Tottenham 2 Arsenal 2 Player Ratings: Lost opportunities for London rivals

Let us all take a breather from a high-octane battle at White Hart Lane, which saw the game swing one way then the other. In the end, a 2-2 result was justified seeing how both the teams came back from adverse situations.

Arsenal took the lead, then were pegged back by Francis Coquelin’s red card which saw Spurs go 2-1 up. From that point on, season looked like dead and buried for Arsenal, but somehow they found the character to claw their way back though Alexis Sanchez’s goal and end the game on level terms.

On the wake of an extraordinary North London Derby, we analyze all the individual performances on the night in our Tottenham vs Arsenal Player Ratings.

Tottenham Player Ratings vs Arsenal

Tottenham 2 Arsenal 2 Player RatingsLloris (6.5) – Made two stunning saves to keep out Alexis and earn a draw for his team.

Walker (5.5) – Kept running up & down throughout, but service was awful.

Wimmer (7) – What a tackle it was from him in the dying moments of the game to deny Ramsey and secure a vital point for his side.

Alderweireld (7) – Belgian scored an important goal and was rock solid at the back.

Rose (6.5) – One of the best players on the night, his energy was breathtaking.

Dier (6.5) – Another monstrous performance from the little man, however, he was lucky to stay on for the 90 mins. His foul on Giroud deserved a second yellow card.

Dembele (6) – Strong presence throughout the game, passing was to the mark.

Lamela (6) – Was vital in build up to the second goal, he has been the most improved player under Pochettino.

Alli (6.5) – Big performance tonight, always relaxed on the ball, creativity at its best and he kept the ball alive for Kane’s wonder strike.

Erisken (6.5) – Call me biased, but I love this guy’s playing style, tenaciousness combined with brilliance, however, could have done a bit more.

Kane (6.5) – Scored a wonder goal, but apart from that, he was rather wasteful on the night.

Substitutes – Mason (6), Davies (NA), Son (NA)

Arsenal Player Ratings vs Tottenham 

Tottenham 2 Arsenal 2 Player RatingsOspina (7.5) – Did himself and his fans a world of good with two stunning saves from Lamela & Kane.

Bellerin (7) – He went in to Ozil mode tonight, had both the assists tonight and was a constant outlet for his attackers.

Mertesacker (5) – Not a convincing display from the German, despite being a German, lacks composure on the ball.

Gabriel (6.5) – The only player who played with fire, passion and aggression, however, came very close to scoring a late own goal.

Gibbs (6) – Came in for Monreal and kept Walker and Lamela in check for most part of the game.

Coquelin (4) – What on earth he was thinking making that silly tackle and almost cost his team the match.

Elneny (6) – Played well on his league debut and will be a candidate to start vs Barcelona.

Ramsey (6) – It was good that he scored the goal, or else, he had another twitter barrage coming his way. His cute touches were ill-timed and ill-placed.

Ozil (5) – Went missing on a big game again.

Alexis (6) – Like Ramsey, it was good that he scored, another poor performance from the Chilean.

Welbeck (7) – He kept trying till the end, his pace, energy and desire was worth applauding.

Substitutes – Giroud (5), Flamini (NA), Campbell (NA)
