Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea played out a 0-0 bore draw at Stamford Bridge this evening, with few clear cut chances for either side. However, the result did send Spurs back to the top of the table.

Let’s take a look at how the individual players got on:

Hugo Lloris – 6 – Stood up when Spurs needed him from that Mason Mount shot. One nervy moment near the end when he failed to claim a ball.

Serge Aurier – 7.5 – Looks to be growing defensively and in tight areas under Jose Mourinho, while also remaining a constant threat going forward.

Joe Rodon – 6 – Looked very nervy for the first 20 minutes but grew into the game as he simplified his job a little. A decent debut but not quite ready to be a consistent starter. Very nervous moment in the 92nd minute when he headed it back to Lloris.

Eric Dier – 6 – Read the game well in the first half, up against a tall Tammy Abraham. Struggled more in the second 45 in that respect. Also made mistakes on the ball in the second half.

Sergio Reguilon – 7.5 – He just looks a real player. Aggressive in the challenge, powerful with the ball at his feet, clever with his timing and choice of pass. Even his one-on-one defending is improving under Mourinho.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 8 – Does what he always does, broke up play, cut off passing lanes, and covered for Reguilon when he went forward. Understated but brilliant.

Moussa Sissoko – 7 – Off the ball, Sissoko is just as superb as Hojbjerg. On the ball, I feel that he overcomplicated it a little with his passing and movement today, but still good.

Tanguy Ndombele – 8 – He just always looks as though he’s about to do something brilliant and often does exactly that. A little less impressive off the ball today though.

Steven Bergwijn – 7 – Worked really hard for the team and got into some nice areas. Unfortunately, he is not quite sharp enough yet to finish those snapshots.

Heung-min Son – 6 – He was rather isolated throughout the match, limiting his involvement to a couple of nice runs. More of a wing-back today.

Harry Kane – 6 – Not too involved today as Spurs didn’t use the ball on the counter-attack that well. However, he did win some vital free-kicks and held it up nicely.

Substitutes:

Giovani Lo Celso – 4 – Didn’t offer too much after coming on, offensively or defensively. Wasted such a good chance at the end.

Ben Davies – N/A

Lucas Moura – N/A
