Tottenham secured a well-earned 2-1 victory over Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday thanks to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s opener and a Matt Targett own goal.
Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.
Hugo Lloris, 6 – All of his saves were relatively easy ones. Could do little about the goal.
Emerson Royal, 7 – A promising performance defensively and offensively, though his final ball could improve.
Cristian Romero, 5 – A real mixed bag. Shaky early, grew into it but then was at fault for the goal.
Eric Dier, 7 – Made a number of crucial headers and interceptions at the back.
Sergio Reguilon, 6 – Wasn’t as involved as his fellow full-back but did fine for the most past.
Oliver Skipp, 7 – An energetic and forceful midfield display that should keep him in the team.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 8 – Took his goal brilliantly and started a fair few attacks with some composed passing.
Tanguy Ndombele, 5 – Constantly took up the right positions but seemed to lack urgency and accuracy.
Lucas Moura, 6 – Worked hard and his presence forced Targett to score the own goal.
Son Heung-min, 9 – The South Korean was at his sensational best, providing a threat throughout and superbly assisting the second goal.
Harry Kane, 6 – More involved than he has been recently in the Premier League but still looks a little off in the final third.
Giovani Lo Celso, N/A – Replaced Ndombele for the final 20 minutes and had some nice touches.
Bryan Gil, N/A – Didn’t have enough time to make an impact.
