What James Maddison said about £43m Tottenham Hotspur ‘machine’ after beating Liverpool

Following the victory over Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur playmaker James Maddison praised defender Micky van de Ven.

Following his performance for Tottenham Hotspur against Liverpool, Micky van de Ven has been praised as a “machine.”

An intense and ultimately contentious game, Liverpool felt essentially cheated in North London.

A goal by Luis Diaz was wrongly disallowed for offside, Curtis Jones was given a straight red card, and Diogo Jota was handed his marching orders after the break.

After putting their bodies on the line, it appeared that Liverpool would escape with a 1-1 draw, but there was a shocking turn of events.

Joel Matip smashed Pedro Porro’s cross into his own goal, giving Tottenham a thrilling last-second victory.

                                                   

James Maddison raves about Tottenham defender Micky van de Ven

Naturally, Liverpool feels extremely betrayed, but very, very few Tottenham fans will give a damn about that.

Matip’s self-inflicted clearance sent the Spurs faithful into a frenzy, extending the excellent start to life under Ange Postecoglou.

Defender Micky van de Ven, who moved from Wolfsburg in a £43 million deal over the summer, has played a significant role in the Angeball revolution.

In the early parts of his Tottenham career, the Dutchman has been incredibly excellent, displaying exceptional speed at the back as well as the confidence to play out from the back.

Van de Ven outperformed Liverpool, and he posted on Instagram to celebrate a crucial three points in a “crazy” environment.

In response, playmaker James Maddison said, “Geez, you’re a machine,” expressing his continued awe at Van de Ven’s influence.

Van de Ven stats v Liverpool

Spurs’ achievement on Saturday will have been the more satisfying given that Van de Ven was closely associated with Liverpool throughout the summer.

Spurs now benefit greatly from the Reds’ failure to act, thanks to Van de Ven’s outstanding performance.

Statistics-wise, this wasn’t one of the more outstanding performances; there was only one clearance, two tackles, and no victories in the air.

Statistics will show that Van de Ven has better days, but they don’t really reflect how quick he is on the cover and how he can spark Tottenham offenses.

We witnessed that on Saturday, and it’s obvious from Maddison’s remarks that his teammates are also impressed.
