Tottenham Hotspur well and truly kissed their top-four hopes goodbye this evening with another lacklustre performance against a top-six side.
Let’s take a look at how the individual players got on in the 3-1 loss to United:
Hugo Lloris – 5 – Made a couple of really good saves but should have done better with the final United goal.
Serge Aurier – 6.5 – Just looks a more dynamic player on that right-hand side than Spurs’ other options. Unfortunately, he wasn’t quite clinical enough today.
Eric Dier – 6.5 – Back in the side on the right of a central duo and there were positive signs with a couple of good blocks. However, he also let Cavani run in behind unmarked too often.
Joe Rodon – 6 – A few little signs of inexperience but the raw blocking, heading and tackling is promising from Rodon. Could be a real player with more game time.
Sergio Reguilon – 4 – The Spaniard’s passing was a bit off today and he wasn’t able to be too much of an attacking threat down the left. He also played everyone onside for United’s second goal and got stepped for the third.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 5 – Did well in bits and pieces but United were able to bypass his press all too easily this evening. End of the season fatigue?
Tanguy Ndombele – 5 – A little restricted due to United’s packed midfield and didn’t show enough when pushed into the number 10 role.
Lucas Moura – 7 – Did very well to assist Son’s opener and also worked hard when tracking back to help Aurier on the right side.
Giovani Lo Celso – 4 – Still looks very rusty since returning from injury. Not surprised he was taken off at around the hour mark.
Heung-min Son – 7.5 – Took his goal very well and made it look easier than it was. Beyond that, Sonny worked his socks off out there today. Unfortunately, it was not enough.
Harry Kane – 7 – Not one of his loudest performances but Kane created the opening goal. Unfortunately, the United defence dealt with him well.
Moussa Sissoko – 4 – Came on to solidify and Spurs conceded another two.
Erik Lamela – 4 – Barely got on the ball after coming on.
Gareth Bale – N/A – Too little, too late.
