Tottenham won their fourth Premier League game on the trot as Erik Lamela’s first half goal was the decider against West Ham United.
The win lifted Spurs to third in the league table until Liverpool played the late game against Huddersfield.
Although the Argentine got the goal for us, we had another hero in Hugo Lloris. The Frenchman kept Marko Arnautovic from scoring thrice and ensured we kept a clean sheet.
We are just a couple of points behind Manchester City at the top of the table and our next game is against PSV in the Champions League.
Tottenham were decent in the clash and here is the player ratings from the clash.
Hugo Lloris – 8.5/10
The captain was in great form to deny Arnautovic and was one of the best players on the pitch for Tottenham.
Kieran Trippier – 6.5/10
Trippier couldn’t do much for the attack and had to be at his best defensively as Michail Antonio took him on multiple times.
Davinson Sanchez – 6.5/10
Sanchez didn’t have the greatest of times against Arnautovic but still tried to keep the Austrian in check.
Toby Alderweireld – 7/10
The Belgian was solid at the back for most of the game and had one important block against Robert Snodgrass before half-time.
Ben Davies – 7/10
Davies didn’t attack much in the game but he did a decent job when defending.
Moussa Sissoko – 7.5/10
Sissoko put in a quality performance and was brilliant in the first half as he picked up an assist for Lamela’s goal.
Eric Dier – 7.5/10
This was a much better performance from Dier for Tottenham as he protected the defence well.
Harry Winks – 8/10
Winks was incredible in midfielder for Spurs. The Englishman kept the tempo up and did his bit by running around the ground and keeping the pressure on the Hammers midfield.
Erik Lamela – 8/10
The Argentine scored via a deft header from Sissoko’s cross and was a threat throughout the game for Tottenham.
Lucas Moura – 6.5/10
Moura troubled the West Ham defence but couldn’t get much change out of the opposition team.
Harry Kane – 6/10
Kane tried his best but didn’t have many chances to score. The Englishman worked his socks off for us though.
Mousa Dembele – 5/10
The Belgian did a decent job after coming on as he kept the ball well.
Fernando Llorente – NA
Llorente was a late sub and had one chance to score but couldn’t hit the target.
Christian Eriksen – NA
It is great news for Spurs as Eriksen came back for the last minute or so.
