How did the Spurs team fare in their narrow Europa League victory?
Tottenham Hotspur are through to the knockout stages of this season’s Europa League after a narrow 1-0 victory against Serbian champions Partizan Belgrade at White Hart Lane in a match that was briefly suspended due to three individual pitch invaders causing havoc in the first half.
This is how we rated Mauricio Pochettino’s men during their victory:
GK) Hugo Lloris 8 – Didn’t have a lot to do but, as is the hallmark of a great goalkeeper, still made a couple of wonderful saves on a quiet night.
RB) Kyle Naughton 6 – Solid defensively, but wasted numerous good positions going forwards with a poor final ball.
CB) Vlad Chiriches 7 – Has been out in the wilderness after a dreadful display in this competition against Besiktas, but was much more assured this evening.
