Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to revel in the praise for midfielder Mousa Dembele.
Mauricio Pochettino labelled the midfielder a ‘genius’ following his starring display in the north London derby draw with Arsenal at the weekend.
Dembele, 29, won Tottenham the penalty that helped them earn an important point against their biggest rivals and maintain their unbeaten run.
He was brought down in the box by defender Laurent Koscielny after a surging solo run.
Former Spurs midfielder Danny Murphy has already matched Pochettino’s praise, and now the White Hart Lane faithful can’t stop singing his praises.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
