Tottenham player ratings: Alli superb yet again, Lamela's improvement continues, Dembele stars

Tottenham drew 1-1 with Arsenal today - here is how their players rated...

Hugo Lloris 6 - made a superb diving save to deny Joel Campbell, but will be disappointed with the goal he conceded, having been beaten at the near post by Kieran Gibbs.

Kyle Walker 7 - kept Alexis Sanchez quiet and got forward well with great pace, but will also feel frustrated at allowing Gibbs in behind him to score.

Toby Alderweireld 7 - comfortable in possession and his relationship with Jan Vertonghen is evident. The Belgian duo have a sound understanding, and they certainly limited Arsenal going forward.

Jan Vertonghen 7 - the other half of the defensive partnership, Vertonghen had a solid game, and even got into a wrestling match with Olivier Giroud in the first half.

Danny Rose 7 - excellent going forward, and played a perfect through ball for Harry Kane to open the scoring. Didn't allow Campbell much joy down the flanks.

Eric Dier 7 - went about his job quietly, as he always does. Broke up play and protected the back four well, and could even have scored with a back post header in the first half.

Dele Alli 8 - continued his remarkable start to life in the Premier League with a strong display. Alli's athleticism was evident throughout, whilst he has the confidence to take on players and take risks in possession. His decision making can improve, but at 19, Alli is producing consistently excellent performances.

Mousa Dembele 8 - the Belgian international was all over the park, offering defensive protection as well as a driving force going forward. This is his best run of form in a Spurs shirt, and Arsenal couldn't deal with his physical prowess.

Christian Eriksen 7 - not quite as influential as he'd have liked, but he put in some dangerous set pieces and worked incredibly hard, covering so much ground to press Arsenal.

Erik Lamela 8 - another player who worked incredibly hard, whilst he also offered some flashes of quality on possession. This was another strong performance from Lamela, who has added exceptional work rate to his game this season.

Harry Kane 7 - took his goal superbly, and had two other shots which he will feel he could have done better with. Eventually became isolated as Arsenal took control in the second half.


Son Heung-min 5 - came on with 15 minutes left to play in place of an exhausted Lamela, but didn't make an impact at all.

Ryan Mason and Joshua Onomah also came on, but didn't play long enough to make an impact.
