We may just be seven games into the new season, but we have already been given a chance to assess who are going to be big players for Tottenham this season.

Let’s take a look at how everyone has done so far:

Hugo Lloris – 9 – His best form in a Tottenham shirt in many years.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 5 – Failed in his chance to impress against Leicester City.

Kyle Walker-Peters – 6.5 – Has performed about as well as I had expected, but looks a long way off first choice.

Serge Aurier – 8 – Has done wonderfully since coming back into the first team, but can he keep it up?

Davinson Sanchez – 4 – Looked sloppy at centre-back and the less said about his right-back skills the better.

Toby Alderweireld – 7 – His usual steady self but a few errors have crept in which has led to a lack of clean sheets.

Jan Vertonghen – 6 – Dropped for the first few games and has failed to get going ever since.

Danny Rose – 7.5 – Always one of Tottenham’s best and most passionate performers.

Ben Davies – 6 – Played one game and struggled to deal with the pace against Olympiacos.

Tanguy Ndombele – 7.5 – I have been impressed with some of his initial performances, even if they are still a way from those in a Lyon shirt last year.

Harry Winks – 10 – Tottenham’s best player by a country mile.

Moussa Sissoko – 8 – Always consistent and powerful on the ball for Spurs, an underrated player every week.

Victor Wanyama – 4 – Came on against Leicester and let the side down.

Oliver Skipp – 5 – I expected the odd start for him in the first few games, but he has failed to even get a decent number of minutes. Only a matter of time though.

Dele Alli – 5 – Has looked far from his best yet again. Hopefully, some game time after his injury will see him return to the form we know and love.

Erik Lamela – 9 – The surprise package for Spurs. Maybe this is what an injury-free Lamela looks like?

Christian Eriksen – 6.5 – Shows flashes of brilliance but seems to be lacking an element of drive and consistency.

Giovani Lo Celso – 6 – Looked to be coming along nicely and working towards his first start when injury hit.

Lucas Moura – 7 – Always ready to step up off the bench or in rotation games for the Lilywhites, even if he lacks the consistency to be a starter.

Heung Min Son – 8 – Fast becoming one of the best players at the club.

Harry Kane – 7.5 – Scoring plenty of goals and still looks to have a lot of room for improvement this season. Big things to come.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Winks is not the best player by a country mile (maybe you think he has been so far this season). Too many times opposition players run past him, he can’t press and he always seems to pass sideways rather than forwards. His attitude that comes across in interviews is one of too much hubris and over-estimation in his own ability. I don’t think he helps the team with the style we have grown accustomed to and although many commentators seem to be always raving about him because of his stats, the reality is that we have not been playing as well as we have been in the past without him.
