Luka Modric

So a 0-0 draw at home to United where we couldn't really find the answers to break down their back four. Crouch letting Sir Alex off the hook early in the first half after missing a sitter and Rafa failing to find the net with his head and going close very late on. Although there were a whole team of 'Man of the matches' today, this game summed up Luka Modric for us in a nut shell and just how important to the side he is.

With Bale and Rafa gaining most of the plaudits this season, Luka has been quietly going about his business doing a fantastic job for Spurs on the pitch. The Croatian has filled in for Tommy fantastically, sitting in as the deep play maker controlling the game, and has become the real heart of the present Tottenham side. The player was like a magnet to ball today, consistently eager to be on the ball or fighting to win it back showing a real drive and desire to win the game in midfield for us against a United side that were made to look very ordinary.

It's easy to give Bale and Rafa all the plaudits this season, they're our top scorers and have been in fantastic form this season. Although, I'd hate to think how we would've coped without our Croatian magician running the show this season, spreading the ball to either flank and bringing the likes of Rafa into the game whilst not afraid to stick a tackle in. We're finally getting a squad together that has the potential to achieve anything, let's hope we can keep hold of these players.

To small for the Premier League? Your 'avin' a laugh Wenger.
