Spurs player ratings vs Arsenal - Rose superb, Fazio has a stinker

Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen

Tottenham lost in the fourth round of the League Cup against rivals Arsenal, in a match that could only boast a handful of strong performances across the two teams.

Michel Vorm 5.5/10 - Should have done better with the shot from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, only to parry it straight to Matthieu Flamini. Made a good save later in the game, but the gulf between him and Lloris, both in terms of shot-stopping and the confidence he inspires in his team.

Kieran Trippier 6/10 - His set-pieces were poor, and his winger Oxlade-Chamberlain had an influential game. But he hit a tremendous cross field pass to pick out Nacer Chadli early in the second half for the equaliser.

Federico Fazio 4/10 - Absolutely failed to convince once again. Time after time the Argentine made mistakes. Was guilty of a poor pass that gifted Oxlade-Chamberlain a free run on goal. Stood off the England man to allow him to have a shot on goal before that, which led to the first goal as well. Let Giroud go in the second half for a good chance, and his passing was altogether woeful. Spurs fans turned on him as the made error after error, which will never help a player, but barring an injury crisis, it would be a big surprise to see him given another game after this performance.

Kevin Wimmer 6/10 - Better than Fazio, but was still part of a defence that looked suspect. Brought the forward ball well on once occasion.

Danny Rose 7.5/10 - Some typical strong forward runs, with the left back having most of the attacking moments in the first half. Challenges on Rose saw two Arsenal players booked, and he looked the side's best defender throughout the match.

Eric Dier 6/10 - Looked dominant in central midfield early on, but failed to stop Oxlade-Chamberlain as he got his shot off. Stronger once again in the second half.

Tom Carroll 5.5/10 - Unable to get much time on the ball, and the game seemed to pass him by. Flamini was opposite him on the pitch, and Carroll failed to get near the Frenchman for either goal.

Andros Townsend 6/10 - Showed plenty of aggression when he had the chance, but not many opportunities to display his attacking quality.

Nacer Chadli 6/10 - Popped up early on but slipped onto the periphery of proceedings for the rest of the opening period. Did well to force Calum Chambers to put the ball past his own keeper.

Christian Eriksen 6.5/10 - Wasn’t able to influence the game as much as he would have liked, but was one of the few that managed to get on the ball anywhere and look dangerous near the Gunners’ final third. His shooting was a little off.

Harry Kane 6/10 - Failed to hit a chance first time, instead taking too many touches. Looked unsurprisingly a little short of confidence but improved in the second half, and nearly scored with a sensational overhead kick that was cleared off the line. That goal'll come.


Heung-Min Son 5.5/10 - Unable to have the same affect from the bench as he demonstrated against Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Dele Alli 6/10 - An overzealous challenge saw him booked just after coming on, though he did offer some attacking support.

Clinton N'Jie N/A - Late substitute.
