PLAYER RATINGS: West Brom 3-3 Tottenham

2

Hugo Lloris – Made a smart first half save from Amalfitano’s drive but could have offered more in the one-on-one v Sessegnon.

Kyle Naughton – The best of a bad bunch of defenders, as most of the attacks came down the left. Produced some good crosses and again demonstrated that the loss of Walker is not too serious for the side.

Vlad Chiriches – A terrible, terrible display. Completely outfoxed by the long balls forward and could not handle West Brom’s fluid front line.

Younes Kaboul –  An equally poor first half but a better second half, where he livened up and actually started to win headers and put himself about.

Danny Rose – Atrocious display. Has forgotten how to cross (if he ever knew) and has forgotten how to defend. Left the left-back spot vacant on too many occasions and completely done by Amalfitano in the build-up to the 25-second goal.

Aaron Lennon – An impressive performance from Lennon. Got down to the byline on a number of occasions and picked up an assist for both Kane’s goal (with a very good cross) and Olsson’s own goal. A much improved week for Lennon.

Paulinho – Dropped deep to collect the ball on a number of occasions and attempted to be the metronome of the side; did this job with reasonable success. Completed a lot of passes and set attacks going down both wings.

Nacer Chadli – The Belgian has been much improved recently but today was a step back as he was virtually anonymous throughout.

Christian Eriksen – A quieter game by Eriksen’s standards, with his set pieces regularly going awry, but his finish was sublime and secured us a point.

Emmanuel Adebayor – A quiet afternoon for Adebayor, which won’t help his chances in the Player of the Year competition. Missed his penalty horrifically and did little else, other than put himself about slightly amongst the West Brom defence.

Harry Kane – Not as influential as on Monday but he nabbed another goal and did plenty of running.

Substitutes

Zeki Fryers – Came on for Chiriches at half time and was anonymous, which I’m going to take as a good thing.

Gylfi Sigurdsson – Dropped deep in an attempt to make stuff happen, and did get the ball forward swiftly and successfully. Upped the tempo of the game when necessary.

Andros Townsend – 5Got down the left touchline well on a couple of occasions but the final ball was lacking. Should have been brought on with more than 7 minutes of normal time left.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. 3 for Rose and Chrirches is far to generous. I was thinking somewhere in the minus. 6 for Naughton is also generous as he was pretty bad too. I cringed as soon as I saw Ade stepping up for the penalty. Should have let Eriksen take it. Kane shows lots of enthusiasm and at least when he gets the ball is looking to drive forward, not play the ball backwards all the time
