STAR PLAYER

Dele Alli. The excellent Hugo Lloris is unfortunate to miss out, but Alli capped an already typically-busy performance with the goal that not only inspired victory when play was finely balanced, but that will be remembered as one of the finest of the season.

MOMENT OF THE MATCH

Dele Alli’s goal. The midfielder, 19, was playing League One football only last season, but he is already an England international, and might legitimately claim to be world class, having scored a goal of which Zinedine Zidane, Paul Scholes, Robin van Persie, and other masterful vollyers of the ball would have been proud.

VIEW FROM THE BENCH

Mauricio Pochettino, admirably, gambled in sacrificing Eric Dier for Nacer Chadli when his team were 1-0 down, and it paid off. So far this season he can do little wrong.

  1. Nacer Bentaleb?
    Son deserves an 8 as well as Alli imo.
    Son full of the closing down and chasing we see from Lamela.
    I felt that Alli was pretty poor in the first half out on the left, but came back to life after brought back into the centre.
    Star man was Poch in this game. Brilliant changes were key to winning the game.

  2. Terrible ratings. Did you even watch the game. Dembele had a 97% pass completion rating with 7 tackles and he gets a 6? Eriksen created 9 chances with an assisit, two tackles and a 86% pass completion rating and you give him a 6. Meanwhile, you give Son a 7 who had 1 key pass, 85% pass completion, 1 tack;e and two shots and you gave Dier the same rating as Demebele and Eriksen when he was fairly poor today. Kane gets a 8 even though besides his header was fairly poor for most of the game. I know the English boys have a lot of fan boys, but at least watch the game before you write your ratings.
