Tottenham Hotspur's Paulo Gazzaniga during the pre-match warm-up

Tottenham Hotspur star Paulo Gazzaniga is performing at a level nobody thought possible right now.

The Argentine made a fantastic point blank save with his feet against Red Star Belgrade to deny what seemed like a certain goal.

The first half stop was a game changing moment and set up a 4-0 victory.

Gazzaniga is playing at a level where he looks far more than just an able deputy.

 

He is playing like he can be Tottenham's first choice goalkeeper on a regular basis.

Hugo Lloris is out until 2020, but the way Gazzaniga is playing, Tottenham might have a selection problem.

Gazzaniga has the potential to keep Lloris out, and become Tottenham's long term number one.

Last night's performance came on the back of a superb performance at Anfield against Liverpool.

When the Argentine signed from Southampton, he was brought in as third choice.

Some suspected he might not ever end up playing a first team game.

Now he is a legitimate contender to replace World Cup winner Hugo Lloris and he has another couple of months to continue to build his increasingly impressive case.
