Tottenham second half player ratings vs Roma: Ivan Perisic and Cristian Romero impress in defeat

Here are our second half ratings from Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-season friendly against Jose Mourinho’s Roma in Israel on Saturday evening

Paulo Dybala slides in on Ivan Perisic during the friendly match between Tottenham Hotspur and Roma at the Sammy Ofer Stadium in Haifa

Hugo Lloris

Didn’t have a single notable thing to do in the 20 minutes of the second half he was on for. Can only get a five but that’s not really his fault. 5

Cristian Romero

Headed a good chance just wide of the Roma goal nine minutes into the second period. Made a terrific tackle to stop Zaniolo as he ran into the Spurs box. 8

Eric Dier

Dealt with Roma better in the second half although he needed Romero to bail him out when Zaniolo breezed through. 6

Showed why he’s been brought in within the first 10 minutes of the second half with a dribble down the left and a cross for Romero to head just wide. 7

Matt Doherty

A couple of nice аttасkıпɢ touches and less to do defensively in this half, but whether it was enough to convince Conte will be seen next weekend. 5

Rodrigo Bentancur

Brought a bit more bite to the midfield than Bissouma in the second half and Spurs have more control of the centre of the pitch. 6

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

The Dane got 90 minutes under his belt and didn’t do much wrong in the game. 6

Ivan Perisic

Sent a shot over early in the half and made a great defensive block to stop a Roma break just after the hour mark. One of Spurs’ better players on the night. 8

Dejan Kulusevski

A quiet second half from the Swede in the Haifa heat. 5

Harry Kane

Could have had a penalty in the second half and should have buried a header from Sessegnon’s cross late on. 6

Son Heung-min

Some good movement but the service wasn’t great for him. 6


Lucas Moura

Some bursts of speed but another attacker who struggled to find a way through the resolute Roma backline. 5


Good run by the Brazilian into the box on 84 minutes but he was tackled at the last moment. He got under Roma’s skin at times. 6

Emerson Royal

Headed wide from a deep cross in added time and didn’t add much down the right. 5
