Tottenham head into the break against Dean Smith’s side currently 2-0 ahed courtesy of goals from Dejan Kulusevski and Harry Kane.

Hugo Lloris: Apart from diving for a Rashica effort and a deflected cross, has been a passenger. 6.

Emerson Royal: Has been solid defensively and looking to get forward and support Kulusevski when possible. 6.

Davinson Sanchez: Again starting in place of Romero, has done the basics well. 6.

Eric Dier: A sloppy pass out of defence handed Rashica a shot on goal, thankfully he dragged it wide. 6.

Ben Davies: Has done well defensively, continues to throw his body in the way of shots on goal. Fizzed a shot on goal just before half time. 6.

Ryan Sessegnon: Enjoying his longest run in the Spurs side and is looking more and more assured on the left flank.  6.

Rodrigo Bentancur: Did brilliantly to run in behind the Canaries defence to set up Kulusevksi and got his second assist when he crossed for Kane. 7.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg: Was given the ball on a plate by Kulusevski, got his first touch wrong and blazed over the bar when he should have hit the target.  Made up for it with his ball over the top which released Bentancur for the opening goal. 7.

Dejan Kulusevski: Back in the side in place of Moura.  Did brilliantly on the counter attack to beat two players and tee up Hojbjerg.  Broke the deadlock when he finished from Bentancur’s pass. 7.

Heung-min Son: Still in with the chance of winning the golden boot, but yet to get on the scoresheet, was picked out by Hojbjerg but scuffed his effort. 6.

Harry Kane: Got himself on the scoresheet when he headed home Bentancur’s cross from a Krul error. 7.
