Spurs player ratings: Eriksen superb - but Boruc is Tottenham's best player

Tottenham Hotspur Logo 2

Tottenham Hotspur beat Bournemouth 5-1 on Sunday afternoon and got a big hand from the opposition goalkeeper.

Hugo Lloris - 6.5/10

One shaky moment with his feet but the Frenchman wasn't really troubled apart from that and the first goal.

Danny Rose - 6.5/10

The Tottenham left-back was poor for Bournemouth's goal but, as usual, did well going forward. Delivered a fluky cross to set up Mousa Dembele’s goal but it did the job.

Toby Alderweireld - 7.5/10

The centre-back was particularly good getting forward and in the air.

Jan Vertonghen - 6.5/10

Not the Belgian's most eventful day, with Bournemouth hardly threatening.

Kyle Walker - 6.5/10

An average showing from the right-back, although he got forward reasonably well.

Eric Dier - 7/10

No problems from one of Tottenham's most consistent players. Helped out both defensively and in attack.

Dele Alli - 6.5/10

Quieter than usual but did his job and got involved in the build-up play, of which there was plenty for the north London side.

Christian Eriksen - 9/10

The creative force for Spurs and so important when it comes to helping out Harry Kane.

Mousa Dembele - 7/10

Didn't set the world on fire against a poor Bournemouth side but did do well and netted before the break, too.

Erik Lamela - 7.5/10

Another  one to be helped out by some terrible defending but the Argentine did well on the ball and also netted for Tottenham.

Harry Kane - 9/10

Many will feel Kane was handed his goals on a plate by the Bournemouth shot stopper but he was constantly putting pressure on the Cherries defence for his hat-trick - and this game should be a huge confidence booster for him.

Artur Boruc - 10/10

As a Spurs player, the Bournemouth goalkeeper was superb... At fault for most of the goals, it was like the visitors had a 12th man...


Ryan Mason and Kieran Trippier came on (Mason a lot earlier) in the second half with the game already won and enjoyed a few minutes of solid football each. Clinton Njie was also introduced late on.
