Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been quoted as saying by The Express that Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele is unique.

The former Liverpool and England international midfielder has outlined how Dembele can embarrass his opponents.

The Express quotes Gerrard as saying about Dembele: “He’s a unique midfielder because normally midfielders they try and combine around you with a one-two and then they’ll run.

“But he can embarrass you by skill and no footballer likes that whether you’re a defender or a midfielder.”

Underrated?

Dembele has been on the books of Tottenham since the summer of 2012 when he joined from Fulham for a transfer fee reported by The Daily Mail to be worth £15 million.

The 30-year-old has had injury concerns during his time at Spurs, but there is no doubt that when he is fit, the midfielder is superb.

An all-around midfield player who is not afraid to take on opposition players and run at them, the Belgium international is probably underrated.

Dembele will be a key player for Tottenham for the rest of the season, as the North London outfit aim to finish in the top four of the Premier League.

Spurs are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 58 points from 29 matches.
