Sky TV were quick to give the champagne to Scott Parker last night and while it’s hard to argue with that assessment, were there other, more worthy candidates at the heart of Spurs defence?
Speaking after the game, TV pundit Gary Neville pointed to a previous ‘soft centre’ in the Tottenham side which would have seen us lose a match like that in the past and that’s why he agreed with the Parker decision.
Just behind Scott however, Ledley and Daws were pretty immense while Brad Friedel had a solid performance on one of his busiest nights at the club.
Moving up through the midfield and attack there were few opportunities for the front men, although Bale and Kranjcar showed occasional flashes of their best form.
So is it Scott Parker for you or is there a better candidate for man of the match?
