Spurs v CSKA Moscow player ratings

Tottenham came from behind to beat CSKA Moscow 3-1 in their final Champions League game of the season and end their recent Wembley hoodoo. Here’s how we rated the Spurs players.

Hugo Lloris: 7

A fairly uneventful night for the goalkeeper, although he saved well from Georgi Milanov, and was left little chance for CSKA Moscow’s opening goal.

Kyle Walker: 8

Bright throughout and was strong defensively, both on the ground and in the air. Got forward well, particularly in the second half, putting in some good crosses.

Eric Dier: 6

Recovered from an early clash with 6ft 8in striker Lacina Traore but will have been disappointed with his part in CSKA’s goal as Alan Dzagoev drifted past him. Moved into midfield when Toby Alderweireld came on.

Jan Vertonghen: 7

Beaten by Zoran Tosic in build-up to Dzagoev’s goal but otherwise was excellent in the air and barely wasted the ball in possession.

Danny Rose: 8

Got up and down the left flank well and laid on the second goal for Harry Kane with an expertly weighted cross.

Victor Wanyama: 6

Kept things simple on the ball but was occasionally overzealous in the tackle. Replaced on 68 minutes by the returning Alderweireld.

Harry Winks: 8

Only his second Champions League start and his first at Wembley. Made 113 passes – more than CSKA’s five-man midfield did managed between them – and only five failed to find a team-mate.

Christian Eriksen: 9

Inventive with his passing all evening, he had already laid on two chances for Dele Alli before the midfielder converted Eriksen’s cross to equalise. He also began the build-up to the second goal, but wasted a good chance to score himself early on.

Dele Alli: 8

Struck the equaliser – having missed two easier chances – and then saw his header inadvertently turned into his own net by CSKA goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev to make it 3-1.

Son Heung-min: 7

Demonstrated his pace in the 62 minutes he was on the field and tested Akinfeev with an early shot. Replaced by Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.

Harry Kane: 8

Seven shots on goal, four of them on target, including the goal that put Spurs 2-1 up, from an inviting Rose cross. Laid on the third with a delivery of his own and linked up well with Eriksen.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou: 7

Bright when he came on, and almost had an assist when his cross was headed just off target by Alderweireld.

Toby Alderweireld: 7

After 53 days on the sidelines, the centre-back made his return to a rapturous reception – and came close to marking it with a goal.
