Why does no one talk about Dembele’s Messi-esque goal from 2009?

Mousa Dembele has become the man that Tottenham Hotspur cannot function without – like a Christmas Day dinner without any pigs in blankets, Spurs are totally redundant without the big Belgium midfielder.

The former Fulham midfielder is the perfect blend of power and technique, agility and aggression – if the Lilywhites midfielder could add a few more goals to his game, something he’s more than capable of doing with the more defensive-minded Eric Dier/Victor Wanyama alongside him, it would be hard to argue against him being the complete midfielder.

It’s not like the 29-year-old doesn’t know where the back of the net is, though. Just check out this absolutely wankable material the footy archives have thrown up!
