Tottenham player ratings vs Leicester City: Lamela has a nightmare, Alli makes statement

Tottenham WHL

The two sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Hugo Lloris: 5/10

As has been the case recently, the Frenchman found himself conceding despite having a fairly quiet afternoon. Got fingers to the Riyad Mahrez equaliser but couldn’t keep it out, and his one save of note was a from a Wes Morgan header - powered straight at his chest from six yards.

Kyle Walker: 5/10

Limited in his threat going forward but fairly resolute defensively, against the tireless Mark Albrighton and Jamie Vardy.

Toby Alderweireld: 6/10

No glaring errors and generally swept up well. Continues to impress with his composure and distribution.

Jan Vertonghen: 4/10

One of his worst displays in recent memory. Lucky to get away with a stonewall penalty after a clumsy challenge on Vardy went unpunished. Was erratic with his clearances and invited unnecessary pressure on several occasions.

Ben Davies: 3/10

Was given the run around by Mahrez and offered nothing going forward. His poor aerial challenge also led to the Leicester equaliser, and the return of Danny Rose can’t come soon enough for the Lilywhites.

Ryan Mason: 5/10

Displayed his usual energy and made several strong tackles but failed to effect the game in more advanced areas. (Substituted for Nabil Bentaleb on 88 minutes)

Eric Dier: 4/10

Failed to get himself involved at all and didn’t provide enough of a shield for the shaky Spurs defence.

Erik Lamela: 2/10

Worst of the lot. It doesn’t look like happening at Spurs for the Argentine, and he failed miserably today in what was probably his last chance to stake a claim before the new faces arrive. (Substituted for Dele Alli on 65 minutes)

Mousa Dembele: 8/10

The Belgian was the sole provider of any kind of guile or attacking threat for Spurs. Tormented the Foxes all game with his excellent dribbling and wasn’t far away with a couple of attempts at goal. (Substituted for Tom Carroll on 77 minutes)

Nacer Chadli: 5/10

The enigmatic winger performed another one of his all-too-often disappearing acts this afternoon, and rarely threatened to cause Leicester harm. Managed to grab the assist for Alli’s goal with a decent clipped ball into the box, however.

Harry Kane: 5/10

Hasn’t happened so far this season for Spurs’ main man and he found himself isolated once again today as part of a limp Spurs attack. Desperately needs an injection of quality behind him to get firing again.


Dele Alli: 7/10

The 19-year old added another dimension when he came on and was well forward to put away his chance. Gives Spurs a genuine box-to-box presence and is surely in contention to start next week.

Tom Carroll: 5/10

Worked hard but didn’t have much influence. Still looks too lightweight for the Premier League.

Nabil Bentaleb: N/A
