Jermaine Jenas said on BBC Radio 5 live Sport on Monday evening (21:25) that Mousa Dembele was the best player in the Premier League game between Tottenham Hotspur and West Bromwich Albion.
Dembele started the match for Tottenham against West Brom at White Hart Lane in North London on Monday evening and played for the entire 90 minutes.
The 28-year-old midfielder took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 92%, created one chance, attempted four dribbles, won 50% of his tackles and 67% of his headers, and made three interceptions, five clearances and two blocks.
The Belgium international’s performance was not enough to guide Tottenham to a win, though, as the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
Former Spurs midfielder Jenas was impressed with the display produced by Dembele and spoke highly of him on BBC Radio 5 live Sport during the game on Monday evening.
"There wasn't a second thought from Mousa Dembele to shoot,” said the former England international on BBC Radio 5 live Sport on Monday evening (21:25) midway through the second half of the match.
“He has been the best player on the pitch tonight. He has been controlled, he has had shots...he's been phenomenal.”
Dembele has scored three goals and created 27 chances in 28 Premier League appearances for Tottenham so far this season.
The former Fulham midfielder has a pass accuracy of 90% and a shot accuracy of 56%, and has won 30 headers, 82 dribbles and 84 tackles.
