Spurs v AFC Wimbledon player ratings

Tottenham are safely through to the fourth round of the FA Cup after beating AFC Wimbledon at Wembley. Here’s how we rated each Spurs player in the 3-0 win. 

Michel Vorm: 7

The Dutchman produced an impressive double save to foil Jimmy Abdou and Liam Trotter, as well as tipping Jonathan Meades’ header over the bar – all with the score at 0-0.

Kieran Trippier: 6

Began the move that led to Harry Kane’s first goal, but defensively he looked uncomfortable at times, particularly when faced with the runs of former Spurs forward Andy Barcham.

Juan Foyth: 7

This was only a fourth start for the young Spurs defender and he looked assured enough both aerially and on the ground, never switching off even when the win was in the bag.

Jan Vertonghen: 8

With Wimbledon content to sit deep, Vertonghen was almost operating at left-back – and he was solid throughout, as well as wrapping up the game with an eye-catching drive into the far corner.

Kyle Walker-Peters: 7

Always seemed eager to get forward and supplied the assist for Kane’s second goal, but he did his fair share of defensive work as well.

Moussa Sissoko: 7

Appeared keen to banish memories of his poor performance against West Ham and he went some way towards doing that with a series of counter-attacking runs, including the cross that set up Kane’s opener.

Victor Wanyama: 6

Understandably, Wanyama still looked somewhat rusty – some of his passing was wayward at times and a clumsy challenge on Darius Charles earned him a yellow card.

Mousa Dembele: 6

Unlucky not to break the deadlock, hitting the post just after half-time, but he was overly casual at times, delivering balls into the Wimbledon box that were easily cleared.

Erik Lamela: 7

Displayed good movement, linking Spurs’ attacking play effectively. But he squandered a golden opportunity to score with an inaccurate chip late in the first half.

Fernando Llorente: 6

The Spurs centre-forward made an efficient job of holding the ball up and creating chances for team-mates, but didn’t look quite so sharp when presented with a sight of goal himself.

Harry Kane: 8

Although Kane seemed to have left his shooting boots in the dressing room during the first half, he took his two goals adeptly and was only denied another hat-trick by George Long’s save. Another fine display.

Heung-Min Son: 7

Made an immediate impact after replacing Llorente for the final half-hour, running into space on the right and almost continuing his Wembley scoring streak with a deflected shot onto the post.

Dele Alli: 7

Predictably booed by the Wimbledon fans because of his Milton Keynes connections, Alli seemed to relish the jeers and provided more attacking threat after he came on for Sissoko 25 minutes from time.
