A frustrating evening for Tottenham, who were held 1-1 by West Ham at Wembley. A missed opportunity for Mauricio Pochettino’s side to close the gap on fourth-placed Liverpool.

Hugo Lloris – 6- Beaten at his near post by a rocket from Obiang.

Serge Aurier – 6 – Energetic, but his crosses in the final third were way off the mark.  His best moment came when he played in Kane during the first half.

Jan Vertonghen – 7 – Another solid performance from the Belgian.  Tottenham’s Mr. Consistent.

Davinson Sanchez – 6 – Much more comfortable this evening compared to the Swansea match.

Ben Davies – 5 – The Ben Davies of August has disappeared.  Too many sideways and backwards passes, his end product was disappointing.

Eric Dier – 5 – Started the game well with some decent challenges but looked tired.  Was replaced by Wanyama after West Ham took the lead.

Moussa Sissoko – 3 – For how much longer will Pochettino keep playing the £30m flop?  He should have been hauled off after 45 minutes.

Christian Eriksen – 7 – The Dane was Tottenham’s best attacking outlet in the first half, always looking to try and make things happen. Went close on a couple of occasions, but his free kicks still need work.

Dele Alli – 6 – One of his quieter nights, should have had a penalty when manhandled by Adrian in the second half.

Heung-min Son – 8 – Rescued Tottenham’s blushes with a stunning strike from outside of the box.  Industrious and tried to unlock the West Ham defence, his ‘shhh’ celebration to the West Ham fans was one of the few highlights of the evening.

Harry Kane – 6 – Had a couple of half chances, but didn’t look up to his usual energetic self.

Subs

Victor Wanyama – 5 – Evident that he is returning from a long spell out

Erik Lamela – 5 – Played mostly out on the right flank and tried to cut in, did more than Sissoko managed.

Fernando Llorente – 5 – Had little time to make an impact.

  1. In recent games Spurs have been guilty of being tardy at the start of games. Always playing catch up. Seems like if the opposition don’t score then Spurs can’t get into gear. Something poch need to fix real quickly or next season we won’t be playing in Europe.

  2. I think Erikson is overrated. His end products were also disappointing. Lack of vitality and creativity. Too many inaccurate or ineffective pass.
