Tottenham ran out 3-2 winners in an incredible Premier League encounter with Manchester City on Saturday night.

Dejan Kulusevski opened the scoring before a Hugo Lloris mistake gifted Ilkay Gundogan an equaliser.

In the second half Spurs went ahead through Harry Kane but that was eventually cancelled out by a stoppage time Riyad Mahrez penalty.

And yet – and YET – there was still time for another late twist, and Kane provided it with a headed winner at the death.

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

Hugo Lloris, 6 – Made a bad mistake for City’s first but a great save from Gundogan in the second half made up for it.

Cristian Romero, 9 – An absolute rock throughout. Was so unlucky with the handball for the penalty.

Eric Dier, 8 – Made the difference with his organisation at the back. Spurs look so much better defensively when he plays.

Ben Davies, 8 – Really good performance after a difficult few weeks. Played the pass into Kane that led to the opener.

Emerson Royal, 6 – Lacked quality at times but didn’t stop working for the team and made some useful runs down the right.

Rodrigo Bentancur, 7 – Lost the ball a few times under pressure but grew into it and got Spurs out of the press well in the second half.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 8 – Showed his warrior qualities by chasing down City and battling for every single ball.

Ryan Sessegnon, 6 – A little nervous in possession but played his part in getting Spurs up the pitch down the left.

Dejan Kulusevski, 9 – Took his goal really well in a display of complete composure that also included that crucial assist for the winner.

Son Heung-min, 9 – Saw less of the ball than his attacking teammates but always made it count, creating the opener and laying on Kane’s first with aplomb.

Harry Kane, 10 – Extraordinary from start to finish. Every touch was significant and productive. Two brilliant, vital goals to drag Spurs out of their funk.


Lucas Moura, N/A – Came on with 10 minutes left. Ran for the team but didn’t have many touches.

Matt Doherty, N/A – Replaced Emerson late on. Can’t recall many touches.

Davinson Sanchez, N/A – Introduced at 2-2 to help see the game out.




  1. Spurs defenitly play better without Winks and Sessegnon should not be selected bec he has not play well since signed for Spurs.
