Kane stars for Lilywhites: Tottenham player ratings from 2-0 win at Huddersfield

Published

Harry Kane Tottenham

A Harry Kane brace in the space of nine minutes was enough to see off Huddersfield Town. Tottenham were coming off a 4-2 penalty shootout win over Watford in the Carabao Cup and were missing Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen from the team.

Although the away side weren’t great, they took the lead after a pinpoint cross from Kieran Trippier found Harry Kane, who headed the ball in the 25th minute.

Danny Rose was tugged in the box and Kane made no mistake by slamming home our second in the 34th minute.

Huddersfield did have a couple of chances to score but we controlled the game well and moved into the top four with the result.

Kane was brilliant in the game but there were a number of other stars on show as well.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 8/10

The Argentine was great with his hands but his kicking wasn’t too hot. This was still a commanding performance from the keeper and he should be our No.2 behind Hugo Lloris.

Toby Alderweireld – 7/10

The Belgian looked off the pace in the first half but kept things tidy in the second to record a clean sheet.

Davinson Sanchez

Davinson Sanchez – 7.5/10

Possibly the best defender of the afternoon. The Colombian was a rock at the back and only made one small error which Toby dealt with in the second half.

Jan Vertonghen – 5/10

Vertonghen had a decent first half but had to be taken off at half-time with an injury.

Kieran Trippier – 7.5/10

A brilliant cross for Kane got us the opening goal but the Englishman didn’t attack a lot in the second half.

Eric Dier – 6.5/10

The Englishman’s passing was still wayward but he did a decent job when moved to the back in the second half.

Mousa Dembele – 5.5/10

Another player was taken off at half-time, Dembele was his usual self with his passing and control in the midfield.

Danny Rose – 7/10

The Englishman did a much better job at left-back/left-wingback than Ben Davies and won us the penalty that more or less made the game safe.

Lucas Moura – 7.5/10

It was Moura who created the first chance as his run led to Trippier getting the ball for the cross. The Brazilian had chances to score but just couldn’t get it right in the second half.

Son Heung-min – 6.5/10

The South Korean was decent in the game but we need to see more of him in the attacking third.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane – 8.5/10

This wasn’t Kane’s best game but the first goal silenced the home crowd and laid the foundation for an important win.

Substitutes

Victor Wanyama – 6/10

The Kenyan did alright in the midfield after coming on in the second half for Tottenham.

Harry Winks – 6.5/10

Winks did a lot of work in the second half and hopefully, we will see more of him in the coming weeks.
