Tottenham player ratings v Aston Villa: 22-year-old is a disappointing 5/10
By Harry Sykes
Football Insider rates the Tottenham players after their 2-0 victory against Aston Villa in the FA Cup at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Michel Vorm 7 – The faithful understudy didn’t have a lot to do but looked composed when he was called into action.
Cameron Carter-Vickers 7 – Solid at the back although Aston Villa’s lack of adventure meant he wasn’t centre stage.
Toby Alderweireld 7 – A crucial block in the second half saved a goal and Alderweireld showed why he’s the star of this tight Tottenham defence.
Kevin Wimmer 7 – Could do with looking forward more, but solid enough at the back.

Kieran Trippier 8 – Showed again that he has some of the best delivery from out wide that we’ve seen this season. Plenty of energy in an impressive performance.
Eric Dier 6 – Back to midfield for Dier but this wasn’t his greatest game for Spurs.
Harry Winks 7 – Another good performance from the latest emerging star in Pochettino’s team. Showed why his manager has so much faith in him and helped raise the tempo in the second half.
Ben Davies 8 – It must be good to know that Spurs have such good cover for Danny Rose. Another great performance from the understudy and a fine headed goal to save going to a replay.
Heung-Min Son 7 – Lively, especially after Janssen was withdrawn and drew a good save from Sam Johnstone in the Villa goal. Scored the goal that made the tie safe with a good finish.
Vincent Janssen 5 – Poor, again. Tottenham only had one shot in the first 45 minutes and Janssen getting drawn towards the ball and out of position was one of the main reasons for this. The 22-year-old was disappointing and rightly taken off for Alli in the 60th minute.
Moussa Sissoko 6 – Another disappointing game and Georges-Kevin N’Koudou must be wondering what he has to do to get a start. Redeemed slightly with a tidy assist for the second goal.
Dele Alli (for Janssen, 60mins) – 7
Georges-Kevin N’Koudou (for Alderweireld, 70mins) – 7
Josh Onomah (for Sissoko, 84mins) – 6
