Tottenham left it late to earn a point against West Brom, but who played well and who failed to impress at the Hawthorns?
Hugo Lloris, 7
Made an important double save just before half time when his concentration levels had to be tip-top after a quiet opening period. Was unlucky in his attempt to parry the ball away before Chadli’s goal only to see it come off his own body and fall to the goalscorer’s feet.
Kyle Walker, 7
Put in one notable tackle in the second half that stopped a promising West Brom attack developing. Didn’t get forward as much as he generally likes to, perhaps because the full backs were deployed in a slightly narrower defensive set-up than usual.
Toby Alderweireld, 7
Was a little wasteful on the ball early on but was his usual composed self at the back until being forced off with a serious looking injury in the second half.
Jan Vertonghen, 7
A crucial header in the second half prevented what would have been a huge chance for the hosts. Played a part in keeping Spurs in the game in a 7/10 display from the entire defence.
Ben Davies, 7
Did far more than his fellow full back Walker going forward. Nearly scored an ambitious volley and surged into the box effectively a couple of times. Promising from a player who usually looks inept in attacking areas when deputising for Danny Rose.
Victor Wanyama, 8
Followed up his stunning display against Manchester City with another brilliant performance shielding the back four. Wanyama covers so much ground it’s almost incomprehensible, sweeping up others’ mistakes and breaking up countless opposition attacks.
Christian Eriksen, 7
Most of Tottenham’s good play going forward went through Eriksen. The Dane was incredibly unlucky not to find the net with a low drive in the first half and a deceptive free kick right at the end, both superbly saved by Ben Foster. His critics will say he must make his mark more often.
Moussa Sissoko, 5
I’m a big advocate for patience, but can understand why some Spurs supporters are already having doubts about Sissoko. Again today, he looked inferior to most of his teammates in terms of quality and impact. Did plenty of running, though, which will please his manager — that’s something, at least.
Erik Lamela, 5
Another under-par display from a player who started the season impressively with a goal at Everton. Was sloppy in the final third and wasted one of the visitors’ best chances early in the game. Could lose his place in the team if performances don’t improve.
Dele Alli, 7
Missed a really good chance in the first half that would have made things easier for Spurs, but kept working and was eventually rewarded with a brilliantly taken goal late on. Alli is becoming one of Spurs’ key goal threats in Harry Kane’s absence.
Vincent Janssen, 7
Unfortunately the same can’t be said for Janssen, who isn’t getting any closer to that first goal from open play. Thankfully, though, his hold up-play is a genuinely effective attribute, allowing him to dictate the pace of attacks and create significant chances. For that reason, the Soldado comparisons are unjustified.
Eric Dier, 6
Replaced Alderweireld and was part of a defence that slackened to allow Chadli’s opener, but can hardly be blamed for that. Expect to see Dier in that right-sided centre half spot for however long Toby is out.
Mousa Dembele, 6
Played to his usual strengths but perhaps wasn’t the right player to bring on when Tottenham were looking for a goal.
Heung-Min Son, 7
Injected pace and ambition into Spurs’ stuttering attack when it was needed — probably should have been introduced earlier.
