Spurs beat Sunderland 4-1 at lunch time and we have rated the hosts.

Hugo Lloris 6

Beaten poorly for the opening goal but in fairness didn’t have much else to do.

Kieran Trippier 9

Probably Tottenham’s best player and got forward brilliantly to assist in attacks.

Toby Alderweireld 8

Another good display from Aderweireld who has to be among the best defenders in the country.

Jan Vertonghen 7

Another solid display from Vertonghen who had the beating of Defoe.

Danny Rose 7

Flew forward but was caught out of position in the second half.

Eric Dier 7

Deeper than usual from Dier who just allowed his team mates to attack. Looks more comfortable with Dembele than Carroll.

Mousa Dembele 8

A nice goal capped a good return from Dembele who looked powerful going forward.

Dele Alli 7

Not his best game in a Spurs shirt but Alli was a threat in the second half.

Erik Lamela 5

Not really in the game, strayed offside and gave the ball away in key areas.

Christian Eriksen 7

Drifted across the midfield and scored two goals, with plenty of help from the Sunderland defence.

Harry Kane 7

No service was an issue for Kane who did well for the equaliser and scored a penalty.


Josh Onomah 7

Energetic and worried the Sunderland back four.

Tom Carroll 6

Didn’t make much impact.
