Tottenham Hotspur managed to get back on track with a win over Sheffield United this afternoon after a disappointing draw against Fulham.

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

Hugo Lloris – 8 – Not a whole lot for the Frenchman to do today but he never seems to make a mistake when called upon. Dominant from corners today.

Serge Aurier – 9 – He was up and down that right flank all day long. Not only was his early goal much-needed, but he was a constant attacking threat in behind too.

Joe Rodon – 8 – A couple of early nervous moments but he definitely grew into the game. Dug Dier out of trouble with some covering in the first half. Seems to have a bit of pace about him too. Overall, an impressive run out for the Welshman.

Eric Dier – 4 – Got done for pace all over the pitch today. The back three system really didn’t suit him being in the middle today. Also lost his man in the box for the Sheffield United goal.

Ben Davies – 7 – It does feel as though left-sided centre-back in a back three is Ben Davies’ best position in a Spurs shirt. Reads the game well and defends consistently.

Sergio Reguilon – 8 – Got up and down well on the left with some driving runs. Wanted to see home more early crosses into the box using that wand of a left foot.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 8.5 – His usual steady performance, this time doing more solo work without Winks or Sissoko to help. Won the ball back a lot to start counters. Ndombele did his part but different kind of player. Good to see Hojbjerg getting an assist too.

Tanguy Ndombele – 10 – Absolutely dictated the game as a deep-lying playmaker today. Kept the ball moving and created the vast majority of attacks. What. A. Goal. This lad is special!

Steven Bergwijn – 7 – Worked hard up there, albeit without much of an end product. Always feels as though he is working up towards some form, then gets rotated out. He was much better in the second half and picked out Ndombele well for the third goal.

Harry Kane – 9.5 – What a player this man is. The goal was the difference Spurs have been missing in recent weeks, making it 2-0. However, his general play is just world-class.

Heung-min Son – 8 – Seems to have lost his shooting boots of late, hitting the post again today. However, I’m sure this will be short-lived as his attacking play and crossing today was incredible.


Lucas Moura – N/A

Carlos Vinicius – N/A

Davinson Sanchez – N/A
