Tottenham Hotspur clashed heads with Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a favourable result on the road. Spurs were lackluster in the first half and were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

It was a similar story in the second half as both sides canceled each other out. The final score read 0-0 after normal time.

The home team finally took the lead in the 107th minute courtesy of Josh Coburn’s finish. The match ended with Spurs losing by a narrow 1-0 scoreline after extra time.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player performed during the match against Middlesborough.

GK: Hugo Lloris – 7/10

The French keeper made a few solid saves during the contest but will be disappointed for conceding a goal in extra time.

CB: Cristian Romero – 6.5/10

Romero was strong in the air and kept a solid shape at the back. However, he won’t be pleased after allowing such a late goal.

CB: Eric Dier – 7/10

The English defender cleared the danger multiple times during the game and was a threat at the other end as well.

CB: Ben Davies – 7/10

He earned the ball back a few times for his team and won multiple duels in the air.

RM: Matt Doherty – 7/10

Doherty performed his defensive duties well and was lively in the opponent’s half. He got replaced in the 80th minute.

CM: Pierre-Emile Højbjerg – 7/10

He anchored the midfield well and made a few decent runs from midfield. Hojbjerg even managed to orchestrate some inviting chances for his teammates to score.

CM: Harry Winks – 6.5/10

Winks earned the ball back a couple of times and engineered one key chance in the final third.

LM: Ryan Sessegnon – 6/10

He tracked back to defend when needed but offered very little going forward.

RAM: Dejan Kulusevski – 7/10

Kulusevski created a few promising opportunities for others around him but didn’t do enough to register a goal.

LAM: Heung-min Son – 7/10

He was a constant menace in front of the opposition goal but failed to finish off any of his chances.

ST: Harry Kane – 7/10

Kane made some clever runs with the ball and made two good opportunities for his teammates. However, he didn’t do enough to get his name on the scoresheet.


RM: Emerson Royal – 6/10

He had a quiet game after coming off the bench.

LM: Steven Bergwijn – 6/10

Bergwijn struggled to influence the game in the final third.

LM: Sergio Reguilon – 6/10

The Spaniard offered very little in the opponent’s half.

ST: Dane Scarlett – N/A

The 17-year-old hardly had any time to make an impact.
