Football Insider rates the Tottenham players during their 2-1 win over Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday.
Hugo Lloris 6 – Only had to make routine saves. Commanding in his area and positioning spot on throughout.
Jan Vertonghen 7 – Shane Long was always looking to cause trouble, but Vertonghen remained composed and dealt with the threat.
Toby Alderweireld 6 – His failed clearance allowed Ward-Prowse to score for Southampton. A rare mistake, but a costly one. Had a bullet header superbly denied by Forster.
Eric Dier 6 – A mixed bag. A few sloppy passes, but made several crucial interventions.
Ben Davies 6 – Lucky not to have conceded a penalty for a foul on Tadic. Still not quite at Danny Rose’s level.
Kyle Walker 7 – An intriguing battle with Nathan Redmond, but it was the defender that came out on top.
Victor Wanyama 7 – The typical Wanyama display. Composed, won the ball well, and bossed the midfield.
Mousa Dembele 7 – Authoritative alongside Wanyama. Set about his work calmly and quietly.
Christian Eriksen 8 – The 25-year-old repeatedly split the Southampton defence with his passing, and made everything look so easy. Opened the scoring with a superb strike.
Dele Alli 8 – Coolly taken penalty for yet another goal. Fantastic yet again, combining well with the influential Eriksen.
Son Heung-Min 6 – Few clear cut chances, but was lively in the final third. Sacrificed late on to preserve the lead.
Harry Winks 6 (for Son 75)
Kieran Tripper 6 (for Walker 78)
Vincent Janssen 6 (for Eriksen 86)
