Opinion: Ratings every single Spurs player for their season performance so far

Tottenham Hotspur have endured a rather stop-start season this year, hampered by a change of manager and a vast array of injuries to key players.

The Lilywhites find themselves out of the Carabao Cup, behind in their Champions League round of 16 match, scraping their way through the FA Cup, and out of the top four in the Premier League.

We wanted to take a look through the Spurs squad, rating each of them for their season performance so far:

Hugo Lloris – 7 – Mistakes in him, but the Frenchman started the season well and seems to be back in good form again now. It’s just a pity about that long-term injury.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 7.5 – Deserves great credit for coming in and performing consistently in Lloris’ absence. Apart from that one Chelsea mistake, he played admirably.

Kyle Walker-Peters – 3 – Failed to impress during his chance at the start of the season and was eventually loaned out.

Serge Aurier – 7 – A real mixed bag this season, depending on the formation. However, I would say he has done more good than bad overall.

Danny Rose – 3 – Shocking all season and was eventually loaned out.

Ryan Sessegnon – 5 – I have been slightly underwhelmed by the new boy so far, but he is a signing for the long-term.

Ben Davies – 5 – Hasn’t played too much yet, but looks a steady option at left-back.

Japhet Tanganga – 9 – Hasn’t put a foot wrong since coming in. A real breath of fresh air and can play across so many positions.

Davinson Sanchez – 8 – Looks to be coming on leaps and bounds now that he is getting regular football.

Toby Alderweireld – 6 – Really hit and miss. Looks to be good for a few more years but perhaps not as a starter.

Jan Vertonghen – 2 – A sad finale to his Spurs career as he looks way off the pace.

Juan Foyth – 3 – His Spurs career looks to be on a knife-edge after failing to impress Mourinho.

Eric Dier – 4 – A favourite of Mourinho’s to begin with, before quickly fading into the squad once again. Perhaps it is time for Dier to leave.

Victor Wanyama – 1 – Not in the Spurs plans anymore. Time for him to go.

Harry Winks – 7 – Looks to be progressing well under Mourinho, but seems best in a deep sweeper role.

Tanguy Ndombele – 4 – A big disappointment so far in terms of both fitness and consistent performances.

Moussa Sissoko – 8 – He was starting to add new parts to his game under Mourinho before his injury. A huge miss for Spurs.

Oliver Skipp – 2 – Has barely appeared in a Spurs shirt this season, which is a real shame.

Gedson Fernandes – 6.5 – What I have seen so far looks really promising.

Giovani Lo Celso – 9 – The best Tottenham signing this season by a country mile, looks good enough to fill Eriksen’s boots.

Dele Alli – 5 – Looked to be back to his best at the start of the Mourinho era but has lost form once again. Perhaps he is best when playing off Kane.

Erik Lamela – 7.5 – One of Tottenham’s best attackers when he is on the pitch, if only he could play more minutes.

Steven Bergwijn – 7 – Made a positive start to his Spurs career but is now limited by the injuries around him and the striker role he is being pushed into.

Lucas Moura – 6.5 – I wish he would grab a few more goals, but another victim of the role he is being asked to play in the midst of an injury crisis. Always gives his all.

Heung Min Son – 8 – In terms of performances, he has been pretty average, but I can’t argue with the South Korean’s scoring record. A big miss.

Harry Kane – 7 – Never really got the chance to get going this season, but hopefully he can finish strong.

Troy Parrott – 4 – Looked to be progressing but is finding it tough to prove to Mourinho that he is ready.
