Holy Shit guys, what a day. Tottenham Hotspur are now the ONLY undefeated in the Premier League after they beat Manchester City 2-0 at White Hart Lane. No matter how this Arsenal match ends (wrote this before the match ended), this has already been a better day than yesterday because we had an instant classic. So let's celebrate the day before the International Break and get into DST's Three Stars of Sunday.
Third Star: Laurent Koscielny's Right Hand - Arsenal
99 percent of Laurent Koscielny body had an average game as he kept a clean sheet against a poor Burnley side. The real hero of the match was his hand. In the 93rd minute, his right hand hit the ball into the net to ruin my perfect day as Arsenal beat Sean Dyche (Ginger Guardiola) Burnley side 1-0. So yeah, a big fuck you to Craig Pawson for letting it count.
Second Star: Son Heung-min - Tottenham Hotspur
Son Heung-min once again was Tottenham's heart beat as he had one assist and a game-leading two key passes in their 2-0 win over Manchester City. I consider myself an optimist but after seeing he was leading the line for us today I was worried he wasn't going to excel as he has on the wing but WOW did he prove me wrong. From the First 30 seconds until he was subbed off he was making incredible runs and being a nightmare for that City back four and their goalkeeper. He ended the match with a 7.72 match rating which once again was way too low. Thank God Mauricio Pochettino convinced him to stay.
First Star: Victor Wanyama - Tottenham Hotspur
Unless it's goalkeeper most people pick Man of The Matches by goals, assists but not here, and certainly not today. With Dembele injured and Eric Dier not fit enough to start Victor Wanyama was handed the task that no one has done successfully this season and that's stopping this powerful Manchester City midfield. With an 83.9 pass accuracy (Highest for any Spurs player who played more than 15 minutes) and with six total tackles in this game he deserved more than his 7.65 rating. Wanyama once again showed why he is one of the bargains of the summer and more importantly one of Tottenham's best players at the start of the season.
What a great weekend of Soccer to get us into the International Break. Also, before people call me biased for picking two spurs players, it's not my fault that some teams don't want to step up their game. Thank you all for the support and don't forget to follow us on Twitter @DST_Tweets!
Congrats bud. Love you.
