Harry Kane scored twice as Tottenham recorded consecutive Premier League victories for the first time since the restart and moved up to 7th in the table.

Heung Min Son gave Jose Mourinho’s side an early lead before Matt Ritchie levelled with a thunderous finish 11 minutes into the second period.

However, Kane put Spurs back in front on the hour-mark before heading home his second and Tottenham’s third in the 90th minute.

Here’s how we rated the players on the day:

Hugo Lloris, 6 – Hardly a save to make and could do nothing about Ritchie’s goal.

Serge Aurier, 5 – Huge credit to the Aurier for playing less than three days after his brother was shot and killed in France, but made another costly error as his poor clearance went straight to Ritchie for the equaliser.

Davinson Sanchez, 6 – Another solid performance from the Colombian, who unsurprisingly dominated Dwight Gayle in the air and was comfortable on the deck, too.

Toby Alderweireld, 6 – No surprise that Tottenham’s good form continues with him in the starting XI. The Belgian was rarely troubled besides one poor clearance that led to nothing.

Ben Davies, 6 – Defended well.

Moussa Sissoko, 6 – Showed great energy in the middle, but generally wasteful on the ball.

Harry Winks, 6 – Kept it neat and tidy as always, but too many safe passes.

Giovani Lo Celso, 6 – Looked relitavely tired, but battled well and assisted Son’s opener.

Lucas Moura, 7 – It was his hard work that led to Son’s goal and was generally impressive once again before picking up a knock after the break which forced him to come off.

Heung Min Son, 7 – Swept home his second goal in as many games to open the scoring with a neat finish, but was quiet after that.

Harry Kane, 8 – Frustrating opening 60 minutes, but came alive when he superbly headed home Bergwijn’s cross before doubling his tally with another header in stoppage-time.

Substitutes:

Steven Bergwijn, 7 – Replaced Lucas and made an immediate impact as his inch-perfect cross was headed home by Kane for his first ever Premier League assist.

Erik Lamela, 6 – Busy as always and showed great footwork which led to Kane’s second.

Jan Vertonghen, N/A – Came on for Kane in stoppage-time.
