Tottenham vs Huddersfield ratings: Tottenham player ratings
Mauricio Pochettino made seven changes to the team that defeated Manchester City in the Champions League, but that did not matter in the end.
Huddersfield put up a tough fight but Tottenham had enough quality to beat the relegated side 4-0.
Lucas Moura got a hat-trick but it was Victor Wanyama who opened the scoring with some neat footwork in the box.
The win lifted us to third in the Premier League, but more importantly, we got to rest players like Toby Alderweireld and Son Heung-min before the City clash in midweek.
Fernando Llorente started for Spurs alongside Moura, but the Spaniard could not get a goal despite a quality performance.
This was the perfect result ahead of our Champions League game in midweek and here are the player ratings for Spurs.
Tottenham player ratings
Hugo Lloris – 7/10
The captain had nothing to do for most of the game but produced a fine save from Juninho Bacuna’s free-kick in the second half.
Kyle Walker-Peters – 7/10
The youngster got into the box a couple of times but didn’t really have a lot to do in the game.
Jan Vertonghen – 7/10
The Belgian also wasn’t troubled much in the game and should be looking forward to the Champions League tie.
Davinson Sanchez – 7/10
The Colombian pulled off an important block in the second half as Huddersfield had a great chance to score.
Juan Foyth – 6.5/10
Foyth did alright at the back but was booked for a rash challenge in the second half.
Ben Davies – 8/10
The Welsh defender had a great game down the left as he bombed forward several times and provided some quality crosses too.
Moussa Sissoko – 8.5/10
The French midfielder was excellent in the game as he set up Moura for his first goal and was a threat with his runs throughout the game.
Victor Wanyama – 7/10
Wanyama has barely played for us this season but showed his class with a fantastic goal. The Kenyan was determined to enter the box, did well with Llorente’s flick and used some quick feet to score.
Christian Eriksen – 7.5/10
Eriksen could have been involved more in the game but recorded an assist for Moura’s second goal of the game.
Lucas Moura – 9/10
The Brazilian ran himself to the ground and got a great goal in the first half, though the Huddersfield keeper could have done better. Moura did well for his second goal with a neat touch and finish, and hammered home his third in the final seconds of the game.
Fernando Llorente – 8/10
Llorente might not have scored in the game but he was great holding the ball up. He kept possession well and laid the ball off for Wanyama to get the opener. Could have done better with his headers and had a great chance to score but his shot was blocked.
Oliver Skipp – 5/10
Had some great moments in the game but this was a comfortable outing for him.
Danny Rose – NA
Got a few minutes in the game.
