Tottenham Hotspur left it late to secure a 4-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers in the 4th round of the FA Cup. The Lilywhites were far from brilliant for the majority of the game which looked destined to head towards extra time. But, a late flurry of attacks saw Jose Mourinho’s men not only score the winner but also add further gloss to the scoreline, thanks to a brace from substitute Tanguy Ndombele.

Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings Vs Wycombe

Joe Hart 6/10

Joe Hart didn’t have much to do, especially in the second half as Tottenham completely dominated the game. He did make an important early save, which was important in the context of the tie.

Japhet Tanganga 7/10

Japhet Tanganga had an attempt on goal that hit the post, in what was otherwise a rather uneventful game for the defender. He was taken off at half-time in favour of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Davinson Sanchez 7/10

Davinson Sanchez had a comfortable evening for the most part, though he did look troubled in one-on-one duels against Akinfenwa in the second half. Unsurprisingly so, given the 38-year-old’s relatively large frame.

Toby Alderweireld 7/10

Toby Alderweireld took his time to settle into the game, which paid off as the Belgian was a rock at the back for Tottenham in the second 45 minutes.

Ben Davies 7.5/10

Ben Davies offered the necessary defensive support for the two centre-backs and went forward whenever it was required. A neat and tidy display from the left-back, as usual.

Moussa Sissoko 7.5/10

Moussa Sissoko had difficulties settling into the game but looked far more comfortable in the second half when he was shifted into the right-back position.

Harry Winks 9/10

Harry Winks was one of the best performers for Tottenham Hotspur in this game. The Englishman orchestrated the midfield with his passing and scored the all-important winner late in the game.

Gareth Bale 8/10

Gareth Bale had an awful first-half, where he missed at least three good scoring opportunities. However, a late first-half goal boosted his confidence as he ended up dominating the Wycombe backline.

Erik Lamela 6/10

Erik Lamela was quite wasteful in the final third this evening. He looked sloppy in possession and couldn’t make any difference to the proceedings, before deservedly making way for Tanguy Ndombele.

Lucas Moura 7.5/10

Lucas Moura was the brightest spark in the Tottenham Hotspur until the 68th minute when he, unfortunately, had to make way for Son Heung-Min. Unlucky not to score or assist a single goal.

Carlos Vinicius 6/10

A poor attacking display from Carlos Vinicius, who simply wasn’t involved enough in the game. Deservedly taken off early in the second half, in favour of Harry Kane.


Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 8.5/10

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg changed the complexion of the game after coming on for Tanganga in the second half. His composure and reliability helped Tottenham force a late comeback, with the midfielder notably registering the assist for the fourth goal.

Harry Kane 7.5/10

Harry Kane was influential after coming on for Vinicius midway through the second half. He made things a little more difficult for Wycombe defenders, though he will be disappointed to have failed to find the back of the net.

Son Heung-Min 7/10

Son Heung-Min was initially wasteful after replacing Lucas but got into his stride eventually. He notably assisted Ndombele’s first-goal with a selfless pass inside the box.

Tanguy Ndombele 8.5/10

Ndomeble’s late cameo that saw him score two goals fired Tottenham into the next round.

Joe Rodon N/A

A late replacement for the tiring Davies.
