Tottenham player ratings: Harry Winks and Sanchez impress but Son, Dele and Hojbjerg struggle

0
72

Hugo Lloris

Couldn’t do much about Ward-Prowse’s powerful sliced half-volley before the half-hour mark. Had nothing else to do. 6

Davinson Sanchez

Another solid display at the back on the whole and dealt with much of what came his way. Made a huge sliding block in his own box in added time to save Dier’s blushes. 8

Eric Dier

Making his 300th appearance for the club, he defended well but some of those long raking passes look tired and off-key. He was dispossessed late on and almost gifted Saints a winning goal. 6

Ben Davies

Headed home from Son’s free-kick within 15 minutes but was flagged offside. Left the attacking on the whole to those ahead of him on this occasion. 7

Emerson Royal

Involved in plenty of the action but without the end product of his Boxing Day display. 6

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Covered plenty of ground but also plenty of tired moments and his passing wasn’t always on point when it got to the attacking final third. Kept deciding against shooting in decent areas around the box. 5

Harry Winks

Had a nervy moment in possession early on, losing the ball in front of his box but he made the interception in the area to win it back. Played a crucial slide-rule pass in to the path of Son for the penalty. He curled another excellent ball into the path of Kane but VAR decided the striker was offside. Worked hard in the centre of the pitch and was probably Spurs’ best player on the day. 8

Dele Alli

Playing out of position on the right of the front three, he worked hard but struggled to make an impact. 5

Sergio Reguilon

Taken off at half-time after an erratic first half with him picking up a yellow card late on and walking a tightrope with the officials. Replaced by Doherty for the second half. 5

Heung-min Son

Not up to his usual standards. He had a shot from distance saved before running through and getting wiped out by Salisu for the penalty in the first half. Struggled to make much of an impact in the second half, with a couple of comfortable efforts at the goalkeeper and passes to others. 5

Harry Kane

Made no mistake with his penalty, powering it into the left-hand side and sending Forster the wrong way. Fired home again early in the second half but VAR ruled him offside when his body seemed to be on. Drifted out of the game as the service waned but headed into the side-netting late on. 7

Subs

Matt Doherty

Came on for the second half on the left and challenged Forster for a Winks ball and the keeper knocked it into his own net. A foul was given against the Irishman when Forster never had it under control. He then was denied by the keeper soon after Son put him through. Kept having to cut inside on his right foot which did him no favours. He did show some good footwork to set up Gil for a late chance. 5

Lucas Moura

Came on for the final half hour and tested Forster a couple of times. 5

Bryan Gil

Brought on in the right wing-back role for Emerson in the final 10 minutes. Had a late chance to win it but was denied by the goalkeeper. A bright little cameo. 6
