Player Ratings vs Leeds United

Jermaine Jenas - Header

Gomes (7) – Decent save from Snodgrass in the first half. Neither goal his fault.

Hutton (6) – Got in some good positions going forward especially in the first half but didn’t make the most of them. Doesn’t inspire confidence at the back. Received our only booking.

Bale (8) – Our outstanding player on the day. Excellent going forward throughout and supplied the only quality wide play on either side.

Dawson (5) – Struggled to cope with Beckford. Lots of hoofing forward even after Crouch had gone off. Poor challenge for penalty.

Bassong (6) – Indecisive when Beckford was around and poor challenge for the first goal.

Kranjcar (6) – Played on the right side of midfield but didn’t supply any width and only occasionally used his quick feet to good effect.

Jenas (5) – He and Modric were outnumbered and never really coped. Improved when Palacios came on.

Modric (6) – Flitted in and out of the game. Struggled to find space.

Rose (5) – Rarely got involved and looked out of his depth.

Defoe (6) – Has perhaps taken his last Spurs penalty. Good lob early on and unlucky when felled by Crowe in the box when through on goal.

Crouch (7) – Took goal neatly and fed Defoe well occasionally. Needs to try and avoid running with the ball at his feet, he gets it taken off him with embarrassing ease sometimes.
