Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has defended Juan Foyth's performance in Sunday's 4-2 defeat to Arsenal in the Premier League.
The 20-year-old found it difficult to make his mark against the Gunners, however, with Tottenham's back four struggling to deal with the home side's attacking movement.
Pochettino, though, has said that Foyth "was one of the best players on the pitch".
"How many players on the halfway line miss the pass? A lot," Pochettino told reporters. "And then it is 50 metres to arrive to the goal. Because he is young it is easy to blame him, it is easy.
"But for me, Juan was one of the best players on the pitch. If we put this pass that wasn't good in that action out of the 90 minutes, by far [he] was the best. By far."
Foyth, who joined Tottenham from Estudiantes in 2017, has now played the full 90 minutes in each of his team's last four Premier League matches.
