Current Hull defender and Sky Sports pundit Curtis Davies has hailed full-back stars Danny Rose and Kyle Walker as being integral to the current Tottenham team.
The pacey duo are considered two of the best full-backs in England due to their pace and ability that allows them to bomb up and down the pitch.
They have played in a total of 49 matches between themselves in all competitions this season, bringing a return of two goals and 10 assists from the wide areas.
Now, Davies has highlighted just how important the pair are to the north London club and he shared that he believes they make the Spurs team “tick.”
“Yeah, they make Spurs tick,” started Davies speaking about Rose and Walker on Wednesday morning’s Premier League Daily show on Sky Sports News.
“Those two have come on leaps and bounds with their game and the way that Pochettino wants to play and they’re integral parts of it.
“They play right high up the pitch, but they’ve got the energy and the pace that when it does breakdown they’re straight back.
“They’re honest enough to play that role and obviously they’re missing Danny Rose at the moment, but (Ben) Davies coming in isn’t a bad replacement, Trippier even coming in isn’t a bad replacement if Walker gets injured.
“They’re blessed with some good full-backs at the moment in Tottenham.”
Both Walker and Rose made the moves to Tottenham in the early stages in their career from Leeds and Sheffield United respectively.
Walker, 26, joined from the Blades in 2009 in a £9million double deal with teammate Kyle Naughton.
Meanwhile, Rose, 26, made the switch from the Whites in 2007 for just £1million.
The duo were key to helping Tottenham achieve a third place finish in the last campaign and Spurs are currently on the way to achieve similar heights as they currently occupy third in England’s top flight.
