Spurs player ratings vs Bournemouth – A first away win for Postecoglou

Tottenham Hotspur secured their first away win of the new Premier League season following a 2-0 victory at Bournemouth courtesy of goals from James Maddison and Dejan Kulusevski.

Here’s how we rated the Spurs players following the win on the south coast.

Guglielmo Vicario: Had a relatively comfortable first half with just a couple of saves to make. The second half was even easier. 6.

Pedro Porro: Entrusted to play a second game in a row with Royal watching on from the bench. A really solid display from the Spaniard. 7.

Cristian Romero: The vice-captain had a solid game, relatively unnoticed which just goes to show how he went about the game. 7.

Micky van de Ven: An assured performance from the Dutchman, who is settling nicely into the backline alongside Romero. Made a nice sliding tackle in the second half. 7.

Destiny Udogie: Did brilliantly well to stop the ball from going out of play and cut it back into the path of Kulusevski. He is going to be some player for Spurs. Worryingly went down in some pain uncontested after playing the ball back to Vicario. 8.

Pape Matar Sarr: A really good first half from the Senegalese which saw him provide a deft assist for Maddison, replaced on 58 minutes by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. 7.

Yves Bissouma: Showed he was half-human when he lost his feet for half a second in the build-up to his yellow card. His first half was impressive and was taken off on 72 minutes. 7.

James Maddison: Pulled the strings and got his first goal for the club to open the scoring. Maybe could have had a second after the break when he dragged his shot wide. Replaced by Lo Celso on 72 minutes. 9.

Dejan Kulusevski: The relief on his face when he scored his goal said it all. Deki is such a confidence player and needed that to hopefully kick on. 6.

Richarlison: Missed a brilliant chance in the first half after taking one too many touches and his lack of confidence was clear to see when he trod on the ball and his frustration led to a booking. Hooked off after 58 minutes for Ivan Perisic. 4.

Heung-min Son: Had little to feed off in the first half. Looked more alive once again when he played centrally in place of Richarlison, played a nice reverse pass into Udogie in the build-up to the second goal. 6.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg: Ange is certainly using his game management when he’s bringing on the Dane to help protect a lead to sit in front of the centre backs and it is paying off nicely. 6.

Ivan Perisic: The more advanced role on the left is certainly suiting him more than the wing-back role he was asked to play under Conte. Booked for a push. Came within inches of scoring in injury time. 6.

Giovani Lo Celso: A first Premier League appearance of the season for Gio. Hopefully, he gets some more minutes at Fulham in midweek. 6.

Oliver Skipp: Came off the bench with just under twenty minutes to go, which he may have to get used to with the flourishing Sarr/Bissouma axis. 6.

Ben Davies: The Welshman was a late replacement for Udogie. 6.
