Tottenham continued their underwhelming record in the recent past against West Brom with a 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns. Spurs attacked incessantly in the first half but to no avail as Ben Foster had an excellent game between the sticks. West Brom took the lead through former Tottenham man Nacer Chadli only for the away side to equalize really late in the 89th minute through Dele Alli. Below are Tottenham’s individual player ratings.
The Frenchman had a decent game and made two vital saves to deny West Brom. He often put himself in tough situations by playing really late.
The right-back was decent throughout the game but his offensive influence was quite limited in this particular game.
The Belgian was having an excellent game until he was stretchered off after a knock on the knee. Tottenham’s lack of defensive command was quite clearly visible after his departure.
Vertonghen struggled a bit with a different partner at the back after Alderweireld’s departure although he managed to do quite well overall.
Davies was quite calm at the left-back spot and often got the ball out of tough situations. He tried his luck from long range on two occasions and forced Ben Foster into an excellent save.
Wanyama did well to retain possession but often slowed down the offensive play with some sideways passing. His defensive work and ball retention was excellent throughout.
Sissoko made some decent runs and got into good positions but was often clueless. His cross weren’t up to the required standard.
Lamela was often ponderous on the ball which took the sting out of the attack. His performance was quite underwhelming.
Alli was really good throughout the game as he made some really good runs into the box. He provided Tottenham with the equalizer with a deft finish.
Eriksen was quite heavily involved in the build of play. In spite of two excellent shots on target from the Danish playmaker, Ben Foster made brilliant saves to deny him.
Janssen had a good game with his back against the goal but struggled to provide Tottenham with goal threat mainly due to West Brom’s deep defensive line. He had a mixed game with some decent layoffs but it seemed that he lacked confidence which resulted in his rather average game.
Dier made some decent tackles but was caught out of position on two separate occasions.
Dembele did give Tottenham an ability to retain the ball for longer durations but it just wasn’t enough for the game.
Son was really influential in the few minutes he came on for as he really opened the game up. He was also involved in Alli’s goal.
