Sergio Reguilon 6.5/10
Lively throughout, the Spaniard was a thorn in Leicester’s side all afternoon. He made a few good crosses and enjoyed a positive afternoon. Wish he is better on his right foot. He attempted numerous cutbacks onto his right boot, but was letdown with his final touch.
Oliver Skipp 7.5/10
Oliver Skipp played in a slightly more advanced role, just in front of Winks. He had a brilliant through ball to Lucas Moura, which ended up on Pierre Hojbjerg‘s foot. Had it not been for Marc Albrighton‘s intervention, Hojbjerg would have scored. Skipp made a couple of outstanding tackles while tracking back and full tilt. A few careless passes, though nothing too glaringly bad. His energy is a real asset to Tottenham’s first team.
Harry Winks 6.5/10
Well, what a mixed bag from Harry. Looked excellent at times as Spurs’ deepest of the three central midfielders. His deliveries from corner kicks were exquisite, consistently putting the Foxes under considerable pressure. His namesake, Mr. Kane, should have bagged an open header in the first half, which he banged forcefully, and frustratingly, off the bar. Then Winks lost possession in the final third in the second half, leading to an almost-deadly Foxes’ counter. Hugo came to the rescue.
Pierre Hojbjerg 7/10
Playing in a slightly more advanced role on the left side of centre, Pierre did a lot of things right. He knocked a few precise long balls in step for teammates and got in a great position to score in the first half. However, facing a gaping goal, he chose accuracy instead of pace, which was knocked off the line by Albrighton. Hojbjerg’s through ball to Doherty led directly to Tottenham’s equalizer. He then intercepted after kickoff and played a smart ball to Kane, which led to Bergwijn’s winner. Wow! The last five minutes of his performance propelled the Dane to a 7/10.
Also made a few careless passes to concede possession too easily.
Emerson Royal 3/10
The Brazilian endured a pretty miserable night and was withdrawn at halftime. Not sure if he picked up a knock. Regardless, Royal made no impact on the first half and coughed up possession needlessly, too.
