Tottenham put in their most complete team performance of the season as they thrashed West Brom 4-0 at White Hart Lane. But how did they do individually?

Hugo Lloris, 7

Had one save to make — a miraculous one at that — but it was offside anyway. Distributed the ball well.

Eric Dier, 7

Barely noticed him as Tottenham were so untroubled, particularly down his side. Easily dealt with a slightly improved West Brom after the break.

Toby Alderweireld, 8

Likewise, Toby had very little to do at the back. Played some beautiful diagonals and didn’t let the Baggies’ belated pressing trouble him. Oozed class and composure, as usual.

Jan Vertonghen, 8

Imperious defensively and offensively until turning his ankle midway through the second half. The Belgian looked distraught — hopefully not as bad as it looked.

Kyle Walker, 9

Possibly Walker’s best performance in his best season as a Spurs player. Assisted the third goal with as good a cross as you’ll see, and was involved in just about everything the hosts did right.

Victor Wanyama, 8

Shielded the back four to his usual standards and was superb going forward, notably providing a key pass in the move for the opener.

Mousa Dembele, 8

He was clearly in the mood from the off. Utterly majestic and impossible to knock of the ball. There’s no one like him when he’s on his game.

Danny Rose, 8

Was the most involved player for much of the first half, getting a number of crosses in and popping up on the right to create the second goal. Full of his typical fighting spirit throughout.

Christian Eriksen, 8

Unfortunate to have his goal taken away from him because of a double deflection. Continued his much improved form with some incisive passing (assisting the opener) and key link-up play.

Dele Alli, 9

Has been earning 9s for his goalscoring exploits of late, but this week he gets one for his general play, the majority of which was immaculate. A display summed up by the divine chip that set up Tottenham’s fourth.

Harry Kane, 10

After the birth of his first child last weekend, Kane is producing in more ways than one (sorry). He scored three — it could have been six if not for Ben Foster — and led the line near-perfectly.

Substitutes

Ben Davies, 7

Replaced Vertonghen in a position we might see Davies fill for the next few games depending on Kevin Wimmer’s availability. Wasn’t given much of a test.

Harry Winks, N/A

Replaced Dembele on 83 minutes when the 4-0 scoreline was already wrapped up.

Heung-Min Son, N/A

Brought on so the fans could give the departing Kane a standing ovation.
