Spurs v West Ham ratings: Winks catches eye; Nordtveit disaster

Date published: Saturday 19th November 2016 7:53

TEAMtalk assesses the frantic London derby where Spurs struck late in the 3-2 win against West Ham, with debutant Harry Winks impressing.


HUGO LLORIS: Had very little to do other than pick the ball out of the net on two occasions 5

KYLE WALKER: Usual hot-and-cold performance. The more time he has on the ball, the more clumsier he gets 5.5

ERIC DIER: Caused problems for the West Ham back-line with the long diagonal ball and was denied by a fine save from Darren Randolph 6

JAN VERTONGHEN: Executed a fantastic last-ditch tackle on Dimitri Payet as part of a solid display 6

DANNY ROSE: Had the difficult task of trying to thwart Michail Antonio and performed well for the most part 6.5

VICTOR WANYAMA: Pochettino stated before the game the importance of winning the ball back quickly and the Kenyan played a huge part in that 6.5

MOUSA DEMBELE: Passed a late fitness test and Tottenham fans will be relieved he did. Another strong performance alongside Wanyama6.5

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN: Saw an early goal ruled out for offside, but was one of Tottenham’s quieter performers on the evening 6

HARRY WINKS: First Premier League start and did not look out of place whatsoever. Neat and tidy on the ball, got into some promising positions and rewarded with a goal 8

VINCENT JANSSEN: Posed little goal threat but does continue to make clever runs, show good strength against defenders and has an impressive work-rate. Let himself down by giving away a sloppy penalty 5.5

HARRY KANE: Unable to get heavily involved throughout but once again proved to be Tottenham’s match-winner 7


DELE ALLI (replaced Janssen 68′) Helped give Tottenham a new lease of life before the end 6

SON HEUNG-MIN (replaced Dembele 72′) An excellent cameo performance, supplying the cross for the equaliser and winning the penalty that gave Tottenham all three points 7.5

KIERAN TRIPPER(replaced Walker 89′) Very late sub N/A

Manuel Lanzini: Scores from the spot


DARREN RANDOLPH: Picked in favour of Adrian and put in a mixed display. His fine save from Dier undone by a weak touch on Son’s cross 6

MICHAIL ANTONIO: A constant threat down the right-hand side and gambled excellently for his sixth headed goal of the season 7.5

ANGELO OGBONNA: Largely overshadowed by his two central defensive partners but played a minor role in a big win for the Hammers 6

WINSTON REID: Provided the cross-cum-shot for Antonio’s header and eased the pressure on his defence with some vital headers away before being shown a very late second yellow. Not to blame for West Ham’s downfall 7.5

CHEIKHOU KOUYATE: A busy evening for West Ham’s third centre-back. Hit the crossbar from a Dimitri Payet corner and was kept on his toes throughout by one of Rose, Winks or Kane 7

AARON CRESSWELL: Was the less ineffective of West Ham’s two rampaging wing-backs 6

PEDRO OBIANG: Went quietly about his business as Manuel Lanzini took centre stage 6

MANUEL LANZINI: An all-action performance from the Argentine, winning the ball back on countless occasions and sparking attacks with quick bursts past his man. Nailed his penalty kick 7.5

DIMITRI PAYET: Slowly grew into the game but we only saw the very occasional flash of the Frenchman’s quality 6

ANDRE AYEW: Had little impact and was brought off after an hour 5

DIAFRA SAKHO: First appearance of the season for the Hammers but was busiest inside his own penalty area with headed clearances away 5.5


SIMONE ZAZA (replaced Sakho 60′) Questionable decision-making and struggled to get up to speed with the game 5

EDMILISON FERNANDES (replaced Ayew 60′) Looked to have brought some added protection but was ultimately on the losing side 5.5

HAVARD NORDTVEIT (replaced Payet 85′) Was supposed to help shore West Ham up but gave a very cheap and very costly penalty at the death 4
