Tom Huddlestone has very much been Tottenham’s forgotten man in this campaign and after two seasons plagued by injury, the midfielder has found opportunities hard to come by this season. However, Tom has had a positive impact in our last two games against Manchester City and Wigan and fans’ comments suggest that many have made him their Man of the Match from Saturday’s fixture.
Meanwhile, Huddlestone’s performances have also caught the attention of the club’s head coach Andre Villas-Boas.
“With performances like this he is able to get more chances – definitely,” AVB is quoted as saying.
The player himself has also hinted at Andre’s assurances and there is a comparison here with Michael Dawson. Both men looked set to leave at the end of the August transfer window but in Daws’ case, he won the manager over to become a regular in the starting XI.
Could the same thing happen with Tom Huddlestone?
