Opinion: Tottenham player ratings from the impressive 3-0 win over Leeds United


Tottenham Hotspur got back to winning ways in style this afternoon in North London, putting three past Leeds United without reply.

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

Hugo Lloris – 7 – Not a whole lot to do between the sticks but made some routine saves and no real mistakes today.

Matt Doherty – 4 – Definitely growing into his new right-back role but still looks a bit of a liability in defence at times, not tracking his runners in behind. Shot himself in the foot with that red card just as he seemed to have overtaken Serge Aurier at right-back.

Toby Alderweireld – 9 – Not only does Toby read the game better than anyone in a Spurs shirt, getting himself in to block key chances, but he also scored the crucial third goal.

Eric Dier – 8.5 – Dier was a real dominant presence in the back line today, not only winning headers and blocking chances, but also stepping out and starting attacks.

Ben Davies – 8 – A very steady performance from the Welshman. It’s always defending first with Davies, then taking risks comes later. We need someone like that in open games.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 8.5 – Spotted danger incredibly well today, getting his body in the way, making tackles, and also pushing high up the pitch. A great display.

Harry Winks – 9 – Winks was in there today to play ball. He pushed so high up the pitch because Spurs knew that Leeds would make mistakes. When they did, Winks intercepted and started the counter. Not only that, but his general play was excellent.

Tanguy Ndombele – 7 – One of his quieter games in recent history, but Ndombele got through a lot of work off the ball. Comes alive with the ball at his feet.

Steven Bergwijn – 8 – This lad is starting to look so sharp. When Mourinho lets him attack in a front three, Bergwijn is as good as anyone. He just needs to work on that final shot and final pass, but that will come with game time. Did well to win the penalty too.

Harry Kane – 9 – Kane was in the mood today. With such an open game, he knew that he would have the time and space to drop back and dictate play. He did so efficiently, assisting Son’s goal and tapping home a penalty of his own.

Heung-min Son – 9.5 – Couldn’t ask for much more from Son today. He made those crucial runs in behind all day long, then stepped up with a goal and assist when Spurs needed to kill the game.


Moussa Sissoko – 6 – Came on to see out the game as a more defensively-minded midfielder.

Lucas Moura – N/A

Carlos Vinicius – N/A
