Heung Min Son and Harry Kane both scored twice as Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham produced an outstanding performance to thrash Manchester United 6-1 and inflict their joint-worst home defeat in Premier League history.

Tanguy Ndombele and Serge Aurier also scored as Spurs completed an excellent week with their third consecutive victory.

Here’s how we rated the players on the day:

Hugo Lloris, 7 – Couldn’t get near Bruno Fernandes’ penalty.

Serge Aurier, 9 – Faultless defensively and chipped in with an assist for Son’s second before drilling home Spurs’ fifth.

Davinson Sanchez, 7 – Endured a nightmare start by conceding a penalty for a needless foul on Antony Martial, but defended well after that.

Eric Dier, 8 – Comfortable afternoons work.

Sergio Regulion, 8 – Excellent Premier League debut for the Spaniard. Defended well and joined in the attack with his blistering pace.

Pierre-Hojbjerg, 9 – Performances like this is exactly why Mourinho signed him. Broke up play impressively and showed his quality at the other end with a defence-splitting pass for Aurier’s goal.

Moussa Sissoko, 8 – Pressed superbly for Kane’s first goal before producing a diagonal pass in the build-up moments later for Son’s second. His pace and power caused United problems all over the pitch all afternoon.

Tanguy Ndombele, 8 – Equalised with his first Premier League goal of the season before playing a part in the third. Quickly growing in confidence and Mourinho even had the luxury of being able to rest him for the final 20 minutes.

Erik Lamela, 8 – Battled well for the opening goal. Produced one outstanding pass to put Son in the clear and was involved in Anthony Martial’s sending off, in which he was booked himself in the incident and then sensibly replaced at half-time.

Heung Min Son, 10 – What a start to the campaign for the South Korean. Put Tottenham ahead with a wonderful run and finish before setting up Kane with an intelligent cut-back soon after. Grabbed his second of the afternoon with a close-range finish before the break.

Harry Kane, 10 – Assisted Son’s first with some quick-thinking before clinically getting himself on the scoresheet. Had one second-half chance that David De Gea saved but got his second 11 minutes from time with another trademark penalty. It’s now eight goals and seven assists in just eight matches this season for the England captain.


Lucas Moura, 7 – Replaced Lamela at half-time and caused problems with his pace.

Dele Alli, 7 – Came on for Ndombele for the final 20 minutes.

Ben Davies, 8 – Won the penalty.



  1. having had doubts about mourinio i feel that it is only fair to say that he has managed the squad very professionaly and despite the number of games the team is with him and the added players are making a major contribution
    long may it last

  2. Levy, Lewis and the Board backing the manager; Mourinho now exerting his influence on the team.
    That is all we have ever asked for.
    Well done to all and long may it continue.
    To all those who criticised in the past( and I am one of the 1 st to have done so), I graciously apologise.
    Please don’t let Alli or Aurier go and don’t bring in Rudiger on any account (not that probably Cheatski will allow it in any case).
