Spurs came from behind to beat Crystal Palace 3-1, here’s how we rated the Tottenham men.

Hugo Lloris 7

Very, very sloppy in the first half but made two stunning saves in the second to keep Spurs in it.

Kieran Trippier 7

Good attacking display again from Trippier who dealt with Jason Puncheon well.

Jan Vertonghen 6

Scored an own goal, which won’t help, but was solid enough before going off injured.

Toby Alderweireld 7

Sloppy for the Palace opener but made some vital blocks in the second half.

Danny Rose 5

Gave away a number of free kicks and couldn’t handle the hot Zaha.

Eric Dier 5

Uncharacteristically poor display from Dier who wasn’t he usual enforced self, instead gave the ball away plenty and was subbed before the hour mark.

Mousa Dembele 7

Marauding as ever from Dembele who was Tottenham’s best midfielder.

Son Heung-min 7

Deserved his start and will keep his place after another promising showing.

Dele Alli 8

Was fairly awful for the first 70 minutes. But wow, what a goal. Sensational.

Christian Eriksen 7

Was neat and tidy and found some impressive through balls, however his set piece delivery is borderline atrocious.

Harry Kane 8

Had to work hard for every scrap but came good when needed.


Nacer Chadli 8

Set up the equaliser and looked sharp before scoring a beauty

Kevin Wimmer 6

Solid sub appearance for the centre back.

Nabil Bentaleb 6

On to sure up the midfield.
