PLAYER RATINGS: Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Dom Le Roy

Hugo Lloris – He could have done nothing to prevent the last two Liverpool goals but he should have done a lot better with the first one. He managed to pull-off a world-class save from a Sturridge shot.

Kyle Walker – He did not attack as much as he liked with Moreno covering him. He was sound at the back but booked for a bad challenge against Emre Can

Danny Rose – His form ended pretty badly here as he could not handle Ibe all game long. He gave away a cheap penalty for a challenge against Sturridge and did not show the attacking intent he showed in the recent weeks.

Eric Dier – If his pace did not bail him out on many occasions, Spurs would have conceded five. He panicked on the ball and gave the ball away cheaply. He should have done better with Lallana’s cross that ended in the back of the net.

Jan Vertonghen – There was no explanation for his terrible defending in the Liverpool opener and also gave away another one when he smashed his clearance at Mason’s face.

Nabil Bentaleb– He made a lot of mistakes with his passes and his positioning in the middle of the park. However, he showed real energy and intent to make up for his mistakes.

Christian Eriksen – Involved in the first goal with a delightful one-two with Lamela and in the second with a good whipped free kick. It is still obvious that playing on the left wing is affecting his performances drastically.

Ryan Mason – He was full of energy and running in the midfield but made too many errors to his managers liking. It is becoming a problem that his energy is not resulting with an end product.

Mousa Dembele – The Belgian brought control and calmness to the game with his strength and skill. He put himself into a good position to score his team’s second goal.

Erik Lamela – He played one of his better games in the Premier League as he showed his skill when he set up Kane for the goal and played some good passes. He did not get better of Moreno on the wing but played really smart in the middle of the pitch.

Harry Kane – It does not matter if his team is losing or winning, he just keeps on producing world-class performances. He scored a delightful goal and showed real poacher’s instinct to reach the ball in the box after Mignolet saved Eriksen’s free kick and assisted Dembele.


Nacer Chadli – He came on for Eriksen and moved to the left wing. He should have attacked Ibe but he tried to do too much in one occasion rather than to cross the ball.

Roberto Soldado – Made a late appearance and not to anyone’s surprise, did not score an equalizer.

Paulinho – Came on for Mason but did not provide anything to note and he got booked for a challenge late on.

Have something to tell us about this article?


    • Totally agree. Can anyone remember when he even had a half decent game? We should get rid of him to anyone who comes up with a pint of lager and a packet of pork scratchings, or is that asking too much?

  1. I too have no idea why Paulinho keeps getting game time either. He can't tackle. dribble, shoot or make a forward pass. Time stands still when the ball is at his feet. He's a complete waste of space. Oh how I wish the rumours of other clubs wanting him were true.

  2. ıt was the match of Adebayor.But Poccettino didn't take him.So He lost the game.Ade is a goal man.Poccettino always remember this.
