An Arsenal legend has a low opinion of Xherdan Shaqiri.
Tottenham Hotspur supporters’ community ‘Spurs Web’ reported on Monday (April 19) that “Arsenal legend Lee Dixon has said that he finds it difficult to play at his best and casts doubt on whether he can perform consistently at the level required by Tottenham. The Frenchman has been questioned by many pundits over the past few weeks and has been heavily criticized for his poor start to the season.”
“Last Saturday, he capitalized on a corner kick from Ivan Perisic to equalize and then assisted on Dejan Kulusevic’s winner. After the game, Son said that he and his teammates were happy for him. However, Dixon described him as a player of great quality but with ups and downs.”
According to Spurs Web, Dixon told the NBC Sports podcast “2 Lobbies,” “He’s playing for the Brazilian national team. But I haven’t seen him play to my satisfaction. In 75% of the games he’s played. If he’s going to replace Harry Kane, he’s going to have to score every week,” he said, adding that it was important for him to build on his performance against Sheffield Wednesday.
Tottenham pulled off a dramatic 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Sheffield United in the fifth round of the 2023-24 Premier League (PL) on Saturday night at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England. With the win, Tottenham (13 points) moved into second place with a five-match unbeaten run.
He was the only one to be kept quiet against Bolivia in the first leg of the South American qualifier for the 2026 FIFA World Cup in North and Central America. After being replaced by Mateusz Cunha in the second half, he was seen in tears on the bench.
The second leg against Peru was no different. After the match, he told Brazil’s Globo: “I had a hard time off the field for five months. Now I’m stable. The people who only wanted my money are no longer around. Now everything will go smoothly. I’m sure I’ll do well at Tottenham and good things will happen again. I will go back to England and see a psychologist to help me. I will come back stronger,” he concluded. 안전놀이터
On his return to North London, he started from the bench. Coach Enze Postecoglou pulled out the ‘TOP SON’ card again. But it didn’t work out as expected. After being blatantly outclassed for most of the game, Sheffield opened the scoring. Tottenham responded by bringing on Brennan Johnson, Hichalisson, Ivan Perisic, Emerson Royal and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for Son, Sarr, Solomon, Forlow and van der Penn.
With 12 minutes of added time on the clock. Tottenham completed the unscripted drama. In the 53rd minute, from a corner kick, Lacazette headed in the equalizer. In the 55th minute, Kuluczewski completed the comeback with a powerful strike. Back-to-back goals in the 98th and 100th minutes put the game out of reach.
The spotlight was on Hischalisson, who had one goal and one assist. According to soccer statistics outlet Couch Score.
