Tottenham defender William Gallas hailed his centre-back partner Steven Caulker after the pair helped Spurs to a win over Manchester United.

The 20-year-old is in his first season in the first team at White Hart Lane and his work has not gone un-noticed by the Frenchman.

“I’m sure he’ll be one of the best in England if he works hard,” said Gallas, quoted in the Daily Star.

“He did well against United and what I like is that he listens.

“He is focused. He is not afraid to play football or to go forward and that is fantastic for him.”
