PLAYER RATINGS: Tottenham Hotspur 0 -1 Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Dom Le Roy

Hugo Lloris – He could have done nothing to prevent Rosicky’s goal. He didn’t have much to do all game but had a decent save to deny Mertesacker.

Kyle Naughton – He was caught out of position many times to allow Arsenal players run behind him. He had decent crosses and supported the attack.

Younes Kaboul – Some solid defending and good headers but he could have easily caught by a few Arsenal counter attacks.

Jan Vertonghen – He was casual and complacent at times and could have been the subject of some more criticism if Oxlade-Chamberlain scored. He was solid in the last 20 minutes.

Danny Rose – He was too far up front for Rosicky’s goal and his defence was shaky all game. He was pacey and supported attacks.

Sandro – He was the holding midfielder in the game and did his job quite well but his poor pass that led to the goal was really disappointing.

Nabil Bentaleb – He offered almost nothing in both ends and almost got caught out in the first half that led to Sherwood going mad.

Andros Townsend – He didn’t do a lot in the first half but his direct dribbling and pace caused Arsenal problems.

Nacer Chadli – His touch, dribbling and pace was really effective in the midfield but not so much in the attacking third. He had the best chance of the game but denied by Koscielny to draw Tottenham level.

Christian Eriksen – He started on the left once again and at times he was too isolated and lost. His best moments came when he was in the midfield.

Emmanuel Adebayor – Worked hard but had no support. He also tried to do too much by himself that denied the team some good chances.


Paulinho – He had no real impact on the game after coming on as a sub in the 68th minute for Sandro.

Gylfi Sigurdsson – Came on for Chadli in the 68th minute. His movement was decent and had the ball in good areas but did not convert any of them.

Roberto Soldado – Came on for Eriksen in the 82nd minute. He did not get many touches and had no impact.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. How many more times is Bentaleb going to be picked before Sherwood admits he is not ready for the big games, he has not had a good game for over a month, yet he still starts, and it is also a good job the manager doesn’t get a rating, otherwise the average would shoot right down. He didn’t have a clue when he started, hasn’t got a clue now, and is just picking a team to save his job, not to win matches, it’s time for him to go and take ‘yes man’ Les with him.

  2. What's the point of writing a comment on here, the one's which have been submitted before, which criticised the management are not published, so unless you are prepared to print only sweet sugary comments about how lovely everything is at the Lane, it's a waste of time
