Tottenham overcame first half injuries to Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks, eventually cruising to a 2-0 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor. So how did they perform individually?
Hugo Lloris, 7
Wasn’t troubled much, only forced to make a few routine catches.
Eric Dier, 8
Hugely improved when he moved into midfield in the second half. Scored the crucial opener with a well taken finish.
Toby Alderweireld, 8
Showed just how multifaceted he is as a defender, completely untroubled by Andre Gray’s pace and Sam Vokes’ strength.
Jan Vertonghen, 7
Has shown his best form for Tottenham in recent weeks as the left-sided defender in a back three, but looked just as comfortable after the tactical switch to a back four.
Kieran Trippier, 6
Was inaccurate with his passing and crossing in the first 45 minutes. Grew into the game and was mostly comfortable in the second half.
Victor Wanyama, 6
Endemic of Spurs’ slow start, he tried to soldier on through a back injury at least twice but eventually succumbed.
Harry Winks, 6
Seemed keen to drive forward but overhit a couple of simple passes before being stretchered off with a really unfortunate injury just before half-time.
Ben Davies, 6
Was unlucky to see a powerful shot saved after a one-two with Vincent Janssen. Didn’t get into those dangerous positions often enough.
Christian Eriksen, 7
Looked most likely to cut through Burnley for the most part, seeing a left-footed shot well saved before Dele Alli missed the rebound. His pass set up Alli to assist the second goal.
Dele Alli, 7
Missed two sitters that would have made things far more comfortable. Led Tottenham’s attack during their best spell and set up Heung-Min Son’s goal.
Vincent Janssen, 7
Didn’t ever really look like scoring but held up the ball brilliantly with some beautiful touches. Promising signs of at least some sort of contribution.
Mousa Dembele, 8
His 44th minute arrival and the subsequent tactical change were key; Dembele controlled the midfield with some dazzling runs that left Burnley players trailing in his wake.
Moussa Sissoko, 4
Replaced Winks just before the break and contributed nothing but a torrid first touch and one wayward strike that should have been on target.
Heung-Min Son, 7
Scored the second goal which all but secured the points. Arguably should have bagged a couple more.
