In an unprecedented summer, the top four Premier League teams decided to spend heavily to recruit new goalkeepers. Manchester United spent 51 million to bring in Andre Onana, Arsenal eliminated Aaron Ramsdale to make room for David Raya and Chelsea recruited Robert Sanchez from Brighton. Meanwhile, Tottenham chose Vicario as Hugo Lloris’s successor.
It can be said that 3 of the 4 rookies mentioned above all delivered unstable performances, except for the Spurs contract.
In the last match, Vicario continued to show his value, even when he had to go into the net to pick up the ball 4 times.
In the first half, Vicario made an excellent save to deny Nicolas Jackson the equalizer. Then on the 11 meter mark, he correctly judged his intention, even touching the ball after a shot from Cole Palmer. If he was luckier, perhaps the former Empoli player would have had a super save in this match.
The rookie from Villarreal has received a lot of criticism for his unfortunate situations in front of the opponent’s goal. However, Jackson seems to be a mandatory choice for Mauricio Pochettino in the context that Christopher Nkunku cannot return.
In the recent clash, the Senegalese star continued to miss opportunities, but he finally got what he needed when the opponent had to play with a few players.
Although the hat-trick is not too impressive, it can bring great encouragement to Jackson in the next journey.
The Argentine captain had a memorable return day at Tottenham Stadium. The victory will strengthen Chelsea’s ambition to compete for the title this season as they have just slowed down the advancement of the top team.
After the referee consulted VAR technology and gave Romero a red card, the audience at Tottenham Stadium gave applause as a word of encouragement for the Argentine star, but it was also recognition of the decision for the referee. black shirt king.
Romero is considered a key factor in the Spurs defense, but this player has also repeatedly brought harm to the home team with his bad situations and tricks.
The moment he was sent off was also the turning point in the match, when Chelsea began to rise thanks to their numerical advantage.
For a coach, things couldn’t get any worse. Cristian Romero – rested 3 matches. Destiny Udogie – also suspended. James Maddison – possible injury. Micky van de Ven – definitely injured.
It can be seen that Postecoglou’s “honeymoon” has ended in an extremely short period of time. In the near future, he and his students will have to embark on a difficult journey when they have to face Wolves, Aston Villa and especially Manchester City in the coming rounds.
