Spurs ratings: Richarlison kickstarts season but Sanchez the villain

After a 1-1 draw at Craven Cottage, Tottenham lost 5-3 to Fulham on penalties to lose the Carabao Cup.

The lone shooter to miss in the shootout was Davinson Sanchez, and Kenny Tete finished it off with style.

To give Fulham a well-deserved lead in the first half, Micky van de Ven turned a Tom Cairney cross into his own net. However, just before the hour, Richarlison’s back-post header pulled Fulham level.

Fulham held the advantage in chances, but after 90 minutes, neither team managed to score.

Dan Kilpatrick was at Craven Cottage to rate the Spurs players…

Fraser Forster 6

Made a few crucial, if standard, stops to keep the Spurs in the game. did not approach either of Fulham’s penalties, and playing out from the back was not entirely comfortable.

Emerson Royal 6

Defended his back post well but offered little in the way of attacking impetus.

Davinson Sanchez 4

fought valiantly in the first half, struggling on and off the ball and getting turned inside out by Cairney for the Fulham goal. However, they got better after the break and made a critical block to stop Harry Wilson. the hapless antagonist in the gunfight.

Micky van de Ven 7

Stood out and unlucky enough, for the second time in four games, put the ball in his own net. seemed to enjoy his extremely distinct physical fights with Adama Traore and Rodrigo Muniz.

Ben Davies 5

The captain for the night made no impact in possession but was solid enough defensively.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 4

Really wasteful in possession and unable to play through the Fulham press. Missed a glorious chance to level the game when the ball fell to him in the box.

Oliver Skipp 5

Ran tirelessly but loose with the ball in the face of Fulham’s well-organised press.

Giovani Lo Celso 6

Scampered around busily but struggled to make an impression in the final third and was often forced deep to pick up the ball.

Manor Solomon 6

Showed quick feet on the ball and forced Marek Rodak into a late save with a trademark curling effort on his return to the Cottage.

Ivan Perisic 7

Made Richarlison’s goal with a superb cross to the back post.

Richarlison 7

Took his goal well, having struggled to get into the game for the first hour. Can it kickstart his season – and Spurs career?


Dane Scarlett (Lo Celso 45′) 6

Helped to stretch Fulham’s back line at the start of the second half but never looked a goal threat.

Heung-min Son (Perisic 71′) 5

Hesitated when put through 1v1 with a defender in the box and the chance was gone.

Dejan Kulusevski (Richarlison 71′) 6

Released Son for a late opening and created a half-chance for Scarlett with a smart run.

Pape Matar Sarr (Skipp 71′) 6

Added fresh legs to the midfield battle, where Fulham were largely superior.

James Maddison (Solomon 82′) 6

Immediately made a difference with a weaving run to the byline but his cross was behind Kulusevski.

Not used: Vicario, Romero, Udogie, Bissouma.
