Jannik Vestergaard – 2

Where to begin, Vestergaard failed to win any fans over in what was an abhorrent performance from the former Southampton defender.

He was often beaten in aerial duels despite his obvious advantage over opposition players. The Danish centre-back seemed to struggle to stay on his man at set-pieces, which raises the question if the zonal-marking was the real reason behind our failure from set-pieces this season, or if our defenders are just poor from crosses. However that is an argument for another time.

Vestergaard seemed to be unable to read the flight of the ball and would be stuck in no-man’s land and not applying any pressure on the opposition. He was largely at fault for Spurs’ first goal of the night when he played a terrible pass that was cut out and failed to track back to try and prevent Kane from scoring.

The night wouldn’t get any better for him as he was regularly beaten for pace by attackers, even Kane managed to out run him getting onto the end of a through ball. There is no doubt that questions will be asked of his spot in the side after another mistake-prone game from the Dane.
