Depending who you talk to, DeAndre Yedlin’s first Premier League appearance for Tottenham over the weekend was either too long in coming or a pleasant surprise. He’s been stuck behind a logjam of talent in North London, but Kyle Walker’s recent injury opened up the pipeline to right back that Yedlin slid into in the 79th minute on Saturday.
Yedlin largely looked calm on possession and completed all three of his passes. Could this mean he’s the next Philipp Lahm? Naturally. Commence freak-outs now.
If you wanted to see every touch of Yedlin’s from his Premier League debut, USMNT video man Rob Usry has you covered, as usual. And so the hype train rolls on, unimpeded.
