Graham Roberts delivers Twitter verdict on dynamic Tottenham duo
By Danny Wright
Graham Roberts has taken to Twitter to talk up Tottenham duo Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama.
The 57-year-old is looking for his former club to end the season on a high as they look set to achieve a finish in the Champions League qualification spots.
The dynamic midfielders have earned a lot of plaudits this season for their hard work in the engine room of Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield.
While Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen receive a lot of the praise for supplying the assists and banging in the goals, the deeper lying midfielders have earned little media recognition this season.

Roberts won two FA Cups and the 1984 UEFA Cup in his six-year stay at Tottenham before moving on to play for the likes of Chelsea, Rangers and West Brom.
The ex-England international’s praise of Wanyama and Dembele will go down well with supporters who have enjoyed watching the pair take command of the midfield throughout the season.
Wanyama has started every one of Spurs’ league games this season after signing from Southampton in the summer.
His Belgian teammate Dembele has also been a star feature of Pochettino’s midfield and has made 28 appearances across domestic tournaments and two European competitions.
Spurs return to league action on Saturday following the international break when they face a tough trip to Burnley.
