Tottenham thrashed eighth-tier side Marine to reach the FA Cup fourth round following a 5-0 victory in Crosby.

Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.

Joe Hart, 6 – Almost embarrassed following Neil Kengni spectacular long-range strike that crashed against the crossbar. Few comfortable saves besides that awkward moment.

Matt Doherty, 7 – Should’ve opened his Tottenham account, but somehow saw his effort saved from close-range, although lucky for him, Vinicius was on hand to score the rebound.

Toby Alderweireld, 7 – Only required for the opening 45 minutes. Wasn’t troubled once.

Joe Rodon, 7 – Defended well and made some crucial first-half blocks.

Ben Davies, 7 – Professional performance from the captain, who cruised through without too many difficulties.

Harvey White, 7 – Will be disappointed not to have tested the goalkeeper from a few free-kicks, but controlled the midfield relatively well and kept Tottenham ticking over.

Moussa Sissoko, 7 – Dominated the midfielder before he was replaced at the break with his job having been done.

Gedson Fernandes, 3 – Not difficult to see why the on-loan Benfica midfielder hasn’t been involved this season. Tried too many flicks during the first-half, and showed no quality.

Lucas Moura, 7 – Should’ve done better with an early chance, but made up for be curling home a wonderful free-kick into the top-corner. Had second-half chances to add to his tally.

Dele Alli, 8 – Quiet opening 23 minutes before he burst into life by assisting Vinicius’ first goal with an inch-perfect cross. The midfielder then played a crucial part in the Brazilian’s second, picking out Doherty, whose effort was saved before the striker then tapped home.

Carlos Vinicius, 9 – Made his first domestic start for the club and marked it with a first-half hat-trick. His first two goals were from a couple of yards, but his third was sensational.


Japhet Tanganga, 6 – Very little defending to do, but got some much-needed minutes.

Alfie Devine, 7 – Became Spurs’ youngest player in their history when he replaced Moussa Sissoko at half-time and then the club’s youngest ever goalscorer, thumping home the fifth with an excellent near-post finish.

Gareth Bale, 6 – Made his comeback from injury, and almost marked his introduction by immediately getting his name on the scoresheet from a long-range free-kick.

Jack Clarke, 6 – Introduced as part of a double substitution with Bale and squandered one shooting opportunity when he took to long before teeing up White.

Sergio Regulion, 6 – Replaced the injury Davies for the final 20 minutes.
