Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal - Player Ratings

Last updated : 23 April 2007 By Luis Anaconda

One missing and an bad reaction to my contact lenses meant that I couldn't actually make out much of what happened - except that Spurs clearly won the league judging by their celebrations at the end. Some of you may notice some discrepancies in the ratings below, I'm sure most will not see any difference as usual.

Jens Lehmann - 6 - The consummate professional, he rose above any petty squabbles and just got on with his job.

Emmanuel Eboue - 7 - Stayed vertical for long periods of time and drove forward well.

Gael Clichy - 6 - Put in a great cross for Adebayor in the second half, I think, but it could have been Diaby … or Jens.

Kolo Toure - 7 - The African Cannavaro or an over-eager accident waiting to happen? Probably.

William Gallas - 6 - Put Jens in a bad mood with a terrible back-header. Naughty William.

Alexander Hleb - 6 - Our little god of close control and misplaced passes was but a blond blur and should have been replaced by the more easily identifiable Senderos a lot earlier.

Abou Diaby - 7 - Gave a consummate display in his new central-midfield-second-striker-left-wing position.

Gilberto Silva - 8 - Grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck in the second half - shame he didn't do the same to Jenas.

Tomas Rosicky - 6 - Buzzed around, got injured, buzzed off.

Freddie Ljungberg - 4 - Lovely touch to set up Adebayor's disallowed goal and was miles onside as far as I could see.

#Emmanuel Adebayor - 7 - Needed a goal and took his first chance superbly only to see it chalked out - fortunately he also took his fifth chance just as well.


Cesc Fabregas - 8 - Had a rest until we were in trouble and then came on and turned the match. Didn't score though - failure.

Julio Baptista - 4 - Less vision than I had.

Phillipe Senderos - n/a.
