Tottenham Hotspur player ratings v Fiorentina: Ryan Mason stars

We look at the heroes and the villains on a night when Spurs cruised into the last 16 of the Europa League.

Ryan Mason starred as Tottenham Hotspur thumped Fiorentina 3-0 at White Hart Lane to move into the last 16 of the Europa League with a 4-1 aggregate win.

Nacer Chadli's goal in Florence meant that Spurs were already ahead on away goals prior to kick off, but Mason added some insurance with a crisp finish to secure a 1-0 half-time lead.

After the break, the ball broke kindly for Erik Lamela on 63 minutes as the Argentine stroked home a second, before Gonzalo Rodriguez's own goal in the final quarter sealed the hosts' passage.


Hugo Lloris 6 - The Frenchman had very little to do throughout, with the exception of the occasional standard save.

Kieran Trippier 8 - Had lots to do due to the adventurous Marcos Alonso at left-back, but the ex-Burnley man did extremely well at both ends. His excellent cross also led to the Lilywhites' third of the night.

Kevin Wimmer 7 - Had to walk a disciplinary tightrope after being booked within 17 minutes, but he did well to stay off the referee's radar after that.

Toby Alderweireld 7 - Continues to impress alongside Wimmer at the heart of Spurs' defence, and he never looked overly troubled by anything that came his way this evening.

Ben Davies 6 - Did very little wrong defensively, but could have perhaps been a little more adventurous going forward.

Eric Dier 7 - Brilliant in both boxes and everywhere in between, with the exception of one or two loose passes.

Ryan Mason 8 - Opened the scoring with a fantastic finish that the absent Harry Kane would have been proud of, before returning to a more reserved, yet still very effective, role. Just edges Man of the Match over Alli.

Christian Eriksen 4 - More or less a spectator for 90 minutes as the Dane watched the game pass him by from right wing.

Dele Alli 7.5 - The all-action midfielder was superb for some 77 minutes, but a moment of stupidity saw him suspended for the first leg of the last 16 after picking up a needless yellow card for simulation. It could well be costly.

Erik Lamela 6 - Curled home a decent second goal from six yards, but it papered over an otherwise ordinary performance from the Argentine, whose set-piece delivery let him and Spurs down all night.

Nacer Chadli 5 - With Kane out injured, Chadli was given an unfamiliar striking role - and it showed. He was isolated for virtually the entire first half through a glaring lack of nous in that position. Slightly improved after the break - and had a well-taken goal chalked off for offside - but Mauricio Pochettino won't rush to use him there again.
