Tottenham put on an excellent team display in their 4-0 thrashing of Stoke City at White Hart Lane. So how did they do individually?

Hugo Lloris, 8

Saved brilliantly from Peter Crouch at 1-0 and remained calm among some Stoke pressure in a short second half spell.

Eric Dier, 8

Played some beautiful forward passes for Dele Alli, and looked far more assured at the back than he did on Thursday night.

Toby Alderweireld, 8

A standard Alderweireld performance until the Belgian was forced off holding his groin in the second half.

Jan Vertonghen, 8

A comfortable, confident 66 minutes before he was substituted for Harry Winks.

Kyle Walker, 7

His attacking intent put Spurs on the front foot from the off. The only thing missing was a final product, just like against Gent.

Victor Wanyama, 8

You can see why he starts every week — he rarely puts a foot wrong. Won almost every 50/50 and brought the ball out from the back effectively.

Mousa Dembele, 7

Controlled the midfield in the first half, but wasn’t exactly challenged. Quietened in the second half. Worth noting he lasted the full 90 minutes for the first time in a while.

Ben Davies, 7

Showed an improvement on his recent displays, particularly with his positional discipline. A little shaky at the back when defending Stoke corners.

Christian Eriksen, 8

Was involved in some superb attacking moves in the first half and kept things neat and tidy after the break. The Stoke players barely got near him.

Dele Alli, 8 

For once it was nice to see Alli without his usual aggressive edge. Showed excellent footwork throughout and a cool head to put Tottenham 4-0 up before half-time.

Harry Kane, 10

Scored his third hat-trick in nine games and looked fitter and sharper than he has in weeks. His touch and pass for Alli’s goal were both sublime.

Substitutes,

Kevin Wimmer, 7

Had to immediately deal with some troublesome Stoke set pieces. Got through that spell and looked comfortable from then on.

Harry Winks, 7

Passed the ball with conviction and took up some dangerous positions only to see a couple of shots blocked.

Heung-Min Son, N/A

Brought on right at the end so that Kane could get a standing ovation.
