Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund ratings: Tottenham player ratings

Tottenham put on a show at Wembley to more or less progress into the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Spurs were brilliant in the second half of the game as they finished with a healthy 3-0 lead after the first leg. Borussia Dortmund had their injury problems but so did Spurs, as Danny Rose and Ben Davies were unable to start.

Jan Vertonghen took on the left-back role for the night, and he was immense. The Belgian scored a goal and even assisted one to give Spurs a massive advantage.

Son Heung-min got things going in the second half with a goal in the 47th minute. Spurs fought evenly with Dortmund in the first half but the away side had the better chances in the opening 45.

Hugo Lloris kept us in the game with a few brilliant saves before the South Korean’s goal. Vertonghen then made it two with a brilliant volley before substitute Fernando Llorente wrapped things up with a header.

This was an excellent performance from the Lilywhites and there were a few heroes at Wembley on Wednesday. Dortmund need a miracle to make it to the next round, and here’s how the Tottenham stars fared.

Tottenham Player Ratings

Hugo Lloris – 8.5/10

Lloris was brilliant once again, as he kept out a deflected header from Dan-Axel Zagadou. The Frenchman also kept out a shot from Christian Pulisic to ensure we stayed in the game early on.

Juan Foyth – 8/10

The Argentine almost got caught out a couple of times in the first half, but after riding that storm, he was composed with the ball at his feet.

Davinson Sanchez – 7.5/10

Sanchez had a few problems in the game but did well to keep Dortmund from scoring in the first half.

Toby Alderweireld – 8/10

The Belgian did a good job early on even though Jadon Sancho was a bit of a problem for the defence.

Serge Aurier – 7/10

The Ivorian was booked early on but grew into the game as the minutes went by. The right-back then found Vertonghen with a brilliant cross.

Jan Vertonghen – 9.5/10

Super Jan was incredible in the game. The Belgian played at left wing-back and his crossing was on point. He created the first goal for Son and then volleyed the second.

Moussa Sissoko – 7.5/10

The most improved player this season, Sissoko did a decent job once again and ran himself to the ground for the team.

Christian Eriksen and Harry Winks

Christian Eriksen and Harry Winks

Harry Winks – 7.5/10

Another quality performance from Winks. The Englishman might not score too many goals but he is important to our system and kept things ticking with his use of the ball.

Christian Eriksen – 8/10

Eriksen might not have pulled the strings as much as he does usually but he could have scored early on. However, the Dane came up with the goods as his corner led to Llorente’s goal.

Lucas Moura – 6/10

Moura had an early chance to score but volleyed wide. The Brazilian had another chance to score but could not get his shot past the Dortmund defence.

Son Heung-min – 8.5/10

Son tested the Dortmund keeper early on but scored an important goal in the second half to get things going. The South Korean was a bundle of energy throughout the game and was one of our more impressive players.

Substitutes

Fernando Llorente – 7/10

The Spaniard didn’t have much time on the pitch but gave us a crucial third goal just minutes after coming on.

Erik Lamela – NA

Came on late to take some time off the clock.
