Brazilian battler stars in drab draw at Goodison Park…
- 25 Lloris – 6
Lucky to not be badly injured after a horrible collision with Lukaku, but still kept a clean sheet.
- 02 Walker – 6
Typically industrious down the right flank.
- 05 Vertonghen – 7
Solid as ever, and dealt with the threat of Lukaku and Mirallas easily.
- 20 Dawson – 6
Outshone by his defensive partner, but made no mistakes.
- 06 Chiriches – 7
Composed on the ball, and started attacks from deep for multiple occasions.
- 08 Paulinho – 8
Combative and aggressive in midfield, and dominated Ross Barkley and James McCarthy.
- 17 Townsend – 6
Had his quietest game in quite a while for Spurs.
- 30 Sandro (Dembélé – 61′ ) – 6 & 6
Helped Spurs dominate possession early on, but was subbed off for the more attacking Dembele after an hour.
- 14 Holtby – 7
Got his chance ahead of Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen, and was composed with the ball at his feet, but failed to really create anything of note.
- 07 Lennon (Sigurdsson – 69) – 6 & 6
Quite performance from the English winger, who was replaced for the more effective Sigurdsson with twenty minutes to go.
- 09 Soldado – 6
Poor. The Spaniard doesn’t offer much apart from his goals, and when he doesn’t score, he doesn’t do much else.
