CM: Ryan Mason 6.5/10
Was tidy in possession and tenacious without the ball. Replaced by Benjamin Stambouli on 69 minutes, after picking up a yellow for chopping down Leon Britton.
CM: Nabil Bentaleb – 7/10
Kept his composure throughout what was a very fiery game played in miserably wet conditions. Ulta confident, with the talent and strength to back it up.
AM: Erik Lamela – 4.5/10
Could have been sent off and cost his team dearly had the referee deemed that either of his first-half forearm smashes were deliberate. As it turned out, he stayed on the pitch until the 83rd minute, when Pochettino hooked him and brought on Nacer Chadli.
