The Best And The Worst Tottenham Hotspur Players Rated In Their Draw With Real Madrid

Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid played out a draw in a game full of drama and excitement. After taking the lead early on, through an own goal from Raphael Varane, Spurs conceded the equalizer just before the halftime whistle as Cristiano Ronaldo made no mistake converting a penalty.

However, a dogged defensive performance from the visitors resulted in a stalemate between the exciting clash of two giants of European football. Mauricio Pochettino will surely relish the one point, especially after Borussia Dortmund also dropped points against APOEL.

Here are the best and the worst Tottenham Hotspur players rated in their draw with Real Madrid

Hugo Lloris (8.5/10): Didn’t have to do much in the first half but his performance in the second half saved the blushes of Mauricio Pochettino and Spurs team. Lloris made three notable saves, one of which came from a point-blank range, as the Frenchman successfully kept out Real Madrid from scoring the winner.

Serge Aurier (8/10): An impressive display from the Ivorian International only to be spoiled by an awful tackle, which eventually cost his team the equalizer from Real Madrid.

Davinson Sanchez (7.5/10): Helped his teammates stay solid as the Real Madrid attackers plundered forward, relentlessly, throughout the game.

Eric Dier (7/10): Stood in the heart of the Tottenham defense and complemented the dogged defensive work from his teammates.

Toby Alderweireld (8.5/10): A classy defensive display from the Belgian International. Alderweireld was solid throughout the game and also helped his compatriot Jan Vertonghen at times when he looked in trouble. An awesome performance from the former Atletico defender.

Jan Vertonghen (9/10): By far the best defender on the night, Vertonghen prevailed against a dangerous Real Madrid attack, despite playing in an unfavored left back position. He made some astonishing tackles and clearances to keep the opposition at bay.

Moussa Sissoko (7.5/10): Was a surprise inclusion into the starting lineup but the Frenchman didn’t actually disappoint a lot. Sissoko was tireless in his work in midfield, although he seemed to have lacking thrust in helping out teammates offensively.

Harry Winks (8/10): Despite the onslaught from opposing midfielders such as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, the young English International managed to stay calm and composed, acting as the hub of the Spurs midfield.

Christian Eriksen (8/10):  Didn’t look all too influential until the final phase of the game. Eriksen was the catalyst for the Spurs team, who managed to churn out quite a lot of opportunities in the final 15 minutes of the game.

Fernando Llorente (7.5/10): Put in a decent shift as the main Tottenham forward. Llorente was also one of the surprise inclusions in the starting lineup but he vindicated the coach’s decision by putting in a tireless display in attack.

Harry Kane (7.5/10): Looked non-existent for the most part of the game. However, Harry Kane looked extremely dangerous when he was on the ball. Unfortunately, the English superstar spurned two clear-cut chances to put his team into the lead.

Subs

Danny Rose (NA): Replaced Fernando Llorente for the final ten minutes of the game, as head coach Mauricio Pochettino looked to instill a more defensive formation.

Son-Heung Min (NA): Came on for the final few minutes, in a dire attempt to eat out a few more seconds.
