Tottenham 2-0 Brentford: Player ratings as Spurs book place in Carabao Cup final
Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-min both scored as Tottenham booked their place in the Carabao Cup final with a 2-0 win over Brentford
Spurs went ahead early on when Sissoko took advantage of some slack marking to head home Sergio Reguilon’s cross.
The hosts spurned several chances to double their lead and were almost made to pay for their wastefulness when Ivan Toney prodded home from a corner – only for the goal to be chalked off for offside.
Here are your Tottenham player ratings from north London…
Hugo Lloris (GK) – 7/10 – Forced into two saves, both of which he completed with minimal fuss. His clean sheet was saved by the width of Ivan Toney’s knee cap.
Serge Aurier (RB) – 7/10 – A few mad moments, but generally solid. Made three blocks.
Davinson Sanchez (CB) – 8/10 – Incredibly strong in the air, winning a team-high four aerial duels overall.
Eric Dier (CB) – 8/10 – Another solid display from Spurs’ ever-present. Tidy in possession and solid defensively, registering five clearances.
Sergio Reguilon (LB) – 8/10 – Delivery for the goal was absolutely superb. Provided a similar level of attacking intent all night.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) – 8/10 – Really impressive display. His ability to regain possession was incredible. Overall, he completed five tackles and two interceptions.
Moussa Sissoko (CM) – 8/10 – Beautifully guided his header into the back of the net. Also showed great industry.
Tanguy Ndombele (CM) – 7/10 – Assisted Son’s goal with a clever pass. Was pretty dangerous throughout, causing problems with his dribbling. Denied a goal of his own by the width of the post.
Lucas Moura (RW) – 6/10 – Had a quiet game. Struggled to get in on the action and was kept busy defensively by Rico Henry.
Harry Kane (ST) – 6/10 – Not his most influential game going forward but he did well to help out defensively when required. Missed a decent chance to make it 3-0.
Heung-min Son (LW) – 8/10 – Decided the game with a devastating goal. His importance to this Spurs side cannot be overstated.
