Timo Werner’s second-half penalty left Spurs with a mountain to climb in their Champions League last 16 tie against RB Leipzig after the Bundesliga outfit claimed a 1-0 victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

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

Hugo Lloris, 8 – Couldn’t have given more for his side. Made a number of excellent saves.

Serge Aurier, 4 – A poor performance from the full-back, who was defensively shaky and showed a lack of quality in the final-third – squandering a host of good crossing opportunities.

Toby Alderweireld, 6 – Much better than he was at Aston Villa on Sunday and generally dealt with most that came his way.

Davinson Sanchez, 7 – Got his head or foot on the end of everything.

Ben Davies, 4 – Was typically solid until his clumsy challenge gave Leipzig a penalty.

Harry Winks, 7 – Struggled in the opening quarter, but grew into the game after then and kept Tottenham ticking all evening.

Gedson Fernandes 5, – Handed his first start by Jose Mourinho and looked nervous early on, misplacing a few passes. Worked hard, though, and produces some really good crosses before he was expectedly taken off.

Giovani Lo Celso, 8 – By far Spurs’ best player on the day. Hardly wasted a pass all evening and came within the width of the post of capping his display with a stunning goal.

Steven Bergwijn, 5 – Forced a good save from Peter Gulacsi early on, but that was as good as it got for the Dutchman, who faded in the second period.

Dele Alli, 6 – Showed some really impressive touches and was extremely unfortunate to be hooked. No wonder he looked surprised.

Lucas Moura, 6 – Given a hopeless task against an organised Leipzig defence, but should have converted a late header from close-range.


Tanguy Ndombele, 6 – Gave Spurs some much-needed energy and should be starting every week.

Erik Lamela, 6 – Typically Lamela-like performance. Strong in the tackle and got the crowd up from the moment he was introduced.



  1. Thinking these numbers are way too generous.
    Lo Celso was by far our best player. Other than that nobody above a 6 including hugo.
    Jose is just too negative when it comes to important games. It will be the same against Chelski.

  2. Parrot may not be ready but why not just give him a chance we wont know unless we try him instead of putting square pegs in round holes what have we got to loose ( could save Levy a packet the tight arse )
