Girona vs Tottenham
Tottenham played their final pre-season friendly on Saturday night in Spain against Girona.
Girona were one of the surprise teams in the 2017-18 La Liga season.
And after Mauricio Pochettino named an unfamiliar XI on Saturday, Tottenham fans could have predicted they’d be in for a hard game.
The first half was full of action, starting with a superb free-kick from Lucas Moura to put Tottenham in front.
Juanpe levelled for Girona in the 22nd minute, while the hosts took the lead in the 34th minute through Anthony Lozano.
Danny Rose vs Ben Davies
Of the few first team players in the Spurs XI, Ben Davies started at left-back.
However Davies looked unfit and extremely slow as Girona took the lead in the match.
Davies, despite having a significant head start on the Girona right-winger, ended up losing a footrace.
As a result, Girona were able to score their second of the game.
Is Davies good enough? Should he really be above Danny Rose in the pecking order?
According to the rumour mill, Danny Rose is up for sale this summer. However some Spurs fans are calling for Rose to start at left back over Davies this season.
Ben Davies had an aaaaaaabsolute nightmare here. https://t.co/WImkNw2RD4
