Tottenham squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with rivals Arsenal in the North London derby.

First-half goals from Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane put Spurs 2-0 to the good, but a Alexandre Lacazette goal just before the break put the Gunners back in the game, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ensured a share of the spoils.

Here’s how every Tottenham player rated on the day.

Hugo Lloris, 8 – Made a string off superb saves, including an excellent stop from a Guendouzi shot that was heading for the corner.

Davinson Sanchez, 3 – Played at right-back and struggled throughout. Gave the ball away far too often, including the free-kick that led to Arsenal’s opening goal.

Toby Alderweireld, 7 – Composed throughout and hardly put a foot wrong.

Jan Vertonghen, 6 – Made his first appearance of the season and did well, although Aubameyang lost him for Arsenal’s second.

Danny Rose, 5 – Hardly got forward and struggled defensively against the tricky Pepe.

Harry Winks, 8  By far his best performance of the campaign. Broke up play, distributed it well and played a part in the penalty.

Moussa Sissoko, 7 – A typical Moussa Sissoko performance. Energetic at both ends of the pitch, although he should have done better with a late chance that he blazed over.

Erik Lamela, 7 – Created the opener for Eriksen and proved to be a great outlet for Spurs in the opening period before he was replaced.

Son Heung-min, 7 – Back to his flying best. Stretched Arsenal with his pace and movement and unlucky not to get himself on the scoresheet – his goal-bound effort was wonderfully saved by Leno.

Christian Eriksen, 8 – Tapped home his first ever goal against the Gunners and could have added to his tally with a speculative free-kick on the stroke of half-time.

Harry Kane, 7 – Continued his fine goalscoring record in this fixture and could have added to his tally but saw his thunderous effort come back off the post in the second period.


Dele Alli, 4 – Should have been booked for diving late on.

Giovani Lo Celso, 7 – Showed some nice touches and had Kane squared for him in stoppage-time, he would have surely scored the winner and his first goal for Tottenham.
