Opinion: Every Spurs player ranked from best to worst based on this season

Serge Aurier

Tottenham Hotspur have had an awful start to the 2019/20 season, but some players have been far worse than others in a Lilywhite shirt.

We want to take a look at the best and worst Spurs players so far this season, ranked from best to worst:

  1. Tanguy Ndombele – A new player in a new team and new country, Ndombele looks to be adapting to the Premier League well and improving every week. Two goals to his name already too.
  2. Harry Winks – Tottenham’s most consistent performer over the opening weeks, let down by some awful formations that have put him under too much pressure and run him into the ground.
  3. Heung Min Son – Always full of running and effort, both offensively and defensively. Has also been Spurs’ most direct and potent threat this season.
  4. Moussa Sissoko – Such an underrated player and has been a rock in midfield again this year. Also covered well at right-back a couple of times, despite it not being his position.
  5. Erik Lamela – A surprise but welcome package. Lamela has been one of the few players to show 100% effort so far this season and has grabbed more goals than most.
  6. Harry Kane – His goals speak for themselves, if only he had better service.
  7. Danny Rose – Has had some good games and some bad games, but definitely well worth eighth place.
  8. Hugo Lloris – Would be right up there if not for his two recent mistakes.
  9. Oliver Skipp – Judged on his one full appearance in the Carabao Cup, this lad deserves more game time.
  10. Toby Alderweireld – Not at his usual standards but still Tottenham’s best central defender.
  11. Lucas Moura – Has played a bit-part role but always looks to be a bright spark.
  12. Kyle Walker-Peters – Only managed three games at the start of the season but by no means embarrassed himself.
  13. Jan Vertonghen – Far from his best form so far this season.
  14. Dele Alli – Showed glimpses of the Dele we know and love but a long way off his best.
  15. Christian Eriksen – Started the season well and has dropped off further and further with each passing week.
  16. Davinson Sanchez – Looked shaky in the middle during the first few games, then awful at right back.
  17. Giovani Lo Celso – Looked to be making improvements during his cameos, but they were cut short by injury.
  18. Paulo Gazzaniga – Now is his big chance to shine.
  19. Ben Davies – Really struggled against Olympiacos.
  20. Eric Dier – Absolutely awful against Brighton.
  21. Victor Wanyama – Way down the pecking order and has looked rusty when played.
  22. Serge Aurier – Almost threw the game away against Southampton and was the worst performer on that humiliating night against Bayern Munich.
