Huddersfield vs Spurs – Player Ratings

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusSHARE

 

A Harry Kane double helped Tottenham towards a comfortable 4-0 victory over Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon. But how did the rest of the players get on?

 

 

Huddersfield

 

Lossl 5.5

Hard to give over 5.5 when he’s had to pick the ball out his net four times but he wasn’t totally to blame. Often left exposed, one horror moment in the first-half when he miscued a clearance into Kane’s path.

 

Smith 6

The Huddersfield captain gave his all as you would expect but ultimately couldn’t deal with Spurs’ movement and pace. Saw a decent effort well saved by Lloris in the first half.

 

Jorgenson 5

A tough day at the office for the big Danish centre back. Got a nick on an early Kane effort to deny the England striker but it was all downhill from there.

 

Schindler 6

Messed up for Kane’s opener but recovered as well as a player can when still being on the end of a 4-0 beating.

 

 

Lowe 5.5

Was unfortunate to see his challenge on Eriksen give the ball to Davies for Spurs’ second but even without that he struggled as the away side ran riot.

 

Mooy 6 

Failed to get on the ball for any extended time, was quite overwhelmed at times but put in a few decent crosses.

 

Hogg 5

Completely overrun, offered no protection to his back four, failed to get a hold of the ball or stop Spurs in any way.

 

Kachunga 6 

Worked really hard and did his best for the Huddersfield cause. Couldn’t get forward too much with Spurs streaming forward but almost got on the end of a Malone cross towards the end.

 

Ince 6 

Did his best going forward but like Kachunga found himself going backwards more than he would have liked.

 

Van La Parra 6

The Dutch attacker didn’t have much to work with, had a shot blocked and tried to help out where he could.

 

Depoitre 6.5

Hit the bar with a spectacular effort just before the break but generally was feeding off scraps.

 

Subs

 

Malone – 6

Did well when he came on and tried his best to take the game to Spurs down the left.

 

Billing – 6

Again, worked hard but was outclassed.

 

Whitehead – N/A

 

Tottenham Hotspurs

 

 

Lloris 7 

Had to keep his wits about him to maintain his clean sheet but it was a relatively quiet after noon for the French stopper.

 

Trippier 8

A great afternoon for the young full-back. Provided the assists for both of Kane’s goals and did the defensive work as well. Took a bit of a whack from Ince but battled on until the result was assured.

 

Alderweireld 7.5

The usual solid display from one of the league’s best centre-backs. Never got out of second gear.

 

Sanchez 7

Solid throughout, there were shouts for a penalty after a physical challenge on Kachunga but in general the new signing seems to be settling in nicely.

 

Vertonghen 7 

An easy return to the starting eleven for the Belgian. No problems at the back, helped out going forward.

 

Davies 8

Worked hard throughout the game. Always looked dangerous. Was alert for his goal and finished smartly.

 

Dier 7.5

Didn’t have to do anything flashy or clever but kept Spurs moving and stopped Huddersfield from getting forward.

 

Winks 8 

Never stopped running, destroyed any chance Huddersfield might have had of getting a foothold in the midfield, ensured Spurs were always on the front foot.

 

Eriksen 7 

Some nice touches and decent passes but didn’t do a huge amount, he didn’t really need to on an afternoon when Spurs were so dominant.

 

Alli 6 

Some nice touches, hit the post but still hasn’t hit the heights of last season and was rightly booked for a pretty dreadful dive.

 

Kane 9 (Man Of The Match)

Brilliant. The man is on fire at the moment. His first showcased his coolness in front of goal, his second his class as he bent one in from 25 yards. He might not be able to score in August but that makes it 13 in September for club and country.

 

Subs

 

Sissoko 7

Looked dangerous when he came on and added his name to the scoresheet.

 

Walker Peters – N/A

 

Son – N/A
