Tottenham edged past West Ham United with a 2-1 victory on Wednesday night to book a League Cup semi-final meeting with Chelsea.

First half goals from Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura – either side of a Jarrod Bowen strike – were enough to secure a place in the next round for Antonio Conte’s men.

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

Hugo Lloris, 8 – Made a number of excellent saves to keep his side ahead at crucial moments.

Davinson Sanchez, 7 – Another solid night for the Colombian who is rediscovering his confidence.

Eric Dier, 6 – Gave the ball away poorly for West Ham’s goal but otherwise another promising showing at the back.

Ben Davies, 7 – Continued his revival under Conte with another composed performance defensively.

Matt Doherty, 6 – Put a couple of dangerous balls in and did OK keeping West Ham out down his side.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 7 – Was part of a really nice interchange for the opener and did his job effectively all night.

Oliver Skipp, 7 – Another all-action performance from a player who can seemingly cover more ground than anyone.

Sergio Reguilon, 6 – Wasn’t a consistent attacking threat but made clever use of the ball whenever he could.

Lucas Moura, 7 – Took his goal well and did his best to put Spurs on the front foot throughout.

Steven Bergwijn, 8 – A brilliant goal and an even better assist, but more importantly he looked confident on the ball again for the hour he was on the pitch.

Harry Kane, 7 – Battled, pressed and passed, though he didn’t provide too much of a goal threat.


Son Heung-min, 5 – Really quiet for the most part and missed a golden chance to make it 3-1.

Harry Winks, 6 – Calmed Spurs instantly when he came on but grew a little sloppy in the latter stages.

Dele Alli, N/A – Came on with 13 minutes to go and barely saw the ball.

Emerson Royal, N/A – A late defensive switch. Did little wrong.

Japhet Tanganga, N/A – Same as Emerson, really.




  1. Eric Dier is now well known as give away the ball which leads oppent score
    Spurs defenitly needs new two central defenders in place if Sanchez and Roldon

  2. A but confusing from RAYMOND. He crticices one centre back as having a consistent fault, then says we should sell two different ones. I think we need one really class centre back. This would give us Romero Davies, plus one. Of the players he mentions I think Dier us the weakest link but a back three masks it. If we give Rodon a chance it won’t be long before Conte realises he is much calmer and better with his distribution than Dier. At present Dier us getting away with bullying centre forwards, wait until he comes up against someone physically challenging like Lukaku. We’ll see how weak he really is.
