WATCH: Mousa Dembele's Supreme Dribbling Ability Was In Full Flow Last Night

WATCH: Mousa Dembele's Supreme Dribbling Ability Was In Full Flow Last Night

Spurs midfielder Mousa Dembele is an absolute joy to watch.

While the Belgian doesn't have the most impressive end product in terms of goals and assists, having been challenged by many to improve those areas of his game, there's no denying his quality and how influential a player he is for Tottenham and their system under Mauricio Pochettino.

I would go as far as saying that there are few midfielders who come close to Dembele when it comes to breaking up play, and being able to bypass players with his innate balance, quick feet and strength.

Spurs played their first game of pre-season last night, winning 4-2 in the United States leg of the International Champions Cup against 10-man Paris Saint-Germain, and one particular piece of play from Dembele went viral.

Winning the ball back on the centre circle, the former Fulham man soared past three players in an archetypal mazy midfield run - producing not one, but TWO sumptuous nutmegs that left PSG no choice but to foul him to stop him in his tracks.

The way he retains the ball under pressure is just next level, and it's a trait he is arguably the best in the world at perfecting it on a regular basis.

Unfortunately for Dembele, he was ever so slightly pipped when it came to the best piece of play during the game.

That's because Christian Eriksen smashed in this long-range rocket earlier in the game:

Be right back, just going to watch that Dembele madness again...
