Spurs player ratings: Eriksen & Walker the biggest culprits after dire performance

Tottenham Hotspur Logo

Tottenham Hotspur lost 3-0 at Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. Here's how their players rated...

Hugo Lloris - 6/10

Beaten very easily for all three of Manchester United's goals. Can not be said to be the culprit for any of them but could have done better, looking a little shaky during Wayne Rooney's goal in particular.

Danny Rose - 4/10

England's best left-back? Perhaps Mauricio Pochettino has been watching the 24-year-old go forward this season. Defensively, he has been one of the division's worst - especially in the biggest games.

Eric Dier - 5/10

The centre-back had been a considerable upgrade on Federico Fazio in recent weeks but, unfortunately for Pochettino, Fazio is now back in contention for a starting spot, as Dier has produced one too many poor performances of late.

Jan Vertonghen - 5/10

Not much different can be said for Vertonghen except for the fact that, as the most experienced defender on the pitch for Spurs, the Belgian should really have showed a lot more leadership.

Kyle Walker - 4/10

A particular culprit for Tottenham at Manchester United, which has actually been the case for some weeks now. Walker needs some thinking time as his recent displays have simply not been up to scratch.

Ryan Mason - 5/10

Everyone who were undergoing England 'auditions' with Roy Hodgson in the stands seemed to fall flat for Spurs. Mason, in midfield, was no exception as United controlled the whole of the middle of the park.

Nabil Bentaleb - 5/10

Not for the first time this season, one of Tottenham's better players - not that that was saying much. But even the 20-year-old was not infallible, giving the ball away criminally for Manchester United's third and delivering one of his worst displays of the campaign.

Nacer Chadli - 5/10

Despite some positional changes from Pochettino during the game, his wingers just couldn't get into things.

Christian Eriksen - 4/10

The recipient of heavy criticism from Spurs fans after the defeat - and rightly so. However much the Tottenham midfielder is loved at White Hart Lane, he has gone very, very quiet in the last few weeks - when the north London side have needed him most.

Andros Townsend - 4/10

Was taken off after 30 minutes, with Pochettino citing tactical reasons...

Mousa Dembele - 5/10

Townsend's replacement, however, was little better.

Harry Kane - 5/10

The Tottenham striker, sadly, went missing against Manchester United, despite Jamie Carragher's claim there would be no specific way for Louis van Gaal's side to stop the 21-year-old.

Other substitutes

Erik Lamela replaced Mason in the second half, while Emmanuel Adebayor replaced Chadli late on. But, by then, the damage was done.
