Tottenham player ratings v Everton: Senior player closes debate
COMMENT By Harvey Byrne
Football Insider rates the Tottenham players out of ten after their 3-2 win against Everton in their Premier League clash at White Hart Lane.
Hugo Lloris 6 – Was fairly untroubled between the sticks. Did his job when necessary and couldn’t do anything to stop either goals.
Kyle Walker 7 – Made some surging runs up the pith and was a constant threat to Leighton Baines down the right.
Eric Dier 4 – A poor display from the England international. Completely lost Enner Valencia for his goal and gave away needless fouls up the pitch.
Toby Alderweireld 6 – Did well in the defence and was unfortunate his side didn’t finish with a clean sheet.

Jan Vertonghen 5 – Played well up to the 80th minute, but a horrendous mistake made the final 10 minutes more nervy than it should have done before Alli’s goal.
Ben Davies 7 – His work rate was priceless down the left. Still not as good as Danny Rose, but a more than worthy stand in.
Victor Wanyama 7 – Controlled the centre of the park. Was unlucky to hit the post in the first half with a rare attacking move from the Kenya international.
Mousa Dembele 7 – Showed magnificent footwork in the centre of the park once again. Always maintaining possession for his team.
Christian Eriksen 7 – His set-pieces were a constant threat from dead balls, but he struggled to recreate in open play.
Dele Alli 8 – Had a quiet match. However he scored the all important goal in stoppahe tome to give his side the three points.
Harry Kane 9 – The senior man beat Robles with a stunning strike from range to open the scoring before coolly finishing once more in the second half. His first goal certainly closed the debate as to whether he was better than Lukaku going on before the clash, despite the Belgian’s goal.
Harry Winks (For Dembele 78 minutes) – 7
Moussa Sissoko (For Eriksen 87 minutes) – 6
Vincent Janssen (For Kane 90 minutes) – 6
