Player Ratings – West Ham 1-0 Spurs: Disappointing scores all round for Pochettino’s men

Posted by

Spurs were beaten 1-0 by West Ham in a London derby today, and it was arguably the worst they have played all season.

Here’s a look at how Spurs stars performed on an individual basis:

GK: Hugo Lloris 5.5/10

Should have done much, much better with the opening goal and looked a bit low on confidence thereafter. Distribution was poor throughout.

RB: Kieran Trippier 5/10

Payet ran rings around him all night and his passing was largely poor.

CB: Toby Alderweireld 6/10

Couldn’t get to grips with West Ham’s big man Emenike. Possibly lucky not to see red after countless fouls.

CB: Kevin Wimmer 5/10

Should have been sent off, and only some poor officiating from Andre Marriner saved him.

LB: Ben Davies 5.5/10

Lanzini had him struggling throughout. Consistently looked too exposed when West Ham put him under pressure.

CM: Erik Dier 6.5/10

One of Spurs’ better players. Wasn’t competitive enough in the first half, but improved immeasurably in the second 45.

CM: Ryan Mason 6.5/10

Like Dier, he was much better after the break. Seriously lacked any kind of final product, however.

AMR: Nacer Chadli 5/10

Beaten in the air for West Ham’s opener, and struggled to find any real rhythm in the final third.

AMC: Christian Eriksen 5/10

Anonymous performance from Spurs’ creator-in-chief. Needs to improve if Spurs are to challenge for the title.

AML: Erik Lamela 5.5/10

One of the only Spurs players to start well, but faded badly as time wore on.

ST: Harry Kane 6/10

Badly missed Spurs best chance of the game, but won a few important aerial duels.

Dele Ali – 61 mins: 5/10

Ali never got in the game after replacing Chadli. Looks like a player who needs a couple of weeks of rest.

Heung-Min Son – 70 mins: 5.5/10

Came on for Lamela. Caused some confusion in the West Ham box once or twice, but never really threatened.

Tom Carroll – 77 mins: 5/10

Barely touched the ball.
