Tottenham Hotspur put themselves in a tremendous position to qualify for the Last 32 of the Europa League on Thursday with a comfortable 4-0 win over Ludogorets.

Two goals from Carlos Vinícius in the first half were followed by a third and fourth from Harry Winks and Lucas Moura respectively late on in the second half to give Jose Mourinho’s side all three points, ahead of a final Group J clash with LASK.

But who were the best and worst performers on both sides?

✔️ GOOD PERFORMANCE

Harry Winks: 9.1

In the centre of Tottenham’s superb performance was Harry Winks pulling the strings and even getting on the scoresheet for his troubles on Thursday night.

The England midfielder not only made more passes than any other player on the pitch on the night, but also surpassed all others with passes to the final third, as well as three shots against the Bulgarian side.

Tanguy Ndombele: 7.9

Although the French midfielder didn’t manage to bag a goal for himself or even pick up an assist throughout the match, Tanguy Ndombele was unquestionably the engine in midfield that drove Tottenham to victory on Thursday.

His strong run through the middle of the park, and through three or four Ludogorets players, was a tremendous piece of individual skill and ultimately led to Tottenham’s opening goal of the night.

BAD PERFORMANCE

Kiril Despodov: 4.8

It was a difficult night for the Bulgarian side from the first whistle to the last and amongst a rather tepid team performance it was striker Kiril Despodov who perhaps looked like the worst performer on the pitch.

The Bulgarian forward managed just three passes, zero shots and a yellow card before his manager decided to pull him off in the 65th minute for a better option off the bench.

STAR MAN

Carlos Vinicius: 9.0

With just two goals to his name for the season prior to Thursday’s Europa League clash, Carlos Vinicius undoubtedly needed to take full advantage of a rare start in Mourinho’s side. And that’s exactly what he did.

Although the Brazilian forward would never claim to roam across the pitch like Harry Kane, he was certainly in the right place, at the right time for both short-range finishes to make short work of Tottenham’s opponent on the night.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Brazilian goalscorer turned to some playmaking duties late on in the match when he laid the ball off for Lucas Moura to bag a fourth for Tottenham.
