Tottenham were left frustrated after playing out a goalless draw with Swansea City at Wembley. It was a bit of a flat team performance from Spurs against a visiting team that came to defend. So how did Mauricio Pochettino’s men do individually?
Hugo Lloris, 6
Had almost nothing to do. Distribution slightly dodgy in the first half.
Toby Alderweireld, 6
Composed as usual in defence. His long diagonal passes weren’t as accurate as they can be, and he misplaced a couple of crosses.
Davinson Sanchez, 7
Tammy Abraham gave him a bit of trouble but he dealt with him brilliantly for the most part. Continues to look like a great bit of business.
Jan Vertonghen, 6
Solid at the back and drove forward with the ball whenever possible, but let himself down with two or three wayward shots.
Kieran Trippier, 5
Ineffective on the right in the first half. Did even less after the break, but in fairness he isn’t a left winger.
Eric Dier, 5
Steady on the ball but too slow in starting attacks. Overhit more than one through-ball that could have led to something.
Christian Eriksen, 6
Found some gaps to exploit and tried to create some meaningful chances, one of which really should have been put away by Dele Alli. Not quite his day.
Heung-Min Son, 6
He sometimes struggled to get going from a deeper position in the first half. More advanced after the break but perhaps quieter.
Moussa Sissoko, 5
As usual he looked devoid of confidence on the ball, but did set up a chance for Harry Kane. Did very little when he moved onto the right. Subbed on the hour.
Dele Alli, 5
Got in plenty of promising positions but his touch and final product were completely absent over and over again.
Harry Kane, 6
Barely got any service. Looked dangerous whenever he was on the ball and was desperately unlucky not to score a clever header from a corner and a close range shot that hit the bar.
Serge Aurier, 6
Replaced Sissoko. Made some clever runs in behind and was unlucky not to win a penalty. His crossing could have been better.
Fernando Llorente, N/A
Had very few touches. Spurs didn’t change their game-plan to take advantage of his aerial ability whatsoever.
