Kenedy could well have salvaged a point if his first touch hadn’t let him down when he was put through on goal in the second half against Spurs. However, it shouldn’t detract from a very good all-round display.

The Brazilian’s ability to ghost past players with his superb close control and dribbling skills were a sight to behold on Saturday.

Fans on Twitter reacted to a stat that showed Kenedy had the joint most successful dribbles across the first round of Premier League fixtures:

One supporter couldn’t help mention his poor touch after being put through one-on-one with Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris:

I thought he had a good game, but I think there is more to come from him. At 22 years of age, the potential is clearly there and by the end of the season, I think we’ll have an even better player than we have now. It’s a shame that we didn’t manage to secure a purchase option on the Brazilian.
