Tottenham Hotspur player ratings vs Anderlecht: Trippier has shocker but Dembele saves the day

Tottenham Hotspur Logo 2

Spurs emerged 2-1 victors in tonight's Europa League clash with Anderlecht.

Hugo Lloris: 6/10

Was protected well by his backline for the most part and was alert when called upon.

Kieran Trippier: 4/10

Once again failed to suggest he can seriously challenge Kyle Walker for a starting berth. Poor distribution and struggles against pace.

Toby Alderweireld: 8/10 MOTM

Commanding display by the Belgian. Made a number of crucial blocks and was cool and composed under pressure.

Jan Vertonghen: 7/10

A similarly impressive performance to that of his compatriot. The two are quickly forming a formidable partnership.

Ben Davies: 6/10

Much improved on his last few outings. Stuck to his task well against the nippy Nahar and picked his passes excellently in the final third.

Eric Dier: 6/10

Solid as ever and always seemed to be in the right position to cover for a wandering team-mate.

Ryan Mason: 6/10

Quietly went about his business but kept his passes unadventurous for the most part.

Erik Lamela: 7/10

The Argentine continues to grow in confidence and showed moments of real strength and quality throughout the night.

Dele Alli: 5/10

Probably the youngster's poorest game since his move to Spurs and nothing seemed to work for him, although he did improve slightly in the second half.

Christian Eriksen: 6/10

Linked up play well without producing anything spectacular.

Harry Kane: 7/10 

The Spurs frontman grabbed his fifth goal in three games with an excellent strike to put any talk of a drought well behind him.

Substitutes:

Josh Onomah: 6/10

Looks confident and was always willing to receive the ball and drive forward. Yet another bright prospect.

Mousa Dembele: 7/10

The Belgian looks to have turned a corner and grabbed his third goal in three games with an excellent strike late on.

Heung-Min Son: 6/10

Spurs fans will be delighted to see the South Korean back. Immediately added energy and pace to the Spurs attack.
