How the Players Rated: Wigan v Spurs


Lloris – 7/10

No help on both of the goals but made a great save from Kone.

Walker – 6/10

Struggled defending against Maloney and was ok going forward

Dawson – 7/10

Cleaned up well but was rash when he dived in on Kone for Hugo to save

Vertonghen – 6/10

Fingers were pointed at his marking for the equaliser

Naughton – 6/10

Had to do better with Wigan’s second goal especially when he let McManaman cut inside.

Parker – 5/10

Went missing after Dembele’s injury and struggled to find a place in the game with THud and Holtby on the ball, maybe should of shot first time after Defoe’s first half run.

Huddlestone – 8/10

Sat very deep looking for the ball inline with the centre-backs, looked comfortable on the ball one of his better games.

Dembele – n/a

Not much to report on.

Bale – 7/10

Got lucky on the goal, credit to him for chasing down and was trying to get involved but was quiet throughout the game.

Dempsey 7/10

Only got started in the second half and clipped in a good cross at the end of the game.

Defoe – 7/10

One of the better players on the day, but struggled to get any space when on the ball.


Holtby- ran his little legs off but lacked creativity
Lennon – introduced late into the game and never got going
Ekotto – didn’t have to do any defending and put in a good couple of crosses

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Well I’m afraid that’s the champions league place gone, that’s just typically, we win against man city and then fail to win against wigan! Daniel levy must move heaven and earth to keep gareth bale and bring in players that are game-changers otherwise we will back to square one!

  2. Wigan fan at the game yesterday, thought your man Huddlestone had an excellent game & was unlucky not to have gained the right to have a haircut!! Think you still good enough for top 4

  3. Those ratings are terrible imo bale did sweet fa, 6 defoe was ineffective 5. walker was poorer than a 6, naughton was a 5, dawson caught out countless times and left big gaps 5, dempsey was anonymous 5 those ratings suggest we earned that point we did nothing of the sort we were lucky both goals were gifts and we created very little play like that for the rest of the season and we'll finish 6th
