Tottenham Hotspur are through to the next round of the FA Cup where they will play Norwich City at home.

The Lilywhites came from 2-1 down after a woeful performance to score two in a last ten-minute flurry. Not sure how they did it, but Spurs are in the fifth round.

Let’s take a look at how the players got on:

Hugo Lloris – 3 – He did claim the ball nicely a few times but Lloris looked a real mess tonight. Parrying it out when he should be catching the ball and staying on his line when he should have come out.

Serge Aurier – 6 – Aurier did okay tonight. Perhaps not as many crosses in the box as you would like, but he always offered something on the right.

Japhet Tanganga – 6.5 – Tottenham’s best defender and he would have scored far higher if not for the mistake in Ings’ goal, letting the striker cut in.

Toby Alderweireld – 6 – Some nice moments in the air and cutting passes out, but not sure what he was doing in the build-up to Shane Long’s goal.

Jan Vertonghen – 4 – Does not look up to the pace of the game anymore. Sad, but true.

Ryan Sessegnon – 5 – Didn’toffer anything going forward and looks shaky at times in defence. Still young and learning.

Eric Dier – 5.5 – By no means his worst performance, but Dier just doesn’t seem to influence the game enough either defensively or offensively. Squad player at best.

Harry Winks – 6.5 – Looked knackered from the Man City game after that huge shift but still showed the odd nice breakaway.

Tanguy Ndombele – 5 – Started so well before looking as though he lost his pace, fitness, and interest. Needs to knuckle down, get fit, and show more hunger.

Lucas Moura – 7 – Tottenham’s best player going forward. Selfish at times, but showed a real spark in the Saints half.

Heung Min Son – 6.5 – The penalty gets him an extra mark. Selfish like Moura but without the same impact going forward.

Substitutes:

Gedson Fernandes – 6 – Came on and showed some nice interplay. Needs game time.

Dele Alli – 7.0 – Played the nice ball that earned Tottenham the penalty. Enough to bump him up a mark or two.

Davinson Sanchez – N/A
