Expert names five 'insane' Tottenham stars whose futures are now secure after doubt
Emerson Royal, Eric Dier, Cristian Romero, Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon will all be at Tottenham next season after impressive against Liverpool.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
The five defenders all started as Tottenham secured a creditable draw at Anfield on Saturday (7 May).
Sessegnon also registered the assist for Heung-Min Son’s opener during a performance in which, according to Wenham, he “barely put a foot wrong”.
Wenham claims the entire defence was “outstanding” as they came up against “the best team in the world football”.
“We went to who I believe to be the best team in world football and they needed to win to stay in the title race,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“We absolutely stood up to them, to a man. The entire back five were outstanding.
“I’m so proud of them, especially the guys who I have criticised before. Sessegnon and Royal barely put a foot wrong.
“They were outstanding. The back three were incredible. Romero pulled off a diving header in the second half which just summed up everything I love about him.
“Dier was amazing as always and shoutout to Ben Davies who held his own against some really good attackers.
“The evolution of those players has been insane and maybe they could all stay next season.
“I think we are so close to having a team that can really push on in the league.
“You just wonder where those performances were in those home losses to Wolves and Southampton.”
