Hugo Lloris – 6
It was another eventful game for the Frenchman as he combined great moments with confusing ones. He almost gifted Cardiff the equalizer when he refused to come out of his goal on a through ball which showed his lack of confidence at the minute. However, he swept away a dangerous chance later on in the game and had a great stop from a Morrison header in the second half.
Midfielder Eric Dier scored his first Premier League goal in 18 months for Tottenham Hotspur after just eight minutes in what looked like being a comfortable home win against Cardiff City at Wembley, but it turned out to be hard going for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Neil Warnock’s side would not just roll over, even when going down to ten men with Joe Ralls sent off for a reckless challenge on Lucas Moura after 59 minutes. The Welsh side had their opportunities to level, even hitting the Spurs post at one stage when Lloris palmed a shot onto the upright.
In the first half superb defending from Toby Alderweireld also denied the visitors.
Spurs got over the line in the end though to move up into third place in the table with Chelsea playing on Sunday.
