How did the Tottenham Hotspur player fare in his latest match for loan club Sunderland?
Last weekend it is fair to say Tottenham Hotspur player DeAndre Yedlin had a game to forget for his loan club Sunderland.
The same can be said for all his Black Cats teammates, as Sam Allardyce’s side crashed to a 6-2 defeat at the hands of Everton, but how did the USA international fare a week on?
Sunderland switched from the back three that had been torn apart by the Toffees to a 4-4-2 formation and the Black Cats looked far more solid against Southampton with Yedlin putting in a good shift.
However, that was still not enough to prevent Sunderland from losing 1-0, with Dusan Tadic scoring the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.
Yedlin has barely featured for Tottenham since arriving from Seattle Sounders, so it was always going to take him time to get up to speed in the Premier League and show what he can do at the Stadium of Light.
This weekend the 22-year-old’s most notable contribution was a brave header to clear Jose Fonte’s effort off the line and Tottenham fans watching will have been impressed with his commitment to the cause.
After the match we took to Twitter to see what Sunderland fans thought of Yedlin’s latest performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
@potts93 Yedlin has been better than I expected. Thought Kaboul did ok as well.— Robbie (@Robert_S_Sweet) November 7, 2015
