Tottenham Player Ratings vs Leeds United


David Bentley - Header

Gomes (8) – Fine handling in difficult conditions. Terrific save from Michalik header just after the first goal.

Corluka (7) – Solid defensively, a bit subdued going forward.

Bale (7) – Found Snodgrass a handful in the first half but turned it around in the second by bombing forward and causing Leeds non-stop problems.

Bassong (7) – Handled Beckford much better than in the first game, hopefully a sign that he’s learning as he goes along.

Dawson (7) – Led by example, as ever when he’s skipper. A number of cracking block tackles in the first half.

Bentley (9) – A revelation. Skilful and determined. So much better when he restricts the fancy stuff. Lovely run and left foot shot in the second half as well as making two goals.

Huddlestone (7) – Watched the game go by a bit as he normally does when the tempo is that high. Much better in the second half than first.

Jenas (6) – Very familiar display. Looks to have all the tools but you end up afterwards wondering whether you should’ve got someone else to do the job.

Kranjcar (7) – Played a full part in pushing Leeds back in the second half. A number of strong skilful runs.

Defoe (9) – How can you give a nine to a man who missed so many chances? Well he won us the game is how.

Crouch (7) – That Michalik’s a big bloke. The usual non-stop battling from Crouchy with little assistance from the referee. Hit the bar at 2-1.


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. It’s great to see Bentley performing like he did last night. I’ve always wanted him to do well, especially since he’s also a Spurs fan. Its starting to soften the blow of Lennon being out a bit. Lets hope he keeps it up. COYS

  2. Glad to see Bentley and Bale picking up the pace and that we’ll be giving BAE and Lennon some competition. Thats what helps players improve and fight for their place. Good win!!!! COYS

  3. What the hell has Hudds got to do you must have bean biting your nails and not watching he was superb and the commentator of many champions league nights commented on his ball retention and taking care of it all night .He won the ball back so many times have another look in the cold light and you will up his mark he kept is simple in the conditions but always started a move i cant belive you said he goes missing he can play against any energized team legal or not legal with is football Brain and quick feeT. I could play a bit myself and is first time passing is up there with the best if not the best i would take him to Africa and Cappellow is a fan .He is class and you are looking in the wrong window with the to slow for fast games he can spot a pass quicker than usain bolt he is fast . having whats called a football brain is what makes you special you can get speed from the new steroid look how fast UTD have gone since there dept was mentioned Lennons is fast have another look and have a pen and paper to see if the game passes him by you may be surprised otherwise good marks and a great blog always except this one comment.
