Tottenham Hotspur: Ben Davies, Emerson and Lucas Moura struggle v Brentford

Tottenham Hotspur: Ben Davies, Emerson and Lucas Moura struggle v Brentford -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur coasted to a 2-0 win at home to Brentford on Thursday night thanks to an own goal from Sergi Canos and a second half strike from Son Heung-Min.

While there were some very solid performances in a Spurs shirt, not all of their players may have been too pleased with their own individual display, as The Transfer Tavern have used statistical experts SofaScore to analyse who the three worst performers (to have played at least 45 minutes) were:

Lucas Moura (7.0)

Moura was given the same rating as second place (seven) by SofaScore, but comes in third as he had fewer minutes on the pitch.

The Brazilian lost out on four of his duels and also failed to record a single key pass, accurate cross or long ball in the game.

His mere 54% pass accuracy was the worst out of any Tottenham player to have started the match, while he was also guilty of losing possession of the ball on 16 separate occasions in total.

Emerson Royal (7.0)

Emerson was also given a rating of seven by SofaScore, as he was taken off for Japhet Tanganga in the 83rd minute.

The right wing-back lost five duels and failed to make a successful dribble, key pass, accurate cross or long ball, while also losing possession 10 times.

Ben Davies (6.9)

Davies was actually given the worst rating of any Spurs player by SofaScore (6.9), despite originally being credited with putting Antonio Conte’s team in front with his header, before it was given as an own goal by Canos.

Should Tottenham start Davies?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Wales international also lost five of his duels, while failing to record any tackles or key passes, and losing the ball a mammoth 21 times, the most out of his teammates.
