Emerson 'going under the radar' at Tottenham after 'remarkable' reveal - Campbell
Emerson Royal’s performances at Tottenham have been “going under the radar”, according to Kevin Campbell.
The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, backed the “top” 22-year-old to prove his class in north London.
Emerson starred in Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Leeds United on Sunday but his fellow wing-back Sergio Reguilon scooped the man of the match award.

Campbell claimed the statistic is “remarkable” considering the Spurs right-back has only started eight Premier League fixtures this term.
“I think his performances are going under the radar a little bit,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.

“I’ve been watching him since he was at Betis and he is a really good player. He has a lot to offer.
“It has taken him a little while to settle. But, ooh I must say, that tackle stat just goes to show that he is adapting.
“It’s remarkable for the amount of games he’s played. It shows that he is physical, sticks a foot in and can get up and down.
“He has gone under the radar a little bit. He is a top player and I think he will prove that at Spurs.”
Tottenham signed Emerson from Barcelona in a £25.7million deal at the end of August.
He has made 13 appearances across all competitions for the Lilywhites.
