As is the case with mid-March, we find ourselves in the dreaded international break! That is a whole two weeks without Spurs around to ruin our lives!
I wanted to take this break in the season as a chance to reflect on each of the squad’s season so far and give each player a rating out of ten.
Hugo Lloris – 7/10
As usual, Hugo has been the reliable number one this season and had more good games and moments than bad. He is, however, one of two members in the squad who have made an error leading to a goal this season.
Pierluigi Gollini – 3/10
A quite pointless signing. In his defence, he has rarely featured, however, when he has, he has not done much to fill me with confidence. Can see him moving on this summer.
Matt Doherty – 5/10
Now, this is the definition of a season of two halves. Up until around Christmas time, Doherty was poor, made mistakes and didn’t have much impact going forward. However, he has turned that around and won the admiration of many fans with some solid defensive performances and a goal to his name. Ending the season much better than it began!
Sergio Reguilon – 6/10
The young Spaniard hasn’t been poor; however, he has been underwhelming. After what I thought was a solid debut season, he just hasn’t kicked on. Still reliable, however.
Davinson Sanchez – 5/10
Despite a positive start to life under Conte, Sanchez’s mistakes crept back into his game, and he has now once again fallen out of favour.
MORE SPURS STORIES
Japhet Tanganga – 4/10
Started the season brilliantly with a Man of the Match performance against Manchester City, but let himself down away at Palace. Has been okay in spells but declined since the beginning of the season.
Ben Davies – 7/10
Overall had a positive season. His best season in a Spurs shirt yet. Been reliable defensively and adapted well to Conte’s system. Still needs improving, however.
Eric Dier – 8/10
A fantastic season for Dier which I would suggest has put him back on the England radar. Whilst he is not always everyone’s cup of tea, I think he has been fantastic this season and showed great leadership at the back.
Cristian Romero – 8/10
Our best defender this season. He hasn’t featured enough to hot a 9 due to a lengthy injury, however when he has played, he has been putting in 9/10 performances. A great acquisition!
Emerson Royal – 3/10
A terrible debut season. Whilst there is still time for improvement, Emerson’s attitude, along with his final ball, has been poor and it seems as if this signing was a waste of money. Perhaps we should have kept Aurier?
Ryan Sessegnon – 5/10
Has not featured much, but worth mentioning as he has shown signs of improvement recently and may have made that LWB position his own.
Oliver Skipp – 8/10
Arguably our player of the season. He has been mysteriously out for a while, however when in action, he has not put a foot wrong. A fantastic season and I cannot wait to see him return from injury. Might just be the boost we need at the end of this campaign.
Rodrigo Bentancur – 7/10
The rating does not reflect his performances, he just hasn’t featured enough to be an 8 overall. However, when he has played, he has been an 8 most times and looks like a great but of business. Elegant and composed on the ball, he is exactly what our midfield was crying out for. The two Juventus rejects they said!
Harry Winks – 5/10
A very disappointing season despite a decent patch of form. I think it is time for the young English midfielder to move on, for the sake of his own career.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 6/10
Reliable as ever and has formed a good partnership with Bentancur. However, despite some positive moments going forward, he hasn’t offered enough to be a 7 or 8.
Lucas Moura – 6/10
Started the season in great form and was fantastic in that number ten role. He hasn’t featured as much recently since the arrival of Kulusevski, however, was great for us before January. As ever, a reliable squad member.
Steven Bergwijn – 5/10
That rating of 5 is simply for the Leicester match alone! That fantastic moment has defined his season, however. He hasn’t contributed much else.
Dejan Kulusevski – 7/10
What a singing this has been! A player who seems to have an incredible amount of potential and has been brilliant since arriving. Slots into the front three seamlessly and is already contributing to goals. By the end of the season, his rating may very well be a 9!
Son Heung-Min – 8/10
Son has had some poor moments this season and has not been in the best form recently. However, what matters is that he still is scoring. Our top scorer in the league this season and has also chipped in with 5 assists.
Harry Kane – 9/10
Before Conte’s arrival, Kane was having a terrible season. It took him until October to score in the league and even afterwards he had a little drought upon Conte’s arrival. However, since our 2-2 draw with Liverpool, the England Captain has not looked back. He has been in some of the most sensational form of his career and put in what I regard to be his best performance away at Manchester City. He is comfortably our best player and has broken records this season and shone whilst dropping deep. All Tottenham fans will need to cross their fingers that he doesn’t go anywhere.
