Spurs vs Hull - Gylfi ready to face Tom
25 October 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
Gylfi Sigurdsson is looking forward to facing his former midfield team-mate Tom Huddlestone at the Lane this weekend.
Central midfielder Tom spent seven years with us and scored 15 goals in 181 appearances before signing for Sunday’s opponents, Hull City, in the summer.
A popular figure among supporters during his time here, Tom has formed an important engine room partnership with our on-loan midfielder Jake Livermore at the heart of Steve Bruce’s side this term.
But he’ll have a new man to work with on Sunday, as Jake is ineligible to play against us.
Having spent last season with Tom here at Spurs, Gylfi is well aware of his qualities and knows he could play a key role for the visitors on Sunday.
“Tom is a fantastic player as we all know,” said Gylfi. “I saw at first-hand last season just how good he can be, his passing and vision is unbelievable and if we allow him too much time, he will find his targets and cause us damage.
“He and Jake have done really well for Hull, they’ve come in to their midfield and been almost ever-present and I’m sure their performances are one of the reasons why they have made a decent start to the campaign.”
