On a sunny, Saturday lunchtime, we travelled to West Ham aware that two wins in our remaining two games would see the club equal their points tally from last season. We had just come off the back of an away win at Stoke, something only two other clubs had done all season. We started solid and you could see that the link up play was there. But there was one problem, Andy Carroll. The English striker was getting his head on everything and it was causing Tottenham a serious problem. Kaboul was sent off early on as he challenged Downing and took him down. Younes was the last man and because of this, he was sent his marching orders. Things went from bad to worse, an Andy Carroll header deflected off Harry Kane and into the net. Our French goalkeeper pulled off some world class saves before Stewart Downing doubled their lead. A simple free-kick managed to worm it’s way through the wall and beat Hugo at his near post. Lloris was simply outstanding today and without him, the result could have been even worse. Danny Rose had a chance in the dying minutes to reduce the deficit but his close range shot was tipped over by Adrian. Player ratings: Hugo Lloris – 8 – Hugo was the best player on the pitch by a huge distance today. He made a handful of wonderful saves and deserved MOM. Kyle Naughton – 6 – Kyle was fairly solid today and impressed me. Passing was good but was often out of position. Michael Dawson – 6 – The skipper was solid again today but made no difference. Needs to take the long balls out of his game completely. Younes Kaboul – 4 – Younes was having a good game until he was sent off. Having him on the pitch could have changed the state of the game. Danny Rose – 5 – Danny showed no fear and was involved in the game lots today. Attacked well and was nearly gifted with a goal late on. Aaron Lennon – 5 – Aaron was average again today. Showed his speed today but lacked the final ball. Paulinho – 5 – the Brazilian midfielder was quiet today but was creative when he had the ball . Never really tracked back. Gylfi Sigurdsson – 5 – The Icelandic player was quiet today. Was clearly told by Tim not to attack with the others. Christian Eriksen – 7 – Christian was yet again creative today. Seemed like the only player who wanted to change the game. Put in a few dangerous crosses too. Emmanuel Adebayor- 5 – Ade has been quiet for e past few games and today was no different. Had a great chance early doors but failed to take it. Harry Kane – N\A – Harry was lively until he was taken off by Tim because of the sending off. Didn’t really get a chance today. Subs Vlad Chiriches – 6 – Vlad came on after the sending off and was solid today. Very calm on the ball but worries me sometimes as he can be too calm. Roberto Soldado – 5 – Roberto came on looking confident. Had a couple of goalscoring chances but didn’t convert. Sandro - 5 - Brought on for Paulinho in the 65th minute. Had little impact on the game, sloppy in possession. We host Aston Villa in our last league game of the season next Sunday.
