I’d like to say something witty and fun about this match, but I can’t. That was just pure, unadulterated misery from the opening kick. Tottenham Hotspur went to the Emirates with a chance to go 10 points ahead of their noisy North London neighbors and instead laid an egg, falling 2-1 to a Martin Ødegaard first half goal and an Alexandre Lacazette penalty. Oh, did I mention that Son Heung-Min also pulled up lame with what looked like a hamstring injury? That happened too.
At least Erik Lamela scored one of the best goals you’ll ever see. Before he got sent off. Yeah.
I don’t want to talk about it. 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.
