How the Spurs players rated in their Europa League victory over Asteras Tripolis.
Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of qualification for the knock-out stages of the Europa League this evening after a relatively comfortable win over Greek minnows Asteras Tripolis, although they had some wayward finishing to thank from the hosts on their way to a 2-1 victory.
This is how we rated Mauricio Pochettino’s side in their victory:
GK) Michael Vorm – 6 – Deputising for the suspended Hugo Lloris, Vorm was largely untroubled but a little dodgy from crosses once or twice.
RB) Eric Dier – 5 – Offered very little going forward and was the man regularly exposed by Asteras at the start of the second half.
CB) Federico Fazio – 4 – The Argentine was largely solid but can be troubled by a ball in behind due to his lack of mobility, as was horribly shown when he was sent off late on.
