Tottenham thumped Leicester City 6-1 at the King Power Stadium in their penultimate game of the season. The visitors put in a fine team display, but how did they perform individually?

Hugo Lloris, 6

His rush of blood and subsequent slip led to the Leicester goal but he was arguably rather unfortunate.

Toby Alderweireld, 7

Took Leicester’s defence out of the game with a pinpoint long ball to create the opener. Comfortable at the back throughout.

Eric Dier, 7

Was tasked with tracking Jamie Vardy’s runs in behind the Spurs defence and dealt with him relatively easily on all but one occasion.

Jan Vertonghen, 7

Brought the ball out from the back with his usual composure and rarely looked threatened by Leicester’s right-sided players.

Moussa Sissoko, 6

Looked bereft of confidence in the early stages but grew into the game and did fine in the second half. Started the attack for Son’s second goal.

Victor Wanyama, 8

Controlled the midfield battle from beginning to end, winning just about every 50/50 and barely putting a foot wrong all night.

Mousa Dembele, 7

Carried the ball forward with his customary grace. Perhaps could have been braver with his passing but it didn’t matter with the creativity elsewhere.

Ben Davies, 7

Riyad Mahrez gave him a bit of trouble in the first half but the Algerian rarely got past him. Looked to get forward throughout and made the sixth goal.

Dele Alli, 8

Didn’t really look like scoring but stepped up creatively in Christian Eriksen’s absence. A stylish display epitomised by his chipped assisted for Son’s first.

Heung-Min Son, 9

Missed a couple of good early chances but soon found his clinical touch, scoring two brilliant goals and playing a part in most things Tottenham did right.

Harry Kane, 10

A performance of the highest quality. Kane scored four excellent goals and now looks certain to retain the Golden Boot.

Substitutes

Vincent Janssen, N/A

Looked sharp in his 15-minute cameo and was unlucky to see a goal chalked off for offside.

Filip Lesniak, N/A

Introduced on 86 minutes, marking his Spurs debut with an assist.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, N/A

The stoppage time arrival barely touched the ball.
