Tottenham attacker ratings
Ryan Mason went with the same attacking quartet that he used at Aston Villa, with Dele Alli and Steven Bergwijn joining Kane and Heung-Min Son. Bergwijn and Son together provide the most flexibility on the outside as both are comfortable on either side. So how did they do?
Heung-Min Son – 7
Heung-Min Son continues to start for Tottenham although he clearly continues to be off form. Sonny is one of several players whose touch continues to fail him again and again. Son had a wonderful chance in the box all alone from a little Dele chip but his first touch was awful and the opportunity vanished. In the second half it was his corner Schmeichel misplayed for the tying goal. Sonny also forced a big kick-save from the Danish keeper and finally put in some big crosses. An up and down afternoon.
Harry Kane – 7.5
Harry Kane did what Harry Kane does, he scored against Leicester City. Tottenham had gone 40+ minutes without a shot on target. However, a fortuitous block left a floating ball in the box for Kane who side volleyed the ball past Kasper Schmeichel. Before the goal, Kane had been relatively anonymous but the goal helped make up for that. In the second half, Kane was looking to push and stayed higher up the pitch giving the defense something to think about. He was not able to get his shot off on a couple of chances but had a nice playback to Gareth Bale for another assist on the game-winner. Kane wins Golden Boot and led the league in assists with his last guaranteeing Tottenham Europe next season. If it was his last game, it was job done here.
Steven Bergwijn – 6.5
Steven Bergwijn was a willing runner and looked up for some real pressing in the first half. Ultimately, the Dutchman never really got going on the afternoon and failed to replicate the impact he had the previous match against Aston Villa. The next coach is really going to want to tap into Bergwijn moving forward.
