Tottenham Hotspur managed to beat Barnsley 1-0 in Carabao Cup action last night.
Tottenham Hotspur fans have generally been impressed by the display of Juan Foyth on debut.
Foyth was selected to start by Mauricio Pochettino, during Tottenham’s Carabao Cup match against Barnsley.
Although tougher tests will lie ahead for the young defender, Foyth came through his first appearance with his reputation enhanced.
Spurs won the match 1-0, and Foyth looked very comfortable throughout the fixture.
The 19-year-old was strong in possession, and also showed some excellent defensive skill – as he helped Tottenham keep a clean-sheet against their Championship opponents.
And Spurs fans have moved to praise Foyth on social media website Twitter after the contest.
Simple opponents for sure but Foyth display tonight very good.— THFC1976 (@THFCsince76) September 20, 2017
Played well mate. Brought the ball out from the back a couple of times and looks accomplished.— El Choppo Choppo (@chopchop16) September 20, 2017
Left exposed a couple of times mind.
He looked decent; cool display for a Wembley debut at such a young age.— Chunky (@ChunkyTHFC) September 19, 2017
Foyth was amazing tonight he is so confident on the ball. So was Winks and Dembele. Sissoko is improving. Walker Peters did well also. #COYS— (@Harps1981) September 19, 2017
Not a free flowing affair but confident start from Foyth in a game far from easy to come into and such assurance from KWP belying his age— Lilywhite Rose (@lilywhite_rose) September 19, 2017
Back from the game. Foyth looked great— Spurs Are Us (@SpursAreUs) September 19, 2017
Foyth looks likely to have a reserve role to play this season, with Spurs’ backline already very settled.
Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen have a firm grip on the starting places in Pochettino’s line-up.
Tottenham are next in action when they take on West Ham United in the Premier League.
