What does Chadli do?

Nacer Chadli

Nacer Chadli has not had a great start to his Spurs career but a reading of the statistics from this weekend’s game points to a new low. He was substituted after 67 minutes but even taking this into account the numbers make depressing reading:

  • He had fewer touches than anyone in our starting eleven with 24. Sigurdsson, his replacement, had only one fewer (23) despite spending almost three times fewer minutes on the pitch. Lennon the next lowest outfield starter had almost double (43) despite also being substituted. Even Lloris had 31.
  • He was equal bottom in passes made (16), and that includes the goalkeeper and our substitutes.
  • Maybe he contributed defensively? The answer is a resounding no, he was our only outfield player not to make a single tackle.

Hopefully Lamela, Townsend and Sigurdsson can return to full fitness soon, or am I judging Chadli too harshly considering his limited playing time so far?
