Christian Eriksen saves Tottenham: Player ratings from 1-0 win over Inter Milan



Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min of Tottenham

Tottenham pulled another rabbit out of the bag with their 1-0 win over Inter Milan in the Champions League.

The win put us above the Italians in the group, and Champions League progress is in our hands as long as we match Inter’s result on the final match day.

Christian Eriksen got the only goal of the game in the second half, after coming on as a sub. Tottenham had a few chances to score but couldn’t get the better of Samir Handanovic in the Inter goal.

Our last game of the group is at the Nou Camp against Barcelona, but the Catalans have already qualified for the knockout round.

Tottenham had a few heroes on the pitch at Wembley, and here are the player ratings from the game.

Hugo Lloris – 7/10

The captain had a couple of quality saves late on in the game, but apart from that, the Frenchman was not troubled much.

Serge Aurier – 7/10

This was another stellar game for the Ivorian as he defended well and sent Moussa Sissoko through for our late winner.

Toby Alderweireld – 7/10

The Belgian had a normal outing at the back and picked up a booking for tripping Mauro Icardi to stop an attack.

Jan Vertonghen – 7.5/10

Its great to have Vertonghen back from his long injury lay-off, and the Belgian picked up right where he left off with a quality display.

Ben Davies – 6.5/10

The Welshman looked good at the back but his output in the final third should be better as some of his crosses were misplaced.

Moussa Sissoko Tottenham

Moussa Sissoko – 8/10

The midfielder had another quality game for Tottenham. He protected the backline well and played a huge role in Eriksen’s goal.

Harry Winks – 7.5/10

Winks controlled the tempo well in the middle of the pitch and even saw an effort come off the crossbar with a sweet strike.

Lucas Moura – 6.5/10

Moura ran a lot on the pitch and had one chance to score but shot straight at the Inter keeper.

Dele Alli – 7/10

The Englishman didn’t have many quality moments in the game, but he provided the decisive pass as he turned to give the ball to Eriksen.

Erik Lamela – 5/10

Lamela was lucky not to get a red card for a horror challenge on Marcelo Brozovic, and his decision making wasn’t great in the final third too.

Harry Kane Tottenham

Harry Kane – 7/10

Kane didn’t get on the scoresheet but he made life difficult for the Inter defence early on with some of his runs.


Song Heung-min – 7/10

The South Korean replaced Moura and seemed to provide Spurs with a greater attacking threat.

Christian Eriksen – 8/10

Eriksen got the all-important winner for Spurs and had a great impact coming off the bench.

Tottenham receive game-changing Champions League boost thanks to this Serie A result



Latest Spurs news: Tottenham move into Champions League Pot 2 thanks to Serie A results

Tottenham have been handed a boost in the upcoming Champions League season as with a spot in Pot 2, according to

The report claims that AS Roma’s failure to finish in the Champions League places on the last day of the Serie A campaign helped Spurs achieve the place in the Pots.

Roma won their final game of the season but that was cancelled out by wins for Atalanta and AC Milan, with the latter pair finishing third and fourth respectively.

The Rome side would have been placed above us in the Pots had they made it into the Champions League. Roma have a better coefficient than us (h/t and also reached the semi-finals of the competition last season.

Spurs’ group could be easier next time

Moving into Pot 2 should give us a relatively easier group than the last two seasons.

Tottenham have been placed in tough groups which have included Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund in the previous two campaigns.

We have proved our mettle in Europe by making it out of the tough groups, and this season has been incredible thanks to our run to the final.

The report adds that Tottenham could also move to Pot 1 of the Champions League as a place is reserved for the winners.

“I’ve just got a feeling” – Former Tottenham manager believes Spurs have their name on Champions League crown



Latest Spurs news: Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham have their name on Champions League trophy

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes that Spurs have their name on the Champions League trophy.

Spurs face Liverpool in the final on 1 June, and the Reds are slight favourites given than they beat us twice in the Premier League this season.

However, Tottenham’s Champions League campaign has been crazy. There have been late goals in several games and we produced an epic comeback to defeat Ajax in Amsterdam 3-2 to reach the final.

Redknapp also spoke about the fantastic games we have had this season as he believes Spurs will win the Champions League (h/t Daily Mail):

“You just get the feeling that Tottenham have got their name on the trophy.

“They’ve gone through when they looked like going out in the knockout stages, last-minute goals in other games got them through.”

Redknapp expects a great game

Liverpool have a great attacking trio but Redknapp believes that a fit Harry Kane can create problems with the other players we have in the attack.

Son Heung-min has been excellent in recent weeks while Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick in the win over Ajax.

The Englishman did not believe the final would be a dull game due to the attacking nature of both teams.

Tottenham might have finished way behind Liverpool in the league table but nothing can be taken for granted in a final.

Spurs have the quality to defeat Liverpool and should we have a fit Kane back for the final, Mauricio Pochettino might be celebrating his first trophy at Spurs.

Tottenham asked to stump out £20m to sign this 18-year-old rising Championship star



Spurs transfer news: Leeds United want £20m for English winger Jack Clarke

The Sunday People (h/t Daily Star) reports that Leeds United want £20m for 19-year-old winger Jack Clarke.

The teen had a great season for Leeds after breaking into the side, but the team had to deal with disappointment as they missed out on Premier League promotion.

Jack Clarke

Leeds failed to reach the final of the play-offs, and the report claims that Tottenham are interested in the 19-year-old Clarke.

The report adds that the player falls into Tottenham’s transfer strategy of signing quality young English talent.

Clarke was also named as Leeds’ Young Player of the Season despite only making four starts in the Championship.

The 19-year-old made 25 appearances in all competitions under Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds will be hurting post their failure to reach the Premier League.

Pochettino to use his links with Bielsa?

Mauricio Pochettino has a great relationship with the Leeds manager and that could work in our favour as we look to make some signings in the summer.

Pochettino has done well with young players throughout his career and we could do with some a winger joining us in the transfer window.

Erik Lamela has spent a lot of time injured this season while we could use some cover for Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura.

Clarke isn’t the finished article yet and could improve further under someone like Pochettino.

Latest Spurs news: Mauricio Pochettino hints at staying at Tottenham beyond the Champions League final

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has hinted at staying at the club beyond the Champions League final.

The Wanda Metropolitano hosts the Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool on 1 June, and the manager claimed he could quit the club if Spurs lifted the title (h/t Mirror).

However, the Argentine dropped a major hint of staying beyond the final as he spoke about the next chapter post the Champions League (h/t Mirror).

“There were two different feelings mixed in the same moment after the semi-final.

“Reaching the Champions League final is the end of an amazing chapter for the club. But, at the same time, the moment you reach the final, it’s like, ‘I want to be involved in the next chapter of the club’.”

Spurs need to take the next step

Pochettino has done an excellent job so far since joining from Southampton, but our spending in recent seasons has not matched that of the top teams in the Premier League.

Spurs didn’t sign a single player in two windows, yet we are set to play our biggest European game in decades.

Tottenham have to spend in the summer and strengthen a side that has seen several injuries hit them this season.

It is difficult to imagine any other manager doing as great a job in a similar condition as Pochettino has, and we have to keep the Argentine for the coming years.
