Tottenham booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to three second half goals against AFC Wimbledon at Wembley.

A brace from Harry Kane and a rare Jan Vertonghen strike was enough to see our name in the hat for the next round.  Here are our player ratings.

Michel Vorm – 7 – An important save in the first half when he tipped the ball onto the crossbar while the score was still 0-0.

Kieran Trippier – 6 – Had an influence in Harry Kane’s first goal.  His end product was disappointing but did improve as the game wore on.

Jan Vertonghen – 8 – Super Jan netted his first goal for Spurs since October 2013, a strike from distance which sent the Spurs faithful mental.  Only what he deserves for being Tottenham’s Mr Consistent this season.

Juan Foyth – 6 – Rarely gets an opportunity and will be disappointed with his display.  Poor in possession especially in the first half but admittedly needs more regular football. 

Kyle Walker-Peters – 7 – We rarely see KWP in action, despite his Man of the Match display at Newcastle in August.  The right-back had a solid game and played his part in the second goal when his shot which was deflected allowed Kane to bag his brace.

Mousa Dembele – 7 – Some valuable match fitness for the big Belgian.  Even managed to venture forward and saw his shot cannon off the post.

Victor Wanyama – 7 – Great to see Victor back in action, was his usual combative self in the middle of the park.

Moussa Sissoko – 7 – Was equally useful in both attack and defence, had his usual moments but did set up Kane for the first goal.

Erik Lamela – 7 – Seems to be growing in confidence following his injury hell.  Always looks to get forward and create opportunities, we’ve missed this.

Harry Kane – 8 – Was surprised to see his name on the teamsheet, but as usual managed to find the back of the net.  Skippered the team in the absence of Lloris and a couple of goals will only help going into the match against Everton.

Fernando Llorente – 5 – Disappointing from the big Spaniard.  His lack of mobility is an issue when we’re trying to stretch teams.  He’s becoming more and more a target to play off and nothing else.


Heung-min Son – 7 – Came on for Llorente and was his usual industrious self, full of energy and helped to change the tide of the game, nearly bagged himself a goal late on, only to see his effort hit the post.

Dele Alli – 6 – Came in for some stick from the AFC Wimbledon fans due to his MK Dons past.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou – 6 – A late cameo from the winger and should have had a penalty awarded to him.
