Tanguy Ndombele provides hope for Spurs in Rennes draw


Tottenham have scored targets beneath Nuno Espirito Santo, however they’ve labored onerous at it generally.

Blessed with the most effective finishes on the planet in Harry Kane, Spurs have but to determine easy methods to really get the ball to him sufficient. They have lacked creativity in abundance to this point, so when Tanguy Ndombele was taken again to the beginning line-up for Thursday’s assembly with Rennes, there was hope that Nuno can have discovered his reply.

Did he? Well, not precisely.

Apparently he was fidgeting with a chip on his shoulder after seeing that his exile ended, Ndombele got here out like a home on fireplace. He related with Kane and the remainder of his teammates so effectively early on, and his pretty woman within the build-up to Lucas Moura’s deflected opener had the followers in her mouth.

And then he made a Ndombele.

For the remaining half-hour of the primary half, Ndombele was virtually non-existent. Maybe he lacked health – his final begin got here on April 21 – or possibly he remains to be struggling to seek out a technique to make most effort 100% of the time.

Despite the overwhelming finish of the half, Ndombele was nonetheless Spurs’ greatest midfielder and deservedly continued the second half, the place he once more began in excellent kind.

His connecting play with Kane was proven once more as he labored his approach into the field for a very good probability, and he continued to bend his physicality and ability as he tried to get one thing going for Spurs, albeit with a really subversive finish product.

The expertise is there. That’s the place. Just discover easy methods to preserve it.

At his first begin beneath Nuno, Ndombele deserves somewhat slack. He remains to be attempting to determine a brand new system and can be constructing himself up after a busy summer time.

More necessary was that the promising indicators had been there. He needed to return ahead and get probably the most out of Kane’s taking part in pattern. Ndombele made a degree of attempting to be his facet’s spark, and it isn’t misplaced on Nuno.

In a midfield with Harry Winks or Oliver Skipp extending the lifetime of the opponents and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg doing every thing ahead, certainly one of Ndombele’s abilities is completely essential.

He proved that he’s prepared for the position, however till he solutions the questions on his consequence, the doubts about Ndombele will proceed to linger.
