Spurs player ratings: Dreamland for one but Vertonghen and Chadli have nightmares

Tottenham Hotspur beat Leicester 4-3 at White Hart Lane during a nervy game. Here's how their players rated...

Hugo Lloris (came off injured very early on)

Michel Vorm - 6/10

Made a decent first-half save but couldn't really sort his defence out as Tottenham, for all their goals, conceded three at home to the bottom side in the Premier League.

Danny Rose - 6.5/10

Criticised for some of his involvements but won the penalty for Harry Kane's third goal and also made a vital tackle to stop David Nugent.

Eric Dier - 5/10

Credit to Mauricio Pochettino for sticking with a consistent centre-back partnership but Dier lacked presence and was poor from set-pieces. His best work came going forward.

Jan Vertonghen - 4/10

Equally poor from set-pieces and simply brushed off for Leicester's third. Desperately lacking in terms of leadership at the moment. Perhaps the Belgian needs a rest...

Kyle Walker - 6/10

A mixed bag. Got forward well but the Spurs defence were all at sea far too often.

Ryan Mason - 6/10

Played people in and worked hard as always. Not his best Tottenham performance by far, however.

Andros Townsend - 6/10

Took the corner for the north London side's opening goal but, once again, made little impact elsewhere.

Nabil Bentaleb - 5/10

Looked composed on the ball in midfield but, defensively, was very very poor - especially for the goals.

Nacer Chadli - 4/10

Just a day to forget for the 25-year-old. Chadli made two poor errors in front of goal, missing when it would have at least been easier to hit the target. Was also guilty of numerous fouls and, generally, didn't turn up at all for Spurs.

Christian Eriksen - 7/10

A good display from the Dane against Leicester - back (sort of) to what he can produce. Always got forward, always got on the ball and hit the post as well as scoring late on.

Harry Kane - 10/10

His first Premier League hat-trick. There is little more that needs to be said about the Tottenham hero.

Other Substitutes

Paulinho - 7/10

A surprise performer who provided great presence after being introduced in the 58th minute.

Mousa Dembele also came on with a couple of minutes to go.
