Tottenham Hotspur continued their winning streak this weekend with a 3-0 victory over Preston North End in the FA Cup.
Let’s take a look at how the individual players got on:
Fraser Forster – 6 – Didn’t have any work to do really but looked confident with the ball at his feet and made a couple of good claims.
Matt Doherty – 5 – Wasn’t really in the game at right-wing-back. Struggled to get involved in behind and wasn’t at his best on the ball. Eventually replaced by Emerson Royal.
Japhet Tanganga – 5 – Always looks a little too eager to win the ball back, giving away plenty of fouls. Also gave the ball away in a dangerous area to start a Preston attack in the second half.
Davinson Sanchez – 6 – Not too much defensive work to do but won the ball back on the front foot a few times and captained the side well, earning a clean sheet.
Clement Lenglet – 6.5 – Knocked the ball around really nicely and regularly stepped out of defence to start attacks. In games like these that include more attacking than defending, he thrives.
Ryan Sessegnon – 5 – Got into so many nice positions but struggles to consistently deliver crosses of the required quality. With Perisic and Udogie for company next year, he needs to up his game.
Rodrigo Bentancur – 7 – It was a bit of a walk in the park for him at times. You get the impression he didn’t need to get out of third gear to keep Spurs ticking over and did his job well.
Yves Bissouma – 6 – A better game for the summer signing. He was solid off the ball and kept things simple on the ball, which is what you want from him as he feels his way into life at Spurs.
Dejan Kulusevski – 7 – He wasn’t at his most effective but Deki always looks to make things happen. It didn’t always come off today, but he claimed an assist and went close a couple of times.
Ivan Perisic – 7 – Played up front for the majority of the game, which we haven’t seen from him yet at Spurs. I was so impressed with his work rate and he looked to get involved all over the pitch. He always gives you 100 per cent.
Heung-min Son – 9 – The difference-maker today. Sonny was in desperate need of a confidence boost and hopefully a brace will do that. Looked rusty on the ball at times but that finishing is still top class on his weak foot.
Arnaut Danjuma – 7 – Came off the bench to score on his debut. What more can you ask?!
Oliver Skipp – 7 – Looked really impressive when breaking up the play and driving with the ball at his feet.
Emerson Royal – 5 – Came on for 20 minutes and was involved in a few attacks, but nothing of major note.
Bryan Gil – N/A
