Opinion: Player ratings from Tottenham’s 3-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb

Image: SpursWeb

Words cannot describe how poor the was as Spurs went crashing out of the Europa League, blowing a 2-0 lead against Dinamo Zagreb, so why not let numbers do the talking?

Hugo Lloris – 1 – Wasn’t a whole lot he could do but a captain must go down with the ship.

Serge Aurier – 1 – All the danger came down Aurier’s side. In general, he looked very sloppy and lethargic. No desire.

Davinson Sanchez – 1 – Saved Spurs in the first half with a last-ditch flick to take it away from the Zagreb attacker, but struggled hugely after that.

Eric Dier – 1 – Didn’t look dominant enough in the air or in the challenge for me. He is meant to be an experienced head out there but didn’t do enough to lead.

Ben Davies – 1 – Pretty shocking on the ball and sloppy to say the least at the back.

Harry Winks – 1 – He was brought in to keep things ticking over in the centre of the pitch but looked nervy from the start. All consistency has vanished from his game.

Moussa Sissoko – 1 – All over the place this evening. There was no solidity, no consistency to his passing, no driving runs. Shocking display from Sissoko.

Dele Alli – 1 – He had a couple of nice passes in behind to Kane and Lamela but Dele looked sloppy out there. His first touch and short-range passing was not good enough.

Erik Lamela – 1 – It looked as though Lamela was more likely to get sent off again than score or assist. Chasing shadows this evening.

Lucas Moura – 1 – At least Moura was putting in the effort, closing people down and trying to take people on. Alas, the final moment was missing.

Harry Kane – 1 – A pretty isolated figure up the top. Looked to be playing in third gear as if he could walk the game.


Gareth Bale – 1 – Came on and injected a little bit of quality, albeit not enough.

Giovani Lo Celso – 1 – Looked half a yard short after returning with some odd nice moments.

Tanguy Ndombele – 1 – Didn’t do enough for me after coming on.

Carlos Vinicius – 1 – Barely touched the ball.

Sergio Reguilon – 1 – Still without a goal this season.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Pretty much agree with you. It’s a tossup whether whether we played worse in this game or the Arsenhole game.

    Something is seriously wrong at Spurs. Not sure whether we can blame Mou 100% for this garbage, but at these players salaries…they need to at least turn up and actually play instead of wondering around the pitch like lost sheep.

    Absolutely disgusted with Spurs ATM and I have been a Spurs supporter for pushing 70 years.

  2. Agree with the sentiment with all the ‘1s’ but doesn’t help identify the worst offenders e.g. Aurier (who was as at least as bad as Doherty at Ar*e) Dier and Sissoko.
    Just a shocking embarrassment of a performance.

  3. Surprised some of these players even managed a one, I do agree with you assessment though. I really should not write down how disgusted I am with this club right now as it will probably get me banned from this site. Jose needs to go now and take half of these players with him. I’ve never been so embarrassed to be a Spurs fan in my life and I’m as old as f***.

  4. Generous for some, harsh on Lo Celso who made some effort. Jose can leave and take Aurier, Doherty, Dier, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, and Dele with him, send Lloris to PSG and kick Vinicius and Bale back where they came from. With the money raised we can buy Pope, a decent right back, two centre backs and a creative midfielder.
    Forgot, kick Hart into touch too. Yeah, and Lamela.
    Then build our team around Tanganga, Cirkin, Skipp, white, Devine, Parrot, Etete, Scarlett, Whiteman and a couple more kids who want to wear the shirt.
    Add Lo Celso, N’DOMBELE, Son, Kane, Moura, and a decent manager that plays the Spurs way, where is our Jurgen, our Klinsmann?

  5. Get dier back in midfield.give that back four some cover.as a defender he is dire.hes not a great passer but he’s a good cruncher and will give us some bite again.teams arent scared of our midfield anymore.
