Dejan Kulusevski has made an “absolutely remarkable” start to his Tottenham career, according to Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge.
The 21-year-old has taken the Premier League by storm since joining from Juventus in January and has already established himself as a nailed on starter under Antonio Conte.
How has Kulusevski performed for Tottenham?
Kulusevski has made an outstanding start to his career in English football.
He initially signed for an £8.3m loan fee from the Old Lady, although if his current form continues, it’ll only be a matter of time before Spurs activate his £29.2m option to buy.
After making a couple of substitute appearances, the attacker was thrown in for his full top-flight debut against Manchester City last month and needed just four minutes to score his first Premier League goal, tapping home from Heung Min Son’s squared pass.
That wouldn’t prove his most decisive contribution, though, with Kulusevski assisting Harry Kane for the winner as Conte’s side claimed a priceless three points in their battle for the top four.
He would score another fine goal at Leeds less than two weeks later before marking his full home debut by grabbing two assists in the victory over Everton.
Kulusevski also won the penalty that Kane dispatched at Manchester United and already sits on two goals and four assists in his first seven starts in the Premier League.
What did Bridge say about Kulusevski?
He told GIVEMESPORT: “He’s remarkable, absolutely remarkable, and he’s only 21. I think he really helps Kane and Son; it allows them to do what they do best, and I still haven’t seen a full-back that has done a number on him.
“This guy has come in and scored twice and got four assists already, it’s brilliant and he’s really helped Tottenham kick on.”

Has Kulusevski made the right-wing spot his own?
Having started the last seven Premier League games, Kulusevski’s form has quickly seen him become an automatic pick under Conte.
He has already matched Lucas Moura’s goal involvement tally despite having played 850 minutes fewer than the Brazilian, while his all-round game is right at the very top at present.
With Tottenham only playing one game a week for the remainder of the season, there’s absolutely no reason for Conte to tinker with his front three, who are quickly building an impressive relationship.
Therefore, Kulusevski should keep his place in the starting line-up unless something drastically changes in the weeks ahead.
