In the summer after Andre Villas-Boas took over at Tottenham, it looked as though Michael Dawson's days at the club were numbered.
Despite being club captain, the centre-back was on the verge of being sold to Queens Park Rangers, only for the move to break down at the 11th hour.
Having barely featured all season, the English defender has now started Tottenham's last two league games, which they have both won. Dawson made 11 clearances against Liverpool as he helped stop the Premier League's top scorer, Luis Suarez, adding to his tally.
Talk will inevitably turn to Dawson joining QPR again in January now that former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is in charge at Loftus Road, but he has shown that he may still have a future at Spurs.
