Worst 3 Tottenham Hotspur performers against Bournemouth
It is difficult to pick out a poor performer after a team has claimed a 5-1 victory away from home but one can state that left back Danny Rose was not at his best during Spurs’ dominant triumph over Bournemouth this weekend.
While Rose was certainly a threat going forward, he did look a bit suspect at the back and was constantly troubled by the dangerous Matt Ritchie throughout the course of the match.
Rose is capable of becoming a very good full back for Tottenham in the years to come but there is no doubting that he will have to become a better defender in order to keep the first choice left back spot away from Ben Davies.
Hugo Lloris has bailed Tottenham Hotspur out on countless occasions but against Bournemouth this weekend, it was arguably the other way round.
Tottenham conceded within the first minute of the game and Lloris will certainly have to take a bit of accountability for the concession of the goal.
While the strike from Ritchie was fierce, Lloris should never have been beaten on his near post. Given Lloris’ performances so far this season though, one cannot be hypercritical with the Frenchman and he did sort of make amends in the second period by pulling off a stunning save to deny Ritchie.
Another player who is a similar case to Danny Rose, Kyle Walker is a fantastic player going forward but he certainly leaves a lot to be desired of at the back.
Ironically during the game against Bournemouth, Walker produced a solid display defensively but he was very frustrating when on the ball.
Walker remains a key part of the Tottenham side under Pochettino but he most certainly has to bring about more consistency into his game.
