Tottenham player ratings: Bentaleb disappoints, Chadli outstanding

Tottenham beat Colchester 4-1 in the FA Cup this afternoon - here's how their players rated...

Michel Vorm 5 - didn't cover himself in glory during a rare start in place of Hugo Lloris, as he fumbled the ball in the first half and almost handled outside his area. Didn't have much chance with Colchester's goal.

Kieran Trippier 7 - continues his fine recent form with another strong display. Solid defensively, comfortable in possession and dangerous going forward, Trippier deserves his run in the side, and Kyle Walker has a real task on his hands to displace the ex-Burnley star.

Eric Dier 6 - a couple of shaky moments at the back, but effectively sealed the game with Tottenham's second goal, even though it was a deflected strike.

Kevim Wimmer 7 - today was the Austrian's big audition ahead of replacing the injured Jan Vertonghen in the Premier League, and he passed his test with some solid defending and flashed the ability to play the ball out from the back.

Ben Davies 6 - scored an own goal to hand Colchester a consolation goal in a solid if unspectacular performance from the Welsh international.

Nabil Bentaleb 5 - the Algerian international was handed a rare start, but didn't do himself any favours with a sloppy performance. Gave the ball away on a number of occasions and didn't seem to be up to speed, but that's to be expected for a young player lacking in match practice of late.

Tom Carroll 7 - swooped to add the fourth goal in a sound display. A couple of sloppy moments in the first half, but kept the ball well in the second period and then notched a well taken goal.

Nacer Chadli 9 - by far the man of the match. Impressed in a cameo against Crystal Palace last weekend, and built on that with two goals and an assist today. The Belgian also hit the crossbar with another effort in an influential performance.

Christian Eriksen 7 - bright performance from the Dane, and whilst he didn't notch any goals or assists, he performed well before being replaced by Joshua Onomah with 15 minutes left to play.

Erik Lamela 6 - hit the woodwork before being replaced for Mousa Dembele after half time. May not be in the starting line-up for Tottenham's next game after recent performances from Son Heung-min and Nacer Chadli.

Harry Kane 6 - quiet afternoon for Kane, who hit the side netting in the first half but was replaced for Son shortly after the hour mark. Today may have been a good time to give Kane a rest, but Pochettino chose to start him again today.


Mousa Dembele 6 - solid cameo for Dembele, who was rested today but should be back in Spurs' starting line-up against Norwich on Tuesday.

Son Heung-min 6 - a couple of bright, dangerous moments in a 25-minute performance, and will be hoping to play against Norwich.

Joshua Onomah - quiet role for Onomah with the game already wrapped up by the time he came off the bench.

Who do you think was Tottenham's man of the match this afternoon?
