While the Europa League continues to be treated as something of a sideshow by Spurs, is there anything we learned from last night’s game as far as the playing personnel were concerned? Did anyone stand out enough to be rewarded with a step up to the first team and did the side indicate that they were capable enough to be trusted when the tougher Europa games come around?
After the game, manager Harry Redknapp was effusive in his praise for a number of players: “Tom Carroll in midfield, a fantastic little footballer, showed great stamina and kept the ball well. I was really pleased with him.
“Harry Kane worked hard, Jake Livermore is still only a young lad as well and that game will have done them all the world of good.”
Carlo Cudicini earned some praise as well, but Yago Falque was arguably the best player on the night and came closest to breaking the deadlock.
Overall, did any player stand out enough to suggest that they have a bright future at White Hart Lane?
