Tottenham player ratings: Eriksen outstanding, Kane deadly, Alderweireld continues to impress

Tottenham Hotspur hammered West Ham 4-1 today - here is how their players rated...

Hugo Lloris 7 - may feel a little disappointed to have been beaten at his near post for Manuel Lanzini's goal, but he was solid throughout otherwise.

Kyle Walker 8 - physically able to keep Victor Moses quiet, and he offered a threat going forward, as seen with his superb goal to make it 4-0 late on.

Toby Alderweireld 8 - even against the huge Andy Carroll, Alderweireld was largely untroubled defensively, brought the ball out well from the back, and even added a goal with a thumping header from Christian Eriksen's corner. The summer signing has been brilliant all season, and his arrival is a major factor in Tottenham's recent success.

Jan Vertonghen 7 - solid alongside Alderweireld yet again, the Belgian duo have an outstanding partnership which West Ham struggled to break down for most of the game.

Danny Rose 7 - got forward well down the left but his deliveries in to the box were fairly hit and miss. Solid against the athletic Diafra Sakho out wide.

Eric Dier 7 - another steady display from Dier, who broke play up well and once again offered outstanding protection for the Spurs back four, keeping Manuel Lanzini quiet until his goal on the break.

Dele Alli 7 - another energetic performance from Alli, who was unlucky to hit the crossbar with a diving header. Got up and down the pitch well but will be disappointed to have been booked, meaning he will miss next weekend's game against Chelsea.

Christian Eriksen 9 - always creating, always probing and capped off a superb display with two assists. Unlucky not to score himself having drilled a volley at Adrian from close range.

Mousa Dembele 8 - his exceptional strength coupled with his quick feet make him almost unplayable at times, and that's how he played again today. West Ham had no answer for his marauding runs, with Mauricio Pochettino using him in a slightly deeper role this time.

Son Heung-min 7 - incredible work rate from the South Korean international, and whilst he didn't have much joy in front of goal, he was a threat and constantly hassling and harrying the West Ham defenders.

Harry Kane 9 - the people that felt he was a one-season wonder look very foolish right now. Kane took his two goals superbly and could have had another when he miskicked the ball wide when through on goal. Now back to his best, the Premier League should be afraid of Kane if he can continue to play like this.


Ryan Mason 6 - replaced Alli's energy well late on, when Tottenham needed legs in the middle of the park to see the game out.

Joshua Onomah and Tom Carroll also came off the bench, but weren't on long enough to make a major impact.
