|NACER HAILS 'INCREDIBLE' MOUSA|
Nacer Chadli paid tribute to Mousa Dembele as he chalked up 50 games for us in the Barclays Premier League, insisting: “You can’t get the ball off him!”
The Belgian international team-mates both started in Sunday’s impressive 3-1 victory against Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.
That marked Mousa’s half-century for us in the Premier League after his switch from Fulham in August, 2012.
Recently on target against Stoke, Mousa has featured in all-but two of our 34 matches in all competitions this season.
Nacer, who has featured in 12 of our last 13 matches in all competitions, starting six, summed his friend and team-mate up in one word. “Incredible.”
“We play with a strong midfield, lots of rotation and Mousa is good at that,” said Nacer.
“He can keep the ball, go forward and he can defend as well. He’s so strong on the ball, you can’t get the ball off him!
“In a one-on-one, he always beats his man. That’s his game. You can’t get the ball from him, you can’t win it off him, you have to hope he loses it!
“He’s an unbelievable player for us and it’s great he’s got to 50 games in the Premier League for Spurs. It’s a nice achievement.”
