Eriksen has a stinker for Spurs…
Tottenham Hotspur ratings:
- 24 Friedel – 6
Despite being on the losing side, was virtually a spectator.
- 02 Walker – 6
Had plenty of the ball, but didn’t do an awful lot with it.
- 05 Vertonghen – 6
Demands the ball at left-back, where even out of position, he is arguably the best in the league.
- 20 Dawson – 4
Turned by Remy for the goal horribly, and could lose his place if he plays like this again. Shocker.
- 06 Chiriches (Kaboul – 45′ ) – 5 & 5
The Romanian loves dribbling the ball out from the back, but had to come off at half-time with a broken nose.
- 19 Dembélé (Sandro – 45′ ) 5 & 6
Gave the ball away far too often, and was hauled off for the ineffective Sandro at half-time.
- 17 Townsend – 6
Quite predictable. Is so direct that the defenders could stand off and let him run into the corner ineffectively.
- 08 Paulinho – 7
Probably Spurs best player, and broke well from midfield.
- 23 Eriksen – 5
Delivered some beautiful crosses for Soldado, but looked completely out of sorts in the second half.
- 22 Sigurdsson (Defoe – 69′ ) – 6
Denied a goal by a wonderful Tim Krul save, but struggled to implement his style on games.
- 09 Soldado – 6
Was unlucky not to score, and generally linked up play well.
