Tottenham player ratings v Swansea: 29-year-old is 9/10
By Editor Wayne Veysey
Football Insider rates the Tottenham players in their 5-0 win against Swansea in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Hugo Lloris 6 – Could have entered the mannequin challenge so little did he have to do.
Kyle Walker 7 – Overcame an early injury scare to provide pace and purpose on the right flank.
Eric Dier 6 – Swansea did not have enough of the ball to cause the Englishman too many problems.
Jan Vertonghen 7 – Authoritative and commanding but still appeared to miss his fellow Belgian Toby Alderweireld.

Danny Rose 7 – Spurs always look a better balanced side when the left-back is romping up and down the flank and this was an impressive display after missing the Chelsea match due to suspension.
Victor Wanyama 7 – Solid, controlled and disciplined, he foraged, intercepted, tackled and used the ball sensibly.
Mousa Dembele 9 – Oozed class and composure in a display that laid the foundations for a convincing win. The 29-year-old brought back memories of his 2015/16 masterclasses.
Christian Eriksen 8 – Did not win any awards for bravery with his headed goal that appeared to go in by accident rather than design, but built on his fine display against Chelsea with two goals.
Son Heung-Min 8 – The darling of September ended his goal drought with a brilliant volleyed finish to put his team 2-0 up. The south Korean fizzed with menace and was unfortunate to be withdrawn with 20 minutes left.
Dele Alli 7 – Controversially won the penalty that sent Spurs on their way and his link up play was mightily impressive.
Harry Kane 8 – Took his goal tally for the season to eight goals, including seven in the league, with a coolly taken penalty and fine finish to a slick counterattack. Led the line with aplomb.
Moussa Sissoko (for Son70mins) – 6
Harry Winks (for Dembele 82mins) 6
Josh Onomah (for Kane 86mins) – 6
