PLAYER RATINGS: Burnley 0-0 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Dom Le Roy

Michel Vorm – He had quite an easy game as he was not tested for most parts of the game. He was commanding in his area and had two decent saves from Ings’ two shots.

Kyle Walker – He had an average game as he was decent on the defensive end but produced close to nothing on the attacking side of things. He had to be replaced right after the start of second half.

Eric Dier – He had the most touches by any Spurs player and he was in control for most of the match. He did not make any big mistakes in the game.

Vlad Chiriches – He started the game for Vertonghen and did not have much trouble keeping Burnley out. He scared the fans with his unusual decision making. He had to move to right back after Walker was subbed off and he performed decent enough.

Danny Rose – He made his usual runs when necessary but the end product was never there. His crosses were terrible and he was lucky to escape the yellow card after he dived in the opposition box. Burnley’s pressure game really bothered him all game long.

Nabil Bentaleb – He had one of his worst displays of the season. He was never good on the ball and Burnley players stretched him out of position all game long.

Ryan Mason – It looks like he doesn’t learn from his mistakes as another one of his poor passes led to a chance in his own box. He was decent when defending but he had no influence on the attacking side of things.

Paulinho – Pochettino baffled everyone by picking him ahead of Townsend and this game will not improve the Brazilian’s chances of staying in the line-up. He was anonymous all game long and his second half blunder summed up his career at Tottenham.

Christian Eriksen – He was never able to show his quality on the ball and he often came too deep to even have a touch on the ball. He had a half decent chance to put his team up front but his shot went over the bar.

Nacer Chadli – Every time he touched the ball, he chose the selfish option and broke up promising attacks. Apart from his shot that forced a save from Heaton, he had no influence on the game whatsoever.

Harry Kane – He couldn’t save his team’s atrocious display as he was also quiet. He never received the service he needed and his hard work did not make much difference.


Ben Davies – Came on for Walker and played as a centre-back. He had a good game considering he played at an uncomfortable position for him.

Erik Lamela – He came on for Chadli and created the chance for Eriksen but that was all he did in the time he was on the pitch.

Andros Townsend – He came on late but never affected the game.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. lol at Mason….you could have been talking about Lennon with that for the rest…well you dont really condemn anybody for such a cr4p display, but truth is they dont look fluid yet. Too scared to lose, too timid to grab the dog by the bollox and get stuck in. So all in all, 6 points behind filth for Chumpions League next year….Im not happy and not farkin bothered now! We had our chances, and should have taken them, like dropping 2 points today knowing it would have put us in 5th place shows this bunch are either clueless or just dont give a sh!t to put the effort in when its needed!!! Dont know what to say….its garbage.

  2. Some shocking performances today, we were back to a team lacking any cohesion or leadership. I se this as MP's fault, it's his job to get the team working together, simply put, there wasn't a team out there today apart from Burnley. Kane was pathetic, always looking to take on two or three players, Paulinho should be sold ASAP, as should Chadli. We need genuine tempo from the central pairing and we do not have that it in be tales and mason, no matter what the papers say. We have so far bought , erik wen, soldado, Chadli, Davies, stambouli., vorm.chirches. Dier.Fazio. lamela. Only eriksen will make the grade, this has been the biggest issue at the club, we should have bought two or three players post bale. And one or two this year. Two many new faces. I'm genuinely bored watching spurs at the moment. Today: walker 3, dier, 4, chirches 5, rose 5, mason 4, bentaleb 5, Chadli 4, Paulinho 4, eriksen 6, Kane 3. MP 3.

  3. Betaleb Mason and Chadli need a rest they are not strong eneogh. Walker is getting so cocky he loses the ball on his own. Paulinio one way ticket to Brazil

  4. The penny's dropped either mason/bentalab as defensive midfeilders I would prefer mason with eriksen/Carroll as centre mid, dembele looks like he could be the new no 10 interchanging with eriksen Davies could end up being a good centre half instead the worrying thing is these players r look like they've never played together all season,baldinis signings can all go,

  5. Poch is causing all our problems
    Same formation week in week out
    He said we lacked creativity
    We'll organise your team accordingly poch
    We need to get back to basics 4-4-2 for starters
    No more inverted wingers
    If you are left footed play on the left
    Right footed play on the right
    Very arrogant and clueless manager

  6. Total shite I think chadli and paulinho are the worst players I’ve ever seen in a spurs shirt. must say I thought Davis Did well chirches was ok too at least gutless vertongen wasn’t there today pulling out of challenges . Eriksson and Kane have papered over the cracks this year there are some serious decisions to be made in the summer . We could have been bottom half if not for them two.

  7. Who really cares in the Spurs team. Just look who came across and applauded us suffering fan at the end. Paulinho gave possibly the worst display I have seen from him and his miss was a contender for miss of the season.

  8. Total shambolic display today gutless and clueless wimps are being selected to play for Spurs…What is going on Pochettino? You are the head coach and responsible for this rubbish performance against Burnley today and similarly against Leicester the previous week. How long are we expected to watch this crap?
