Tottenham Hotspur’s woes at home continue as they were held to a 3-3 draw by West Ham. The Lilywhites were cruising to a comfortable victory, thanks to a healthy 3-0 lead, but a late comeback from the Hammers saw them concede two sloppy goals before a majestic strike from Manuel Lanzini in the final minute of added time secured a deserved point for the visitors.

Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings Vs West Ham

Hugo Lloris 6/10

Hugo Lloris was unlucky to miss out on a clean sheet. He simply wasn’t helped by some shoddy defending from the centre-backs, during the final phase of the game and the Frenchman had absolutely zero chance in keeping out Lanzini’s strike for the third.

Serge Aurier 7/10

Serge Aurier continued on his solid performance against Manchester United. He looked hungry going forward, providing offensive support for his teammates while creating a couple of turnovers on the flanks.

Toby Alderweireld 4/10

Filling in for Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld simply wasn’t up to the mark. The Belgian had very little to do for the most of the game, but he didn’t manage to step up when he was needed as his lack of leadership saw Tottenham concede three goals late in the game.

Davinson Sanchez 5/10

Davinson Sanchez was excellent in this fixture for the most part. But, it was his awful clearance that found his own net, virtually gifting West Ham a way back into the game. The Colombian needs to improve on his accuracy and confidence during defensive phases.

Sergio Reguilon 7.5/10

Sergio Reguilon did what he does best – moving forward, bombarding the left flank with forays down the flanks. He provided a sumptuous cross to find Harry Kane for the third goal but may have contributed a little more defensively.

Moussa Sissoko 7.5/10

Moussa Sissoko was excellent in midfield. He created a host of turnovers, using his aggression and ability to win back possession for his side to good effect. A bit unfortunate that West Ham got back into the game so quickly during the final phase.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 8/10

West Ham’s sensational comeback could overshadow yet another outstanding display from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg today. The Dane marshalled the Tottenham midfield, with his marvellous positioning sense and an ability to read the game. Also looked flawless in his passing.

Tanguy Ndombele 8/10

Tanguy Ndombele thrived in the number ten role this evening, showcasing his tremendous skills on the ball. He was a catalyst for Spurs going forward while the Frenchman also created a couple of turnovers in the middle of the park.

Steven Bergwijn 6.5/10

Didn’t do as much as he would have liked, but was still a menacing presence down the left-hand side. Made way for Gareth Bale during the final phase of the game.

Harry Kane 10/10

Harry Kane was by far the most influential player in this game. He provided the assist for the all-important opener before scoring a brace himself. The Englishman was always willing to work hard for his team, even in defence.

Son Heung-Min 9/10

Another marvellous attacking display from Son Heung-Min, who was a menace for the West Ham defence throughout the game. The South Korean international was the architect behind most of Tottenham’s chances, combining incredibly well with Kane to put his team in a commanding position.

SUBSTITUTES

Gareth Bale 6.5/10

Made his highly awaited appearance in the second half, replacing Bergwijn. Didn’t do much aside from making a majestic run, which could have found the back of the net.

Harry Winks 5/10

In a defensive move by Jose Mourinho, Harry Winks replaced Ndombele, but to little effect as the Englishman struggled to provide any solidity in the middle of the park.

Lucas Moura N/A

A late replacement for Son.
