Player Ratings: Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 PSV Eindhoven

Image: SpursWeb

Tottenham Hotspur yet again did it the hard way tonight, seeing off PSV by two goals to one in the Champions League.

Spurs gave away a goal in the first couple of minutes, before hitting PSV with a barrage of attack for the rest of the game.

For a moment, it didn’t look as if the Lilywhites were going to be able to do it, but two late goals from Harry Kane kept Tottenham’s Champions League hopes alive.

Here are the player ratings from a dramatic night at Wembley.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 7

Made a couple of good stops, generally looked commanding, and even through in a Cruyff turn to beat a PSV forward.

Serge Aurier – 5

His pace and trickery gets him into some good positions, but his final product was woeful today. It seemed his crosses either found the first man or the far touchline, nothing inbetween.

Davinson Sanchez – 8

Another powerful and dominant performance from the young man today. Rarely seems to put a foot wrong, and when he does, he often recovers.

Toby Alderweireld – 8

Similar to Sanchez, Alderweireld looked comfortable today. He even sprayed a couple of nice balls, including one that put Alli through on goal.

Ben Davies – 7

Defensively pretty solid, and ultimately it was his cross that set up Kane for the winner.

Harry Winks – 9

Did the job of two or three players in the centre of that midfield today. Got stuck into challenges, distributed the ball well and generally bossed the centre of the park.

Christian Eriksen – 7

Kept things ticking over nicely today. Couldn’t quite find the final pass, but he’s improving with every game.

Dele All i- 6

Poor marking for the PSV goal and missed a whole heap of chances. However, he has just come back from injury and at least he’s getting into the positions.

Heung Min Son – 6

Not at his best today, but wasn’t bad by a long shot. Once PSV camped in their own half, the space wasn’t really there for the Korean.

Lucas Moura – 7

Quiet through large parts but then he suddenly bursts into life. It seemed as if he would be at the heart of any breakthrough but was substituted early.

Harry Kane – 9

Wasn’t really in the game at all until late on, but when his side needed him, the Captain stepped up once again. Two goals, and he kept Spurs’ Champions League hopes alive.


Erik Lamela – 6

Kept the ball moving nicely and showed some nice skill out on the right hand side, always a good sub to have.

Fernando Llorente – 6

Set up Kane’s first goal with a nice layoff, but missed his own big chance to win the game late on.

Kieran Trippier – 5

Didn’t do a whole lot after coming on. If anything, he looked defensively wobbly yet again.
