Manchester City and Spurs produced a Champions League classic at the Etihad Stadium, with Spurs progressing, despite losing 4-3 on the night, on away goals after a late City goal by Raheem Sterling was disallowed by VAR.

Sterling and Son Heung-min both struck twice in the first half, with Bernardo Silva’s deflected effort giving the hosts the lead.

An Aguero strike then put City in control of the tie but a bundled Fernando Llorente goal proved decisive for Spurs.

Here, we take a look at the ratings from one of Spurs’ greatest-ever nights.

TOTTENHAM (4-2-3-1)

Hugo Lloris: The Spurs captain conceded four goals but had it not been for some impressive saves, the game might have been gone. 8

Kieran Trippier: Allowed Sterling too much space for both of his goals as his defensive vulnerability was laid bare. 5

Toby Alderweireld: Looked the most solid of the Spurs defence as he produced some vital blocks, clearances and tackles. 7

Jan Vertonghen: Struggled to contain Sergio Aguero as his lack of pace was exposed, but helped his side over the line. 5

Danny Rose: Was simply unable to cope with City’s brilliant attacking prowess down the left, and was run ragged by Bernardo Silva. 5

Victor Wanyama: Asked to play a monumental role in midfield without any real match fitness, but he worked hard for his team. 7

Moussa Sissoko: Suffered an early injury which eventually did for him just before half-time. His absence was a big loss for Spurs. 6

Dele Alli: Able to start despite a broken hand, he looked like he would have an enjoyable evening, but was forced to move into a deeper role and struggled. 6

Christian Eriksen: Played a part in two goals, and was generally the man to pull the strings for those around him. 7

Lucas Moura: Fresh from scoring a hat-trick at the weekend, his pace frightened City’s defence to death, but could not make a telling contribution. 6

Son Heung-min: Scored two goals in the unbelievable opening to the game as he continued to step into the limelight in Harry Kane’s absence. 7

Substitutes

Fernando Llorente (on for Sissoko, 41): Ended up as the hero for Spurs as his goal, however scruffy, sent Spurs into their first-ever Champions League semi-final. 7

Ben Davies (on for Moura, 81): Brought on as late defensive reinforcements and played his part. 6

Davinson Sanchez (on for Rose, 90): N/A
