PLAYER RATINGS: Bournemouth 1-4 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Dom Le Roy

Hugo Lloris – 6 – Did not have much to do in fairness. He did well in the opening minutes to put Stanislas off from scoring when the striker only managed to hit the bar.

Serge Aurier – 6 – Another frustrating performance from the Ivory Coast international. His crossing ability means his end product very rarely finds a Spurs player, thankfully once of his attempts did eventually find Dele Alli to level the score. In typical unpredictable fashion, he scored our fourth with a late header.

Davinson Sanchez – 5 – Partly at fault for Bournemouth’s goal and looked nervy at times with some panicked clearances.

Jan Vertonghen – 7 – Felt sorry for the big Belgian having to play in a back four with three others who failed to cover themselves in glory. Once again, Vertonghen was the shining light in defence.

Danny Rose – 5 – Still looking way off the pace and is definitely behind Ben Davies in the pecking order. Could have done more defensively for Bournemouth’s goal and was replaced on 80 minutes with a slight injury.

Victor Wanyama – 6 – Made just his third Premier League start of the season and looked off the pace.

Mousa Dembele – 6 – Below his usual standard of performance, not enough driving runs forward. Bournemouth did well to stop him from getting on the ball.

Dele Alli – 7 – Great to see him back on the scoresheet, came off before the end.

Christian Eriksen – 7 – Worked hard, his usual creative self. Played a lovely ball through to Son for Tottenham’s third goal.  Makes the game look so easy at times.

Heung-min Son – 8 – The South Korean stepped up once again to continue his rich vein of form in front of goal with a brace.

Harry Kane – 6 – Suffered an ankle injury early on, initial reports suggest it could be ligament damage.


Erik Lamela – 6 – Came on early for the injured Harry Kane. Another typical Lamela display, plenty of flicks and tricks but needs to make more impact in the final third.

Moussa Sissoko and Kieran Tripper 6 – Both came on as late replacements for Rose and Dele.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. >Erik Lamela – 6 – Came on early for the injured Harry Kane. Another typical Lamela display, plenty of flicks and tricks but needs to make more impact in the final third.

    Also lost the ball on numerous occasions.

    I guess the score of 6 for his goals and assists? Maybe for his wonderful link-up play? Maybe for his fouls? He is a second rate player out of his depth. It will not be long and he will cost us severely. Maybe he still needs time and nurturing and will show what he can do. Maybe another four years.

    I see Sissoko gets a 6 as well. He was far more effective than Lamela. Sheer bias.

    • -Stanislas was not Sanchez’s marking responsibility; 6 is closer

      -Lamela’s pressure up top (something Alli was unwilling to do) hemmed the Bournemouth counter, his hold up play sprung Aurier for Alli’s goal. 7

  2. Terrible player rating “article.” I’m assuming this is completely opinion based as there is complete bias in this and no objectivity.

    Watch the game again then try and make this player rating list again without any bias and you’ll see it’s much different. How does this even get published on spursweb? No detail after any ratings for an explanation for the rating. Just darts at a board
