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.
