Tottenham quickly recovered from an early injury to Harry Kane and hit Millwall for six at White Hart Lane. So how did they do individually? (Note: No rating if a player was on the pitch for less than 20 minutes).

Michel Vorm, 7

Can’t recall him having anything to do. Distributed the ball with his usual coolness.

Eric Dier, 7

Shaken by a couple of early long balls down his side from the visitors but soon settled and was rarely troubled.

Toby Alderweireld, 8

Stood in the middle of defence and held up a big banner that read: ‘YOU SHALL NOT PASS’. Defensive wizardry.

Jan Vertonghen, 7

Wasn’t as buccaneering as he was against Everton but stayed composed at the back and moved the ball forward whenever possible.

Kieran Trippier, 8

Wasted a couple of early chances to cross with bad first touches. Grew into the game and made a big contribution, including a stupendous pass for Son’s second goal.

Victor Wanyama, 8

Held up a second ‘YOU SHALL NOT PASS’ banner. Passed the ball beautifully at times, too.

Harry Winks, 9

A performance exemplified by one moment; Winks cleverly turned out of trouble and sprayed a perfect pass out to Trippier in the build up to the fourth goal. A controlled, collected display.

Ben Davies, 7

His final product could have been better but he showed plenty of adventure and willingness to get forward, just as he did against Everton.

Dele Alli, 8

Fluffed his lines with a couple of difficult chances but, as usual, got his goal by being in the right place at the right time.

Heung-Min Son, 9

Started carelessly, ironically miscontrolling a simple pass before finding the top corner for the second goal. Took his second excellently and set up Janssen’s goal before completing his hat-trick at the death.

Harry Kane, N/A

Substituted within minutes after turning his right ankle.

Substitutes

Christian Eriksen, 9

Replaced Kane early on and settled the nerves with a fine opener. Controlled the game with ease and created the fourth goal with an incisive pass.

Vincent Janssen, N/A

Mobbed by his teammates after scoring his first Spurs goal from open play — he took it well. Probably should have scored another but it didn’t really matter.

Moussa Sissoko, N/A

Came on with 15 minutes to go and instigated the counter attack for the final goal by bursting through the Millwall midfield.
