Tottenham Hotspur player ratings v Hull City: Fazio struggles, Lamela impresses

Nabil Bentaleb Spurs

Tottenham beat Hull City 2-0 this afternoon - here's how their players rated...

Hugo Lloris 7 - commanded his area well, punching away or claiming crosses when they came into the area. A solid if unspectacular day at the office for the Frenchman.

Eric Dier 6 - caught too high up the pitch at times and could have given Tottenham the lead with an early header, but did fairly well at right back.

Federico Fazio 5 - loose passing and poor marking led to Hull causing problems in the first half, and the Argentine continues to struggle in English football.

Jan Vertonghen 6 - an improvement on last weekend's horror show at Stoke City, but the Belgian appears to be coasting as the season comes to an end.

Danny Rose 7 - a little shaky early on when Hull attacked, but he steadied himself, and scored a superb volley with his weaker right foot to seal the win.

Ryan Mason 7 - tried to create things in the final third and managed it with the pass for Rose's goal; a great scooped ball over the Hull defence.

Nabil Bentaleb 6 - more erratic with his passing than we've been used to in the first half, but as with most Tottenham players, he came out far more energetic after half time.

Nacer Chadli 7 - some fairly poor crosses into the box in the first half but took his goal superbly well, rounding the goalkeeper before tapping into the empty net to give Tottenham the lead.

Christian Eriksen 5 - lost the ball far too often, regularly outmuscled and couldn't create anything in the final third. Was replaced by Mousa Dembele on 58 minutes on a poor afternoon for the Dane.

Erik Lamela 8 - one of his better performances this season, Lamela got on the ball and tried to create chances, eventually weighting a superb through ball for Chadli to score. 

Harry Kane 6 - a frustrating day for Kane, who had a couple of chances but couldn't find the net. With just one goal in his last seven games, Kane has endured a difficult spell of late.

Substitutes

Mousa Dembele 6 - passed the ball well without making too much of a difference to the Tottenham midfield after coming on.

Benjamin Stambouli 6 - the Frenchman hasn't played much lately but defended well to help Tottenham see the game out.

Roberto Soldado also came on, but wasn't on long enough to make an impact.
