PLAYER RATINGS: Tottenham Hotspur 0 – 0 Swansea

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Dom Le Roy

Hugo Lloris – 6 – He was mostly a spectator for the game as he was not tested by Swansea at all. He was involved in the build-up from the back and he managed his duties well.                  

Kieran Trippier – 6 – A decent enough performance from Tottenham’s second string right-back. He started on the right and switched on the left in the second half. He was calm and collected in the build-up but his crosses did not make any impact in the attack.

Toby Alderweireld – 7 – Shared the man of the match award for Tottenham with Jan Vertonghen in my opinion. He was urgent in the attack and calm at the back as the introduction of Sanchez into the team seems to benefit him the most.

Jan Vertonghen – 7 – He provided much of the same stuff as Alderweireld for Tottenham as his runs with the ball forward started a number of attacks. His shots and final passes left a lot to be desired though and he needs to find his touch soon in this new attacking role.

Davinson Sanchez – 7 – A very physical and imposing figure at the back, Sanchez played his role perfectly for Tottenham today. He allowed the other two center-backs to venture forward and cleaned up the Swansea counters with ease.

Eric Dier – 6 – He was mostly an unimportant figure in the side today as he linked up the play with simple passes and provided some muscle in the midfield.

Moussa Sissoko – 6 – A very energetic performance from the midfielder as he was full of running and power. His final passes and shots still looked below standard but he should have had an assist for Kane today.

Christian Eriksen – 6 – Tottenham’s main creator had a subdued game today with Swansea parking the bus. He still managed to find the pockets of spaces he loves to operate in, but his teammates did not provide enough options for him.

Dele Alli – 5 – A very poor performance from Dele as his touches in and around the box broke up many promising Spurs attacks. He was frustrated by Swansea defenders as he was fouled time and time again.

Heung-Min Son – 6 – After the game against Dortmund midweek, the Korean’s confidence seemed sky high today. He started as the left wing-back but moved to the second striker role in the second half. He was the only Spurs attacker who looked to run behind the Swansea defence, and he was wrongly subbed off for Llorente late on.

Harry Kane – 6 – The striker had an off day today in front of the goal as he hit the bar from six yards out and missed a few half chances. His other aspects of the game were still there but it seemed like he was fatigued after his sensational performance versus Dortmund.


Serge Aurier – 6 – A great cameo from the Ivorian Coast international as he gave the Swansea defence all kinds of problems on the right side. His crosses should have been better but his attacking intent was appreciated nonetheless. He should have had a penalty late in the game but Mike Dean missed the call.

Fernando Llorente – N/R

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I think Aurier deserved a 7. He looked very dangerous and will be in the goals soon. Dier kept frustratingly hitting balls long when we were on the attack, and where is Dembele? I take it he is injured?

  2. I thought Son was our best player by far and yet only got a 6. Sanchez looked rather uncomfortable today, yet got a 7. It looks like teams know how to play against us at "home" this season. Just stick 11 defenders on the pitch.

  3. how on earth did you give sissoko a 6.he has to be the worse player in our team he brings to our game spose to be a power house full of running.all he does is pass the ball back or sideways hes frightend to take any one on.f……g f…..g f….g USELESS.
