Opinion: Ranking every Tottenham player out of 10 for the 2022/23 season

It has been a tough season for Tottenham Hotspur, with many of the current players struggling to find anything close to their best form over the past 8 months.

With the end of the campaign approaching, I thought it was as good a time as any to grade each Spurs star on their performances this year.

Before I start grading the players, I would like to note that I am not grading players that are out on loan now. Also, 1 will be the lowest ranking possible and 10 is the highest.

Hugo Lloris: 3/10

In what seems to be his last season at the club, Hugo Lloris has had a very poor season in my opinion; looking like a shadow of his former self.

Fraser Forster: 7/10

Forster has certainly stepped up in the absence of Lloris, looking calm and assured in between the sticks. He also saved a penalty against Nottingham Forest- a notable highlight of his season.

Emerson Royal: 6.5/10

When getting sent off against Arsenal earlier this season, it looked as though Emerson’s days at Tottenham were numbered. But now it looks as though he has turned his career around and has recently transitioned into a centre-back playing on the right of the back 3.

Cristian Romero: 7/10

On his day, there are no arguments that Romero is one of the best defenders in the league and he is shown glimpses of that this season. He is by far our most important defender, and I’m sure he will have another good campaign next year.

Japhet Tanganga: 4/10

It is hard to judge Japhet Tanganga’s season as he has rarely played, but when he started against Brentford on boxing day he looked out of his depth against Ivan Toney.

Davinson Sanchez: 3/10

After coming on against Bournemouth, and conceding 2 goals, Davinson Sanchez was booed off by Spurs supporters. That really does sum up his season, below par.

Ivan Perisic: 6.5/10

In what has been a mixed campaign for the Croatian, I feel Perisic is slightly over-hated by Spurs fans. Solid 6.5 for me.

Ben Davies: 6/10

Another steady season for Davies, most notably he has now moved into a LWB role and it seems to suit him.

Ryan Sessegnon: 5/10

An underwhelming campaign for Sessegnon, who was yet again plagued by injuries.

Clement Lenglet: 6.5/10

A good loan spell for Lenglet, I wouldn’t be against signing him permanently.

Eric Dier: 4/10

A poor campaign from Dier, in my opinion, his defensive frailties have been exposed far too often.

Rodrigo Bentancur: 9/10

I would have given Bentancur a 10/10 if he wasn’t injured as I am sure he would certainly have continued his imperious form. Very good campaign from “Lolo.”

Pape Sarr: 6/10

A promising debut campaign from Sarr, when he has played he has looked very calm and collected on the ball and I look forward to seeing more of him next season.

Oliver Skipp: 7/10

Oliver Skipp has had a very underrated campaign in my books, capping it off with a stunner against Chelsea.

Pierre- Emile Hojbjerg: 7/10

Another solid campaign from “The Viking”. Although, performances in recent weeks have dropped off slightly.

Yves Bissouma: 5.5/10

Sadly, we haven’t seen the “real” Bissouma this season and I feel there is plenty more to come from him in a Spurs shirt.

Pedro Porro: 6.5/10

Even though he has only been here since January, I have been very impressed with Porro’s performances so far. However, his defensive abilities have been questioned at times but I’m sure he will improve.

Heung Min Son: 6.5/10

A mixed campaign from Sonny, he will certainly look to get back to his best (which I know he can) next season.

Lucas Moura: 3/10

Those cameos against Liverpool and Everton sum up Lucas’ season. Poor.

Richarlison: 4.5/10

With only 1 league goal to his name this season it is fair to say Richy has room to improve. I have faith that he will do so next season and push on.

Arnaut Danjuma: 6/10

When he has played, Danjuma has certainly impressed me. It is a shame he hasn’t got the game time he deserves.

Dejan Kulusevski: 5/10

Deki has shown glimpses of quality this season but hasn’t quite been as good as I hoped. I certainly feel he will deliver next season.

Harry Kane: 10/10

I am running out of words to describe Harry Kane. This season Kane has been deadly in front of goal and I hope Spurs do everything in their power to keep him at the club. One of our own.
