Tottenham vs. Chelsea: Player Ratings from Spurs' 5-1 FA Cup Loss

In all seriousness, who saw this coming?

Some certainly saw Chelsea winning the FA Cup semifinal at Wembley Stadium, but by a score of 5-1? Gareth Bale lost a little steam along the sideline, centre-backs Ledley King and William Gallas lost pace with Blues forwards and in the last 13 minutes, Chelsea scored three goals.

Spurs played well enough for most of the match to win it, but the simple truth is that they absolutely imploded those last 13 minutes. The end of the match was like a microcosm of Spurs' season—they played well in the beginning and then inexplicably fell apart towards the end.

The scoreline may say 5-1, but was Tottenham as dominated as the box score lets on? How did the individuals grade out? Check out my player ratings and let me know if you agree.
