‘Other class’: BBC pundit names Tottenham player who was ‘outstanding’ against Manchester United

Chris Waddle has praised Tottenham Hotspur’s defensive midfielder Yves Bissouma for his performance against Erik ten Hags Manchester United.

That’s what the former Tottenham Hotspur player said BBC Sports Yves Bissouma was “a different class” in Saturday night’s Premier League game against Manchester United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Spurs beat United 2-0 at home in the league today.

Pape Matar Sarr scored Tottenham’s first goal in the 49th minute.

Ben Davies secured the points for Spurs with the second goal in the 83rd minute.

Praise for Yves Bissouma for Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United

Bissouma started the game for Tottenham in defensive midfield alongside Pape Matar Sarr.

And he was great.

The 26-year-old held his own in midfield, pushed the side in attack, participated in attacking thrusts, didn’t bring much joy to United’s attackers and was simply unplayable at times.

It was another brilliant performance from Bissouma, who failed to join then-head coach Antonio Conte’s side last season after moving from Brighton and Hove Albion in the summer of 2022.

Waddle said of Bissouma: “Bissouma was a different class today.

“Under the previous managers none of them wanted to play against him.

“Today he proved his technical quality, but he lacked the finish.

“But last week and this week he was outstanding.”

Tottenham have started the new Premier League season on a strong note and one of the main reasons for that is Bissouma’s form and performances.
