Tottenham’s six summer signings have had half a season to settle into life in North London. Let’s have a look at each player’s best and worst moments in lilywhite, and rate their Tottenham careers so far.
Brazil’s number 9 moved from Everton on a five-year deal worth £60m.
Best moment: The Brazilian came alive and produced a brace of headers within 5 minutes to secure Tottenham a 2-0 win over Marseille in the Champions League.
Worst moment: On the back of an impressive World Cup, Richarlison should have become one of Tottenham’s key players. However, a hamstring injury hampered his development and stopped him from securing a regular position in the starting 11.
Ivan Perisic 7/10
The 33-year-old World cup finalist signed on a free from Inter Milan.
Best moment: Perisic’s crossing and passing has been superb all season, and he has 5 assists to his name. His brilliant corner set up Harry Kane’s 96-minute equaliser against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Worst moment: The Croatian had a half to forget during Tottenham’s meltdown at the Etihad. Perisic was dominated by Riyad Mahrez, who was involved in all four of City’s goals. The wing-back also missed a brilliant opportunity to put Spurs back in front with the score at 2-2.
Yves Bissouma 5/10
The Mali international moved from Brighton to North London for £25m in the summer.
Best moment: Bissouma played a vital role in a 3-5-2 system that crushed Leicester in the final 20 minutes, for a final score of 6-2.
Worst moment: The midfielder failed to track the run of Douglas Luiz, who scored Aston Villa’s second goal on a dismal New Year’s Day for Tottenham.
Clement Lenglet 5/10
The French international signed on a season-long loan from Barcelona.
Best moment: his header levelled our crucial final group stage match against Marseille.
Worst moment: the Frenchman won’t want to watch his mistake that led to Man City’s fourth at the Etihad.
Fraser Forster 5/10
Forster signed on a free from Southampton and has kept 2 clean sheets in 4 appearances across all competitions. He will now be needed following the injury to Lloris, so hopefully this score can skyrocket over the next month.
His most memorable moment in a Spurs shirt came against Portsmouth, where he was heckled by the 9,000 away fans for his ties to Pompey’s arch-rivals Southampton.
Fortunately, he made some solid saves in our 1-0 win over the League One side.
Djed Spence N/A
Spence signed from Middlesbrough in the summer, after a successful year on loan at Nottingham Forest.
The 22-year-old has joined Rennes on loan until the end of the season, and impressed on his debut for the French side.
