Spurs v Liverpool Player Ratings

Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs side ran out convincing 4-1 winners against Liverpool at Wembley today to cap a brilliant week for the North London side. Let’s see how the players rated …

 

 

Spurs

 

Lloris 7

One world-class save to deny Couthinho and solid throughout.

 

Aurier 6

Struggled in first-half but recovered well after the break. Pochettino has plenty of rough edges to polish off the Ivory Coast international.

 

Alderweireld 7

Solid as a rock and classy distribution.

 

Sánchez 7

Another decent performance by Spurs record-signing.

 

Vertonghen 7

Defended well and was a threat from corners.

 

Trippier 7

Beautifully weighted clip forward for Kane’s opener. Was beaten a bit too easily by Oxlade-Chamberlain on a couple of occasions in second-half however.

 

Eriksen 7

Covered a lot of distance in the centre. Distribution superb as always.

 

Winks 8

Barely put a foot wrong, looks comfortable at this level.

 

Alli 8

Scored the vital third just on the stroke of half-time. A couple of outrageous pieces of showboating in second period.

 

Kane 9 ( MOTM )

A beast. Took his two goals well and led the line brilliantly.

 

Son Heung-min 8

His pace and movement caused Liverpool all manner of problems. Quality finish for Spurs second.

 

Subs

 

Sissoko 6

As usual loads of power and pace, very little finesse.

 

Dier 

N/A No impact.

 

Llorente 

N/A No impact.

 

Liverpool

 

Mignolet 5

Made mistakes for two of Spurs four goals. Sadly, for Reds fans this is nothing new.

 

Gomez 6

Moved into the centre after Lovren’s withdrawal. Didn’t do too badly, but nowhere near his MOTM performance last week against United.

 

Matip 5

Didn’t make any obvious individual errors, but still guilty by association. Time and again Spurs cut through the middle of Liverpool’s defence far too easily.

 

Lovren 3

A disaster. At fault for Spurs opening two goals. Hooked after a half-hour, which tells you all you need to know.

 

Moreno 7

Put in a surprisingly decent shift at left-back to be fair.

 

Milner 6

Worked hard as usual, however did little of note when in possession and his lack of pace was badly exposed by Son for Spurs second.

 

Henderson 6

Covered a lot of ground as he always does, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that Liverpool need more from their captain.

 

Can 6

Was asked to fill in at right-back after Lovren’s substitution. Gave away possession and then the free-kick that led to Spurs decisive third.

 

Coutinho 7

A classy operator, but struggled to impact the game as much as he would have liked.

 

Firmino 6

Put in his usual shift, but unable to create enough in the final third.

 

Salah 8

The King of the inside-to-out-run, which brought about Liverpool’s goal. His continued excellence was one of the few positives for Jurgen Klopp.

 

Subs

 

Oxlade-Chamberlain 6

A couple of decent runs down the left, but it’s hard to disagree with Gary Neville’s statement that Liverpool would have been better off investing the £40 million they paid for The Ox in a top-class centre-half.

 

Grujic

N/A No impact.

 

Sturridge

N/A No impact.
