Sissoko Gets 8.5, Kane With 7 | Tottenham Hotspur Players Rated In Comfortable Win Vs Cardiff City

Tottenham Hotspur took on Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium earlier this evening looking to bounce back from their humiliating 3-1 loss at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Spurs began the match on the offensive and took the lead in the 3rd minute courtesy of Harry Kane’s fluke goal. Mauricio Pochettino’s men doubled their lead in the 12th minute courtesy of Christian Eriksen’s beautiful finish from 20 yards. Heung-min Son put some real distance in between the two teams half-way into the first half to put the contest to bed.

Both teams fought hard in the second half but couldn’t add to the goal tally as the match finished 3-0 in Spurs’ favour.

Let’s take a look at how each Spurs player performed during the match against the Bluebirds.

GK: Hugo Lloris – 6.5/10

The French keeper made some good saves and managed to keep a clean sheet to show for his efforts.

RB: Kieran Trippier – 6/10

The English fullback played some dangerous crosses into the box and did his defensive duties in his own half.

CB: Davinson Sánchez – 7/10

He made one mistake in the first half but recovered well to put in an excellent shift in defence.

CB: Toby Alderweireld – 7/10

The Belgian defender made a couple of crucial interceptions to keep a shut-out on the day.

LB: Danny Rose – 7/10

He made a fantastic clearance early on and was a good outlet down the left flank. However, his final ball left a lot to be desired.

CM: Harry Winks – 7/10

The youngster worked hard and linked up the Spurs defence with their attack quite effectively while playing in a holding role in midfield.

CM: Moussa Sissoko – 8.5/10

The French powerhouse broke down a lot of opposition attacks and made some terrific driving runs into the opposition half. He was by far the best Tottenham player on the pitch.

CM: Christian Eriksen – 8/10

The Danish international looked classy in midfield and provided some creativity in the middle of the park.

CAM: Dele Alli – 7/10

He worked hard for his team and linked up well with Kane in the attacking third of the pitch.

ST: Heung-Min Son – 8/10

The South-Korean attacker was always willing to take on the Bluebirds defence with his mazy runs and showed plenty of invention going forward.

ST: Harry Kane – 7/10

The English international found the back of the net after a fluke incident but was a good target man up top.


CM: Oliver Skipp – 6/10

He played some good passes while operating in a floating role in midfield.

ST: Fernando Llorente – N/A
