Kane’s August Hoodoo Is Over: The Best And Worst Rated Tottenham Players From The 3-0 Win Over Everton

Published

Match Report: Everton 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham got back to winning ways in the Premier League, thanks to an incredible performance by Harry Kane, who broke his duck in the league this season. We didn’t have the greatest of results while playing at home, but away to Everton, we were phenomenal as we defeated Ronald Koeman’s side 3-0.

Everton were put to the sword by Kane and co, with the Englishman opening the scoring with a wonderful effort in the first half. Christian Eriksen added a second after a spill from the Toffees goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and ensured the Lilywhites finished the first-half with a two-goal lead.

The home side couldn’t deal with the movement and swagger from our side and it was Kane again, who scored by converting a cross to make it a three-goal lead. That is the way it stayed, even though we had a number of chances to score more.

Mauricio Pochettino must have been pleased with the win and the next item on our agenda would be the Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund.

There were a number of star performers from the win and here is how Spurs fared on the day:

Tottenham Player Ratings

Hugo Lloris – 6/10

Even though Everton didn’t really trouble our captain, Lloris made a hash of a couple of clearances and almost gifted a goal to the opposition. He was lucky he didn’t get punished and he needs to work on his distribution.

Toby Alderweireld – 8/10

Alderweireld was brilliant once again, despite picking up a booking early on in the game. The Belgian made a couple of blocks and even had a pop at goal in a dominant display.

Davinson Sanchez – 7.5/10

The new signing didn’t look off pace and seemed to slot in perfectly with Vertonghen and Alderweireld. Sanchez seems like a great buy from Poch and hopefully, he will have more such games for us.

Jan Vertonghen – 7.5/10

Another solid display from the Belgian defender and the best part of the day was that he didn’t really have a lot to do against Everton’s attack.  

Kieran Trippier – 7/10

Trippier didn’t have the greatest game when it came to his attacking output. He was decent in defence but didn’t really have to do much at Goodison Park.

Moussa Sissoko – 6/10

Sissoko had a couple of great chances to score and get the monkey off his back but to no avail. The Frenchman will play a few games for us this season and he just might be able to give us a positive output before the end of the season.

Eric Dier – 7/10

This was a decent display for Dier as a central midfielder, as he screened our defence really well. He did look more comfortable in midfield than in defence and hopefully with Sanchez’s signing, Dier can stick to one position and not be shifted around.

Ben Davies – 8/10

The other wing-back in our team had a field day as he played a hand in the second and third goal while he also put in a number of great crosses early on in the game.

Dele Alli – 7/10

Alli was marshalled well by the home side, which meant he kept on getting fouled or double-teamed. The Englishman did do well in spurts and did have a big role to play in the second goal we scored.

Christian Eriksen – 8/10

The Dane was another one of our players at the heart of everything good in the attack today. He did score a goal after a bit of a scrap in the Everton penalty box and he linked really well with the rest of the players, especially Kane.

Harry Kane – 9.5/10

Kane’s August hoodoo is over for another season as he bagged a brace against the Toffees. Everton didn’t really put up a great defensive showing but the first goal from Kane was a beauty. Kane was a pain to the home side and scored a second, while he could have assisted a few goals as well.

Substitutes

Mousa Dembele – 5.5/10

The Belgian came on to provide support to the wide players and did well.

Harry Winks – 5/10

Winks was brought on to replace the injured Sissoko and did alright in the end.

Son Heung-min – NA

Was a late sub for Kane and didn’t really have a lot of time to do much.
