Match Report: Everton 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham got back to winning ways in the Premier League, thanks to an incredible performance by Harry Kane, who broke his duck in the league this season. We didn’t have the greatest of results while playing at home, but away to Everton, we were phenomenal as we defeated Ronald Koeman’s side 3-0.

Everton were put to the sword by Kane and co, with the Englishman opening the scoring with a wonderful effort in the first half. Christian Eriksen added a second after a spill from the Toffees goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and ensured the Lilywhites finished the first-half with a two-goal lead.

The home side couldn’t deal with the movement and swagger from our side and it was Kane again, who scored by converting a cross to make it a three-goal lead. That is the way it stayed, even though we had a number of chances to score more.

Mauricio Pochettino must have been pleased with the win and the next item on our agenda would be the Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund.

There were a number of star performers from the win and here is how Spurs fared on the day:

Tottenham Player Ratings

Hugo Lloris – 6/10

Even though Everton didn’t really trouble our captain, Lloris made a hash of a couple of clearances and almost gifted a goal to the opposition. He was lucky he didn’t get punished and he needs to work on his distribution.

Toby Alderweireld – 8/10

Alderweireld was brilliant once again, despite picking up a booking early on in the game. The Belgian made a couple of blocks and even had a pop at goal in a dominant display.

Davinson Sanchez – 7.5/10

The new signing didn’t look off pace and seemed to slot in perfectly with Vertonghen and Alderweireld. Sanchez seems like a great buy from Poch and hopefully, he will have more such games for us.

Jan Vertonghen – 7.5/10

Another solid display from the Belgian defender and the best part of the day was that he didn’t really have a lot to do against Everton’s attack.  

Kieran Trippier – 7/10

Trippier didn’t have the greatest game when it came to his attacking output. He was decent in defence but didn’t really have to do much at Goodison Park.

Moussa Sissoko – 6/10

Sissoko had a couple of great chances to score and get the monkey off his back but to no avail. The Frenchman will play a few games for us this season and he just might be able to give us a positive output before the end of the season.

Eric Dier – 7/10

This was a decent display for Dier as a central midfielder, as he screened our defence really well. He did look more comfortable in midfield than in defence and hopefully with Sanchez’s signing, Dier can stick to one position and not be shifted around.

Ben Davies – 8/10

The other wing-back in our team had a field day as he played a hand in the second and third goal while he also put in a number of great crosses early on in the game.

Dele Alli – 7/10

Alli was marshalled well by the home side, which meant he kept on getting fouled or double-teamed. The Englishman did do well in spurts and did have a big role to play in the second goal we scored.

Christian Eriksen – 8/10

The Dane was another one of our players at the heart of everything good in the attack today. He did score a goal after a bit of a scrap in the Everton penalty box and he linked really well with the rest of the players, especially Kane.

Harry Kane – 9.5/10

Kane’s August hoodoo is over for another season as he bagged a brace against the Toffees. Everton didn’t really put up a great defensive showing but the first goal from Kane was a beauty. Kane was a pain to the home side and scored a second, while he could have assisted a few goals as well.

Substitutes

Mousa Dembele – 5.5/10

The Belgian came on to provide support to the wide players and did well.

Harry Winks – 5/10

Winks was brought on to replace the injured Sissoko and did alright in the end.

Son Heung-min – NA

Was a late sub for Kane and didn’t really have a lot of time to do much.

“The season is saved”, “This is the signing you make?” – Some Spurs fans unhappy with latest deal by club

Published

on

Tottenham haven’t done all that well in recent games with three losses on the spin. The Premier League loss against Liverpool was tough to take but the 2-1 defeat at Inter Milan was even worse.

We were leading till the 85th minute before Mauro Icardi and Matias Vecino got the goals at San Siro.

Tottenham bounced back with a win against Brighton & Hove Albion but prior to that, the team had time to pose for a new range of apparel from Hugo Boss.

A post from the Spurs Twitter account revealed that our first-team squad would be sporting suits from the company from the ‘Create Your Look’ line.

Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and a host of other players and staff were pictured in the dapper suits.

It isn’t a surprise that teams are being sponsored by brands but this deal does come a little late, given that our season is well over a month in.

Some fans, however, were upset with the deal and here are some of those reactions from Twitter.

Lamela stars: Player ratings from Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion

Published

on

Tottenham got back to winning ways after three successive defeats, thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela.

Glenn Murray handled the ball late in the first half which allowed Kane to score from the spot. The home team came at us with all they had in the second half and Paulo Gazzaniga pulled off a great save before Danny Rose crossed in for Lamela to slot in our second.

Anthony Knockaert pulled one back in stoppage time to make it a nervous last minute or so but we held on for all three points.

There were a few heroes on the pitch today and here are the player ratings from the game.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 6.5/10

The youngster did pretty well and made one good save to deny Knockaert. He couldn’t do much regarding the goal he conceded.

Kieran Trippier – 6/10

Trippier didn’t have the greatest time as he struggled a bit and even got a yellow card for a needless foul.

Toby Alderweireld – 7.5/10

The Belgian had a great chance to score early on and did a great job at keeping things tight for Spurs.

Jan Vertonghen – 7/10

Vertonghen didn’t have a lot to do at the back but he helped us to an important win in the final few minutes of the game.

Danny Rose – 7/10

Rose got the assist for the second goal but didn’t have the greatest of games for us. The Englishman should have done better for the goal we conceded.

Eric Dier – 5.5/10

This was another poor performance from the Englishman as he kept on making the wrong passes and losing possession.

Mousa Dembele – 7/10

The Belgian had a decent outing as his passing was good and kept things ticking for Spurs in the middle of the park.

Son Heung-min – 6/10

This was a quiet outing for the South Korean and he should have done more to help Spurs get all three points.

Christian Eriksen – 6/10

Another player who seemed to be out of touch was Eriksen. He must do a lot more if he is to keep his place in the team.

Lucas Moura – 6.5/10

The Brazilian tried to do things but they weren’t coming off. He did have a role in the second goal and was later subbed by Dele Alli.

Harry Kane – 6.5/10

Kane scored the penalty but couldn’t get another shot away as Brighton did well at keeping him quiet.

Substitutes

Erik Lamela – 7.5/10

The Argentine changed things as he provided an attacking outlet. He did well for the goal and maybe should start more games.

Dele Alli – N/A

The Englishman didn’t have a lot of time to make a difference to the game.

“We need this man in our team” – Some Spurs fans want 21-year-old Lyon midfield tank to join club

Published

on

Tanguy Ndombele was linked with a move to Tottenham in the summer, as per Sky Sports. The Lyon midfielder is a quality destroyer in the middle of the park and was at it again last night.

The French side played Manchester City and came out 2-1 winners at the Etihad. While Nabil Fekir starred in the attack, Ndombele was immense in the midfield and did his bit for Lyon.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has played five times for the Ligue 1 club this season and his performance in the Champions League caught the eye of a few Tottenham fans.

Spurs didn’t buy a single player in the offseason and have struggled in recent times, losing their last three games. Ndombele might not help us find the back of the net but he surely can keep the midfield from being overrun.

Some Spurs fans were quick to suggest we needed the 21-year-old while some were irate as to why we didn’t add to the midfield in the summer.
