Regular readers know I’m not a huge fan of the Welshman. However, he deserves credit for the way he played today. He still wasn’t a dynamic force going forward, but it was his best performance in quite a while.
Davies provided his teammates with a solid performance against Everton. He misplaced a few passes early, but grew into the match very nicely. He was strong and confident on the ball for long passages of play. Additionally, he kept Seamus Coleman pretty quiet for most of the match.
This may be about as well as Davies can play, but he deserves credit for coming up big in an important match for Tottenham.

Leighton Baines is going to have nightmares about Kyle Walker. Spurs’ English right back didn’t make anything concrete happen with his forays into the final third, but he was a handful for Baines all match long.
Walker epitomized the idea that the best defense is a good offense. His willingness to attack Everton kept the left side of their attack pinned back for most of the match. It wasn’t so much what Walker really did, it was the threat of his runs that made the Toffees attack one-sided.
