Tottenham Hotspur faced off against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena earlier tonight hoping to get some revenge for their 7-2 humiliation at home in the reverse fixture. Spurs were completely dominated in the first half and conceded the opening goal in the 14th minute when Kingsley Coman scored from close range. However, Jose Mourinho’s men managed to net the equaliser just six minutes later via Ryan Sessegnon’s goal. The Bavarian giants finished the first half with a flurry of attacks, and they were rewarded for their efforts when Thomas Muller scored with an instinctive finish just before half-time.

Phillipe Coutinho made the points secure for the home side when he found the back of the net in the 64th minute. The match ended with Bayern claiming a comfortable 3-1 victory versus the North London outfit.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player fared during the clash against Bayern Munich.

GK: Paulo Gazzaniga – 6.5/10

The Argentine keeper couldn’t do much about any of the three goals he conceded tonight. However, he did make a couple of world-class save to deny the Bayern attackers in the first half.

RB: Kyle Walker-Peters – 5/10

The Spurs youngster was often caught out of position and left his teammates at the back exposed. He was also ineffective in the opposition half.

CB: Juan Foyth – 6/10

He kept calm and retained possession well inside his own half. However, he won’t be happy after shipping in three goals during the match.

CB: Toby Alderweireld – 6/10

If it wasn’t of the Belgian’s efforts in defence, Tottenham could have suffered a heavy defeat tonight. 

LB: Danny Rose – 4/10

The English defender was at fault in the lead-up to Bayern’s second goal of the game. He needs to improve soon or else risk being shipped out by Mourinho in January.

CM: Eric Dier – 5/10

The Spurs skipper made a few vital interceptions but he was a bit careless when in possession of the ball.

CM: Moussa Sissoko – 5/10

He worked his socks off as usual but it was not enough to stop the opposition from creating a plethora of chances throughout the contest.

RM: Giovani Lo Celso – 5/10

He contributed in the lead-up to Sessegnon’s goal. Otherwise, his end product was quite poor during the encounter.

CAM: Christian Eriksen – 5.5/10

The Danish playmaker was largely ineffective in the first half but came back strong to create a couple of meaningful chances in the second 45.

LM: Ryan Sessegnon – 8/10

The ex-Fulham prospect looked sharp and was a constant menace for the Bayern defenders down the left flank. He scored a good goal to equalise for Spurs in the 20th minute.

ST: Lucas Moura – 5/10

The Brazilian speedster was mostly a frustrated figure whose attempts to make penetrative runs were often blocked off by the German opponents. It was a disjointed performance from him tonight.

Substitutes:

ST: Heung-min Son – 4/10

He squandered a couple of decent opportunities to test Manuel Neuer after coming off the bench.

CM: Oliver Skipp – 6/10

The Spurs youngster put in a nice little cameo for the final 25 minutes of the game. He passed the ball confidently and looked like a player hungry for more first-team chances.

CM: Victor Wanyama – N/A

The midfielder did not have enough time to make an impact.
