Pochettino named a side to face Gillingham with eleven changes, but Spurs made light work of their League One opposition, putting five past Justin Edinburgh’s side on the manager’s return to White Hart Lane.
A double from Christian Eriksen and goals from Vincent Janssen, Josh Onomah and Erik Lamela saw Spurs easily into the fourth round, where they will face Liverpool at Anfield. Here are the Spurs player ratings.
Michel Vorm- 7
Hard to rate the Dutch stopper any higher or lower to be honest. Gillingham only took six shots throughout the whole game and none of which were on target, a poor night for them in front of goal.
Kieran Trippier- 7
Looked solid defensively, dealing with anything that came his way with composure. Also posed a threat going forward too, winning the penalty for Janssen’s first goal in a Spurs shirt.
Kevin Wimmer- 7
Didn’t have too much to deal with for the whole game, but looked good on the ball when building from the back. A good display.
Cameron Carter-Vickers- 7
A strong debut for Carter-Vicker, who hardly put a foot wrong. Looks like a man Pochettino can call upon when needed.
Ben Davies- 7
Aimed to bomb forward a little more than in previous games, and looked dangerous, put didn’t quite produce the final ball or shot to finish.
Tom Carroll- 6
Had a solid game, but that’s all I can really say about Carroll. Quietly went about his business, but wasn’t quite good enough going forward.
Harry Winks- 8
Played really well alongside Carroll in the middle of the park. He carried the ball forward with purpose and confidence. Another viable option for Pochettino should injuries get the better of the likes of Dier, Dembele or Wanyama. An excellent game from Winks
