Tottenham secured a third successive Premier League win to cement their place in the top four ahead of a huge Champions League second leg against Juventus next week. Here’s how we rated each Spur in the 2-0 victory over Huddersfield at Wembley.
Hugo Lloris: 7
Only had a handful of saves to make but he produced a fine stop to deny Tom Ince and prevent a Huddersfield equaliser just a minute before Heung-Min Son’s second goal.
Serge Aurier: 8
Aurier is really settling into his role and his crossing was a real threat, once finding Son in the box but the South Korean could not find his feet to seal his hat-trick.
Davinson Sanchez: 7
Made some important interceptions and tackles but got caught out by the speed of Ince when he burst through on goal and almost levelled shortly before Son’s second.
Jan Vertonghen: 7
Returned to form immediately after a short spell out with injury, and had the better of Steve Mounie throughout the game especially in the air, where the Frenchman is dangerous.
Ben Davies: 7
Made a really good last-ditch tackle in the box late in the second half as the Terriers looked to get something from the game.
Eric Dier: 8
Switched into midfield after playing at centre-back against Crystal Palace last week, and continued to showcase the kind of versatility that makes him indispensable to the team. Made more passes than anyone else on the field.
Mousa Dembele: 7
Made fewer passes and was less explosive than usual but did little wrong in the game.
Dele Alli: 7
Set up Son for his opening goal with a nicely-weighted through ball and made two other chances as he continued to be a thorn in the side of opponents.
Christian Eriksen: 7
Should have had two goals of his own; the first a free-kick that deflected onto the outside of the post and the second a great chance from inside the box that he sent straight at the goalkeeper.
Heung-Min Son: 9
Son was the star of the show with two good goals that took his tally up to 15 for the season and 44 since joining the club in 2015. His all-round game was excellent and he has become a crucial goalscorer for Spurs.
Harry Kane: 7
Stuttered in front of goal but Kane provided the superb cross from deep for Son’s second goal – and it was pinpoint accurate.
Erik Lamela: 6
Lively after coming on for the final 20 minutes and forced a save from keeper Jonas Lossl after twisting and turning in the box. Moussa Sissoko and Lucas Moura were later brought on as well.
