Tottenham player ratings Against Arsenal

Published

on

Tottenham and Arsenal engaged in a 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium. The North London Derby was headed Spurs’ way, but Arsenal substitute Kieran Gibbs scored with virtually his second touch of the game to deny Pochettino’s team a win against their big rivals.

Here is how the players fared on the night:

Hugo Lloris- 6

Was not involved as much during most of the game, but was reliable as usual during the end part of the game. He did make some excellent saves in the match, but many could argue he could have done better for Gibbs’ goal.

Kyle Walker- 6

Was effective against Alexis Sanchez and could curtain the dangerous ex-Barcelona attacker’s threat. However, undid his good work after his poor marking gave Gibbs the chance to equalize.

Toby Alderweireld- 7

The Belgian has been one of the finest signings of the season and his partnership at the back with Vertonghen is the prime reason for Spurs doing so well defensively in this campaign. Was solid once again and also forced Cech into a smart save at the other end.

Jan Vertonghen- 7

The other half of the composed Belgian duo, Vertonghen had a solid game. He got into a bit of a wrestling bout with Olivier Giroud in the first half.

Danny Rose- 7

He was excellent at the back and dealt with Campbell with composure. It was his brilliant through-ball for Harry Kane that got Spurs their lead.

Eric Dier- 7

Dier has been great for Tottenham this season and has vindicated his manager’s decision to play him in the midfield. He went about his job quietly and effectively. Could have scored as well.

Dele Alli- 7.5

What a start to the Premier League this youngster is enjoying! The teenager could have been overwhelmed by the occasion but looked composed and comfortable. He was the prime reason Arsenal couldn’t dominate the midfield.

Mousa Dembele- 8

The Belgian is enjoying a great run of form in the Tottenham midfield. He covered big distances, offering strength and tenacity in the middle of the park. He proved to be an effective attacking outlet for the Lilywhites. He completed as many successful dribbles as the entire Arsenal side combined (5). Besides, he completed 5 take ons and won 4 tackles.

Erik Lamela- 7

Since almost being transferred on deadline day, the Argentine has done very well in a Spurs shirt. Worked hard and showed flashes of unadulterated quality in possession. The improvement in his work rate is what has really caught the eye this season.

Christian Eriksen- 6.5

The Dane is unarguably Tottenham’s most vital player. Unsurprisingly, Arsenal had a plan for him which ensured he wasn’t as threatening as he is in most games. However, he worked tirelessly and put in some dangerous free-kicks. Not to mention, his movement led to Mertesacker being drawn out of position for the visitors’ goal.

Harry Kane- 7

The Englishman looks like the rough patch might be behind him completely. The 22-year-old has now scored in four consecutive matches for his side and a goal in a match of this magnitude might give him the ultimate lift for a successful and prolific individual season.

Substitutes

Son Heung-Min- 5

Came on for 15 minutes, but didn’t make any noticeable impact.
