Tottenham assistant Steffen Freund impressed with youngsters

Tottenham assistant boss Steffen Freund felt Wednesday's 3-0 Capital One Cup third-round victory at Carlisle was a good demonstration of the strength in depth the London club's squad now has.

<b>FRANCE</b> <br /><b>Hugo Lloris: </b> Had no chance with Spain’s goal (pictured) but rushed out well to deny Cesc Fabregas when the Spaniard was played through on goal just after the hour. 6/10
<br /><b>Anthony Reveillere: </b> Looked relatively assured in defence but rather limited going forward. Combined with Mathieu Debuchy, the French did not offer any threat down the right-hand side. Conceded a late penalty when he tangled with Pedro. 5/10
<br /><b>Adil Rami: </b> Produced a vital block to deny Pedro midway through the second-half and performed pretty well. Sometimes slow to turn when faced with Spain’s movement and pace, but held his own nonetheless. 6/10
<br /><b>Laurent Koscielny: </b> Replaced Philippe Mexes and certainly did not disgrace himself. Not at fault for either of Spain’s goals and actually marshalled Spain’s attacking midfielders relatively well. 6/10
<br /><b>Gael Clichy: </b> Aggressive in the tackle and able to stop Arbeloa from causing any real danger. But the left-back could perhaps have been more aware of Alonso’s run for Spain’s first goal, though he could have done with a shout from Malouda. Also caught ball-watching when Fabregas raced through on goal in the second-half. 5/10
<br /><b>Mathieu Debuchy: </b> Allowed Jordi Alba to race past him for Spain’s first goal. Debuchy was played out of position and looked a little bit lost during the first-half. Seemed to grow in confidence in the second period and almost equalised with a powerful header on sixty minutes, though he was removed shortly after. 5/10
