Paul Robinson feels let down by Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez despite his “exceptional” performance against Burnley.
But the former White Hart Lane number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the 24-year-old’s inconsistency makes him a “frustrating” player to watch.
Sanchez produced a colossal display on Sunday, as Spurs climbed to eighth in the table with a 4-0 win over the Clarets.
He completed 88 per cent of his attempted passes, won 79 per cent of his duels and made 10 interceptions to help Jose Mourinho’s side keep a clean sheet. (Wyscout)
It was the first time the Colombia international had started four consecutive Premier League games since the beginning of October.
When asked for his assessment of Sanchez’s performance against Burnley, Robinson told Football Insider:
“That is why Davinson Sanchez is frustrating, he has a lack of concentration. He is prone to an error.
“We saw his attributes at the weekend against Burnley, in what was a tough physical challenge. They test you from set plays and from crosses. It is always a battle against Burnley and I thought Sanchez did exceptionally well.
“I thought that Spurs performance gave a lot of hope for the rest of the season. Things looked like they clicked into place. I thought they were outstanding.”
Speaking on his side’s defensive display, Mourinho said: “I think the team played well defensively, it was a good compromise from the team.
“Davinson played a very good game, very dominant, fresh, didn’t play the last match and he was very good.”
