Caught in no mans land for Olympiakos' opener. Gave away the pen for the second and will probably want to forget tonight fairly quickly.Ben Davies - 6Done well to win ball high up the pitch and ping a lovely ball across to Moura for Spurs' second. Couldn't do much for the Greeks' first goal despite it being played down his side. No shame in his performance.6 Lucas Moura put Tottenham 2-0 up with a great strike and was Spurs' best player before he was subbed offCredit: Reuters6 The Brazilian's efforts were not matched by many of his teammatesCredit: AFP or licensorsTanguy Ndombele - 4 (subbed off 61 mins)Virtually invisible until he was hauled off on the hour mark. These are the nights he should be paying back the club record fee paid for him and he did anything but that.Harry Winks - 6Ran around slightly more than everyone else in the first-half which isn't saying much. Booked late on.Lucas Moura - 7 (subbed off 75 mins)Sumptuous finish from the edge of the box to put Spurs 2-0 up against the run of play on the half-hour mark. Carried on his rich vein of Champions League form from last season as his teammates remained flat around him. Subbed off with cramp. CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN had an absolute stinker as Tottenham escaped Olympiakos with a 2-2 draw in their Champions League Group B opener.Spurs raced into a 2-0 lead within half an hour completely against the run of play thanks to a penalty won and converted by Harry Kane and a super strike from Lucas Moura.But the Greeks nicked one back just before half-time before scoring a penalty of their own through Mathieu Valbuena on 54 minutes.And here's how William Pugh thought Spurs applied themselves in Greece.6 Christian Eriksen had an absolute stinker for Tottenham at OlympiakosCredit: Getty - ContributorHugo Lloris - 6Didn't put a foot wrong in the first-half and couldn't be blamed for the first two goals he conceded. Flapped at a late cross which could have thrown the game away. Got away with it.Davinson Sanchez - 6Applied himself well enough as makeshift right-back again. Nothing spectacular but nothing horrific either.Toby Alderweirled - 5Very average indeed. Let down by his central defensive partner who had a bit of a mare.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big onecenter_img Christian Eriksen - 3Absolutely terrible. Poor decision making throughout, sloppy passing and not the standard he usually produces. Gave away ball on edge of his own box which led to penalty being conceded for home side's second. Astounded he was left on for 90 minutes.Dele Alli - 5 (subbed off 72 mins)Sky high shot just before the break. Disallowed goal in the second-half for a clear offside. Should have scored when through down right channel on 65 minutes. Last effort was closest he came to bagging his first Champions League goal since November 2017 against Real Madrid. Looked surprised and disappointed to be taken off. Not sure why.Harry Kane - 7Done well to win penalty and converted with aplomb. Didn't trouble the Greeks too much aside from that but done what he was there to do.6 Spurs looked flat in their Group B openerMOST READ IN FOOTBALL THROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine's father was '50-50' in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham's InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney 'drinking like madman' & Gerrard 'on bar dancing shirtless'NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himSubsMoussa Sissoko (on for Ndombele, 61 mins) - 5Didn't have much of an impact.
