Tottenham Hotspur put in one of their best performances of the season on Saturday as Mauricio Pochettino’s men cruised past Everton, winning 4-0.
Goals from Son Heung-min, Christian Eriksen and a Harry Kane brace confirmed the three points for Spurs at Wembley, with the Lilywhites faithful treated to an attacking masterclass.
Here are the player ratings after the Tottenham victory:
Hugo Lloris – 6/10 – The Spurs stopper was rarely troubled in the home side’s goal, in what was an easy day for the France international.
Serge Aurier – 7/10 – Provided the assist for Tottenham’s opener and looked energetic and ever-willing to get forward. Can still improve his final ball, but now looks like Pochettino’s first choice at right-back.
Davinson Sanchez – 7/10 – Has stepped up since Toby Alderweireld’s injury and again barely put a foot wrong. Kept Everton new boy Cenk Tosun quiet with another assured display.
Jan Vertonghen – 7/10 – One of the most under-rated defenders in the Premier League. His distribution and reading of the game were again excellent.
Ben Davies – 6/10 – A relatively quiet game by Tottenham’s left-back, with Davies not showcasing the lung-busting forward runs that he has been known for this season. Rarely troubled defensively.
Mousa Dembele – 9/10 – Put in a masterclass in the heart of the Spurs midfield, winning the physical battles and dictating the pace of play. A key cog in Pochettino’s wheel – got to keep him fit.
Eric Dier – 7/10 – Used the ball well and got the better of James McCarthy and Idrissa Gueye in the 50-50s.
Christian Eriksen – 7/10 – Chipped in with the final Tottenham goal and as such usual was always open to receiving the ball. A class act.
Dele Alli – 6/10 – A nice back heel assist for Dele as he set up Eriksen’s goal but the England international flitted in and out of the game. Guilty of coughing up possession on a number of occasions.
Son Heung-min – 9/10 – The South Korean has proven this season that he deserves to be held in the same esteem as Dele and Eriksen. Clinical, hard-working, selfless – and man of the match.
Harry Kane – 8/10 – Can’t stop scoring and in the right place at the right time again to net a Tottenham brace. The team’s attacking talisman, Kane put in another rounded display.
