Spurs dropped two points after Jeffrey Schlupp scored a late equaliser, as Hugo Lloris spilled the ball from a Crystal Palace free-kick. Spurs took the lead in the first half after Harry Kane’s long-range effort deceived Vincente Guaita. However, the Spanish goalkeeper made up for his mistake with many stunning saves to keep Spurs at bay. Jose Mourinho will be disappointed with his side’s performance and result, with the North London side heading to champions Liverpool on Wednesday.
Jose Mourinho 5 – Mourinho hasn’t made too many mistakes this season, but today he made a few. The Portuguese allowed his side to sit way too deep throughout the second half and only reacted with changes once Schlupp had equalised.
Hugo Lloris 4 – The French goalkeeper made a couple of smart saves in the first half, but ultimately cost Spurs the goal that made them drop points. The Spurs captain should have caught Eberechi Eze’s free kick, instead spilling the ball straight to Schlupp.Embed from Getty Images
Serge Aurier 5 – The Ivorian battled hard to stop Zaha getting too much joy down his side, but he gave away a needless foul that led to the equaliser and should have done better. The right back could have produced better deliveries from the numerous crossing opportunities he had.
Toby Alderweireld 7 – The Belgian defender did brilliantly against fellow countryman Christian Benteke to win numerous aerial duels. The centre-half didn’t make many mistakes and couldn’t have done anything about the goal.
Eric Dier 7 – Like his defensive partner Alderweireld, Dier didn’t do too much wrong and dealt with the threat of Benteke and Wilfried Zaha very well. Again, the goal was not his fault and he should have scored an injury-time free kick if it wasn’t for a brilliant fingertip save by Guaita.Embed from Getty Images
Sergio Reguilon 5 – Reguilon has been very impressive this season, but today wasn’t one of his better performances for Spurs. The Spanish defender gave the ball away too easily and didn’t make the most of the space he had down the left hand side.Embed from Getty Images
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 6 – The Danish midfielder produced another consistent performance and was everywhere on the pitch, especially throughout the first half. However, he didn’t gain control of the midfield in the second half and Palace dominated the half.Embed from Getty Images
Moussa Sissoko 4 – Sissoko produced an unusually poor performance in midfield and was dominated by the Palace midfielders, particularly in the second half. Sissoko also found it difficult to cope with the trickery of Zaha and escaped a second yellow a few times.
Tanguy Ndombele 6 – The French midfielder produced some brilliant pieces of skill throughout the game, including a scrumptious rabona pass in the second half. Crystal Palace couldn’t cope with him and Spurs lost a lot of control when he came off for Giovani Lo Celso.
Steven Bergwijn 3 – The Dutch forward has worked his way back into the side with his defensive work in the three matches against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal but he was extremely poor today. Bergwijn was wasteful on the ball and made no impact going forward.Embed from Getty Images
Heung-Min Son 5 – The South Korean was lively throughout the first half and made some brilliant runs to trouble the Palace defence; Son also assisted Kane’s opener. However, the winger played poorly in the second half and rarely touched the ball.
Harry Kane 6 – The England captain scored Spurs’ only goal with a swerving long-range strike and produced a number of fine saves from Guaita. However, just like the whole Spurs team, Kane wasn’t able to really impact the game in the second half.Embed from Getty Images
Giovani Lo Celso 5 – The Argentine battled hard and produced a brilliant free kick to set up Dier, who should have done better. However, the midfielder didn’t create too much in midfield for Spurs.
