Tottenham pulled another rabbit out of the bag with their 1-0 win over Inter Milan in the Champions League.

The win put us above the Italians in the group, and Champions League progress is in our hands as long as we match Inter’s result on the final match day.

Christian Eriksen got the only goal of the game in the second half, after coming on as a sub. Tottenham had a few chances to score but couldn’t get the better of Samir Handanovic in the Inter goal.

Our last game of the group is at the Nou Camp against Barcelona, but the Catalans have already qualified for the knockout round.

Tottenham had a few heroes on the pitch at Wembley, and here are the player ratings from the game.

Hugo Lloris – 7/10

The captain had a couple of quality saves late on in the game, but apart from that, the Frenchman was not troubled much.

Serge Aurier – 7/10

This was another stellar game for the Ivorian as he defended well and sent Moussa Sissoko through for our late winner.

Toby Alderweireld – 7/10

The Belgian had a normal outing at the back and picked up a booking for tripping Mauro Icardi to stop an attack.

Jan Vertonghen – 7.5/10

Its great to have Vertonghen back from his long injury lay-off, and the Belgian picked up right where he left off with a quality display.

Ben Davies – 6.5/10

The Welshman looked good at the back but his output in the final third should be better as some of his crosses were misplaced.

Moussa Sissoko Tottenham

Moussa Sissoko – 8/10

The midfielder had another quality game for Tottenham. He protected the backline well and played a huge role in Eriksen’s goal.

Harry Winks – 7.5/10

Winks controlled the tempo well in the middle of the pitch and even saw an effort come off the crossbar with a sweet strike.

Lucas Moura – 6.5/10

Moura ran a lot on the pitch and had one chance to score but shot straight at the Inter keeper.

Dele Alli – 7/10

The Englishman didn’t have many quality moments in the game, but he provided the decisive pass as he turned to give the ball to Eriksen.

Erik Lamela – 5/10

Lamela was lucky not to get a red card for a horror challenge on Marcelo Brozovic, and his decision making wasn’t great in the final third too.

Harry Kane Tottenham

Harry Kane – 7/10

Kane didn’t get on the scoresheet but he made life difficult for the Inter defence early on with some of his runs.

Substitutes:

Song Heung-min – 7/10

The South Korean replaced Moura and seemed to provide Spurs with a greater attacking threat.

Christian Eriksen – 8/10

Eriksen got the all-important winner for Spurs and had a great impact coming off the bench.
