Hugo Lloris – He had quite an easy game as he produced his 4th clean sheet in his 7th game this season. He wasn’t tested all game even though Partizan pushed on late.

Kyle Naughton – He was decent and composed at the back as Partizan attacked carelessly.

Ben Davies – His positioning and tackling were really good today and he looks to be a good competition to Rose for the starting left back position.

Federico Fazio – He made his debut for Spurs tonight and it was a half-decent one even though there was no real danger.

Jan Vertonghen – He was the best defender on the pitch tonight as he was composed and cool under pressure at times. He was also decent on the ball.

Benjamin Stambouli – He made his full debut for Spurs tonight and he introduced himself really well tonight as he controlled the midfield and alleviated danger at times.

Paulinho – He was a no show today as he couldn’t get into the game at all. He was knocked off the ball really easily and did not impress Pochettino one bit to get the starting job on the weekend.

Nabil Bentaleb – He was the best of the bad bunch as he was slick and calm on the ball. He gave away the ball easily at times but his passing game was impressive.

Aaron Lennon – He tried to use his pace to attack the Partizan defence but he couldn’t find any space to do so.

Andros Townsend – Probably shared the honours with Paulinho for being the worst player for Spurs today as he gave away the ball too many times far too easily and couldn’t use his pace or trickery at all to create opportunities.

Harry Kane – He was the liveliest of Spurs attackers as he almost scored in the first minute when he hit bar. However, his effectiveness dropped after that as he couldn’t find any space behind Partizan defence.


Roberto Soldado – Came on for Paulinho but like Kane, he couldn’t find any space to operate.

Erik Lamela – Came on for Townsend and he was the most effective sub. He tried to use his pace and tricks to create chances but he also hit the wall that was Partizan’s defence.

Etienne Capoue – Came on for Stambouli late on and like his fellow Frenchman, he was happy to sit back and control the midfield like he always does.
