Tottenham Hotspur Logo

Spurs ran out 3-1 winners at White Hart Lane earlier tonight.

Hugo Lloris: 5/10

Erratic distribution and had a couple of let-offs, was largely untroubled throughout.

Kyle Walker: 6/10

Had his hands full with the pacey sinclair but coped well for the most part.

Toby Alderweireld: 7/10

Assured as ever, the Belgian continues to impress.

Jan Vertonghen: 7/10

Much the same as his compatriot - a calm presence at the back and made a couple of crucial blocks.

Danny Rose: 6/10

Came close to scoring from a well-worked corner routine and was stout defensively before going off injured.

Eric Dier: 6/10

Was a controlling presence in the first-half but faded in the second and was involved in a mix-up for Villa's goal.

Dele Alli: 8/10 MOTM

Full of energy and proved once again what a goal-threat he can be.

Erik Lamela: 7/10

Worked hard and linked-well. Picked out the final ball to seal the game.

Mousa Dembele: 7/10

Fantastic display of strength for his goal and now seems to have turned a corner at Spurs.

Christian Eriksen: 6/10

Less involved  then he has been in recent weeks but kept things ticking over.

Harry Kane: 7/10

Was a little isolated at times but worked hard and got his reward at the death.

Substitutes:

Ryan Mason: 5/10

Spurs seemed to lose composure once Dembele went off as Mason struggled to get up to speed.

Ben Davies: N/A

Josh Onomah: N/A
