Spurs player ratings – 3 for a player many fans wanted to start, and a surprise 4



Tottenham laboured to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon.

Son Heung-min opened the scoring 15 minutes into the second half after the Blades had been the better side for an hour.

Sheffield United were eventually rewarded for their efforts when Chris Basham equalised in the 77th minute.

Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.

Paulo Gazzaniga, 6 – Made a couple of good saves. Distribution was inconsistent.

Serge Aurier, 4 – Wasted the chance to cross pretty much every time he got into a good position.

Eric Dier, 3 – Many wanted him to start after midweek, but he was woeful. Booked inside a minute and gave the ball away constantly.

Davinson Sanchez, 5 – Some vital last ditch defending to get Dier out of trouble. Not perfect himself, though.

Ben Davies, 4 – Offered very little going forward and failed to deal with George Baldock for the equaliser.

Moussa Sissoko, 5 – Didn’t give the back four enough protection and lacked his usual drive.

Tanguy Ndombele, 6 – Spurs’ best player in the first half before being forced off at half-time with a groin problem.

Giovani Lo Celso, 6 – Looked to make things happen in the first half. Lost a bit of energy but his effort was admirable.

Dele Alli, 6 – Really hit and miss with his flicks and final ball but was often the one to open the visitors up.

Son Heung-min, 7 – Always looked like the one who would break the deadlock and showed hunger to score his goal.

Harry Kane, 4 – A rare low rating for Kane, who looked tired and just couldn’t get the ball out of his feet.


Harry Winks, 5 – Replaced Ndombele at half-time and didn’t do much to suggest he was unfairly left out.

Juan Foyth, N/A – Came on for Alli when Spurs were 1-0 up. Failed to add any defensive stability.

Lucas Moura, N/A – Introduced too late to make a difference. Nearly grabbed the winner.


  1. Spurs now look like an average team..I am a very disappointed fan…Out of 13 games so far, they have been able to win only 3…That is poor…The team needs new blood, a new Manager and some new players to replace some deadweight like Dyer, Davies and Aurier…

  2. Can’t believe I’m saying this but it s time for the boss to go and introduce new thinking and new players were still a great club just not a great team and like any business it’s only as good as it’s management

  3. Poch is not a winner he just picks hes yes men Dier Davies Kane ( still not fit looks shagged out and bored ) i think Poch has lost the players time for a change Spurs will win nothing with Poch he dose not inspire players anymore sitting / standing on the side with no clues as what to do jump before hes pushed I.M.O along with Levy & Enic
