Tottenham Hotspur failed to secure their qualification to the knockout rounds of the UEFA Europa League, as they were held to a 3-3 draw by LASK this evening. The Lilywhites never really looked at their best, and despite scoring three goals, their Austrian opponents managed to seal a late point through a wonder goal from substitute Mamoudou Karamoko.
Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings Vs LASK
Joe Hart 4/10
Joe Hart was poor to deal with a relatively straight attempt from Johannes Eggestein for the second LASK goal. One could expect much better from the experienced goalkeeper.
Matt Doherty 5/10
Matt Doherty struggled to make his influence felt on the right flank. He was often pressurised by the opposing winger as well as the wingback Rene Renner.
Davinson Sanchez 6/10
Davinson Sanchez could have done much better in keeping up with Eggestein for the second LASK goal, though the Colombian did make amends with a fantastic long ball that found Steven Bergwijn.
Japhet Tanganga 6.5/10
Japhet Tanganga was fairly solid for the most part of the game, but couldn’t have done anything to deny the second-half goals from Eggestein and Karamoko.
Ben Davies 6.5/10
Ben Davies was much more solid when compared to Doherty on the opposite flank. The Welshman didn’t allow the likes of Andreas Gruber and Reinhold Rantfl to make any impact in the defensive third.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 7/10
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg anchored the Spurs midfield, though it was indeed bizarre to see the Dane starting in the lone holding midfield role. He did well nonetheless, winning a couple of balls in midfield and distribute possession in the middle of the park.
Giovani Lo Celso 6.5/10
Giovani Lo Celso had a more eventful game when compared to his attacking teammates. However, the Argentine could have preferred a more attacking role, though he did create one excellent chance late in the game.
Gareth Bale 6.5/10
Gareth Bale was another player who didn’t make much of an impact going forward. Had more freedom in the second half but fluffed an excellent opportunity as his squared pass was behind Son. However, the Welshman did convert the penalty for the first Spurs equaliser.
Tanguy Ndombele 6/10
It was a quiet game for Tanguy Ndombele, who was given very little space and time on the ball. However, the Frenchman did pick up the loose ball and provide a clinical through ball to set up Son for the second goal.
Lucas Moura 6/10
A rather uneventful game for Lucas Moura, who provided very little going forward. He found it difficult to evade the LASK press, eventually making way for Moussa Sissoko around the hour mark.
Son Heung-Min 6.5/10
Son Heung-Min had a quiet night leading the Spurs attack this evening. He didn’t get much service, but did well to maximise his chance in the second half to score the second goal.
Steven Bergwijn 6.5/10
Steven Bergwijn made the run in behind the defence that led to the late penalty. Offered pace and energy after replacing Lucas around the hour mark.
Moussa Sissoko 6/10
Provided additional support to Hojbjerg in midfield after coming on for Ndombele, although it made minimal impact on the proceedings.
Eric Dier 5/10
Failed to offer solidity in the Spurs backline and may have done a little better with his clearance.
Dele Alli N/A
Calmly converted a spot-kick late in the game.
Serge Aurier N/A
A late replacement for the tiring Bale.
