Fulham fell to a 3-1 defeat at Wembley despite a spirited second-half comeback. Here’s how we rated each Whites player.
Could do little about the goals conceded, but a few spills too many from crosses put his back line under pressure. It will be interesting to see if he did enough to convince manager Slavisa Jokanovic to keep him in for next week’s match against Burnley.
Timothy Fosu-Mensah: 6
A quiet debut at right-back, with much of Spurs’ build-up play being had on the opposite flank. Looked to have taken a knock or two throughout the match.
Calum Chambers: 6
Came under a lot of pressure and dealt fairly well with the threat of Lucas Moura running in behind Harry Kane. His misplaced pass across defence almost gifted Spurs the opener just seven minutes in, however.
Maxime Le Marchand: 7
Dominant in the air and composed on the ground. Grew into the game as it went on, standing up to Kane impressively, but was undone by three moments of quality from the hosts.
Joe Bryan: 6
Was often outnumbered on the left side with Kieran Trippier seeing much of the ball on the overlap. But his delivery to the back post for the equaliser got Fulham back in the game early in the second half.
André-Frank Zambo Anguissa: 8
Promising debut from the Cameroonian, who showed nifty footwork in tight situations to break up play and begin Fulham’s attacks. Linked up well with Jean Michaël Seri and rarely put a foot wrong. Difficult to see Kevin McDonald regaining his spot in the line-up with that performance.
Jean Michaël Seri: 7
Understandably less influential on the game than in last week’s showing against Crystal Palace, though he still managed to accrue the highest number of passes and touches for Fulham.
Tom Cairney: 7
Came close to scoring against the run of play with a decent low first-time strike, but was largely frustrated by Spurs’ dominance in the middle throughout the first period. Still managed four key passes that led to chances – the most out of anyone on the pitch.
Ryan Sessegnon: 6
Unable to make his usual impact with Spurs dominating possession, although he did brilliantly to sneak in at the back post and pull back Bryan’s cross for Aleksandar Mitrović to equalise.
Aboubakar Kamara: 5
Ineffective going forward and did not provide enough defensive support on the left wing, leaving Bryan exposed against Trippier.
Aleksandar Mitrović: 7
Adapted well to reach Sessegnon’s cross from his knees and get Fulham back in the game. Also hit the post shortly before. But he should have done better with a chance on the edge of the box, which he snatched at when the scores were level.
