Spurs clinch their place in the FA Cup fourth round with a 2-0 win at Leicester. Here’s how we rated the Tottenham boys.

Michel Vorm 8

Made one save in particular that stood out and looked solid throughout.

Kyle Walker 6

Broke forward often but his final ball often let him down. Demarai Gray caused Walker problems too.

Eric Dier 7

Solid performance from Dier back in the defence after spending this season in midfield.

Kevin Wimmer 9

Super display from Wimmer who is making the most of his rare starts in recent weeks.

Ben Davies 7

Made an impact at both ends, but like Walker found himself out of position on occasions.

Nabil Bentaleb 6

Broke up a few attacks in the first half but didn’t look comfortable on the ball and was out-battled at times.

Tom Carroll 9

One of Carroll’s best displays in a Spurs shirt as he linked defence and midfield expertly and his range of passing is improving rapidly.

Erik Lamela 6

Similar to Saturday, Lamela couldn’t really get in the game and is struggling to find his form again.

Christian Eriksen 7

Showed touches of magic but was wasteful at times in the final third.

Nacer Chadli 7

Scored the vital second goal and looked much better when moved out wide.

Son Heung-min 9

Excellent game for Son who drifted across the midfield and scored the stunning opening goal.


Harry Kane 7

Instantly made an impact and Spurs just look more of a threat when he is on the pitch.

Josh Onomah 6

Looked bright and tried to get involved without seeing much of the ball.

Dele Alli 6

Only on for seven minutes.
