Opinion: Player ratings from Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Everton

Tottenham Hotspur dropped two points on the road this afternoon, playing out a 2-2 draw against Everton in the Premier League. Let’s take a look at how the individual players got on:

Tottenham Player Ratings vs Everton

Goodison Park Everton

Guglielmo Vicario – 7 – I’m afraid every single team is now going to put a player on Vicario from corners to shove him around. Foul or no foul, he is going to have find a way to deal with it and be stronger. It’s a shame because his defending from all but one of the corners was superb, but that won’t be the story.

Pedro Porro – 7 – His set pieces didn’t quite hit the mark today but some of his passing in tight areas down the right side was superb. He also defended his channel very well and Everton didn’t get much joy down their left.

Cristian Romero – 7 – A classic no-nonsense Romero performance where he manages to walk the right side of the line. Strong in the challenge and was able to push forward in possession with the safety net of Micky behind him. Have to mark him down one point for the very unlucky own goal though. Sorry, Cristian.

Micky Van de Ven – 9 – Just incredible. This lad is going to the very top. Everything he does is done with thought and purpose. Countless shows of pace to recover the ball with perfect sliding challenges, but Van de Ven was also superb on the ball.

Destiny Udogie – 8 – He may have had defensive issues in mid-week, but Udogie provided another instant reminder of how deadly he is going forward with a superb cut-back assist.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 7 – Never gets the plaudits he deserves when he plays well. Hojbjerg was very steady this afternoon, and Spurs needed that amongst the creativity of Bentancur and Maddison.

Rodrigo Bentancur – 6 – Not at the races today really. Much like the Brentford game, he struggled to keep up with the pace of the game. He may still be recovering from those long-term injuries. Still had a few nice moments on the ball though.

James Maddison – 8 – Flashes of brilliance this afternoon. Maddison picked up some lovely pockets and transitioned Spurs from comfortable possession to dangerous attack superbly. Claimed a one-yard assist for Richarlison’s goal too.

Brennan Johnson – 6.5 – Wasn’t too involved in the game today. I wish Spurs had made more use of that pace down the right. His highlight was a lovely early cross to create a chance for Werner.

Richarlison – 8 – This man cannot stop scoring at the moment! Got Spurs off to a flyer with a superb finish into the top corner against his old club. And when Tottenham were up against it, looking second best, he curled another into the top bin!

Timo Werner – 6 – Had a couple of good chances to score (albeit one was offside in the end) and he looked a little nervous in front of goal. Hopefully, once the first goal comes, he will be fine.


Pape Matar Sarr – 6 – Came on to add fresh legs and was so neat and tidy on the ball, as well as a defensive asset off it.

Dejan Kulusevski – 5 – Came on for Johnson and had a couple of nice moments in attack, including a slide pass to set up a chance for Richarlison. Gave away that daft free-kick that cost Tottenham though.

Bryan Gil – N/A

Oliver Skipp – N/A

Radu Dragusin – N/A
