Tottenham player ratings against Hull: 30-year-old is 5/10
COMMENT By Harvey Byrne
Football Insider rates the Tottenham players out of ten after they recorded a 7-1 win against Hull on Sunday afternoon at the KCOM Stadium.
Hugo Lloris 6 – A quiet afternoon for the Frenchman. Was unfortunate not to keep a clean sheet and match Thibaut Courtois’ 16 league clean sheets for the golden glove.
Kieran Trippier 8 – Made some great runs up the field and the second goal was all down to him as he laid the ball onto a plate for Kane with the perfect pass into the six-yard box before planting the ball on Alderweireld’s head for the seventh.
Toby Alderweireld 8 – Solid at the back once again. Made a perfect clearance for one of Hull’s few attacks which would have caused severe problems had he not been there. Popped up at the end to score his side’s seventh.
Jan Vertonghen 5 – The 30-year-old let his team down massively for the Hull goal. Too relaxed on the ball and was deservedly punished.

Ben Davies 7 – Struck away Spurs’ last goal of the same with a fine effort from range. Looked assured in his position on Sunday afternoon.
Eric Dier 7 – Played a key role in his side’s opener. Broke up play excellently in the middle to win the ball back and lay off the ball to Eriksen. He marshalled the midfield brilliantly on Sunday.
Victor Wanyama 7 – Bossed the centre of the field once again. Rarely ever see a poor performance from the Kenyan and fans will be hoping for the same next season. Deserved his goal.
Christian Eriksen 7 – Assisted the first goal and fourth goal with a calm pass to Kane in the final third alongside a sweet free kick to pick out Wanyama. Always looked dangerous when on the ball.
Dele Alli 8 – Quite a quiet performance from the young star, but a sweet finish just before half time put his side three goals up in the comfortable victory before assisting Kane for the fifth.
Son Heung-min 7 – Son’s pace caused problems to the Hull defence and only poor finishing prevented him from getting on the scoresheet. However, his unselfish cut back set Alli up to score the third.
Harry Kane 10 – Everything the striker touches seems to turn the gold. Caught goalkeeper David Marshall flat footed for the first with a sweet strike outside of the box before being gifted his second and then bagging his hat-trick in the second half. He will surely gain world class status next season.
Mousa Dembele (For Dier 73 minutes) – 6
Moussa Sissoko (For Alli 73 minutes) – 6
Vincent Janssen (For Kane 79 minutes) – 6
