Tottenham Hotspur entertained Ludogorets at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier tonight hoping to pick up a win at home. Spurs made an excellent start to the game and took the lead via Carlos Vinicius’ goal in the 16th minute. The Brazilian marksman struck again just 18 minutes later to give Spurs a commanding two-goal lead at the half-time break.
The North London outfit continued their dominance in the second half and scored two more goals courtesy of Harry Winks and Lucas Moura respectively. The contest finished with Jose Mourinho’s men running away with a 4-0 victory at the English capital.
Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player fared during the match against Ludogorets.
GK: Joe Hart – 6/10
The English keeper was hardly tested during the game and secured an easy clean sheet.
RB: Matt Doherty – 7/10
He hardly gave away anything inside his half and was responsible for orchestrating a couple of decent chances from the right flank.
CB: Davinson Sanchez – 7/10
Sanchez was a towering presence at the back and made some important interceptions on his way to earning a comfortable shutout.
CB: Japhet Tanganga – 7.5/10
He passed the ball immaculately out from defence and maintained a solid shape to restrict the opposition from scoring throughout the 90 minutes.
LB: Ben Davies – 7.5/10
The talented full-back did not have too many problems in defence but was a good outlet in the opposition half. He ended the game with an assist to his name.
CM: Tanguy Ndombele – 8/10
Ndombele bossed the game for an hour before being replaced by Pierre-Emile Højbjerg. He provided enough bite and steel in midfield to help his team secure maximum points from this midweek game.
CM: Harry Winks – 8.5/10
The English midfield ace produced a sensational attacking display tonight. He created multiple chances for his teammates to score and managed to get Tottenham’s third goal just after the hour mark, which essentially killed the game off.
RW: Gareth Bale – 6/10
The Welsh winger showed a few signs of promise and was always willing to have a shot at goal. However, he was toothless in the final third and ended the game without a goal or an assist to his name.
CAM: Dele Alli – 8/10
Alli had a good game while operating in the number ten position. He dictated plays well in the attacking third and picked up an assist which would give him a confidence boost.
LW: Lucas Moura – 8/10
The Brazilian speedster put the icing on the cake as he scored Spurs’ fourth goal in the final quarter of the match. He was a constant menace for the Ludogorets defenders.
ST: Carlos Vinicius – 9.5/10
Vinicius scored two first-half goals and secured an assist as well in the second 45 minutes. He seems to be growing in confidence with each game and deserved to be awarded the man of the match award.
CM: Pierre-Emile Højbjerg – 6/10
He got cautioned after coming on for the final 30 minutes of the contest.
ST: Jack Clarke – 6.5/10
The 20-year-old engineered a couple of decent openings in the final third.
GK: Alfie Whiteman – N/A
He did not get enough time to warrant a rating.
CM: Harvey White – N/A
White hardly had any time to make an impact.
ST: Dane Scarlett – N/A
The 16-year-old got some valuable first-team minutes under his belt.
