Lloris - 6 - Not one of his convincing displays.

Walker - 7.5 - Solid all night.
Fazio - 7.5 - Handled Gomez no problem.
Vertonghen - 7.5
Davies - 7 - Solid.

Bentaleb - 8 - Very very good.
Paulinho - 4 - Useless. Just doesn't play with any heart. Looks scared.

Chadli - 4.5 - Has to score one of his two clear cut chances and should have been more aggressive with the ball in good areas.
Eriksen - 4 - Bit invisible.
Townsend - 7.5 - Biggest attacking threat.

Soldado 1st Half - 7
Soldado 2nd Half - 3

Kane - 5.5 - Couldn't really get involved, needs to play the 9.
Lamela - 3.5 - Useless. Might as well get a track runner if we just want someone to run around and pressure and do nothing when they have the ball.
Mason - NET

Poch - Poor substitutions.

Might be a rough week or two for us. Very possibly going to go out of Europe, underdogs in the cup final, and some tough league matches coming up having just lost to Liverpool. Need to right the ship vs West Ham and then rest up for 2 huge matches. Don't want to go out of Europe again.

At HT we were unlucky not to lead, but on the 90 a draw is probably just about fair. We saw the real Fiorentina second half, they played more like QPR did in the first 45.

Chadli lower than Eriksen? Anyone lower than Eriksen? No chance, him and Lamela were terrible tonight. Only difference is that Eriksen was terrible for 93 minutes.

Such a game of two halves, but Lamela was really bad. Bentaleb was very good and overall some other good performances despite such a drop on general level on 2nd.

Maybe, I'm Lloris' biggest fan and as a keeper myself I love watching him but he didn't seem at his best today, the goal was unlucky but I think he could have got a better punch on it

Bentaleb, Davies and Verts good.

Soldado, Walker, Hugo decentish.

Eriksen, Chadli, Townsend. Zero end product.

Paulinho and Fazio. Very poor.

Kane was alright. Mason net. Lamela bloody awful.

A little disappointing in the end. Started off so brightly and rued our missed chances. All went flat in the 2nd half. Despite a few set piece issues I felt out back 4 did well. As for the attack, they all started well for the first 20 minutes or so, looking really sharp, but then they all dropped off significantly. Bentaleb played well though.

I'm sorry, but you give Paulinho a 2 but Eriksen a 5 when Eriksen played significantly worse?

Lloris - 6 - Didn't really have anything to do apart from their goal and you can't fault him for that goal.

Walker - 6 - Solid.
Fazio - 7 - Nothing to complain about.
Vertonghen - 7 - Same as Fazio.
Davies - 7 - Did well. If we somehow could put Davies brain in Rose we would have the best left back in the league.

Bentaleb - 7 - Solid.
Paulinho - 2 - How he gets minutes over Stambouli or Capoue I'll never understand. Should have been substituted at half time, but he got 80 minutes...

Chadli - 5 - Should have taken his chances but he was a threat and should have stayed on the pitch.
Eriksen - 3 - Off night. Really needs to improve his game overall. Yes, he is good at freekicks and finishing but he needs to start creating chances and not wasting so many passes.
Townsend - 6 - Above my expectations, linked up well with Walker.

Soldado - 5 - Played well in the first half but suffered when everyone else stoped playing football.

Kane - 3 - Wasted as a number 10. I don't really blame him for it.
Lamela - 3 - Yeah... I'm starting to lose faith but I won't give up on him yet. Really bad 20 minutes.
Mason - ? - Didn't have time to do anything.

Pochettino needs to take some blame for this result. Taking of Chadli and Townsend when he did was really strange and pointless, they were both doing okay. It almost feels like he was resting players for West Ham.

Next Fiorentina game is what, 2-3 days before the cup final? EL is over for me now. I don't want our best side trying to win that game, they should be saved for the cup final.

I lost count of the amount of times Eriksen passed it straight to the opposition player in front of him. He really should be getting more assists than he does.

Any ratings above a 4 are very generous.

Also, you can talk as much as you like about the time and space walker/Townsend had. The fact is they didn't create one single chance between them. Their end product was typically awful.

Very disappointing game and IMHO the only one that did well was Bentaleb who played his heart out compared to the rest

They did. Townsend down the right in the first half (towards the end), flicked it back to Walker who put in a good cross that Soldado met with his head and the keeper saved.
