At Tottenham, Pedro Porro is gaining favour with people quite rapidly.
The Spanish player has significantly improved this season after a difficult start under Antonio Conte at Spurs.
As a rampaging right-back in an all-out assault Spurs squad, Porro has been absolutely outstanding.
The £39 million man still needs to improve in a few areas of his game, though, as usual.
Respectfully speaking, Porro isn’t the best at defence and it’s obvious that he more likes to attack the ball.
Speaking about Porro’s skill and style of play on Off The Ball, Keith Treacy argues that he still doesn’t think the right-back can defend, which keeps him from being a fan.

Treacy expressed his opinion regarding the full-back.
“I’m not sure if he enters the Arsenal squad. Pedro Porro is a decent football player who plays in the Premier League, therefore it goes without saying that he is a solid player. However, he struggles to defend as a right-back. I’ve said it before about Trent Alexander-Arnold: he can’t defend, despite being regarded as the world’s top right-back. Pedro Porro doesn’t seem to have the defensive skills necessary to play right-back, and if he does, it will be a disgrace. Treacy stated, “Isolate him and run at him all day long if I were a coach facing the Spurs.”
Although it would have been entirely appropriate to criticise Porro during the previous season, the right-back has greatly improved in recent weeks.
Although he’s not flawless, he isn’t exactly a liability in the back.
Spurs’ recent injury issue would have made it very easy for them to falter defensively, but thanks to an incredible collective effort, they have won four of their previous five games.
Although Porro isn’t the best defender in the game, he is steadily getting better at it.
