Tottenham player ratings v Hull: 24-year-old is beginning to find his true form
By Amir Mir
Football Insider rates the Tottenham players out of ten after their 3-0 win over Hull at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.
Hugo Loris 7 – It may have been a comfortable victory for the home side, but the Frenchman kept his cool during important moments. He made some top saves in the first half, in particular off former Spurs midfielder Jake Livermore. Lloris’ calmness at the back is so crucial to the success of this side.
Kyle Walker 8 – Another brilliant performance from the right-back who is quickly becoming one of the best players in the Premier League in his position. The Hull backline could not handle his pace, nor power, as was proven when he helped assist his side’s second goal of the night.
Toby Alderweireld 7 – The away side did not produce attack, after attack, but when they did the Belgian was prepared and ready to deal with any threat. Produced a top quality block in the second half.
Jan Vertonghen 7 – He kept Tigers forward Adama Diomande quiet throughout the game, the powerful attacker tried to settle the defensive backline, but Vertonghen was always there to deal with the danger.

Danny Rose 8 – Just like Walker, the pace and power they are able to produce is outstanding. Regardless of the scoreline they keep on going and his work was rewarded with a brilliant assist in the first half.
Eric Dier 6 – Quiet game for the England international, but he kept things simple in front of the defence and allowed the rest of the attackers to do their job.
Victor Wanyama 7 – Found the back of the net thanks to a wonderful free-kick from Eriksen and was typically tough in his tackles when he had to do his defensive duties.
Moussa Sissoko 6 – One of the more better performances from the former Newcastle man, but he will have to up his game even more, if he wants to play for a team of this quality.
Christian Eriksen 9 – Outstanding display from the 24-year-old who ran the show on Wednesday evening. From his slick passing, to his movement and eventually his two goals, Eriksen is beginning to look like his old self once more.
Dele Alli 6 – He looked very lively going forward, in particular in the first half when the Hull backline constantly failed to pick up his movement. Should have got on the scoresheet, but was substituted on the hour mark after a solid display.
Harry Kane 6 – A solid display from the England striker who produced a typical workmanlike display.
Harry Winks (For Alli, 62mins) – 6
Son Heung-Min (for Kane, 74mins) – 6
Josh Onomah (For Sissoko, 85mins) – 5
