Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea: Player Ratings

Tottenham (4-2-3-1)

Hugo Lloris 6
Good save on Schurrle’s shot. Other than that, he had very little to do for the whole 90 mins.

Kyle Walker 7
Full of energy running up and down the pitch. Decent game.

Michael Dawson 7
Leadered the spurs defense well but will be annoyed about Chelsea’s equalizer though.

Jan Vertonghen 6
Average game by his standards. His needless foul led to the Chelsea’s goal.

Kyle Naughton 6
A normal game without taking much risks. Kept things simple.

Paulinho 7
Had one shot which came off the post in the first half. He was the soul of the spurs’ midfield battle.

Mousa Dembele 6
Started the game well but faded off in the second part of the game.

Andros Townsend 7
Lots of tricky dribbles, but he still needs to improve his end product.

Christian Eriksen 7

The Dane showed his class yet again with a superb build-up play to set up Tottenham’s goal. But his influence disappeared in the second half and he was replaced.

Gylfi Sigurdsson 7

Another goal scoring performance from the attacking midfielder. Almost won the game with a nice turn & shot during the closing stages of the game.

Roberto Soldado 5
A game to forget for the former Valencia man. He is yet to score a goal from open play in the league this season.

Subs:

Lewis Holtby 6

Nacer Chadli 5

Defeo: 6.5

Chelsea (4-2-3-1)

Petr Cech 6
He did his job well. No way he could have done anything to stop the Tottenham goal. Urged his team forward with his good distributions.

Branislav Ivanovic 7
Good defensive performance with lot of interceptions and timely blocks.

David Luiz 6.5
Concentrated performance from the Brazilian.  He didn’t try any of his fancy tricks today.

John Terry 7
Should take a bit of  blame for the opening goal but came back well by grabbing the equalizer for the blues.

Ashley Cole 6
Surprisingly, he rarely made any of his trademark overlapping runs today. Most of his game time was spent on defending Townsend and Walker’s darting runs.

John Obi Mikel 5
Didn’t do anything exceptional. Paved the way for Mata’s introduction at the half time.

Frank Lampard 6

Kept things ticking for Chelsea with his disciplined passing.

Ramires 6
Started the game in right where he was very poor. But improved a lot when he shifted to the middle again in the second half.

Oscar 5.5
Not as creative as he could be. Gave away possession on many occasions.

Eden Hazard 6
His average start to the season continues. (What happened to the Hazard of last season?) Showed some glimpses of his talent with few incisive runs though.

Fernando Torres 6

Energetic display from the 50 million man but his good work got marred when he was sent off for getting two yellow cards.

Subs:

Juan Mata 8
Proved his worth to his manager with a super performance after coming on. Changed the course of the game with his vision and creativity.

Andre Schurrle 6
Chelsea looked more threatening  after he came on but he missed a great chance when he was put through by a well weighted pass from Torress.
