Tottenham Hotspur ran riot today at the new stadium as they smashed four goals past Crystal Palace in a rematch from the game that opened the ground.

Let’s take a look at how the players performed today in the North London sun:

Hugo Lloris – 6

Had very little to do, but kept the ball moving well and made a couple of smart stops.

Danny Rose – 7

While on paper it looks as if he didn’t contribute as much as Serge Aurier on the other side, Rose was tasked with marking Zaha today and he did a good job on keeping him relatively quiet.

Jan Vertonghen – 7 

Defended well and always looked for a positive and incisive ball forward through the lines. Good to have him back.

Toby Alderweireld – 9

Not only was he a brick wall in defence, but he also set up the opener for Son with a delightful ball and was spraying it around the pitch all day.

Serge Aurier – 8

A brilliant first game back. The surprise addition to the starting XI set up two of the first three goals for Spurs.

Harry Winks – 7

Constantly moving and looking for forward passes through to the likes of Eriksen, Lamela, Son, and Kane.

Moussa Sissoko – 8

Played more aggressive than Winks and broke through the lines time and time again to start attacks and breakaways.

Erik Lamela – 6.5

Lamela was pretty quiet apart from his goal today but always works hard and closes down well. Gives away too many needless fouls though.

Christian Eriksen – 7

Again, not his most active game in terms of goals and assists as the majority of play came down the wings, but he shifted the ball well.

Heung Min Son – 9.5

What a clinical performance from the South Korean today. Scored two and played a part in the breakaway for Lamela’s goal too. Up there with his best games in the Prem for Spurs.

Harry Kane – 8

An underrated performance from Harry today. Not among the goals but he held the ball up well, brought others into play, and assisted Lamela’s goal with a superb cross.

Substitutes – 

Tanguy Ndombele – 6

Came on and had some nice moments on the ball, but understandably looked a little rusty too.

Ben Davies – 5

Came on to provide some fresh legs at left-back and to give Rose a rest. Nothing too eventful but good to see him back out there.

Lucas Moura – N/A
