After an impressive opening 45 minutes, Tottenham had their fair share of hairy moments in the second half of their Premier League win over Southampton at White Hart Lane. So how did they do individually?

Hugo Lloris, 6

Didn’t have many saves to make and could do little about the Saints goal. His kicking was inconsistent at best.

Eric Dier, 6

Booked early for a rash foul and looked a little shaky when Spurs were under the cosh. Made a couple of last ditch tackles in dangerous situations.

Toby Alderweireld, 6

Defended well for the most part but his long range passes, bar one occasion, were inaccurate and he made a rare mistake for the Southampton goal.

Jan Vertonghen, 7

The visitors found it difficult to get past him, and he was the most composed of the defensive players when Tottenham were on the back foot.

Kyle Walker, 6

Combined effectively with Eriksen in the first half, but his touched seemed a little off. Dealt with Nathan Redmond’s threat after the break but that meant he couldn’t get forward.

Victor Wanyama, 7

Gave the ball away more than once in midfield, but covered plenty of ground and played his part in seeing out the result, especially when Mousa Dembele tired towards the end.

Mousa Dembele, 6

His trademark dribbling was on show but he passed up the opportunity to shoot in good positions twice. Grew increasingly tired and had to rely on his teammates a bit.

Ben Davies, 6

His final product was non-existent and his passing could have been better in the second half. He never hid, though, and looked keen to venture forward for the third game running.

Christian Eriksen, 7

Controlled the first half and scored a lovely opener with his weaker foot. Really dipped after half-time but it would be unfair to single him out after his first half contributions.

Dele Alli, 7

Similar to Eriksen, Alli played with so much freedom in the first 45 minutes, winning and scoring a penalty. But his flicks and tricks rarely came off after the break.

Heung-Min Son, 6

Displayed some excellent movement in the first half and nearly opened the scoring after an incisive run. But he failed to hold the ball up in any way and missed a good chance to make it 3-1.


Harry Winks, N/A

Replaced Son with 15 minutes to go. Showed aggression and a willingness to close the opposition down whenever possible.

Kieran Trippier, N/A

Replaced the injured Walker (wrist) and didn’t offer much more than a couple of misplaced passes.

Vincent Janssen, N/A

Came close to scoring with a powerful drive in a clumsy but effortful cameo.
