Definitive Ranking Of Tottenham’s Most Important Current Players [opinion]

By Joe Fish -

I’ve seen this done somewhere else, a few years ago. So here goes…

I’ll be ranking Tottenham’s players based on their importance to the squad. All 25 players are listed on the first-team squad page on the club website.

25. Alfie Whiteman – Where else is a fourth-choice ‘keeper going to rank?

24. Michel Vorm – Where else is a third-choice ‘keeper going to rank?

23. Juan Foyth – Made only three starts this season and appears to be frozen out under Jose Mourinho.

22. Gedson Fernandes – Only six appearances into his Spurs career and yet to see what he truly offers.

21. Ryan Sessegnon – I hope he will rocket up this chart in the next year or two but the boy wonder’s first season has been a disappointment. Not trusted in either of his two positions yet.

Ryan Sessegnon

20. Oliver Skipp – Was on the verge of a breakthrough before the lockdown and, aside from Eric Dier, is the only midfielder that Spurs have with the positional discipline to be a genuine sitter.

19. Paulo Gazzaniga – May have been higher on this list before Hugo Lloris’s long-term injury exposed him as not good enough to challenge the skipper for the No.1 shirt. His reputation has taken a hit.

18. Erik Lamela – A cult favourite among some fans but he goes missing for six months every year, so he can’t be that important.

Eric Dier

17. Eric Dier – Has regretably tumbled down the hierarchy because of illness and injury. Dier used to be the guy who’d find a space in the team somewhere, but now where is the space for him?

Nothing shows how much we have regressed than Sissoko being sorely missed.The whole team seems to have dropped to his level.
This is on Levy’s head,the man who wouldn’t give Poch what he and everyone else knew was required to kick on,yet is now asking him to take a hit on his salary.
This of course while the players argue the toss over doing so to help Levy out.Let’s be clear about this,it isn’t about Spurs football club losing money whilst the sport is suspended,it’s about Lewis and Levy looking to preserve their obscene wages and bonuses.
Incidentally I think Lo Celso has proved in a short time to be more important than Dele for the simple reason he can influence games where Alli seems incapable now.
Also I think Toby is sadly no longer the force he was a couple of seasons ago.He has slowed like Jan and errors are creeping into his game since signing the new contract.This could be because he is having to cover more for the incompetence that surrounds him these days.I will reserve proper judgement.

Aurier not even in my 25, if I want a right winger I will buy one. Walking back into position watching your team mates scrambling to cover for you, disgusting.
