Hugo Lloris – The Frenchman got injured off Kyle Walker’s challenge really early in the game and was stretchered off.
Eric Dier – The young centre-back was not convincing at all today as he was bullied by the Leicester attackers in the air and by the opposition defenders in set plays. He shared the blame for all 3 Leicester goals. He should have got an assist but Chadli put his great cross over the bar.
Danny Rose – He made some well-timed tackles and interceptions that saved his team but he looked vulnerable all game long. Every time he pushed forward, he left acres of space behind that Nugent took advantage of and he gave away cheap free kicks later in the game. He did well to earn the penalty that was tucked in by Kane.
Jan Vertonghen – The Belgian looks further away from his 2012 self with every game as he was embarrassed by measly Leicester attackers today. He lost his man in every set piece and made judgement errors that led to Leicester chances. He capped off a miserable game with an embarrassing header attempt that led to the Nugent’s goal.
Kyle Walker – He shared the worst defender of the day award with Vertonghen as he had a nightmare of a game himself. He started his game by injuring arguably the most important player of his team. He was caught out of position countless times and looked nervous and vulnerable in the 90 minutes. His one contribution to the game was the cross that led to Kane’s second goal.
Nabil Bentaleb – He was his usual self as he provided energy, drive and tenaciousness in the midfield. However, he had errors that caused problems for his defence and he was at fault for Morgan’s equaliser.
Christian Eriksen – He was one of the rare bright actors for Spurs today as he caused problems for Leicester defence every time he touched the ball. He looked for the right pass when he was on the ball but there wasn’t enough movement from the wingers. His brilliant run and great shot ended up hitting the post.
Ryan Mason – He played a lot better than he did last week but he still left a lot to desire. He made some tackles in the middle of the park to get him going but he never got into the game. His passing was decent enough but his team needed more of him going forward.
Nacer Chadli – The worst player on the pitch for the second game running as he missed two sitters that would have put away the game. He did not put a foot right in the game as he was easily pushed off the ball and he could put a single cross in the box.
Andros Townsend – The English winger did not prove Roy Hodgson right as he had a forgettable game today. He was quiet in the time he was on the pitch and his only contributions were couple of fancy flicks and the pass to Walker that led to Kane’s second goal.
Harry Kane – He was always at the right place at the right time as he scored two poacher’s goals in the first half and tucked away a penalty in the second that completed his hat-trick. He did much more than scoring as he was the focal point of his team’s attacks with his hold-up and link-up play.
Michel Vorm – He had a tidy game after replacing Lloris early on even though he conceded three goals. He was commending in his box and made some decent saves to deny Leicester.
Paulinho– He helped his team tidy up in the midfield and provided a lot of energy. His pass to Eriksen led to Schlupp’s own goal late on.
Mousa Dembele – He made a late introduction to see the game off and he provided strength and composure in the midfield.
