Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Chelsea: Tottenham Player Ratings

It was a nightmare return to Stamford Bridge as Jose Mourinho slumped to a third straight defeat against a Frank Lampard Team.

Oliver Giroud and Marcos Alonso put Chelsea 2-0 ahead before Erik Lamela came off the bench to halve the Blues’ advantage. It was the closest Spurs went to scoring after Davinson Sanchez’s first-half header that was saved by Willy Caballero. Lamela’s intervention came too little too late as Mourinho’s charges succumbed 2-1 to his former side.

It was a disappointing night for Tottenham as they failed to create much up front and looked abject in midfield. Sanchez and Lamela are the only players to come out of this with credit while Lucas Moura’s effort cannot go unnoticed.

Giovani Lo Celso was lucky not to be sent off following a bad challenge on Cesar Azpilicueta. The result leaves Tottenham four points adrift of their opponents in the chase for the final Champions League spot. We take a look at how the players performed on a forgetful night at Stamford Bridge.

Tottenham Player Ratings

Hugo Lloris (6/10)

Could have been beaten four times but thankfully saw two of the attempts come off the post. The French captain was beaten at the near post for the first while the second came from some way off. Did make a number of good saves against Tammy Abraham, Ross Barkley and Mason Mount to keep the scoreline respectable.

Japhet Tanganga (5/10)

A nervous performance by the youngster. Was nowhere to be seen for the second goal and should have done a better job closing down Alonso. One of his worst performances of late should be a learning curve for the 19-year-old.

Toby Alderweireld (4.5/10)

Not a game to remember for the Belgian. He was beaten too easily in the buildup to the first goal and struggled to impose himself against Giroud. Couldn’t bring the ball out of defence much and was largely wasteful.

Davinson Sanchez (7/10)

Tottenham’s best defender on the night. He went close at the other end as he forced a good save from Willy Caballero from a corner. Used his pace and strength well and did admirably to cover for his teammates.

Jan Vertonghen (4/10)

His lack of pace was an issue and struggled against Mason Mount. Slow on the turn as he was slow to recover to being passed. Another forgetful performance for the Spurs veteran.

Ben Davies (4/10)

Tough on the defender to play another 90 minutes following his recent return from injury. Was ineffective in attack and defence and looked tired as the game went on.

Harry Winks (5/10)

Struggled to keep the ball and was guilty of making careless passes. He showed the courage to battle but was regularly swamped by blue shirts.

Tanguy Ndombele (4/10)

A lot of running down dark alleys and falling over at the slightest contact. Largely a passenger as he failed to show any sort of presence in the Spurs midfield. Mercifully taken off at the hour mark for the more impressive Lamela.

Lo Celso Player Ratings

Giovani Lo Celso was lucky to stay on the pitch after a bad tackle on Azpilicueta

Giovani Lo Celso (3/10)

Looked a shell of himself as he struggled to impose himself in a wide role. He looked more comfortable drifting inside but failed to create anything of note. Extremely lucky to not get his marching orders after an awful tackle on Cesar Azpilicueta.

Steven Bergwijn (5/10)

The Dutchman’s worst performance in a Spurs shirt. Never really got going and in all fairness, spent large parts of the game isolated upfront.

Lucas Moura (5.5/10)

A thankless performance by the Brazilian. Was isolated up front and had to feed off scraps or run into blind alleys. To his credit, he showed his willingness to do so. Could have done with better service.

Substitutes

Erik Lamela (6.5/10)

Came on at the hour mark for the ineffective Ndombele. Showed intent and gave Tottenham hope late on after a purposeful run into the box.

Dele Alli (4/10)

The English midfielder struck a blank once again as he failed to impact the game whatsoever.

Serge Aurier (5/10)

Came on too late and struggled to create any impact.
