As a team, Tottenham fell way short of expectations in the first leg of their Europa League clash with Belgian sign Gent. But how did they perform individually?
Hugo Lloris, 6
Could do little about the goal and made a top save that might have kept Spurs in the tie. But his distribution was inconsistent at best.
Kyle Walker, 5
Improved when pushed forward in the first ten minutes of the second half. Looked rusty and wasteful before and after that spell.
Toby Alderweireld, 5
You know it’s a bad day when Alderweireld is outfought. Made a couple of needless errors and lacked his usual composure.
Eric Dier, 5
Stepped out and missed his interception in the build-up to the goal. Although that happened after the formation change, Dier did look slightly better on the right of a back three.
Ben Davies, 5
Like Dier, Davies looked better in a back three. Offered very little going forward as a left-back in the first half and struggled defensively with no protection (again).
Victor Wanyama, 6
Was more accurate than most with his passing. Primarily remained deep to give others freedom to roam — he didn’t stand out but did very little of note.
Harry Winks, 7
Impressive in the first half, particularly with his confident, purposeful passing. Was a bit more ropey after the break. Still, Spurs’ best player.
Mousa Dembele, 5
Drove forward more than usual but should have taken more risks. Did get a couple of shots away when moved up to the No. 10 role, but his final product was far from on point.
Moussa Sissoko, 4
As apathetic on the left hand side in the second half as he was on the right in the first. Didn’t press, and his deliveries were dreadful.
Dele Alli, 5
His fizzing first half effort nearly gave Spurs the lead, but he was ineffective after that. Tried to con the referee with a bad dive and was later booked for dissent.
Harry Kane, 5
Hit the post with a rare goalscoring opportunity. Other than that nothing really dropped for him. Ran until the end but looked drained.
Heung-Min Son, 5
Barely contributed during his 25-minute cameo.
Georges-Kevin N’Koudou, 5
Did even less than Son.
Christian Eriksen, N/A
Did his best to unlock Gent but was inaccurate with his final ball.
