Kane 8.5/10, Ndombele 7.5/10 – Here’s how the Tottenham stars fared in the 3-1 win over Aston Villa



Tottenham vs Aston Villa ratings: Tottenham player ratings

Tottenham started off the Premier League campaign with a win over Aston Villa. John McGinn gave the away side a surprise lead in the ninth minute as Spurs dominated most of the proceedings.

Tottenham didn’t have too many clear chances in the first half, and teams went into the break separated by just one goal.

The second half was a different story as we piled on the pressure for an equaliser. Tanguy Ndombele scored on his competitive debut with a thunderbolt from outside the box.

Harry Kane then scored a brace late on in the game as we wrapped up the points. Tottenham could have scored a few more had it not been for some great defending and Tom Heaton heroics.

Our next game is an away trip to Manchester City and that should be a great clash between two fantastic teams. Here’s how the Tottenham stars fared against Aston Villa last night:

Tottenham Player Ratings

Hugo Lloris – 6/10

Lloris could have done better to save McGinn’s effort but wasn’t troubled much for the rest of the evening.

Kyle Walker-Peters – 7/10

The youngster looked decent at the back, but his final product needs a lot of improvement.

Davinson Sanchez – 6/10

Sanchez did not track McGinn’s run for the opener as he tangled with another Villa player. The Colombian looked better after the goal went in and hopefully, he improves further ahead of the City clash.

Toby Alderweireld – 7/10

The Belgian did well to block a couple of efforts from the away side. It was a surprise to see Toby pair with Sanchez at the back, but they did enough to keep Villa quiet after that first goal.

Danny Rose – 6.5/10

Rose did well in the attacking third of the game but his slip allowed McGinn to shoot past Lloris for the opener.

Harry Winks – 6.5/10

Winks did his normal bit in the midfield as he kept the moves ticking. The Englishman was replaced by Eriksen in the second half.

Tanguy Ndombele – 7.5/10

Ndombele scored an excellent goal from outside the box and had some great moments in the game. His passing was a little off-radar at times but that should improve with more time on the pitch.

Tanguy Ndombele scores

Moussa Sissoko – 6.5/10

Sissoko had some decent chances to hit the target but could not take his opportunities. The Frenchman still looked good in a three-man midfield and needs to be at his best against City.

Erik Lamela – 5/10

The Argentine was a surprise starter against Villa but did not have enough telling moments in the game.

Lucas Moura – 6.5/10

Moura was full of running against the Villans but could not do much in the final third.

Harry Kane – 8.5/10

Kane was kept quiet during the first half but came alive as Spurs dominated the second half. Both his finishes were typical as he started the season with a bang.


Christian Eriksen – 7/10

Changed the game when he came on. The Dane also saw a fantastic free-kick saved well by Heaton in the second half.

Georges Kevin-N’Koudou – NA

It was a surprise to see the winger come on as a substitute.
