Tottenham went top of the Premier League on Saturday night after beating Manchester City 2-0.

Goals from Son Heung-min and Giovani Lo Celso sealed a well-earned victory for Jose Mourinho’s men.

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

Hugo Lloris, 7 – Was only really stretched once and conceded a disallowed goal but was generally commanding.

Serge Aurier, 7 – Dealt with Ferran Torres really well. Possibly his best defensive performance for Spurs.

Toby Alderweireld, 8 – Faultless one-on-one and dominated in the air until he left the pitch with a groin injury.

Eric Dier, 9 – A near perfect performance. Blocked shot after shot and was really composed on the ball.

Sergio Reguilon, 6 – Was a bit clumsy bringing the ball out at times and scuffed a couple of clearances, but he never hid and worked hard.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 8 – Another top display from Spurs’ rock in front of the back four. Was in the right place at the right time on so many occasions.

Moussa Sissoko, 7 – A couple of wayward passes but his positioning was good and he helped the right-back out as usual.

Tanguy Ndombele, 8 – Brilliant in possession. Made the goal and took players on with ease before he started to tire.

Steven Bergwijn, 7 – Started really sharply and made plenty of things happen going forward. Quieter in the second half.

Harry Kane, 9 – A performance that had everything but a goal. Pinpoint assist for the second goal but it was his defensive and hold-up play that stood out.

Son Heung-min, 8 – Took his one big chance. Not overly involved but was disciplined in helping his full-back out.


Giovani Lo Celso, 8 – Took his instant goal really well and scrapped appropriately in the final few minutes.

Lucas Moura, N/A – Came on with less than 20 minutes to go and closed Man City down all over the pitch.

Joe Rodon, N/A – A forced arrival to replace Alderweireld. Stood his ground in the latter stages.



  1. Reguilon 6? Did you even watch the match?
    Well done lads, complete controlled performance. Some idiots will bang on about lack of possession, it’s not how much of the ball you have, it’s what you do with it.
