Spurs player ratings: Wimmer takes his chance, striker problems clear, Alderweireld struggles

Tottenham Shirt

Tottenham drew 2-2 with Leicester City in the FA Cup today - here's how their players rated.

Michel Vorm 6 - could have done better with Shinji Okazaki's goal, but was generally assured in a rare start, though won't have done enough to displace Hugo Lloris.

Kieran Trippier 6 - offered support going forward but his crossing was inconsistent, and the pacey Demarai Gray gave him some trouble defensively.

Toby Alderweireld 5 - uncharacteristically poor. The Belgian not only lost Marcin Wasilewski for Leicester's equaliser, but was then turned inside out by Okazaki in the second half. Not quite as comfortable without Jan Vertonghen alongside him.

Kevin Wimmer 7 - having rarely featured this season, the Austrian international was impressive today. He read the game well, put in some strong tackles and wasn't afraid to play the ball out from the back. The chemistry with Alderweireld wasn't quite there yet, but that's largely down to being a bit-part player.

Danny Rose 7 - Nathan Dyer's inability to defend meant that Rose had a field day in the first half, rampaging up the left flank and causing danger every time.

Eric Dier 6 - a quiet display from Dier, who was substituted just past the hour mark. Kept possession ticking over well but not quite as dominant as we've seen him.

Tom Carroll 5 - some good passes but didn't really impact the game enough, and was lightweight in the tackle. Eventually substituted for Harry Kane as Tottenham went for an equaliser.

Christian Eriksen 7 - a little brighter after some poor recent displays, and took his goal very well, but his quality from set pieces has dropped off a little, and too often looked to play it safe on the edge of the box in the second half when Spurs needed a goal.

Josh Onomah 6 - flashed some ability on the ball and looks like a real prospect, but was maybe guilty of trying to do too much at times. At just 18, he has plenty of time to work on that.

Nacer Chadli 6 - the Belgian international produced a couple of mazy runs in the box which could have ended in goals, but his impact was far too fleeting before being taken off for Dele Alli.

Son Heung-min 6 - clearly not a centre forward. Worked hard and had a couple of moments of real quality, but better out wide. Once again showed that Spurs must buy a striker.


Nabil Bentaleb 7 - robust and keen to get stuck in after an extended period out of the team. Tested Kasper Schmeichel with a superb strike in an impressive cameo.

Dele Alli 6 - came on with around 20 minutes to play and didn't have too much of an impact, but his sheer presence on the pitch lifted the White Hart Lane crowd for a late rally.

Harry Kane 6 - Spurs couldn't really get the ball to him when he came on, but he bailed Tottenham out by dispatching his late penalty to earn a replay.
