Tottenham Hotspur pulled off a remarkable two-leg victory over Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Son Heung-min’s double and a fortunate Fernando Llorente goal were enough to send Spurs through despite losing 4-3 on the night.
Here’s how every Tottenham player rated on the night.
Hugo Lloris, 6 – Conceded four goals and but made a couple of important saves.
Kieran Trippier, 5 – Torn apart by Raheem Sterling for his two goals but grew into the game and defended well after the break.
Toby Alderweireld, 7 – Difficult to rate the centre-backs who were under constant pressure and mostly came out on top.
Jan Vertonghen, 7 – Partnered his countryman effectively against a relentless Manchester City attack.
Danny Rose, 6 – The superb Kevin de Bruyne did a lot of his work down Rose’s side so you can excuse some of his failings on the night.
Moussa Sissoko, 6 – Lasted 40 minutes before limping off injured. Spurs lost a bit of control after his exit.
Victor Wanyama, 5 – A really mixed night for the Kenyan. Made some crucial tackles but tired quickly and couldn’t deal with De Bruyne.
Dele Alli, 7 – Had to drop deep to fill in for Sissoko. Composed whenever Spurs could counter and did well considering he was wearing an arm cast.
Christian Eriksen, 6 – Gave Spurs control in attack but, my word – extremely fortunate with the VAR call at the end after giving the ball away.
Lucas Moura, 7 – Was the main outlet on the counter, particularly in the first half when he had a hand in Son’s goals.
Son Heung-min, 9 – Absolutely instrumental once again. Spurs simply wouldn’t have won the tie without his goals.
Fernando Llorente, 6 – Did almost nothing apart from scoring the all-important third goal.
Ben Davies, N/A
Davinson Sanchez, N/A
Wanyama was tremendous played out of his body 8
Danny Rose had a nightmare game -4
Toby Aldeweireld not himself should have got his head on Sterling’s first goal but chose to get out of the way-6
Christian Erikksen – Did absoloutely nothing but will get an asist after Moura did all the work for Sons goal. Jogged around as usual never getting a foot in . City players just ghost by him all day. He was awful and his give away at the end on top of a horrible performance almost cost us again. Gutless , and we needed a big effort from him. Just not competitive enough. I will be happy if someone actually does make an offer for him. Erikksen-3.5
you must be a gooner
Since when did Lloris concède Only 3 goals….?????
In a previous report the same reporter stated that Troy Parrott was turning 18 this summer; since when is February 2020(when Parrott does turn 18) in the summer.
This is shocking reporting.
