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.
Son Heung Min N/A
