Mohammed Salisu scores high ratings in Southampton game against Tottenham Hotspurs

Published on: 23 April 2021

Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu was solid at the back for his side Southampton despite losing to Tottenham Hotspurs.

The saints suffered a 2-1 defeat at away in the English Premier League on Wednesday evening.

Salisu, who joined in a £10.9m deal last summer from Real Valladolid in Spain was handed his fifth start by coach Ralph Hasenhuttl and impressed.

Danny Ings opened the scoring for the visitors before Gareth Bale restored parity. Son Heung-Min scored a late penalty to hand interim coach Ryan Masson his first victory in charge of the club.

The 29-year old succeeded Jose Mourinho who was sacked on Monday by the club over poor performance.

Though the Saints suffered defeat but the Ghanaian did not disappoint at the back following his swashbuckling performance in the game.

The enterprising defender recorded a rating of 6.7/10 and 6.73/10 by SofaScore and WhoScored respectively which is his best performance for his outfit in the Premier League so far.

He was able to keep Bale and Serge Aurier at bay for much of the game.

Mohammed Salisu made six successful clearances and six tackles, which was the most clearances made by any player on the pitch, whilst only Aurier registered more tackles in the game (seven) than him.
