Player ratings – Son a 9 plus another deserved 9 for Tottenham vs Red Star Belgrade

Spurs got their Champions League campaign back on track as they thrashed Red Star Belgrade 5-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Harry Kane opened the scoring after nine minutes before two further first-half goals from Heung Min Son put Tottenham 3-0 up at the break. Erik Lamela – on his 200th appearance for the club – added a fourth in the second period before Kane grabbed his second late on.

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

Paulo Gazzaniga, 6 – Made a couple of routine saves, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Serge Aurier, 7 – Occasionally sluggish, but much improved compared to his previous Champions League showing and helped himself to his third assist of the season for Lamela.

Davinson Sanchez, 7 – Did what was needed to help Spurs achieve just their third clean sheet in all competitions this season.

Jan Vertonghen, 7 – Like Sanchez, a comfortable evening for the Belgian.

Ben Davies, 7 – A typically assured display from the Welshman, who looked assured at both ends of the pitch.

Tanguy Ndombele, 8 – Really strong performance from Tottenham’s record signing, which included plenty of hard work and two assists, one of which a no-look pass for Kane.

Moussa Sissoko, 7 – Not as composed on the ball as a Harry Winks, but protected the back four well and got up and down the pitch.

Dele Alli, 7 – Finally showing signs after an extremely frustrating 2019. Kept getting Spurs high up the pitch and his performance warranted another goal, although it never came.

Erik Lamela, 9 – Why has this man been sitting on the bench for so long? Staring the evening by picking out Kane for the opener before producing some fine work to assist Son’s first goal. Missed a sitter at the beginning of the second-half, but his goal came soon after.

Son Heung-min, 9 – Scintillating display from start to finish, which included two well-taken goals. Should have gone home from the match ball, but could only graze the side-netting from close-range in the second period.

Harry Kane, 9 – Started the scoring with a glancing header and rounded it off with a clinical low finish. Played a number of excellent passes, including one for Aurier, who assisted Lamela. It’s now 15 goals for club and country this season for the England captain.

Substitutes

Eric Dier, 6 – Given a late run out.

Juan Foyth, 6 – Like Dier, not enough time to make an impact.

Giovani Lo Celso, 6 – Finally got his first minutes since early-September – was heavily involved and came close to getting his first Tottenham goal but skewed wide.
