurdsson was up against his former club on Sunday afternoon as Tottenham traveled to Swansea City.

Both sides ultimately played out a 2-2 draw in an entertaining encounter and the away fans would no doubt have relished the chance to see their former midfielder in action once aagain.

It's a little late to discuss whether Tottenham should have kept the Swansea midfielder, of course, even though many fans may still utter their regret.

But it's still interesting to compare the 26-year-old with those who remained at White Hart Lane at his expense...

Dele Alli 1 10 35 3 70 90
Gylfi Sigurdsson 1 9 22 0 33 75

And, as Opta stats show, a relatively quiet performance from Sigurdsson saw him completely outshone by Christian Eriksen.

Without mentioning the fact the Dane scored twice from free-kicks, the Tottenham man also created one more chance than his Swansea counterpart, completed far more passes, won two more dribbles and also took almost double the amount of touches.

Sigurdsson was more on par with Erik Lamela statistically, who many felt had a good game but was hooked after 57 minutes.

One man the 26-year-old did do better than, however, was Nacer Chadli. Indeed, despite the Belgian playing out wide for Spurs, he only managed 24 touches, six final-third passes and 14 passes overall...
