Tottenham 3 Manchester United 0 Player Ratings


Tottenham ran riot against Manchester United in a 5-minute spell which saw Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela score three goals to put Manchester United’s Champions League to bed.

The win has kept Spurs in touching distance with league title as they now trail Leicester by 7 points who won their game against Sunderland 2-0 courtesy a brace from Jamie Vardy.

Meanwhile at White Hart Lane, United held their own until the 70th minute but an injury to Tim Fosu-Mensah disrupted their momentum and United could not stop Tottenham’s barrage of attacks since then.

There were some brilliant individual displays on the night and we recognize them in our Tottenham vs Manchester United player ratings feature which sees a young 18-year old leave a lasting impression at White Hart Lane.

Manchester United Player Ratings vs Spurs

De Gea (7.5) – Kept United in the game with 3 stunning saves.

Fosu-Mensah (8) – His injury saw United capitulate in to pieces, until he was on United had defended admirably.

Smalling (6) – Not his best night but kept his shape against Kane and Alli.

Blind (6.5) – He lost focus for Alli’s goal and was glued towards the ball rather than paying attention what was behind him, else he held his own.

Rojo (4.5) – No passion or commitment from the Argentine.

Schneiderlin (5) – He is no where near the player who was signed from Southampton, once again he failed to influence United on the night.

Carrick (5) – Time and age may have passed him to be in United’s midfield, he was poor.

Mata (5) – Tried his best but could not do anything from out wide which is not his natural position.

Lingard (4) – His stats read 0 shots on goal, 0 chance created, 0 take ons, 0 crosses.

Martial (6) – Tried his bit, should have scored when he cut past Spurs defense from the left wing.

Rashford (5) – Youngster found it tough breaking at Spurs defense.

Substitutes – Young (5), Darmian (4), Memphis (NA)
