Kane stars for Lilywhites: Tottenham player ratings from 2-0 win at Huddersfield

Published

Harry Kane Tottenham

A Harry Kane brace in the space of nine minutes was enough to see off Huddersfield Town. Tottenham were coming off a 4-2 penalty shootout win over Watford in the Carabao Cup and were missing Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen from the team.

Although the away side weren’t great, they took the lead after a pinpoint cross from Kieran Trippier found Harry Kane, who headed the ball in the 25th minute.

Danny Rose was tugged in the box and Kane made no mistake by slamming home our second in the 34th minute.

Huddersfield did have a couple of chances to score but we controlled the game well and moved into the top four with the result.

Kane was brilliant in the game but there were a number of other stars on show as well.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 8/10

The Argentine was great with his hands but his kicking wasn’t too hot. This was still a commanding performance from the keeper and he should be our No.2 behind Hugo Lloris.

Toby Alderweireld – 7/10

The Belgian looked off the pace in the first half but kept things tidy in the second to record a clean sheet.

Davinson Sanchez

Davinson Sanchez – 7.5/10

Possibly the best defender of the afternoon. The Colombian was a rock at the back and only made one small error which Toby dealt with in the second half.

Jan Vertonghen – 5/10

Vertonghen had a decent first half but had to be taken off at half-time with an injury.

Kieran Trippier – 7.5/10

A brilliant cross for Kane got us the opening goal but the Englishman didn’t attack a lot in the second half.

Eric Dier – 6.5/10

The Englishman’s passing was still wayward but he did a decent job when moved to the back in the second half.

Mousa Dembele – 5.5/10

Another player was taken off at half-time, Dembele was his usual self with his passing and control in the midfield.

Danny Rose – 7/10

The Englishman did a much better job at left-back/left-wingback than Ben Davies and won us the penalty that more or less made the game safe.

Lucas Moura – 7.5/10

It was Moura who created the first chance as his run led to Trippier getting the ball for the cross. The Brazilian had chances to score but just couldn’t get it right in the second half.

Son Heung-min – 6.5/10

The South Korean was decent in the game but we need to see more of him in the attacking third.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane – 8.5/10

This wasn’t Kane’s best game but the first goal silenced the home crowd and laid the foundation for an important win.

Substitutes

Victor Wanyama – 6/10

The Kenyan did alright in the midfield after coming on in the second half for Tottenham.

Harry Winks – 6.5/10

Winks did a lot of work in the second half and hopefully, we will see more of him in the coming weeks.

Tottenham celebrate Carabao Cup win over Watford

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini expects Robert Snodgrass to be back for the London derby against Tottenham on Saturday, according to the Evening Standard.

The Scot withdrew from the Nations League game against Portugal and returned to England for treatment, as per the report.

Snodgrass didn’t play in Scotland’s loss to Israel, and the Hammers knew about his issue and were in communication with the national team.

West Ham were on a decent run before a 1-0 loss against Brighton & Hove Albion before the international break. The Hammers beat Manchester United at the London Stadium and even held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw.

Tottenham, for their part, will have a few players out with injuries. Jan Vertonghen is out till next month, as per the report, and a number of players could be last-minute call-ups as they fight to regain fitness.

Jan Vertonghen

Visiting the London Stadium will not be easy, especially after the international break but we have to win these games to keep the pressure on the league leaders.

Tottenham are a couple of points behind the pace-setting trio of Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, and it will be important to see how we fare against our rivals on Saturday.

Juan Foyth

Juan Foyth

Juan Foyth hasn’t made an appearance for Tottenham this season but was called up for the international friendlies against Brazil and Saudi Arabia.

The youngster played eight times for Spurs last season but didn’t make a Premier League appearance. The Argentine joined Spurs from Estudiantes at the start of the previous campaign and shared some images of his time with the national side.

The 20-year-old defender was spotted with Santiago Ascacibar, Walter Kannemann, Fabri Bustos and Renzo Saravia.

The Argentine’s return to fitness will be a boost for the rest of the season and hopefully, he will get a few games for the club.

Tottenham have some injury concerns with Jan Vertonghen picking up a hamstring injury in our win over Huddersfield. The Belgian could be out till December and Mauricio Pochettino might have to rotate his team to ensure everyone stays fresh.

Tottenham’s next clash is against West Ham at London Stadium and it will be interesting to see who will play for the Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven.

Spurs lost their opening two games in their group and have to defeat the Dutch giants if we are to have any chance of making it to the knockout round.

Davinson Sanchez

Davinson Sanchez played for Colombia in their recent 4-2 win over the USA in an international friendly. The central defender has started eight games for Tottenham in all competitions this season and played against the likes of Barcelona and Inter Milan.

Colombia face Costa Rica in another friendly and Sanchez was in great spirits as he shared a few images of his team-mates in training.

The defender shared an image of Edwin Cardona and Matheus Uribe as Sanchez seemed to be dribbling the ball.

The 22-year-old also put up another picture of the entire Colombia squad from training. Stars such as Juan Cuadrado and Carlos Bacca were seen posing, and the team will look to pick up another win over Costa Rica in the coming days.

Sanchez had a decent World Cup with the national side but he has had some tough outings for Tottenham this season.

The Colombian played in our losses to Watford, Barcelona and Inter Milan and we need to buck up in the Champions League.

Our next two games are against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League group and we have to win those fixtures if we have any chance of making it to the knockout rounds.
