Tottenham Bench and Coaching Ratings

Tottenham leveraged a bench full of superstars to pull away and win. Four regular starters came on in the second half and the game ended how Spurs wanted, with a big win.

Pierre Højbjerg – 7.5

Pierre Højbjerg and helped to change the game for Tottenham. Providing that extra layer of protection for Toby and Davinson that was not there in the first half, Højbjerg helped end any threat of a loss. The Dane was very active moving forward and even got an assist on Ndombele’s second goal, playing a wonderful one-two with the Frenchman. Not surprised he played 45 minutes as he wants to play every minute of every game and hard to argue with his results.

Harry Kane – 7 

Like Højbjerg, Harry Kane came on and changed the game. Whereas Vinicius spent a lot of the evening as a target farther up the pitch, Kane came on and was an outlet all over the attacking half. Unlucky to not score one maybe even two as he was played in and denied both times by Allsop. Kane came ready to play and it showed.

Heung-Min Son – 6

Heung-Min Son was a big part of the action that led to Spurs pulling away, but Son was also a big part of the action that almost let the game slip away. For the third straight game, Son had an opportunity to score and simply failed to hit the target. Once in on the left, he stepped over and then skidded his shot wide of the far post. On another occasion he had the ball played back to him about 10 yards out but skied the shot well over. Did provide the big assist to Ndombele to make it three, but should have scored.

Tanguy Ndombele – 8.5

Ndombele was the clear star of the game, helping create the game winner by playing in Kane, before Winks scored on the recycled possession. Did well to score two himself showing off his clinical nature around the net. Great to see such an impact in such a short time.

Joe Rodon – N/A

Joe Rodon came on for Ben Davies after Tottenham scored the third goal. Originally looked to be coming on for an attacker, but then replaced Davies after the Welshman went down and asked out. Did not have enough time to really impact that match.

José Mourinho – 8

Mourinho had the team lined up with enough talent from the off to win the game. Spurs knew the game would be difficult and José had the team ready. Maybe a bit unlucky not to pull away early, Mourinho made the difference with his changes. Each of his first four substitutes came on and impacted the game in a meaningful way. Seems to be getting his team into form.
