Tottenham returned to winning ways following a 3-1 victory over Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon.

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

Hugo Lloris, 7 – Helpless with McGoldrick’s close-range header, but took the pressure off his defenders by claiming some crosses on what was an easy afternoon for the Frenchman.

Joe Rodon, 8 – Preferred to both Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld, and justified his inclusion with what was a pretty faultless performance from the young defender, who made a number of crucial blocks and was dominant in the air.

Eric Dier, 7 – Looked far more assured than against Fulham, although he could’ve done more for Sheffield United’s goal.

Ben Davies, 7 – His distribution was good, but allowed McGoldrick to get in ahead of him to head home.

Serge Aurier, 7 – Headed home his second Premier League goal of the season to break the deadlock, and provided a great outlet for Spurs as a right wing-back.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 6 –  Won the ball back before feeding Kane for his goal, but it wasn’t one of the midfielder’s better performances here, although he avoided picking up  up his fifth yellow card, which would’ve seen his suspended against Liverpool next week.

Tanguy Ndombele, 8 – Started the game really brightly, which included one excellent outside of the foot pass for Aurier. Went quiet during the midway point, but secured the points with an outrageous lob over Aaron Ramsdale for his third league goal of the season.

Sergio Regulion, 7 – Unable to add to his assist tally, but the former Real Madrid left-back continues to show his class with his pace, quality and ball control on the counter-attack.

Steven Bergwijn, 7 – Really selfless and energetic display, which included a nice assist for Ndombele’s goal.

Heung Min Son, 5 – Assisted Aurier’s goal with an early corner before clipping the outside of the post when should’ve scored. Quiet after that.

Harry Kane, 8 – Another terrific display from the England captain, who stroked home an excellent finish to make it 2-0, although he’ll be slightly disappointed he didn’t add to his tally – especially with one late missed opportunity.


Lucas Moura, N/A – Replaced Bergwijn for the final few minutes.

Carlos Vinicius, N/A – Introduced late on.

Davinson Sanchez, N/A – Came on for the last few seconds.



  1. Can’t agree about 6 for PEH or 5 for Son (despite misses). Not just me, well out of step with other ratings I’ve seen.

  2. Perhaps a little hasty Stephen, but Mike England was in my opinion our greatest ever centre half, and if you are correct in your assessment and Rodon most certainly has impressed me, then the sky is the limit for him; having said that would rather he had a central partner other than Dier.

    • Delboy back in those days Phil Beal partnered big Mike today things are a lot different. We also had Peter Collins who was no mug.

  3. I also don’t agree with Son’s rating. This is not the first time you rated him the lowest. You either don’t like him or you were watching different Son.
