Ben Davies 7/10
Ben Davies played well before leaving prematurely with a muscle injury. Tottenham will feel the impact of Davies’ absence. He has enjoyed a solid season, especially at left wingback. The Welshman does a lot of thankless, unheralded, yet necessary work.
Oliver Skipp 5/10
Oliver Skipp endured a bit of a up-and-down match. He coughed up possession twice in dangerous areas but also made some timely and pivotal tackles.
Skipp had four tackles, one interception, one blocked shot, and one clearance.
Skipp was unable to stay with Sekou Mara, who spun and beat the Spurs midfielder with sheer change of pace. Skipp has Forster to thank for saving his blushes on that occasion. However, the Englishman wasn’t able to win the header on Southampton’s second, another blight on his day.
Pierre Hojbjerg 4/10
There’s very little to say about Pierre Hojbjerg’s performance, which against a team in the relegation dogfight isn’t particularly encouraging. He endured a shocking outing that was covered up slightly by Spurs victory.
Pedro Porro 8/10
Pedro Porro had three attempts in the first half, the third lashing into the top netting for Tottenham’s opening goal. It was Tottenham’s most recent signing’s first goal in a Tottenham shirt. While he lashed the first two over the bar, Porro was lively throughout and is supremely confident in possession.
