Tottenham player ratings vs Everton: Midfielder 9/10, attacker 6/10

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.

    • Watch the game again. No doubting his desire and the sublime backheel assist was worth a point by itself, but his loss of possession count was way too high for an 8 or 9.
      His first touch was also Sissoko-esque at times, and there was also a goal miss that needs to be taken into account.
      I’m not a Dele doubter – far from it – but this was not one of his better games.
