Moussa Sissoko-8

For those of you wondering, there’s still time to get on board the Moussa Sissoko train. Ok, so the French midfielder didn’t play a world-class match, but he was very effective.

Not only did he provide a quality assist for Kane’s second goal, but he ran his socks off for the entire match. He gave his club a real threat down the right hand side in concert with Serge Aurier in the opening stanza.

When a lot of his midfield teammates were standing around, he was buzzing around and harassing the opposition. It’s time for Spurs fans to give Sissoko his due.

Son Heung-Min-4

Son can be a quality attacker on his day, but he was useless in this match. If Tottenham hadn’t managed to win this match, we’d all be talking about the free header he missed in the first half. Yes, he should have been judged offside, but he wasn’t. It’s a chance a player of his caliber simply has to convert.

As I’ve said on multiple other occasions, when Son isn’t scoring or assisting, he doesn’t give you very much. He expended some energy on the press, but never really accomplished anything. Add it all up and it equals a very poor outing for the South Korean star.
