Tottenham’s miserable Premier League form continued following a 2-1 defeat to London rivals West Ham.
Michail Antonio opened the scoring before Jesse Lingard doubled the Hammers’ advantage early in the second period, meaning Lucas Moura’s header was just a consolation.
Hugo Lloris, 5 – Hardly covered himself in glory for the opener. Made a sharp stop from Craig Dawson’s header.
Japhet Tanganga, 5 – Steady performance before he was hooked at half-time having not done too much wrong.
Eric Dier, 3 – Absolute shocker for the opener, which was the start of another extremely ropey afternoon.
Davinson Sanchez, 3 – Embarrassing attempt at stopping Lingard for West Ham’s second.
Sergio Regulion, 6 – Returned to the side and provided some much-needed energy down the left for Spurs.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 5 – Another really below-par afternoon for the Dane, who was all over the place at times during the opening period. Improved after the break.
Tanguy Ndombele, 6 – Showed his usual nice touches and kept working hard in order to get Tottenham up the pitch.
Heung Min Son, 6 – Created good chances for Lucas in either half and almost made it 2-2 in stoppage-time in freak circumstances, but his effort came back off the inside of the post.
Erik Lamela, 7 – His early run and pass created Tottenham’s first chance of the game for Kane. The Argentine then went close himself with a curling effort but was taken off at the break after picking up another needless booking.
Lucas Moura, 6 – Offered nothing in the first-half but came alive in the second. Scored an excellent header to make it 2-1 before firing over moments later when he should have done much better.
Harry Kane, 6 – Saw a few first-half efforts saved by Lukas Fabianski before his free-kick whistled just past the post after the break. Squandered a guilt-edge chance to set up either Alli or Son, who were both in the middle.
Gareth Bale, 8 – Replaced Lamela at the break and really took control of proceedings. Had an early effort saved by Fabianski before his corner was headed home by Moura. Moments later he was so unfortunate to see his rasping half-volley crash off the crossbar. Despite the defeat it was a really positive performance from the Welshman, who simply has to start now.
Matt Doherty, 4 – Didn’t do enough for West Ham’s second, whilst his crossing was awful.
Dele Alli, 5 – Struggled to get into the game.
