Tottenham player ratings: Ndombele bright on first start under Nuno


T

ottenham kicked off their Europa Conference League campaign with a 2-2 draw with Rennes in France.

Lucas Moura’s deflected cross gave Spurs an early lead but in the end they needed a rare goal from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg to salvage a point.

Couldn’t do much about the first Rennes goal, which was finished well, but he won’t be happy with the second – which he palmed straight to Gaetan Laborde.

Got into a few good attacking positions but really struggled to make them count. Helped create the second Spurs goal, but even that cross had a deflection.

Suspended for Chelsea this weekend but he started tonight. Fairly solid performance from the youngster at centre-back.

Making his European debut and did okay. A contender to start against Chelsea this weekend given injuries and suspensions.

Better than Doherty on the other flank, but not by much. Might be disappointed with second Rennes goal and Laborde beating him to the rebound.

Probably Tottenham’s best player on the night. Played a key role in the Spurs goal with a delightful backheel. Looked bright and lively.

Neat and tidy, but didn’t really influence the game massively. Outshone by Ndombele and Hojbjerg in midfield.

A couple of nice moments. Still seems to be finding his feet, and best position, at Tottenham. Offers Nuno something different.
