While Sky Sports match summariser Gary Neville gave the Man of the Match award to fellow right back Kyle Walker yesterday, it seemed that rival channels would have gone for Scott Parker as the player of the day.
Anyone who saw the Match of the Day coverage last night would have seen an excellent package highlighting Parker’s contribution to the game with some perfectly timed tackles, neat short passes and a determination to hold on to the ball. The Spurs manager Harry Redknapp was also effusive in his praise for our deadline day signing, after the game.
On the other hand, Walker did score the vital goal and had a decent game overall, but the Sky Sports website this morning highlights that his man of the match award was given mostly for his attacking play and not his defending.
So who was your man of the match out of Walker or Parker? Or maybe VDV or somebody else deserves the praise after another routine North London derby win.
