Player Ratings: Spurs 3-1 CSKA Moscow- Winks And Alli Shine In Champions League Send-Off

Spurs won their final Champions League group stage game as Wembley to secure a place in the Europa League. A brace from Dele Alli and a goal from Harry Kane secured the win for Spurs. Here are the Spurs player ratings. 

Hugo Lloris- 6

Didn’t have too much to do during the game, but he made a couple of decent saves throughout the ninety minutes. Another solid showing, and let’s hope that these rumours about him moving away have no substance.

Kyle Walker- 7

The right-back had another good game, and looked to cause a threat, providing an extra man in attack. He defended well too, and put in some good crosses from the wing.

Eric Dier- 5

Lost his man for the goal, and it looks like he will not feature much in the defence from now with the return of Toby Alderweireld. He has filled in well, but it is a relief to have Toby back fit again.

Jan Vertonghen- 6

Another solid game from Vertonghen. He could have made more of an effort to win the header in the lead up to the goal, but he played well apart from that.

Danny Rose- 7

A good performance from Danny Rose. He got in behind well and played a lovely drilled ball across goal for Harry Kane’s goal, continuing his good form.

Victor Wanyama- 6

Made a few good tackles in midfield. However, I would love to see Wanyama move the ball a lot quicker in midfield, making a quicker transition from defence to the attackers. Would quicken up our play a lot more.

Harry Winks- 8

Another excellent game from young Winks. He was strong, he was quick and controlled the midfield, sitting just in front of Wanyama on occasion.

Player Ratings: Chelsea 2-1 Spurs

Spurs’ unbeaten run in the Premier League that had lasted twelve games has come to an end. It took an in-form Chelsea side who have now won their last seven games in the league to beat Mauricio Pochettino’s side for the first time this season. 

Tottenham started the much better of the two, and after seeing Harry Kane’s early strike chalked off for offside, found themselves ahead after eleven minutes courtesy of an excellent strike from Christian Eriksen.

The Lilywhites continued to dominate proceedings in the first half, but went into the break level. Pedro picked up the ball on the edge of the box, Eric Dier failed to close him down as he watched the Spaniard curl a delightful shot past Lloris to fire Chelsea level.

The Blues soon went ahead after the break. Diego Costa broke down the left and pulled the ball back across goal for Victor Moses, who saw his shot deflected into the back of the net, first from Lloris but then from Vertonghen as Chelsea took the lead. Here are the Spurs player ratings as they taste defeat for the first time this season in the Premier League.

Hugo Lloris- 6

Couldn’t do too much about the Pedro goal just before half-time, but perhaps could have done a little better with the Moses shot. Everything else he had to do, he did well.

Kyle Walker- 6

Tried to become a threat down the right, but this become hard with his defensive duties. He left players with a little too much space for my liking on occasion, but more often than not, he recovered.

Eric Dier- 5

Could have easily prevented the two goals just by closing down. It was as simple as that. Not a great performance from the Englishman today, but he will be back.

Jan Vertonghen- 6

Thought he had a decent game today. He made a couple of crucial interceptions and was a little unlucky to see the shot for the second goal deflect off him and into the back of the net.

Kevin Wimmer- 5

I accept that Wimmer was dragged in to help the two centre-backs, but in the second half he left Moses with acres of space for the second goal. He needed to get out there and try and block the shot. Unfortunately, he was not in the position to do this.

Player Ratings: Monaco 2-1 Spurs – A Night To Forget…

Spurs were eliminated from the Champions League after just five matches on Tuesday night as they fell to a crushing 2-1 defeat at Monaco, in what was a terrible performance in a must-win game.

Spurs were lucky to go into the break level after Monaco missed a penalty, but fell behind after 48 minutes. Harry Kane levelled things up again from the spot four minutes later, but Spurs could not hold on for more than a minute as Monaco went ahead once again straight after Kane’s leveller.

The Lilywhites failed to come back from behind again as they crashed out of the Champions League in disappointing fashion. Here are the Spurs player ratings.

Hugo Lloris- 7

The Frenchman was the only Spurs player that actually had a good game. He saved the penalty, and made two or three magnificent saves to keep Spurs even slightly in the game.

Kieran Trippier- 4

Allowed way too much to come down his side. Also offered very little going forward, a very poor display. For me, Kyle Walker should have started this one.

Eric Dier- 4

Dier has built up a good partnership with Jan Vertonghen, and did not look the same defender playing alongside Kevin Wimmer. He was reckless at times, giving away the penalty. A very off-colour performance.

Kevin Wimmer- 4

I said Wimmer wasn’t too bad in the game against Arsenal. But boy, was he bad here! Very much like Dier, he didn’t look like he had anything in response to most of what the Monaco attack was throwing at Spurs.

Danny Rose- 4

Just like Trippier, Rose allowed too much to come down his side. He was caught out of position on countless occasions and I am surprised that Spurs conceded only two goals.

Player Ratings: Spurs 3-2 West Ham- Kane Snatches Win, Winks Impresses On Full Debut

Spurs came from behind with two late goals to snatch all three points from London rivals West Ham, and maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season after twelve games. 

Mauricio Pochettino’s side had to come from behind twice to get the win at White Hart Lane, Harry Winks firing Tottenham level the first time for 1-1. Manuel Lanzini’s penalty put the Hammers ahead for the second time before Harry Kane equalised before snatching the win from the penalty spot in injury time. Here are the Spurs player ratings.

Hugo Lloris- 6

Couldn’t do too much about the two goals, otherwise another solid display from the Frenchman.

Kyle Walker- 6

Another decent display from the England international. Looked to pose a threat going forward down the right-hand side, but couldn’t do as much this game as in previous games. Still looked solid.

Eric Dier- 6

The centre-backs were probably not the ones at fault for the two goals, and played pretty well over the ninety minutes. Was a little unlucky to see his header saved by Darren Randolph in the second half.

Jan Vertonghen- 6

Also had a pretty good game. As I said, neither of the goals were the fault of the centre-backs, and I though the two defenders at the heart of the defence on the whole dealt with the West Ham counter attack effectively.

Danny Rose- 7

Posed a huge threat going down the left, and had another good game. The one downside to his game today was the yellow card that sees him miss the game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge next Saturday.

Mousa Dembele- 7

Another strong display from the Belgian at White Hart Lane. He bossed the midfield at times and it is great to see Dembele back in the team on a regular basis.

Player Ratings: Spurs 2-0 Manchester City

Spurs produced one of the performances of the season to beat league leaders Manchester City, and inflict the first loss of the Pep Guardiola era the table-toppers. 

Pochettino’s side pressed from the front, allowing City next to no time on the ball, and was a big reason why Spurs were able to grab the three points. Spurs move up the second following the 2-0 win and are just one point off the top spot going into the international break. Here are the Spurs player ratings.

Hugo Lloris- 7

Made a couple of excellent saves to keep a clean sheet. Maybe a little lucky with the shot that hit the post, and distribution wasn’t as good as expected, but still a solid game for the Frenchman.

Kyle Walker- 7

Looked a real threat when going forward down the right-hand side, and did his defensive work well, another great game from the England international.

Toby Alderweireld- 7

Another excellent display at the back from the Belgian, making some really important tackles. A clean sheet against City is a real achievement and our superb defensive record continues.

Jan Vertonghen- 7

Looked really solid at the back, there were a couple of times where City got in behind, but you come to expect that from a side that had averaged three goals per game. A great defensive display.

Danny Rose- 7

Got embroiled in a heated battle with Raheem Sterling down the left that threatened to turn sour a few times, but he kept the winger quiet for the majority of the game, Sterling looking nowhere as much of a threat as he did against Celtic in the Champions League.


Player Ratings: CSKA Moscow 0-1 Spurs – Son Shines Again

After losing the opening group game against Monaco, Spurs recovered well to go and win 1-0 at CSKA Moscow courtesy of another Heung-min Son strike with just under twenty minutes remaining. 

It was the South-Korean’s fifth goal in all competitions this season in a big win in Moscow, and here are the Spurs player ratings.

Hugo Lloris- 7

In the grand scheme of things, Lloris didn’t have too much to do in all honesty, but what he did have to do, he did well and kept a clean sheet with a good couple of saves.

Kieran Trippier- 7

Came in for Kyle Walker, and performed very well, he constantly looked to get down the right-hand side and cause problems, and did exactly that, getting a few good crosses into the box.

Toby Alderweireld- 7

Him and Vertonghen had their hands full all evening, having to deal with the physical presence of Lacina Traore, and they kept the striker fairly quiet, with Alderweireld making a crucial tackle in the first half.

Jan Vertonghen- 7

Also did very well in keeping Traore quiet, and seemed to be man-marking him in the first period, the Belgian won a few crucial duels in a good performance.

Ben Davies- 7

With Danny Rose still out with that hamstring injury, Ben Davies still continues to provide excellent cover. Another solid performance from the Welshman.

Victor Wanyama- 6

Made a few strong tackles, and survived after picking up an early yellow card. However, the Kenyan gave the ball away too many times in the midfield for my liking.

Dele Alli- 7

Played in a deeper role, but when we had the ball, he looked to be just as much of an attacking presence as the front four, and did that very well. Was unlucky to see his first half effort crash off the crossbar.


Player Ratings: Spurs 5-0 Gillingham – Winks & Eriksen Excel

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


Player Ratings: Spurs 1-0 Sunderland – Do You Agree?

Spurs managed to turn a dominant attacking display into a 1-0 victory to return to winning ways after that disappointing Champions League loss at Wembley against Monaco. 

Harry Kane scored the winner as he scored his second goal in two league games as he, Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier came off injured in the win at White Hart Lane. Here are our Spurs player ratings.

Hugo Lloris- 6

Had very little to do throughout the whole game in a dominant Spurs display, another clean sheet for the Frenchman.

Kyle Walker- 7

Looked a threat going down the right-hand side again, but I think the Wembley pitch suits him better with more space to run into. An excellent clearance off the line just before half-time that kept the scores level.

Eric Dier- 6

Slotted in well at centre-back away from his usual role as a defensive midfielder. Like all others in the back four, had very little to do and had a good game until he hobbled off in the second half.

Toby Alderweireld- 6

A real threat from corners once again and is proving to be a nightmare to mark on corners, another good display yet again from our most consistent performer.

Jan Vertonghen- 6

Ben Davies was left out of side yesterday with Pochettino not too keen on the Welshman played three games in just over a week, and I felt Vertonghen looked solid on the left but inevitably didn’t provide as much threat going forward.

Mousa Dembele- 7

His first start this season following the expiration of his contract, and yet again looked amazing bossing the midfield, breaking up play like he usually does so well and was a shame to see him limp off.

Victor Wanyama- 6

Had a fairly quiet game, he looked to get forward a lot more often than we would usually see him get forward such was the attacking dominance of our performance. A solid display, but I am sure there will be more to come from Wanyama.


UCL Player Ratings: Tottenham 1-2 Monaco

In front of a record crowd at Wembley, Spurs were unable to recover from a slow, sluggish start that saw then 0-2 down in just over 30 minutes. Despite Toby Alderweireld pulling a goal back for Spurs just before half-time, goals from Bernado Silva and Thomas Lemar were enough for Monaco to get their Champions League campaign off to a winning start. Here are the Spurs player ratings. 

Hugo Lloris- 5

Apart from the two goals, the Frenchman didn’t really have too much to do at all. I thought he was unlucky with the two goals, especially the first, nothing he could do about the strike from Bernado Silva

Kyle Walker- 6

Looked a threat going forward for a large portion of the night, bombing down that right-hand side as he so often does well. However, I feel his final ball or cross could have been better at times.

Toby Alderwireld- 5

Was solid enough, but despite the well-taken goal, not quite up to his usual standards to be honest. He gave the ball away in the second half when under no pressure at all with a poor touch, fortunately the resulting attack came to nothing worth mentioning.

Jan Vertonghen- 5

Really shouldn’t have backed off Bernado Silva and let him run as he did, if he defends a little more aggressively in that sitiatuion and puts a foot in then Wednesday evening might have been a different story altogether.

Ben Davies- 5

Would certainly like to see Davies become more of an attacking threat and be a little more like Danny Rose, but defensively I think his performance was just about good enough.

Eric Dier- 5

Didn’t really look himself on Wedensday night under the Wembley lights, but after a dodgy and nervy first half performance, the defensive midfielder picked his game up a but in the second period before he was replaced by Moussa Sissoko.

Dele Alli- 6

Alli was deployed in a deeper role than usual in the first half, and the substitution of Son for Dembele at the break allowed him to push forward in the second half. He worked hard in the deeper role and you cannot fault his work rate, but I feel the youngster is at his best playing just behind the striker.

Player Ratings: Spurs 4-1 West Ham

You could argue that this game was one of our finest performances of the season so far, as two goals from Harry Kane helped Spurs thrash rivals West Ham at White Hart Lane. It was a fantastic, all round team performance from our boys, putting us a point behind Arsenal in fourth, and four points off Leicester at the summit of the Premier League. Who were our star performers? Well, let’s take a look at the Tottenham player ratings against West Ham.

Hugo Lloris: 6

It’s been a tough week for our captain, but he played well today, doing his duty when called upon, which in all fairness was a rarity. Lloris will be disappointed to not have kept a clean sheet, but for the other 88 minutes of the game, he was rarely tested.

Kyle Walker: 7

A relatively good outing from Walker, who managed to get on the score sheet on his 100th appearance for Spurs. The only thing of note, apart from the goal, was his mistake for the West Ham goal. Sure, it was 4-0 with a few minutes left, but he will still be kicking himself nonetheless.

Toby Alderweireld: 8

Find me another man in football who can head the ball so often in a game, and his hair remain perfect from the first minute to the last? Toby Alderweireld had a great game at the back today, as well as getting a goal for himself, and it honestly seems like whenever a ball is played into the box, he can read the future, as he is always there to clear the danger. Easily one of the buys of the summer in the Premier League.

Jan Vertonghen: 7

Once more, Jan and Toby’s love story at the back adds another chapter, with the two Belgians having stellar games for Spurs. Vertonghen was out of the limelight a bit in this game, but he still managed to keep his composure, and deal with any danger thrown at them.

Danny Rose: 7

Solid once more from Rose, who has grown into an integral part of our side, with his attacking threat and defensive work. Not much else to comment on, other than he is one of our most consistent players every week, including today.

Eric Dier: 7

His transformation to a holding midfielder was showcased to its max today, as Dier showed that he is more than capable in the middle of the park. He can break up play, start attacks, he plays the ball with poise and finesse, and he gives both attackers and defenders a safety net.

Dele Alli: 7

A great attacking threat who should have gotten a goal today, but thundered his header against the bar. A quiet game considering his recent performances, but the most important part of the game for him is that he will miss the game against Chelsea through suspension.

Christian Eriksen: 8

A great game from the Great Dane, who seems to effortlessly and silently change and dictate the game. Assisting Alderweireld, Eriksen floated around, allowing others to flourish, in a great performance once again.

Mousa Dembele: 8

Now this is the Dembele we all wanted to see for about 3 years. He bullied the West Ham players off the ball, and at one point, I thought he had glue on his boot. The man is a genius! Today, he was just magnificent to watch.

Heung-Min Son: 7

Such a bundle of energy in this game that he pressed every one at least once. Son has been a great addition to the team, and while he didn’t really have sights on goal, he certainly helped the team.

Harry Kane: 9

Two goals from the England striker, and they were goals that really showed that Kane is back to his best. Goals feel better when Kane scores them, and there is no stopping this man when he’s in this kind of form. His work off the ball is superb, and his hold up play, as well as his link up play, are amongst the best that I have ever seen in the Premier League.Kane is slowly showing he is an all round striker, topped off with the fact that he’s one of our own!
