Tottenham left it late to beat fourth tier side Wycombe Wanderers, who were incredibly unlucky to leave White Hart Lane with nothing. So how did Spurs’ fringe players perform individually?

Michel Vorm, 5

Missed his punch for the opener. Some will say he should have done better with the third Wycombe goal.

Kieran Trippier, 5

Put in some good crosses in the first half (no one was on the end of them). Did nothing after half time and went off injured when all three changes had been made.

Cameron Carter-Vickers, 4

Given a torrid time by 16st Akinfenwa, beaten to most headers and generally outfought. Gave the penalty away, too. A day to forget for the promising youngster. Give him time.

Kevin Wimmer, 5

Carter-Vickers wasn’t helped by Wimmer, who looked equally unsure about how to deal with Wycombe’s powerful attackers.

Ben Davies, 5

Steady on the ball as usual. But offered zero attacking threat when Tottenham really needed it.

Eric Dier, 6

Brought the ball out from the back as often and as quickly as possible, and displayed some incisive passing. Arguably could have shielded the back four more effectively.

Harry Winks, 6

Was one of the few players who showed up in the first half. Wasn’t as involved after the break. Booked for a Dele Alli-like angry push.

Moussa Sissoko, 4

Some of his passing was beyond inept, particularly in the first half. Improved slightly after the break, almost setting up a Vincent Janssen winner, but I think he tackled himself twice.

Josh Onomah, 4

Another tepid display will do young Onomah no favours in his quest for first team football. One too many misplaced passes saw him subbed on the hour.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, 5

Showed a lot of intent and trickery but his deliveries were poor and he often overran the ball. Taken off at half time after a knock to his knee.

Heung-Min Son, 7

Took it upon himself to create his own chances in the first half. Wasted most of them, but was rewarded after the break with two deflected yet decisive goals, including the winner.

Substitutes

Vincent Janssen, 6

Came on at half time and won a penalty, which he scored. Struggled in general play but forced a decent save before setting up the winner, playing a neat one-two with Son.

Mousa Dembele, 5

His introduction strengthened the midfield but in truth he was barely involved. Wasted a pass in a promising position late on.

Dele Alli, 6

Spurs’ saviour made it 3-3 with a nicely taken goal and improved the team’s flow in attacking areas.

  1. I said we had to pick our strongest team from the start or we would struggle and so it proved, i trust our manager will not make the same mistake in the next round.
