Tottenham player ratings vs Man City: Danny Rose struggles badly but one unlikely hero | Football | Sport


Raheem Sterling nodded the hosts in front before Erik Lamela equalised against the run of play.

Sergio Aguero then put the hosts in front but Lucas Moura headed home from a corner to nick a point for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

City thought they had won it when Gabriel Jesus had the ball in the net in stoppage time, only to see his effort ruled out because of Aymeric Laporte’s handball in the build-up.

Here, Express Sport rates the performance of the Spurs players.

HUGO LLORIS – 6

Could do nothing about the goals and was left exposed by his back line 

KYLE WALKER-PETERS – 5

Probably Spurs’ best defender but containing Raheem Sterling is no easy task and he will have to share some of the blame for his opening goal 

DAVINSON SANCHEZ – 5

Strong in the tackle but nowhere to be seen for any of the goals 

TOBY ALDERWEIRELD – 5

Only ever really saw him when City were bearing down on goal or when he was shanking it out for a throw-in 

DANNY ROSE – 4

The weakest link in the Tottenham defence. Most of City’s attacks started on the right and he simply could not contain Kyle Walker, Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva 

MOUSSA SISSOKO – 6

Was decent on the break but lacked the quality to really hurt City

HARRY WINKS – 5

Did very little before being replaced by Lucas Moura 10 minutes into the second half 

TANGUY NDOMBELE – 6

An encouraging debut last week and he did get the assist for Lamela’s goal. Overall, though, an underwhelming performance 

ERIK LAMELA – 8

An unlikely hero as he scored a clever goal but was given a huge helping hand by Ederson who was woefully out of position when he struck. Also delivered the corner for Lucas Moura’s goal

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN – 3

Had no influence over the game whatsoever and was outshone by his City counterparts on every level

HARRY KANE – 4

Barely touched the ball on a frustrating afternoon for the isolated frontman 

SUBSTITUTES

LUCAS MOURA – 7

Had an immediate impact with his goal and looked determined to make a point 

GIOVANI LO CELSO – N/A

OLIVER SKIPP – N/A
