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.



  1. here we go again. Said it many times it is the same old Spurs. No one has the passion to correct themselves on the pitch. The B.. lot were dreadful !! No one gets more than 1 point bar Winks 2.5 who tried but useless support. Kane should find a new place where he ‘may’ become better. I see already the fame has peaked him!
    Bring back Defoe, Sigurdssen (?) and also Bentaleb in a forward role.
    Say what you want.. but our end of 2016/17 has started . Lucky if we finish 8th! Waste of time. We will always be middle of the road jokers 🙂 🙂 🙂
