Tottenham survived a late scare to overcome Asteras Tripolis in the Premier League. Harry Kane scored again for Spurs as Federico Fazio picked up another red card in the closing stages of the match. Here are the individual player ratings.
Michel Vorm- 7
Saved well when he needed to and swept up expertly, could’ve maybe saved the penalty but otherwise did well
Ben Davies- 7
Often had a lot of room on the left and did well, passing was very good and produced several good attacks down the left flank early on
Jan Vertonghen- 6
Struggled against the long ball over the top, and especially in the second half he was caught out of position numerous times when the ball came high
Federico Fazio- 6
Also struggled with the long balls, gave away a needless penalty, not much contact but it still put us under pressure late on
Eric Dier- 6
Didn’t do much wrong defensively but was very cautious going forward, looks lost at Right-Back, would surely be better in the Centre of defence
Mousa Dembele- 6
Sometimes excellent with his distribution of the ball but often went missing too many times during the game
Benjamin Stambouli- 7
Kept us very solid in the midfield in the first half, very rarely wasted the ball and won most of his tackles, good display
Erik Lamela- 7
Was effective on both wings, created some good runs, often wasted the final ball when better options were available to him
Andros Townsend- 7
When he switched wings, he delivered some good crosses which troubled Asteras, pace was effective and he took his penalty superbly well
Christian Eriksen- 6
Again, didn’t have a great influence on the game, couldn’t create any chances, passing and fluidity on the ball was better tonight
Ryan Mason- 7
Once again, it was a great performance from Mason coming from the bench, he looked one of our best midfielders and showed why he is a Premier League regular.
Paullinho was sent on with instructions to stay solid and close out the game, no impact was made by the Brazilian.
Roberto Soldado- 6
He had a whole half to get into the game, but he struggledd to have an impact on the game throughout the 45 minutes that he was on the field.
Harry Kane- 8
Another very good showing from Harry, constant threat in our attacks, neatly taken goal as well, must start vs Stoke on Sunday, keep it up, Harry!
