Tottenham insider makes 'unbelievable' Ndombele claim
Tanguy Ndombele needs to create more moments of magic in the Premier League for Tottenham.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
Ndombele started his third successive Premier League game against Aston Villa on Sunday.
He has worked his way back into Nuno’s plans after he asked to leave the club during the summer.

Wenham was left frustrated with the midfielder’s performance after he was again unable to complete 90 minutes.

“He had moments of being good,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“Then, as always, he tired during the second half. He had one moment of magic feet where he created a chance from a throw-in.
“He twisted and turned through a few players and created a shooting opportunity which went straight at the keeper.
“I don’t think he was unbelievable or anything like what some people have said. He was good.
“He needs to create more. We never replaced Christian Eriksen, we need someone to create chances who will also stop Kane coming so deep.
“He wasn’t amazing like some people have said. Those moments, he doesn’t do it anywhere near enough. That’s what’s annoying.”
Ndombele has failed to register a goal or assist in the Premier League this season.
However, he did bag himself a goal in the club’s EFL Cup win over Wolves two weeks ago.
