Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings
Michael Vorm – 6/10
The player was quite solid even though he did not have much to do besides catching a stray ball here and there.
Serge Aurier – 7/10
He picked up a yellow card but that did nothing to tarnish his otherwise solid performance. Aurier was involved in Llorente’s opening goal as well.
Davinson Sanchez – 8.5/10
Sanchez established utter domination at the back. Even when he gave the ball away, he made some necessary tackles to win it back.
Juan Foyth – 7/10
Foyth displayed splendid signs of composure and was quite solid. But there’s still plenty of room for improvement.
Danny Rose – 6.5/10
Rose made some good blocks but his decision-making was rather shoddy. He picked up a yellow card but that could have led to a harsher outcome since he did push a player. That said, he was quite average otherwise.
Harry Winks – 9/10
Winks simply dominated the midfield last night. The pace of the game was dictated by him and he did not allow the opposition to capitalise even once.
Moussa Sissoko – 7/10
Sissoko was responsible for disrupting some threats from Apoel. The player also provided support whenever Spurs had to surge ahead.
Dele Alli – 7/10
Alli assumed a responsible role as he made things happen for his teammates. It would have been a perfect display from him had he managed to influence the game up front like he usually does.
Georges-Kevin Nkoudou – 7.5/10
Nkoudou soldiered through and fought hard until he scored a goal. From then on, the player knew his work was done.
Heung-Min Son – 9.5/10
Son created numerous problems for the opposition defence. He scored an important goal and worked beautifully with Llorente.
Fernando Llorente – 8.5/10
He scored a goal and put in an electrifying display for Spurs. Llorente narrowly missed out on setting up a goal for Sissoko after the latter played it right into the hands of the keeper. However, he went on to set up Son’s goal.
Mousa Dembele – 4/10
Dembele gave the ball away too many times and did not do much for the team.
Kyle Walker-Peters – 5/10
The youngster was decent enough and played as a wing-back in place of Rose.
Kazaiah Sterling – N/A
The teenager came on too late to make an impact.
