PLAYER RATINGS: Tottenham 3-0 Aston Villa

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Dom Le Roy

Hugo Lloris – Rarely tested but did what we had to do.

Kyle Naughton – Defensively solid and showed impressive attacking endeavour, finding himself in and around the Villa penalty area on a number of occasions.

Michael Dawson – Competent at the back and displayed a surprisingly wide range of passing.

Vlad Chiriches – Today was a return to the cultured and classy Romanian of AVB’s time, although he was admittedly hardly troubled.

Danny Rose – Better from Rose. Maybe he realised that he was playing for his place in the side next season.

Sandro – Nice to see Sandro back and today was certainly a massive step-up from his last few appearances. Relished his defensive duty with the offensive left to the other midfielders.

Paulinho – Excellent performance today from Brazilian and capped with a goal. Whether he wears Lilywhite next season remains to be seen but I hope he is given another season to demonstrate his true ability – particularly if he has an impressive World Cup.

Christian Eriksen – So classy. A relaxed and probing performance from the Dane, who has had a sensational second half to the season.

Gylfi Sigurdsson – Quietest of the midfield but still a decent performance. May be the last time he is seen in a Lilywhite shirt if new pastures offering more first team football are sought.

Harry Kane – Missed a lot of excellent chances but got himself into great positions again and again, making many intelligent runs.

Emmanuel Adebayor – Characterised his impressive second half of season with a hard-working, enjoyable display, and capped it with a goal.


Milos Veljkovic – Mature and composed in defensive midfield. Certainly a prospect for the future. We’ve won every game he’s played in…

Nabil Bentaleb – Similarly composed, looked to test the keeper.

Alex Pritchard – Didn’t see much of the ball but great to see another Spurs youngster make his first team debut. A tremendous day for him.


COYS for next season!

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Hard to make a real judgement as Villa were so awful. But Kane showed his limitations again. Its not about experience or potential……..he lacks pace and he hasn't any real skill or trick to compensate.

  2. If you are looking to play youngsters, which we are, it's about time we gave Tom Carrol his chance, always plays his heart out, and looks for the telling pass.
