Bassey Gets Lowest Rating, Iwobi Average In Fulham’s Home Loss Vs Spurs

Calvin Bassey got the lowest rating as he was at fault for Tottenham Hotspur’s two goals in Fulham’s 2-0 home loss on Monday night.

The rating was for every Fulham player and compiled by London News Online.

Bassey was guilty of giving the ball away in the build-up to goals by Heung-Min Son and James Maddison.

Following his poor performance, Bassey was rated three out of 10, the lowest by any Fulham player.

Bassey’s Super Eagles teammate Alex Iwobi, who came on in the second half, got five.

Commenting on Bassey’s poor display, London News Online: stated:“Gave the ball away in the build-up to both of the Tottenham goals and was bailed out by Tim Ream when he lost possession to Maddison with Spurs chasing a third.

“Made a couple of good blocks in the first half but never looked comfortable as a left-footer on the right of the centre-back pairing. Could prove to be an issue to solve for Marco Silva in the coming weeks with no return date yet given for the injured pair of Issa Diop and Tosin Adarabioyo.”

For Iwobi, the media outfit wrote: “Struggled to have the influence he had in his early Fulham cameos.”

Bassey only made his second start for Fulham since his transfer from Ajax in the summer.

It was the 23-year-old’s fifth appearance for Fulham in the English elite division.

Fulham are 13th in the league standings with 11 points and next face a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion in Premier League action on October 29.

    Bassey is not a CB the easiest he reverts back to LB the better for his career.

    Yes Bassey was guilty of both goals but a player coming from an almost broken self confidence and being played in an unfamiliar position on the right hand side of a three man defence and worst still against one of the most fierce and formidable attacking teams in the Premier league presently, I N I WILL GIVE BASSEY A GOOD HANDSHAKE WHILST SUPPORTING HIM TO AVOID SUCH MISTAKES GOING FORWARD.
    If not for those two fatal mistakes, his overall play gave some good sense of how good a defender is sure gonna be with regular game time and age.
    Also Marco Silver must be careful with this idea of playing 3 at the back. He hasn’t gotten the character of a defensive midfielder to make it work. Yes Bassey made those blunders but it was partly due to the absence of a capable n confident defensive midfielder coming to receive balls from him since the coach might have made it compulsory that they play out their way from the defence.
