Tottenham fans call for Juan Foyth under ten Hag as on-loan defender shines vs Arsenal

Tottenham fans call for Juan Foyth under ten Hag as on-loan defender shines vs Arsenal

Tottenham’s supporters have flooded to social media this evening, to react to the key role played by on-loan stopper Juan Foyth in Villarreal’s opener vs Arsenal.

Hosts on top

Mikel Arteta and co. are of course currently locked in action with the Yellow Submarine in Spain.

The clash marks a crucial one for both sides, in the semi-finals of this season’s Europa League.

Arsenal, for one, headed into proceedings aware that the club’s European campaign now represents their only chance of salvaging a dismal season to date.

Villarreal, meanwhile, also sit on the outside looking in at the European places in La Liga.

As things stand at the Estadio de la Cerámica, though, it is advantage very much Unai Emery’s hosts. A blitzing opening 45 minutes sees Villarreal 2-0 up, as Arsenal’s season looks in real danger of going up in smoke.

Manu Trigueros opened the scoring inside five minutes, taking advantage of some lax defending down the visitors’ right, to pick out the far corner with a fine strike:

And Arsenal’s woes were compounded just shy of the half-hour mark, when a dangerous corner into the heart of the Gunners’ box was flicked on for Raul Albiol to slot home at the back post:

Foyth praise

As outlined above, though, those of a Villarreal persuasion are not the only ones to have thoroughly enjoyed the action in the east of Spain thus far.

This comes with the Spurs faithful having taken full notice of the role played by Juan Foyth versus their long-time rivals.

Stopper Foyth is on loan at the Ceramica from Tottenham, and was trusted with a starting berth at right-back by Unai Emery this evening.

His rampaging surge out of defence, meanwhile, proved the catalyst in the hosts opening the scoring, as Foyth made his way from inside his own half all the way to the edge of the Arsenal box, before picking out Samu Chukwueze on the wing:

In turn, amid a superb all-round display, droves of Spurs supporters have flooded to social media, with many having even called for their loanee stopper to be brought back to play under managerial candidate Erik ten Hag in north London next season:
