Ndombele Picks Up 6.5, Alli With A 4 | Tottenham Hotspur Players Rated In Draw Vs Norwich City

Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur side dropped more points ahead of the new year, as their away fixture against Norwich City ended in a gutting 2-2 draw. Although the Canaries only registered two shots on target, a Mario Vrancic strike and a Serge Aurier own goal gave the Canaries the advantage. Two set-piece goals from Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane secured the point for Spurs on the night.

Here are the Tottenham Hotspur players rated in their draw Vs Norwich City.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 6

The second-choice goalkeeper arguably should’ve done a better job stopping the own goal, but didn’t have too much else to deal with, considering that the Canaries only had two shots on target.

Juan Foyth – 4.5

Effectively gave the opening goal away by dribbling into trouble in a dangerous area. Was constantly troubled by Pukki’s movement in the final third, and was correctly taken off.

Toby Alderweireld – 6

The Belgian veteran could’ve probably gotten something on the Vrancic shot, had he reacted just a second faster. Commanded the defence well for the rest of the fixture though.

Jan Vertonghen – 5.5

The versatile star began the game on the left side of the Spurs back-three but didn’t have too much joy due to Pukki’s willing forward runs. He was taken off in the second half.

Tanguy Ndombele – 6.5

The Frenchman made a couple of decent passes in the middle of the park during the opening stages but really came to life in the late on in the match. Worked some intricate forward sequences as well.

Serge Aurier – 6

The explosive full-back wasn’t at his best against the Canaries as his final delivery into the box was always found lacking. Worked very hard tracking back but unfortunately gave away the own goal.

Giovani Lo Celso – 5

The Argentine star took a couple of good touches in midfield during the first half but was only a spectator for most of the tie. He was taken off as Jose pushed for the win.

Christian Eriksen – 6

The Premier League veteran scored a trademark belter of a free-kick to stun the Carrow Road crowd. Tried to link up the play in the final stages of the game, but was mostly ineffective.

Ryan Sessegnon – 6

The youngster was used in two different positions on the night and was consistently average all across. Delivered a couple of decent crosses, but failed to cause a real impact.

Dele Alli – 4

The Englishman was arguably the Lilywhites’ worst player in the fixture, as he bottled a couple of golden opportunities to open the scoring for Spurs in the first half.

Harry Kane – 6

The English striker struggled to make anything stick in the first half, and failed to hold the ball up on multiple occasions as well. Won and scored the equalising penalty.

Substitutes

Davinson Sanchez – 6

Came on in place of the shaky Juan Foyth, and shored up what was a leaky-looking Tottenham defence. Tried to move the ball forward as Spurs pushed for the winner.

Lucas Moura – 6

The Brazilian struggled to have a real impact until the late stages of the game, and yet didn’t offer anything of meaning throughout the second half.

Erik Lamela – NA

Didn’t have time to make an impact.

Nikhil has been an avid Chelsea fan for as long as the concept of time has existed and rumours say that he even bleeds blue. Having lived in the UK for 3 years, Nikhil is said to have an excellent understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the English game. His role model is the greatest manager of all time - Jose Mourinho.
