Tottenham player ratings v Leicester City - Hugo Lloris shines again

Hugo Lloris

We assess the performances of Tottenham Hotspur's players against Leicester City yesterday.

Tottenham Hotspur continued their decent form yesterday, defeating Leicester City 2-1 at the King Power Stadium to claim a fourth consecutive win.

But who starred for Mauricio Pochettino's men. Here are the player ratings from the game...

Hugo Lloris - 9

The French goalkeeper continues to underline his place among the world's top goalkeepers. He made some excellent saves, including two top stops from Riyad Mahrez and Jeffrey Schlupp that helped Tottenham to victory.

Federico Fazio - 7

Again impressive, despite the best efforts of Leonardo Ulloa, and looks like he has cemented his spot in the Tottenham starting XI.

Jan Vertonghen - 7

Got lucky with a late penalty appeal but again had a generally solid game.

Danny Rose - 6

Looked good in an attacking sense but had a torrid time against Mahrez.

Kyle Walker - 6

The English international is clearly still adapting to being back after a long injury absence. He does give the defence a more natural look.

Nabil Bentaleb - 6

A typically composed performance, belying his age once again.

Benjamin Stambouli - 6

Didn't have time to effect the game before coming off at half-time. Should have scored.

Nacer Chadli - 7

Bagged an assist and gave Leicester worries whilst on the pitch.

Erik Lamela - 6

The Argentine was ineffective without being bad.

Christian Eriksen - 8

The Dane looks like becoming a real cult hero. Another match-winning moment with the free-kick.

Harry Kane - 7

Another goal for the striker. But he should have had more and was generally quiet throughout the game.


Ryan Mason - 6

Played some decent football in the second-half.

Roberto Soldado - 6

Did not have the impact Pochettino would have wanted. But did little wrong.

Paulinho - 6

Barely on the pitch long enough to have an impact.
