Hugo Lloris – For the second Premier League game in a row, the Frenchman got beaten from a ridiculous angle in Swansea’s first goal. However, he was not tested at all until late on where he made a world class save to secure all 3 points for his team.
Kyle Walker – The right-back played a really important role for Spurs as he was full of energy. He attacked the Swansea back line from start to finish even though his defending was underwhelming at times.
Danny Rose – A great outing for the left-back as he made the left wing his own. He made no mistakes in the time he was on the pitch and provided the assist for Chadli’s goal.
Eric Dier – The young English centre-back helped by Swansea’s lack of attacking power but he was composed when necessary and good on the ball. He was partially at fault when the Spurs back line fell asleep to play Ki on for Swansea’s first goal.
Jan Vertonghen – The Belgian was decent on the night as he made good clearances and interceptions to keep his team going and preventing any danger. He should have done much better for Swansea’s first goal and he struggled to handle Sigurdsson at times. However, he made up for his mistakes with his solid display.
Nabil Bentaleb – The Algerian produced another solid all-around display, pulled the strings in the midfield with his strength and passing.
Christian Eriksen – The Dane returned to his old form as he found the pockets behind the midfield that he craves. His movement was immaculate as he was everywhere on the pitch. His great work created the second goal and he created danger with his set-pieces.
Ryan Mason – He struggled at the start of the game to control the midfield but he grew into the game. He found his touch and his passing kick-started a lot of Spurs attacks. He capped off a great night for him with his first Premier League goal.
Andros Townsend – The young winger finally delivered a great performance that fans expect from him. He was never predictable as he owned the Swansea left-back Neil Taylor with his passing, trickery and pace. He scored a terrific solo counter-attack goal that he deserved.
Nacer Chadli – He started Tottenham’s game perfectly with a first-class finish but he faded as the game went on. He did not attack the opposition’s right-back enough to be dangerous. However, he contributed to Spurs attacks with his presence and passing.
Harry Kane – The in-form striker couldn’t score tonight as he had a pretty quiet night in front of the goal. He never had a clear-cut chance but his passing and link-up play was decent enough. Also, even on a quiet night, his work rate was at an impressive level.
Moussa Dembele – Came on for Townsend and used his strength to carry the ball forward and made some smart passes.
Roberto Soldado – The Spaniard came on for Kane and was unlucky not to score. His header was really close but he missed a good opportunity later on.
Ben Davies – He came on for Rose late on and brought energy to the back line. He was put under pressure by Swansea late in the game but held his ground and made important clearances.
