Goals from Moussa Sissoko and Heung Min Son were enough to send Tottenham to the Carabao Cup final following a 2-0 win over Brentford.

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

Hugo Lloris, 6 – Hardly required to make a save all evening, although he flapped for Ivan Toney’s disallowed goal and got away with it.

Serge Aurier, 7 – Recovered from a shaky opening period to make a goal-saving block from Toney at 1-0. Should’ve added a second moments later up the other end, however.

Eric Dier, 7 – Led by example in what was a strong defensive display from the Englishman.

Davinson Sanchez, 6 – Looked for all the world like he was going to concede a penalty for Toney’s second-half chance, although he somehow didn’t. Coped well against the Brentford striker generally, though.

Sergio Regulion, 6 – Back in the starting line-up after his COVID-19 issues saw him drop to the bench against Leeds, and it was his excellent cross that created Sissoko’s opener.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 7 – Did his usual job of mopping up everything that came his way and was fortunate to avoid serious injury late on following a dangerous tackle that Josh Dasilva was sent off for.

Moussa Sissoko, 7 – Opened the the scoring with an excellent header, and energetic all evening.

Tanguy Ndombele, 8 – Another excellent display from the Frenchman, who topped off his first 90 minutes of the season with an outstanding assist for Son’s goal.

Lucas Moura, 6 – Came within a whisker of doubling Tottenham’s lead with a first-half header, but still not showing enough quality to force his way into the Premier League side.

Son Heung-min, 7 – Had one effort saved soon after Sissoko’s opener, but when another chance arrived his way he smashed home to seal Tottenham’s place in the final.

Harry Kane, 6 – Wasn’t his night. Struggled for service in the first-half, where his touch was unusually sloppy. Denied by Raya late on from close-range when he should’ve scored.


Ben Davies, 6 – Helped see the game out.

Harry Winks, 6 – Came on to help Spurs keep the ball for the final 20 minutes.

Japhet Tanganga, N/A – Replaced Hojbjerg in midfield following his injury.

Carlos Vinicius, N/A – Introduced for the final few seconds.
