Darren Bent has ripped into Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez after his performance against Manchester United on Wednesday night.

The former Spurs and England striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says that he has not seen a worse display from the Colombian since his time in England.

The 23-year-old lined up alongside Toby Alderweireld at the heart of the defence but were undone by a Marcus Rashford double in a 2-1 defeat, the striker’s second coming from the penalty spot.

Having watched the former Ajax man struggle on Jose Mourinho’s return to Old Trafford, Bent says that the saving grace is that Sanchez is young enough to work on his game.

Bent told Football Insider: “Davinson Sanchez, that’s probably the worst I’ve seen him play, he didn’t look great to me. 

“He is only young and he will get better. It was tough for him against Manchester United and that whole back five – including the goalkeeper – I think Mourinho will change it all up, or at least try to, in January.

“Maybe sign a centre-half, maybe a full-back.”

Sanchez has been a regular among the first-team this season, featuring not only as a centre-back but as a right-back under former boss Mauricio Pochettino.

He has played 16 times across all competitions this season, with 11 of those appearances coming among the starting XI in the Premier League.

Tottenham have kept just one clean sheet in the top flight all season, while all four of Mourinho’s games in charge have seen the Lilywhites concede twice.

In other Tottenham news, Darren Bent suggests that Mourinho could dip into the transfer market to replace a mainstay who was “bullied” against Manchester United.
