Tottenham Hotspur locked horns with Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier tonight as they focused on earning a positive result away from home in the Premier League. Spurs made a horror start to the game as they conceded the opening goal in the seventh minute when Jadon Sancho found the back of the net. Marcus Rashford doubled the home team’s advantage in the 44th minute as Ryan Mason’s side went into the half-time break 2-0 down on the scoreline.

The North London club found a way back into the game thanks to Pedro Porro’s brilliant finish in the 56th minute. Son Heung-min ended up netting the all-important equaliser in the 79th minute from close range. The contest finished with Tottenham earning a 2-2 draw on the road.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham Hotspur player fared during the match against the Red Devils.

GK: Fraser Forster – 7/10

Forster made some solid saves at the back but conceded two poor goals in the first half.

CB: Cristian Romero – 7.5/10

He did his fair share of defending inside his half and was a strong presence in the air.

CB: Eric Dier – 6.5/10

The English talent made a few important clearances at the back but wasted a great chance to score in the second half.

CB: Clement Lenglet – 6/10

Lenglet looked far from convincing at the back and deserves some credit for putting his foot through the ball when required.

He worked hard to protect his backline but struggled to influence the game in the Man United half.

CM: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 7/10

Hojbjerg anchored the midfield well and was a threat in the final third.

LM: Ivan Perisic – 7/10

The Croatia international was a positive influence at both ends of the field but was a bit inaccurate with his passing.

Son caused a lot of headaches for the Man United defenders and managed to score the all-important equaliser which salvaged a point for Tottenham.

LAM: Richarlison – 6.5/10

He made two decent runs with the ball but struggled to influence the game in the final third.

ST: Harry Kane – 8/10

Kane linked up play really well with others around him and managed to secure an assist for setting up Son’s goal with a terrific pass. He did everything but score tonight.


RAM: Dejan Kulusevski – 6/10

He made one encouraging run with the ball.

CB: Ben Davies – 6/10

Davies lacked quality on the ball.
