Tottenham player ratings – Hojbjerg, Son and Harry all outstanding vs Arsenal



Heung Min Son and Harry Kane scored first-half goals as Tottenham kept up their excellent form following a 2-0 victory in the north London derby.

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

Hugo Lloris, 7 – Hardly tested, but when called into action he made a sharp save from Alexandre Lacazette’s header. Made some key catches and punches from corners, though.

Serge Aurier, 8 – Another impressive display from the right-back, who was well-disciplined against the tricky Willian and Bukayo Saka.

Toby Alderweireld, 9 – How good is this man? Returned to the side after missing out against Chelsea last weekend, and was absolutely immense, which included one superb block from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second-half chance.

Eric Dier, 8 – Like Alderweireld, a rock at the back for Tottenham, who won countless headers and defended brilliantly.

Sergio Regulion, 8 Dealt with Arsenal’s threat well and got his side high up the pitch.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 10 – Just when you think the Dane can’t get any better, he produces his best performance of the season in his first north London derby. Surely one of, if not, the signing of the summer in the Premier League.

Moussa Sissoko, 8 – Similar to Hojbjerg, protected the back-four fantastically and must have covered every blade of grass at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Giovani Lo Celso, 7 – Struggled at times, but put in a shift and broke well for Son’s goal.

Steven Bergwijn, 8 – Didn’t quite happen in an attacking sense, but put in so much work defensively to help out Aurier.

Heung Min Son, 9 – Started the scoring with easily one of the best goals of his Tottenham career, before returning the favour for Kane for the second in what was another excellent display, in what is quickly turning into a remarkable season for the South Korean.

Harry Kane, 9 – Did brilliantly to drop deep and find Son for the opener, before hammering home on the stroke of half-time to become the all-time top Premier League goalscorer in north London derbies. Outstanding defensively from set-pieces, too.


Ben Davies, 6 – Came on for Lo Celso late on as Spurs looked to shore things up.

Lucas Moura, N/A – Replaced Son late on.

Joe Rodon, N/A – Introduced in the final few seconds.
