Cristian Romero great performance for Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester City


Cristian Romero had a great performance for Tottenham Hotspur in their 3-2 win vs. Manchester City.

Romero was one of the best players on the pitch, despite giving away a penalty. The Argentine played all 90 minutes and his positioning and his tackling ability were reflected in the numbers. According to Argentidata, the defender was number one in many aspects.

Cristian Romero between the Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City playere:

1st in accurate passes (35/38)
1st in clearances (7)
1st in header clearances (5)
1st in accurate long passes (4/6)
1st in interceptions (2)

Missing 10 matches due to a hamstring injury, he has played three Premier League matches since returning and has been stellar in all three. The 23 year old joined Tottenham on loan from Atalanta in the summer.


  1. One of the biggest mistakes of the national team was not calling Papu earlier when he was at his prime. With Papu and De Paul as central midfielders, Nicolas Gonzalez/Ocampos as left winger in a 433 or Papu and Di Maria as playmakers in a 442 both work.

  2. Cuti romero is a very gentleman.i saw the full match.when rubin diaz smack two times on cuti he’s reaction is so simple.but he is on fire.i never saw a defender like cuti at this moment.on the extra time he made super interception. He is very good.

  3. He had Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Gundogan, and Foden all in his pocket. City is very dangerous from the left but against Cuti they all were shut down. Oh and he won his personal battle against so called “the best defender in EPL” Ruben Dias.

    His last tackle in the 98th minute is world class. He reacted faster than all other 7-8 players who were in the box, that’s a natural defensive instinct. You can’t teach that.

    The Spurs are crazy about him now. They believe he is their best signing in the last 10 years.

    And he played this way just a week after that ESPN dude said that Cuti does not worth €50 million.

    I am sure next summer all big clubs will want him for €100 million.

    • Dias is seriously overrated, he’s decent but not a world class. There are many defenders like him playing in team that has over 70% possession and don’t face any serious challenge. If they have good long passing skill then immediately the journalists call them world class.
