Tottenham’s unbeaten run came to an end following a 2-0 defeat against Chelsea in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi final.

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

Hugo Lloris, 6 – Helpless with either goal. Made a save from Timo Werner to stop it from going 3-0.

Davinson Sanchez, 4 – Couldn’t prevent Kai Havertz’s shot from going in and then gave away a silly free-kick which led to the second goal, which came after he made a fine tackle on Romelu Lukaku.

Japhet Tanganga, 3 – Disastrous evening. Conceded possession and then allowed Kai Havertz to get in behind for the first before his header went in off Davies in what was a calamitous second goal.

Ben Davies, 5 – Unfortunately credited with the own goal, although by no fault of is own. One of Tottenham’s better players on the day, although that doesn’t say much.

Emerson Royal, 4 – Offered very little going forward once again.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 4 – Another extremely poor display from the midfielder and was lucky that it wasn’t him replaced by Winks.

Oliver Skipp, 5 – Kept plugging away, with little reward.

Matt Doherty, 5 – Didn’t do too much wrong, but was hooked at half-time.

Lucas Moura, 4 – Acrobatically volleyed over, but couldn’t get into the game like he has done in previous weeks.

Heung Min Son, 3 – His dreadful away form continued with another quiet performance.

Harry Kane, 5 – Isolated for the majority of the game. Did come close to scoring with a free-kick, but he was hardly involved.


Tanguy Ndombele, 5 – Almost bundled home late on.

Harry Winks, 5 – Kept the ball well, but unable to influence proceedings.

Giovani Lo Celso, N/A – Had Spurs’ best chances late on, but was unable to beat Kepa from Gil’s cut-back.

Bryan Gil, N/A – Added a late spark and created a chance for Lo Celso following a superb run.



  1. It prove that Spurs really need new Central defender urgently not wait till last minute or never
    Forget about the money Go and get new Central defender and striker to support Kane

  2. Tangana gets the blame for both goals but Royal didn’t make a better angle to receive by dropping back & Alonso probably ran 10 yards more & quicker to intercept than Royal. The second with Tanganna heading away towards the touchline, the real question is what was Davies doing jumping without being under pressure BUT facing his own goal. Body position awful giving every chance of an own goal. But let’s all blame Tangana instead.
