Tottenham got back to winning ways by beating Chelsea 5-4 on penalties in the fourth-round of the Carabao Cup.

All five of Spurs’ spot-kicks were successful before Mason Mount struck the post, which had come after Erik Lamela cancelled out Tim Werner’s early opener in normal-time.

Here’s how we rated the players on the day:

Hugo Lloris, 6 – Couldn’t get near Werner’s goal, nor any of Chelsea’s penalties.

Serge Aurier, 7 – Steady performance – got forward well at right wing-back.

Toby Alderweireld, 7 – Relatively comfortable evening for the Belgian, whose outstanding diagonal pass found Regulion in the build-up to Lamela’s equaliser.

Eric Dier, 7 – Defended well and stuck away his penalty.

Japhet Tanganga, 5 – Looked really off the pace early on in his first appearance of the campaign, in which he made a few needless errors.

Gedson Fernandes, 6 – Missed a golden opportunity to score his first Tottenham goal in the first-half. Tidy in possession and got around the pitch well, however.

Moussa Sissoko, 6 – Worked hard, but struggled to influence proceedings.

Tanguy Ndombele, 7 – Could barely move in the latter stages, which epitomised himself in recent weeks. So confident in possession, Chelsea couldn’t get near him.

Sergio Regulion, 8 – Gave the ball away cheaply for Chelsea’s goal, but recovered well and put in an excellent showing on his debut. Almost levelled with a powerful strike at the beginning of the second-half before atoning for his error by assisting the equaliser.

Steven Bergwijn, 6 – Desperately needs a goal. Quiet first-half, although he improved after the break, but snatched at his few opportunities.

Erik Lamela, 8 – Worked extremely hard and put in a huge shift. Was in the right place to score the all-important goal before converting once more from 12-yards in the shoot-out.


Pierre-Emily Hojbjerg, 6 – Replaced Gedson, which helped Spurs gain control. Scored from the spot.

Harry Kane, N/A – Had one sight at goal, but curled over. He was never missing in the shoot-out was he?

Lucas Moura, N/A – Scored the penalty.
