The pressure was cranked up on Nuno Espirito Santo as Tottenham lost 3-0 to Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
Strikes from Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford consigned the hosts to another goalless defeat. Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.
Hugo Lloris, 6 – Could do little about three excellent finishes.
Emerson Royal, 6 – One of the only players who successful dribbled forward with the ball. His crossing could have been better.
Cristian Romero, 6 – Exposed at the back at times but he progressed the ball far better than the entire midfield.
Eric Dier, 4 – All over the place defensively and his long balls were almost always inaccurate.
Ben Davies, 3 – Quite simply not good enough to be starting league games for Spurs anymore. Really poor on the ball.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 4 – Did his best to press but his final product was absolutely nowhere to be seen.
Oliver Skipp, 3 – Struggled to cope in midfield and gave the ball away for the second goal. Hooked straight after that.
Giovani Lo Celso, 2 – I feel sorry for him. Tried to move Spurs forward but got it wrong with everything he attempted. Booed by a large number of fans.
Lucas Moura, 5 – Wasn’t playing well enough but shouldn’t have been the first player to be substituted. At least he was trying.
Son Heung-min, 5 – As usual he was Spurs’ biggest threat by a distance, but things just didn’t come off for him.
Harry Kane, 2 – Like Lo Celso there was a lot of booing for the lethargic Kane, who looked disinterested and massively low on quality.
Steven Bergwijn, 3 – Added absolutely nothing for 40 minutes.
Tanguy Ndombele, N/A – Didn’t have the required impact.
Dele Alli, N/A – See above.
