Tottenham’s 100% start to the Premier League season came to a screeching halt in Saturday’s woeful 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace.
Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.
Hugo Lloris, 4 – His poor early roll-out to Eric Dier was a sign of things to come for the team.
Emerson Royal, 4 – Stopped Wilfried Zaha a couple of times one-on-one but most of Palace’s threat came down his side.
Japhet Tanganga, 3 – Was doing fine until his two stupid yellow cards gave Palace the impetus.
Eric Dier, N/A – Had no time to impress after suffering a pretty serious-looking injury in the opening stages.
Sergio Reguilon, 4 – His defensive positioning was all over the place and all of his crosses were blocked.
Oliver Skipp, 4 – Not adventurous enough on the ball and a bit sloppy throughout.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 2 – Constantly put his teammates under pressure with poor passes and was wasteful on the break.
Harry Winks, 2 – Again showed he just can’t do it at this level any longer.
Dele Alli, 4 – A bystander for the most part. Produced one excellent goal-saving block.
Lucas Moura, 3 – Made a bright start until he started constantly losing the ball.
Harry Kane, 3 – Barely involved in the final third and couldn’t make anything happen in deeper areas.
Joe Rodon, 4 – Replaced Dier. Did OK but fell apart late on with the rest of the team.
Ben Davies, 2 – Came on after the red card. Gave away the penalty and was all over the place defensively.
