Lucas Moura TEAMtalk

A closer look at how Tottenham’s players fared in Wednesday night’s amazing 3-2 win over Ajax in the Champions League semi-final, second leg.

Two-nil down at half-time Spurs looked down and out but Lucas Moura’s second-half hat-trick sent Tottenham to the Champions League final with Liverpool.

Tottenham player ratings:

Hugo Lloris: Made a few timely second-half interventions. No chance with the goals.

Kieran Tripper: Couldn’t get near De Ligt for the first and to blame for Ajax’s second goal after claiming to be fouled. Much improved second-half. 6

Danny Rose: Solid display and in a running battle with Hakim Ziyech, which saw him booked and subbed on 82 mins. 7

Jan Vertonghen: Blocked off as De Ligt headed in the opener, but grew in stature and hit the bar with a late header. 8

Toby Alderweireld: Glanced a chance from a corner wide and impressed on his return to Ajax. 8

Victor Wanyama: Gave away possession too often and looked out of his depth. Hooked at half-time. 5

Moussa Sissoko: Strong second-half showing, driving Spurs on. 8

Christian Eriksen: Fired a good first-half chance at the keeper. Set-pieces were poor all night and never stepped up. 5

Deli Alli: Wasted a couple of good chances, but laid on Lucas’ first goal and was a threat all night. 8

Lucas Moura: Lashed a volley wide, but his powerful running earned him a goal and his smart turn was class for the second and his third took the breath away. 9

Son Heung-min: Missed an awkward first-half chance and was strangely off colour. 6


Fernando Llorente: A focal point in the second-half and helped Spurs’ revival with great hold-up play. 8

Erik Lamela: Failed to make an impact in his 10 mins.

Ben Davies: Had just eight minutes to impress.
