Tottenham kicked off their Europa League group stage campaign with a comfortable 3-0 victory over LASK.

Lucas Moura’s opener and an own-goal did the damage before Heung Min Son came the bench to make the points safe as Jose Mourinho’s side made a winning start.

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

Joe Hart, 7 – Comfortable in everything he did, which included a sharp one-handed stop in the first-half.

Matt Doherty, 7 – Linked up well with Bale at times and should have claimed an assist had it not been for an early Vinicius sitter.

Davinson Sanchez, 6 – Rarely tested all evening.

Ben Davies, 8 – Arguably Tottenham’s best player on the night. Wore the captain’s armband and led by example throughout.

Sergio Regulion, 7 – Great outlet going forward and it was his superb run that created the space for Tottenham’s second goal.

Pierre-Hojbjerg, 8 – Outstanding performance from the Dane, who mopped up everything that came his way.

Harry Winks, 6 – Neat in possession, but continues to struggle without the ball. Hardly gave Mourinho a selection headache ahead of Burnley on Monday.

Erik Lamela, 4 – Found Bale in the build-up to the second, but wasteful all evening and was deservedly hooked as part of a triple substitution.

Gareth Bale, 6 – Rusty display on his second debut, but did manage to sent over a fine outside of the foot cross which forced the own-goal. Important 62 minutes in the tank.

Lucas Moura, 7 – Tucked home the opener with confidence and was generally a danger all evening. Sent over one wonderful cross before heading over a second-half Son corner.

Carlos Vinicius, 7 – Excellent debut from the Brazilian. Missed a golden early chance to score his first Spurs goal, heading wide from close-range. But produced a wonderful assist for Moura’s opener and then another for Son with a cushioned header.


Moussa Sissoko, 6 – Hardly involved.

Dele Alli, 6 – Squandered a great chance from point-blank range when he should’ve scored.

Heung Min Son, 7 – Scored his ninth goal in eight matches with an easy finish.

Giovani Lo Celso, 6 – Returned to the side and showed some excellent touches.

Jack Clarke, N/A – Replaced Vinicius in the latter stages to make his Tottenham debut and almost marked it with a goal, lashing just wide in stoppage-time.
