Tottenham Hotspur faced off against Ludogorets Razgrad at the Stadium Ludogorets Arena earlier tonight looking to pick up another win in the UEFA Europa League. Spurs began the match on the front foot and took the lead in the 13th minute courtesy of Harry Kane’s goal. Lucas Moura doubled the North London club’s advantage just after the half-hour mark to put some daylight between the two teams at half-time.

Claudiu Keseru gave the home team a glimmer of hope with his goal in the 50th minute. However, Giovani Lo Celso made the points secure for his team when he found the back of the net in the 62nd minute. Spurs ended up cruising to a 3-1 victory away at Bulgaria and edged one step closer towards qualification into the knockout phases from Group J.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player fared during the contest against Ludogorets.

GK: Joe Hart – 6.5/10

The English keeper made a few solid stops but will be disappointed for not keeping a clean sheet.

RB: Matt Doherty – 7/10

The ex-Wolves right-back made a couple of decent chances for his teammates in the opposition half and was dominant in the air as well. He even passed the ball relatively well and was unfortunate to end the game without an assist to his name.

CB: Toby Alderweireld – 6.5/10

He won a few important headers and made a couple of good blocks as well. However, Alderweireld won’t be happy for conceding an early goal in the second half.

CB: Eric Dier – 6.5/10

The English talent made some crucial interceptions and was always willing to get on the ball and retain possession at the back.

LB: Ben Davies – 6/10

The Welsh full-back didn’t put a foot wrong in defence but lacked the ambition to get forward, which was unlike him.

CM: Moussa Sissoko – 5/10

He was mostly anonymous in the first half and was subbed at half-time.

CM: Harry Winks – 7/10

Winks had more touches of the ball than anyone else on the field and was heavily involved at both ends of the pitch. Mourinho will be quite happy with his performance tonight.

RW: Gareth Bale – 7/10

The Welsh international hardly gave away the ball and played a crucial role in the lead-up to his team’s second goal of the night. He ran out of gas and got subbed in the second half.

CAM: Giovani Lo Celso – 7.5/10

Lo Celso got his name on the scoresheet shortly after the hour mark which sealed the three points for the visitors. He also engineered a couple of decent opportunities for his teammates to score during his time on the field.

LW: Lucas Moura – 8.5/10

The Brazilian speedster set-up Harry Kane’s goal in the 13th minute from a corner and even scored a goal himself just 19 minutes later to give his side a 2-0 advantage at half-time. He got subbed at the hour mark.

ST: Harry Kane – 8/10

The English striker squandered some inviting chances to score during the game. However, he gave Spurs the lead with a good header in the early stages of the contest and picked up an assist for setting up Lucas Moura’s goal.

Substitutes:

CM: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 6.5/10

Hojbjerg was full of energy and running in midfield.

ST: Carlos Vinicius – 5/10

He worked his socks off but didn’t manage to find the cutting edge in the attacking third.

LW: Son Heung-min – 7.5/10

The South Korean international came off the bench to set-up Lo Celso’s second-half goal with his first touch.

RW: Steven Bergwijn – 6/10

He looked a real threat but didn’t have his finishing boots on in the final quarter of the match.

CM: Tanguy Ndombele – 6/10

Ndombele did well to see out the win.
