Tottenham’s wait for a major trophy will head into a 14th campaign following a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.

Aymeric Laporte’s late header proved the difference at Wembley.

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

Hugo Lloris, 7 – Made an excellent save from Riyad Mahrez in the second period, but left totally helpless with Laporte’s late strike.

Serge Aurier, 5 – Made a perfectly-timed early challenge on Raheem Sterling, but gave away a familiar, needless free-kick which led to the winner.

Toby Alderweireld, 8 – Had Tottenham’s only shot in the opening period, and made numerous crucial last-ditch blocks to keep City at bay in what was an outstanding display.

Eric Dier, 8 – Like Alderweireld, didn’t deserve to be on the losing side. Denied a certain goal from Sterling early on with a wonderful block and was rock solid throughout.

Sergio Reguilon, 4 – Got booked early on and struggled.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 7 – Good display from the Dane, who broke up play well, although some of his passing was careless.

Harry Winks, 6 – Protected the defence decently well, but didn’t show enough quality with the ball.

Giovani Lo Celso, 4 – Had Tottenham’s best chance, but was slow and sluggish generally.

Lucas Moura, 7 – Took the game to City at times with some dangerous runs through the middle and was unfortunate to come off.

Son Heung-min, 2 – Didn’t turn up. Looked scared to run at Kyle Walker, and made zero impact.

Harry Kane, 5 – Passed a late fitness test, but it never quite happened for Tottenham’s talisman.


Moussa Sissoko, 4 – His lack of quality slowed Spurs down on the counter, and he allowed Laporte to climb above him for the goal.

Gareth Bale, 3 – Added nothing.

Dele Alli, N/A – Came on moments after City scored.

Steve Bergwijn, N/A – Introduced too late to make an impact.



  1. Spurs still haven’t learnt – Sissiko and Aurier are a tragedy waiting to happen and should be sold as far away from Spurs as possible

  2. Why Spurs players always played and pass at the back too.much
    They could not learn to play forward and pass the ball to forward not back
    Hojoberg always pass the ball to defenders instead of forward
    Did you know players passed the ball to defenders 60% too much

  3. I don’t know they keep blaming the last two coaches, the fact is the players are not good enough. Levi should go and let the club grow and develop youth and encourage players who want to play for Spurs.

  4. I agree withh everything said above what summed up the way they played was seen in the last few minutes of match we got a throw in at their 18 yard box our full back decided in his wisdom to throw it back to dier at the half way line who in turn went back to our keeper i thought we we were winning 1 nil but we were not it was sad to see that i think a big clear out is needed
