PLAYER RATINGS: Spurs 1-1 Burnley

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Dom Le Roy

Hugo Lloris – 7 – He worked hard to see out the game for his team as his brilliant save from Brady and his last ditch tackle on Wood kept Spurs in the lead. He could have done nothing to save Wood’s equaliser however as he was let down by his defence.

Kieran Trippier – 3 – Tottenham’s defence with him as the right back never looked safe for one second as he was repeatedly caught high up the pitch. This was especially the case when Burnley was chasing the game and the equalizer came from his terrible mistake. He also did not provide much going forward and gave away possession needlessly on many occasions.

Toby Alderweireld – 6 – The Belgian looked solid enough with some important tackles and aerial battles. However, he was at the fault in Burnley’s equalizer as well when he failed to clear the through ball.

Jan Vertonghen – 7 – He was the better of the centre-backs as he was adventurous on the ball and solid at the back against Burnley’s strikers.

Ben Davies – 6 – He was better than his full-back partner but that is not a huge compliment. His runs forward did not provide any chances for his team and his deliveries could have been better. He was lucky that Burnley found a lot of joy on Trippier’s side as he did not look solid at the back.

Eric Dier – 6 – He was in the midfield in the first half and at the back in the second half as he showed his versatility. His passing and link up play were okay and he did his bit to keep out Burnley.

Mousa Dembele – 7 – Another solid game from the Belgian as he battled with Burnley’s midfielders all game long and came out on top almost every time. His dribbling and passing were quite impressive, but he could not manage to open Burnley’s tight defence.

Christian Eriksen – 6 – An average game by the Dane’s standards as he could not provide the key passes in the final third. He also missed a glorious opportunity when Sissoko played him through.

Dele Alli – 7 – Had a very similar game to Eriksen but gets a higher grade for his goal. He was lively in the final third and showed off his skills multiple times but Burnley’s compact defence kept him at bay for most of the game.

Heung-Min Son – 5 – A very poor performance from the South Korean as he provided next to nothing in the attacking third. He had opportunities to run at the defence but chose the safe options at every turn.

Harry Kane – 6 – The August curse is very much real as the striker missed chance after chance in the second half. He should have buried at least two goals but his shots were either blocked by the defence or saved by Heaton.

Moussa Sissoko – 6 – A very encouraging game from the Frenchman as he provided some key passes and carried his team up the pitch.

Harry Winks – N/R

Davinson Sanchez – N/R

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Trippier -3 but he is the better crosser than Kyle Walker so we shouldn’t be worried ? i was also very impressed by his continuous back pass, inability to go past a player and out of position play but that one cross into the box today must leave Walker envious.
