Richarlison was named our supporters' HSBC Player of the Match after his critical impact off the bench to help us to a 2-1 win over Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.
Picking up his first Player of the Match award of the season, Richy claimed 57 per cent of the vote in an exclusive poll on our official app straight after the game.
Having fallen behind on 74 minutes at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Brazilian was called upon by Ange Postecoglou to enter the fray and help turn the tide against the Blades - and, boy, did he!
Entering the field on 80 minutes, the forward came up with his first Premier League goal of the season to level the scores when he glanced home Ivan Perisic's cross in the eighth minute of injury time. He then provided the assist for Dejan Kulusevski's winner in the 10th minute of additional time to seal our fourth win on the spin.
Richarlison's goal was his 50th in the Premier League to date while his assist took him to 70 goal involvements in England top flight (50 goals, 20 assists).
