Despite being on top for the majority of their first Premier League outing at Wembley, Tottenham fell to a late defeat against champions Chelsea. Marcos Alonso scored twice to give the visitors all three points in the first London derby of the season, but how did Spurs do individually?
Hugo Lloris, 5
Could do nothing about Alonso’s stunning free-kick, but he had to do better with the winner, which somehow went past the Frenchman at his near post.
Kieran Trippier, 6
Put two impressive deliveries in but overall his crossing was inconsistent. Defended reasonably well apart from one piece of miscommunication with Alderweireld that led to Morata’s early chance.
Toby Alderweireld, 6
Outpaced by Morata on one occasion but it came to nothing. Looked comfortable for the most part except for the mishap involving Trippier (see above).
Jan Vertonghen, 6
Perhaps could have distributed the ball more quickly. More than once he seemed to take an extra touch before releasing the ball. Dealt with Chelsea’s rare attacking threat when needed.
Ben Davies, 6
Had a couple of decent shots just before half-time and looked confident going forward. Was a tad safe with his passing when sometimes a cross would have been the better choice.
Eric Dier, 5
Played in a deep midfield three. Slowed things down too often and produced a couple of underwhelming crosses just before he was substituted with 25 minutes to go.
Victor Wanyama, 4
Looked completely off the pace, possibly because of a lack of pre-season minutes. Gave the ball away for the winner and was sloppy and slow throughout.
Mousa Dembele, 7
Was dispossessed a few times in the first half but it was a result of being a bit braver than usual. Roamed forward regularly and was far more threatening than his fellow midfielders.
Christian Eriksen, 7
Found room in the final third to dictate attacks and make Spurs tick. Created the goal with a whipped free-kick and linked up well with Kane.
Dele Alli, 5
Gave away the free-kick that led to Chelsea’s first goal. Wasn’t very incisive with his passing and didn’t get in dangerous positions often enough to provide a goal threat.
Harry Kane, 7
Did everything but score, hitting the post and missing a good opportunity from a corner. Held the ball up brilliantly and constantly drove forward. Unlucky to be on the losing side.
Heung-Min Son, 6
Made some good runs in behind but, like others, could have been more decisive in releasing the ball.
Moussa Sissoko, N/A
Wasn’t heavily involved in a 14-minute cameo.
Vincent Janssen, N/A
I don’t recall the stoppage time substitute touching the ball.
