Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League campaign has kicked off with a bang, leaving fans and critics in awe of their extraordinary performance. The North London club is currently perched at the top of the table, with an impressive record of six wins and two draws. Notably, their outstanding start has not gone unnoticed, as three Spurs players have secured their spots in WhoScored’s Premier League Team of the Season so far.
Guglielmo Vicario, Cristian Romero, and James Maddison, the standout performers from Tottenham’s remarkable journey, have rightly earned their places in the prestigious XI. Their contributions on the field have been nothing short of exceptional, and they continue to be instrumental in Spurs’ quest for glory this season.
Guglielmo Vicario, the summer signing, has made an indelible mark in his short time at the club. Tottenham secured his services for a reported £17 million, and he has more than justified the investment. The 27-year-old goalkeeper has exhibited remarkable shot-stopping prowess, maintaining an impressive save success rate of 80.5 percent. Only Liverpool’s Alisson Becker boasts a better record in the Premier League. Vicario’s stellar performances between the posts have garnered him a well-deserved WhoScored rating of 7.07. Notably, he has managed to keep three clean sheets, a testament to his vital role in the team’s defensive stability.
Cristian Romero has emerged as a rock in Tottenham’s defense, catching the eye of fans and pundits alike. The club secured his services for a fee of £42 million, and he has proved to be worth every penny. Under the guidance of new manager Ange Postecoglou, Romero has flourished, showcasing his defensive prowess. With 20 tackles, 12 interceptions, and 35 clearances to his name, the 23-year-old has consistently thwarted opposition attacks. His WhoScored rating stands at an impressive 7.39, reflecting his unwavering commitment to the Spurs cause.
James Maddison’s arrival at Tottenham has injected creativity and goal-scoring prowess into the team’s midfield. With a WhoScored rating of 7.76, Maddison is the highest-rated player in the Premier League, a testament to his incredible impact. The 25-year-old midfielder has been directly involved in seven of Tottenham’s goals in the league, both scoring and assisting. Moreover, he has played a pivotal role in the team’s build-up play, contributing 25 key passes that have ignited numerous attacking moves.
Tottenham’s sensational start to the Premier League season can largely be attributed to the outstanding performances of Vicario, Romero, and Maddison. Their individual brilliance has not only secured their spots in the prestigious WhoScored’s Premier League Team of the Season so far but has also propelled Tottenham to the summit of the league table. As the season progresses, fans will be eagerly watching to see if these stars can maintain their exceptional form and lead Spurs to a successful campaign.
