Lo Celso stars with 7.5/10 – Tottenham player ratings from the 1-1 draw vs Burnley



Burnley 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Tottenham player ratings

Tottenham Hotspur were put to the test at Turf Moor against Sean Dyche’s Burnley. The Clarets proved to be up for the task as they further inflicted misery in our chase for the top four.

The Clarets started off as the better team and took the lead in the 13th minute when Chris Wood bundled in the ball after Hugo Lloris had fumbled Jay Rodriguez’s shot.

A number of tweaks and substitutions made by Jose Mourinho worked as Giovani Lo Celso immediately put through Erik Lamela, who won a penalty for Spurs. Dele Alli stepped up to score calmly to bring Tottenham level.

Lo Celso was at the centre of things as we chased a winner. However, it was not to be as we had to withstand a Burnley barrage at the end to share the spoils.

We are now four points off Chelsea in fourth who have a game in hand. Let’s take a look at how the Spurs players performed

Hugo Lloris (5/10)

The Spurs captain returned after missing the last two matches due to injury. He should have done better to hold on to Rodriguez’s shot before Wood turned it in to give Burnley the lead. He did well late in the game to deny Matej Vydra as Spurs eventually clung on for the point.

Toby Alderweireld (6/10)

Had to withstand a constant barrage of balls launched up to his penalty area. He could not react quickly enough to prevent Wood from taking advantage of Lloris’ error. The Belgian did, however, make a number of important interceptions as Burnley looked for a second.

Eric Dier (7/10)

Another impressive performance by the Englishman. He was under a lot of pressure from the Clarets’ frontman and gave away the ball that led to Burnley’s opener.

He was moved into midfield as Mourinho tinkered with the formation and continued to get stuck in against a combative midfield. He forced a block late on against Vydra’s shot to deny the Czech international the winner.

Davinson Sanchez (4/10)

A poor outing by the Colombian. Struggled massively against Burnley’s aerial barrage and could not cope with the Clarets frontmen. Also picked up a yellow for his troubles.

Jan Vertonghen (5/10)

Struggled at left wing-back and his lack of pace only made it worse. Was much better after Tottenham reverted to a back four.

Japhet Tanganga (4/10)

A dire performance from the youngster as he failed to provide cover defensively and had no joy attacking. Improved after the break but failed to properly contain Dwight McNeil.

Tanguy Ndombele (4/10)

Another disappointing outing for the club’s record signing. He failed to influence anything of worth and was crowded out by Burnley every time he got the ball. Taken off at half-time as Mourinho instituted changes in both formation and personnel.

Oliver Skipp (4/10)

After an impressive showing against Norwich, the youngster provided a performance at the other end of the spectrum. Was taken off at halftime along with Ndombele as Mourinho looked for ways to get his side back in the game.

Steven Bergwijn (5/10)

Failed to impress in the first half with a performance not lacking in effort or hunger but rather in effect. Improved after the break and made a number of direct runs at the Burnley defence. He appeared to be injured, which could see Lucas Moura swap with him in the starting XI against Leipzig.

Erik Lamela (7/10)

Tottenham’s best player in the first half. Lamela never stopped working or running even when Spurs were being outplayed. He won the penalty in the second half after he was brought down by Ben Mee. Was booked in the first half for a rash tackle.

Dele Alli (7/10)

A selfless performance by the 23-year-old who did everything the team needed him to. Worked his socks off and also stepped up calmly to score from the penalty spot in the second half.


Giovani Lo Celso (7.5/10)

Immediately changed the game after coming on for Skipp. It was his pass to Lamela that led to Tottenham’s penalty as he made an instant impact. Became the creative force in the middle and drove his side in search of a winner.

Serge Aurier (5/10)

Came on late and did not do much to warrant a mention.

Lucas Moura (6.5/10)

Came on for Ndombele at half-time and made a number of  good runs.
