Nacer stays grounded
02 October 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Nacer Chadli scored the biggest goal of his Spurs career at Arsenal – but quickly turned the attention to our defence.
The Belgium international fired us into the lead after 56 minutes of Saturday’s first North London derby of the season - his ninth goal for us and fourth already this term.
The Gunners put us under pressure for the rest of the game but we defended superbly – the only slip when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain lashed home a scrambled equaliser on 74 minutes.
“I thought we were well-organised, fought hard for each other, showed great team spirit and that’s what Tottenham is about,” said Nacer.
“Younes Kaboul and Jan Vertonghen were very strong. I was pleased to see them play together.
“You can see they are used to each, their communication was great and I’m delighted for both, they played an unbelievable game.
“The back four with Hugo, he made one unbelievable save, the midfield as well, it was great team work.”
