Joey Barton has told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, which was broadcast on TalkSPORT on 12th February, that he does not believe Ben Davies has got enough credit for his role in Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Arsenal.
Davies swung in a wonderful cross for Harry Kane to convert, with a powerful header.
Kane has taken much of the acclaim for the goal, as the Spurs striker powered above Laurent Koscielny to put the ball in to the back of the net.
But Barton feels that Davies’ cross should have got more credit.
He said: “I don’t think Davies is getting enough credit for the ball in. It was a brilliant ball.”
Does Davies deserve more praise?
Davies’ improvements at Spurs have, perhaps, gone slightly under the radar this season.
The Welsh international has never really been given a great amount of credit for his attacking play, but his cross was pin-point for Kane to head in.
Davies was a constant threat during Spurs’ match against Arsenal, and has been in excellent form recently, with his performance against Manchester United also highly impressive.
Davies looks set to remain in Spurs' line-up for their Champions League match against Juventus in midweek.
