Tottenham Hotspur made a statement, albeit against lesser opposition, this evening, hitting five past Mura to record their first Europa Conference League win of the season.
Let’s take a look at how the individual players got on:
Pierluigi Gollini – 6.5 – Not a whole lot to type here to be honest. He was a bit of a spectator but claimed the ball a few times. No chance with Mura’s superb goal.
Matt Doherty – 6 – With Lo Celso cutting inside, there was so much space to overlap tonight. He did it well a few times but I thought there was opportunity for so much more. He was also sloppy on the ball at the start of the second half and he missed a free header.
Cristian Romero – 8 – Just looks solid. Makes his challenges quickly and efficiently, then recycles the ball positively at a similar pace. Time to put him in the Premier League XI.
Joe Rodon – 7.5 – Nice to see him get some more minutes. He was utterly dominant in the air and hard-working on the deck in covering the space in behind.
Sergio Reguilon – 7.5 – Made himself available for the entire match. If anything, the touchline play of Gil prevented much of a Reguilon overlap, but the left-back played well. Unlucky not to get a goal in the second half.
Oliver Skipp – 8 – Another tireless and consistent performance from Skippy. He even got forward a few times and came close to a goal. Such great all-around passing play.
Harry Winks – 6 – A much-needed solid performance from a struggling Winks. You get the sense he needs to hit the reset button and get back to basics. Nothing incredible this evening but also no mistakes.
Dele Alli – 6.5 – Drifted in and out of the game in a more advanced role. Gave it away a lot, but perhaps because he was trying to make stuff happen. Good penalty, won and converted. Needs to be more consistent and came off early again.
Bryan Gil – 8 – He looks a real talent. Gil only has one year and that is running full throttle at the defender. Put in some great crosses too. Still raw and inconsistent but exciting.
Giovani Lo Celso – 9 – Much better this evening and took his goal expertly. One thing that worked against him was the RW role. He needs to play centrally. Funnily enough, in the second half he moved central to make space for Moura and looked different class.
Dane Scarlett – 6.5 – He didn’t get an abundance of chances but worked hard. Nice nutmeg to get in behind at one point. Some flashes of promise here and there. Progress made. A bit let down by the lack of service, to be honest.
Heung-min Son – 7 – Spurs needed the big guns in the second half and Son certainly didn’t disappoint. A constant threat and an assist for Kane.
Harry Kane – 10 – Came off the bench to score a hat-trick. That has to be a ten.
Lucas Moura – 7 – Much like Son, Moura injected pace, claimed an assist and made the difference off the bench.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 6 – Came on to solidify the midfield. A bit sloppy but did a job.
Emerson Royal – N/A
