You’d be hard pressed to say that this was a good match from Tottenham Hotspur (it wasn’t), but it certainly had its moments. West Ham went up 2-0 after on-loan striker Jesse Lingard fired home a curler past Lloris, but Spurs clawed their way back into the match off thanks to a Lucas Moura header of a corner kick and were unlucky not to get an equalizer after hitting the woodwork twice.
The result is bad — Spurs have taken 3 points from their last six matches — and the performance in the first 50 minutes was atrocious. However, Spurs looked pretty good for a decent chunk of the second half, even if they didn’t get any points to show for it. It’s the dimmest of silver linings, but we’re all groping for any light in the darkness at this point.
Let’s rate the players.
Rate the players from 1⁄2 to 5 stars. If the player doesn’t deserve a rating due to minutes played, DO NOT RANK. I will round the stars up/down to the nearest half-star for the player ratings later this week.
