Arsenal missed out on a chance to the top of the points table after Harry Kane rescued a point for Mauricio Pochettino's men after Arsenal took the lead through Kevin Wimmer's own goal. For an entertaining game where numerous chances were created, glaring defensive mistakes ended the game at 1-1.
Hugo Lloris: 6.5
Could have done nothing to stop that first own goal from Kevin Wimmer. But made some good saves after the horror show from Wimmer. Was his assured self in the second half.
Kyle Walker: 4.5
Jan Vertonghen: 7
Was caught in a constant battle with Walcott which the Belgian managed to come out on top. But the centre-half was solid covering up for the dreadful defending from Wimmer. Also made life difficult for Sanchez throughout the game.
Kevin Wimmer: 3
The 24-year old had a horrendous outing
Danny Rose: 6
The left-back good on the offensive and did not leave much room for Bellerin initially. Defensively, the England international was out of place whenever Ozil drifted wide allowing Bellerin to get inside.
Eric Dier: 5.5
Played as the third centre-back when Tottenham brought the ball out of the back, but struggled to match the pace of Sanchez during Arsenal’s
Son Heung-min: 8
Was a constant threat in the final third with his pace and directness. His
Victor Wanyama: 6
His battle with Coquelin helped Tottenham cut off the supply lines to Sanchez and Iwobi initially. But was unable to plug the holes in the midfield whenever Bellerin pushed forward.
Mousa Dembélé: 5.5
Partnered Eric Dier excellently in the first 20 minutes to put Xhaka and Coquelin in check. But was unable to break down Arsenal’s direct play after the initial success in the midfield.
Christian Eriksen: 8.5
The Dane was excellent with his runs down through the centre and exchanging positions with Son constantly. Almost scored the winner for the visitors if not for his free-kick to hit the woodwork.
Harry Kane: 7
Missed a good chance in the first half following some great work by Son and Eriksen. Was hauled off the ball easily by
Vincent Janssen: 3
Unable to improve Tottenham’s attack after coming on for Kane in the 73rd minute.
Kieran Trippier: 6
Did a decent job replacing Walker at the right-back. Made a good clearance
Harry Winks: 3
The forward did not have much time to do anything after coming on for Son at the end of regular time.
Petr Cech: 6.5
Was let down by Koscielny’s foul as Kane’s spot-kick was flawless. Did well whenever called into action including a super save off Eriksen’s shot in the second half.
Hector Bellerin: 6
The Spaniard was excellent going
Shkodran Mustafi: 4
The German international was the better of the Gunner central defenders but his game was riddled with some poor clearances putting Cech in danger on multiple occasions. Looked confused in his marking of Kane and Eriksen.
Laurent Koscielny: 3
Came out second best with his duels against Son and Eriksen. Committed an
Nacho Monreal: 8.5
Thwarted Harry Kane a clear opportunity at the near post with a brilliant last-ditch tackle in the second half. Was clinical with his passing while going on the overlap and handled the threat Walker with a level head.
Francis Coquelin: 7
Was initially outnumbered by the likes of Wanyama, Dier and Dembele in the middle but grew into the game after the first 25 minutes. Put in some crunching tackles to break Tottenham’s momentum.
Coquelin has even surpassed Busquets' play acting. He's numero uno now. pic.twitter.com/aS95uDfTzw— renato (@rehnato) November 6, 2016
Granit Xhaka: 6.5
The Swiss international had some interesting duels in the engine room once Arsenal pushed on the accelerator in the first half. Did well to win some crucial interceptions helping the Gunners build some good attacks.
Theo Walcott: 4
Made a mess of a good chance at the near post in the first half. The Englishman was left frustrated by the likes of Dembele and Vertonghen. He also made a mess of a promising move with an instinctive back-heeled interception on a promising Arsenal counter.
Mesut Ozil: 7.5
Alex Iwobi: 4
His play down the left flank slowed down the play for Arsenal at times. Missed a clear chance in the first half. Was replaced by Giroud with 20 minutes from time.
Alexis Sanchez: 5
Though not at his best on the day, the Chilean did some good work creating chances
Aaron Ramsey: 6
Came on for Coquelin in the 70th minute and helped Arsenal maintain their tempo. Also went for a couple of shots from the distance.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: 4
Was unable to affect the game after coming on for Walcott as he was subdued by Wimmer and Vertonghen. His audacious shots from difficult angles did not help Arsenal’s cause.
