Tottenham picked up their first Premier League victory of 2020 as they beat Norwich City 2-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Dele Alli’s neat finish opened the scoring in the 38th minute before Teemu Pukki levelled from the penalty spot 20 minutes from time. However, Heung Min Son’s first goal since December earned Jose Mourinho’s men a crucial three points in their quest for a top-four finish.

Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.

Hugo Lloris, 6 – Made his return to the side after almost four months on the sidelines – but will probably think he should have saved Pukki’s spot-kick after getting a hand to it.

Serge Aurier, 7 – Really good defensively and showed his ability at the other end with another fine assist for Alli – his seventh in all competitions this season.

Toby Alderweireld, 7 – His passing was excellent and dealt with everything comfortably.

Jan Vertonghen, 5 – Still looks slow on the ball and had a few edgy moments.

Ryan Sessegnon, 3 – A massive learning curve for the teenager. Struggled throughout and brought down Max Aaron’s for the penalty.

Harry Winks, 7 – Was impressive, but his nasty-looking injury overshadowed what looked set to be a good night for the England midfielder.

Giovani Lo Celso, 8 – Continued where he left off against both Middlesbrough and Watford with another excellent display. Won the ball back before releasing Son for the first goal and played a cute pass in behind for Alli for Tottenham’s second. The stand-out player on the pitch.

Erik Lamela, 5 – Not his night. Lunged into too many tackles that weren’t there to be won and had no influence in the attacking third.

Dele Alli, 6 – He was poor up to his goal. Improved in the second-half and played a major part in Son’s winner.

Lucas Moura, 5 – Put in plenty of unselfish running, but didn’t have a chance on goal.

Heung Min Son, 5 – Missed some good chances, but came up with the winner with a close-range header after Alli’s deflected effort looped into his path.

Substitutes

Eric Dier, 6 – Replaced the injured Winks and looked better than in recent weeks. Make an important late block after moving to centre-back when Vertonghen went off.

Christian Eriksen, 5 – Barely looked interested on what was possibly his final ever appearance for Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Gedson Fernandes, N/A – Showed some nice touches in the closing stages.

  1. Laboured performance not helped by the amount of day trippers in the south stand tonight. When Eriksen goes and turns it on elsewhere please let his defenders come on here and justify his performances. Top performance by Gio tonight and even domestic abuse looked half decent.
