Tottenham player ratings vs Fulham: Destiny Udogie and Pedro Porro exposed as debutant Radu Dragusin struggles

Tottenham missed the chance to return to the top four of the Premier League as they were hammered 3-0 by Fulham.

The Cottagers dominated the first half and led at the break through Rodrigo Muniz’s brilliantly taken touch and volley.

Sasa Lukic doubled their advantage soon after the interval, and then Muniz hit another as Spurs suffered one of their worst defeats of Ange Postecoglou’s reign.

Dom Smith was at Craven Cottage to rate the Spurs players’ performances…

Guglielmo Vicario 5

Alert to a couple of Fulham crosses in the opening stages when the hosts were well on top. Should have parried his save from Calvin Bassey nowhere near Muniz, but instead handed Fulham their third goal.

Pedro Porro 4

Some of his long passing was really imprecise. Not his best day at the office.

Cristian Romero 7

Spurs’ best defender by some distance, winning almost all of his aerial duels and pulling off a couple of decisive blocks as Fulham threatened.

Radu Dragusin 5

Was accurate and composed on the ball, but lost Muniz at the vital moment as Fulham edged in front — and you fancy Micky van de Ven may well have dealt with the cross that made that goal. Looked a little leggy by the end of his full debut.

Destiny Udogie 4

Anonymous for Tottenham on an evening when plenty of his team-mates were nowhere to be seen either.

Yves Bissouma 4

Saw very little of the ball and was booked and then subbed off.

Pape Sarr 5

Turned possession over a couple of times but was off the pace like the rest of Spurs’ midfield.

Dejan Kulusevski 5

Tried desperately to hold off the close attention of Fulham defenders, but found no space and endured a frustrating evening.

James Maddison 6

A poor loss of possession early on led to a double-chance for Fulham. Grew into the game and almost scored with one placed effort.

Brennan Johnson 4

Frustrating out wide on the left at times — too easily dispossessed. Should have scored when Son Heung-min squared at 3-0.

Son Heung-min 6

Missed a glorious chance midway through first half when the game was still goalless. Held the ball up responsibly.


Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Bissouma, 66’) 5

Played close to the centre-backs but without ever seeing much of the ball.

Timo Werner (Sarr, 66’) 6

Was lively when he came on.

Rodrigo Bentancur (Maddison, 66’) 6

Responsibly rotated play and fed his team-mates.

Richarlison (Johnson, 80’) N/A

Giovani Lo Celso (Son, 87’) N/A

Not used: Skipp, Royal, Davies, Austin
