Michel provided proof of just that at Swansea. Drafted in late after Hugo Lloris felt ill at the team’s hotel, Michel put in another faultess display as we produced a dramatic late revival to win 3-1.
Trailing 1-0 with just two minutes remaining, Dele Alli levelled, Heung-Min Son fired us 2-1 up and Christian Eriksen secured a thrilling victory with three goals in six minutes.
It was Michel’s fourth start in the Premier League this season and his 11th appearance in all competitions - and this one came against his former club, the Dutch international made 95 appearances for the Swans between 2011-14.
“For me, it was a very special evening in every way,” said Michel. “Of course, I hope that Swansea stay up but it was a massive win for us where we showed great spirit.
“You see the power of Tottenham - it’s the team and the squad. We just kept on attacking and believing and you’ve seen the strength of our squad, we are a whole team.
“Hugo was ill, I’ve stepped in, Harry is out and Sonny is doing well, as is Vincent. That’s the power of the team and the squad we’ve got.
“Vincent works hard and you can see today that he did so well. He showed that he’s very important for us. He didn’t play a lot in the last few months but when he’s called upon like Saturday and today he’s done so well. I’m very happy for him.”
