Tottenham rounded off a miserable week with a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.
Carlos Vinicius’ first Premier League goal put Jose Mourinho’s team ahead before Harry Kane added a second from the penalty spot as Spurs returned to winning ways.
Here’s how we rated the players on the day:
Hugo Lloris, 6 – Had little to do.
Japhet Tanganga, 8 – Really strong performance from the youngster, whose definitely staked a claim for further outings at right-back, especially with Matt Doherty struggling.
Davinson Sanchez, 6 – Gave away some needless free-kicks in dangerous areas, but did well overall.
Joe Rodon, 8 – Made his first appearance for some time, but slotted back in nicely in what was an excellent showing from the Welshman, who made one crucial second-half block of note.
Sergio Regulion, 6 – Struggled defensively before he came off injured.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 8 – Tottenham missed him on Thursday. Returned following suspension and was brilliantly winning back possession before almost capping another good showing with a goal, only for Emiliano Martinez to palm his effort away.
Tanguy Ndombele, 7 – Some really good moments, which included winning the ball back which and then finding Lucas which led to the second.
Lucas Moura, 9 – Best player on the pitch by some distance. Won the ball back before setting up his Brazilian teammate Vinicius for the opener before playing in Kane for Spurs’ second. Deserved a goal himself, although his hard work certainly didn’t got unnoticed here.
Giovani Lo Celso, 5 – First start since before Christmas and it showed. Struggled to get a grip on the proceedings.
Carlos Vinicius, 6 – Tapped home the opener and worked hard, although didn’t have much of an impact besides his goal.
Harry Kane, 8 – Another brilliant display from Tottenham’s talisman. Involved in the one-two which led to Vinicius’ goal before winning and then confidently dispatching the penalty.
Ben Davies, 7 – Replaced Regulion and did well, although his crossing was questionable.
Steven Bergwijn, 6 – Gave Spurs his usual energy, but desperately lacking in confidence.
Moussa Sissoko, 6 – Gave Ndombele a late breather.
