Tottenham crashed out of the FA Cup on Wednesday evening following a topsy-turvy 5-4 defeat against Everton.

Here’s how we rated every Spurs player on the day:

Hugo Lloris, 5 – Made an outstanding save from Dominic Calvert-Lewin early on, but should have saved his leveller and his positioning was questionable for Everton’s final two.

Matt Doherty, 6 – Not perfect, but an improved performance from the right-back, which included one excellent cross for Son in the first-half.

Toby Alderweirelrd, 5 – Didn’t close down Richarlison quick enough for his first and got dragged out of position for his second. Provided the assist for Sanchez’s second after his header was saved, but it was a poor night for the Belgian.

Davinson Sanchez, 6 – Ended his two-year wait for a Tottenham goal by nodding home the opener. Remkarbly, the Colombian made it 3-3 with his second of the evening early in the second-half, but his positioning for Everton’s fourth and fifth goals were shocking.

Ben Davies, 5 – Made a vital first-half interception, but was given a tough second-half against Seamus Coleman.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 4 – The Dane has been enjoying a wonderful campaign, but this wasn’t his night. Gifted the ball away for Everton’s equaliser before conceding the penalty.

Tanguy Ndombele, 6 – Never stopped trying to make things happen, and Tottenham’s attacking play suffered after he was substituted.

Lucas Moura, 7 – Should have opened the scoring inside the opening 60 seconds, but somehow blazed over from close-range. Kept running all night, but his final past continues to let him down.

Erik Lamela, 8 – Spurs’ best player on the night. Saw his early header saved, but made amends by stroking home to make it 3-2 right on half-time. Produced a neat flick early in extra-time to set up Kane, who slipped at the vital moment, but he was impressive overall.

Steven Bergwijn 6 – Fired an early chance straight at the goalkeeper, and whilst he still looks dangerous when breaking, he isn’t contributing enough.

Heung Min Son, 8 – Isn’t back to his best just yet, but was involved in all four goals. Took the corner for Sanchez’s opener before playing a neat one-two with Lamela. Another corner from the South Korean led to Sanchez’s second and Tottenham’s third, before he assisted Kane’s with an outstanding inch-perfect cross to make it 4-4.

Substitutes:

Harry Kane, 7 – Left on the bench having only recently returned from injury, but didn’t need long to have his say when he make it 4-4 from close-range. But the striker will rue a guilt-edge chance missed right at the start of extra-time.

Dele Alli, 5 – Made his return to action late in normal time, but couldn’t get anything going.

Harry Winks, 3 – Replaced Ndombele after the 90 minutes, but endured a horror extra 30 minutes. Gave the ball away far too often, including for Everton’s winner.

Moussa Sissoko, N/A – Came on at right-back for Doherty in extra-time and looked rusty.

Carlos Vinicius, N/A – Not enough time to make an impact.

  1. Harry Winks is not good enough so Spurs should sell him at Summer
    I notice Hojbjerb always gave away by mistake with passing the ball three times every match
