Gareth Bale and Harry Kane both scored twice as Tottenham thrashed Crystal Palace 4-1 to record their third straight Premier League victory.

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

Hugo Lloris, 6 – Helpless with Christian Benteke’s header and could only watch Wilfried Zaha’s shot come back off the post.

Matt Doherty, 6 – Allowed Luka Milivojevic far too much space for Palace’s equaliser.

Toby Alderweireld, 7 – Lost his Belgian teammate Benteke for the goal, although he was hardly troubled besides that one sticky moment.

Davinson Sanchez, 7 – Like Alderweireld, didn’t cover himself in glory for Benteke’s goal, but it was another decent showing overall.

Sergio Regulion, 7 – Should’ve done better with an early chance, but it was his cross that Kane headed back across goal for Bale’s second.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, 7 – Looks back to his usual self following a slight blip. Put in loads of great work and will probably get rewarded with a well-deserved rest on Thursday night.

Harry Winks, 7 – Generally a strong showing from the midfielder, who kept things ticking over well in the middle of the park.

Gareth Bale, 9 – Started brightly and should have claimed an early assist, had it not been for Son’s miss. But then opened the scoring with a simple finish from Kane’s cross before heading home another Kane assist to put Tottenham back ahead early in the second-half.

Lucas Moura, 8 – Really energetic performance from the Brazilian, whose pressing created the opening goal and remained a threat throughout.

Heung Min Son, 7 – Should’ve given Spurs an early lead, but headed straight at the goalkeeper. Assisted Kane’s second with an excellent first-time cross from Lamela’s pass.

Harry Kane, 10 – Scintillating performance from Kane, who became the first Tottenham player to register two goals and two assists in a Premier League since Jurgen Klinsmann in 1998. Created both of Bale’s before curling home a sensational effort from 25-yards himself and then got his second and Spurs’ fourth with a simple header.


Moussa Sissoko, 6 – Replaced Winks.

Erik Lamela, 7 – Looked busy and played an inch-perfect pass for Son for Kane’s second.

Carlos Vinicius, 6 – Hardly involved.
