Tottenham player ratings: Dembele's form continues, Clinton N'Jie struggles in cameo

Nathan Baker and Ryan Mason

Tottenham drew 0-0 with Chelsea today - here's how their players rated.

Hugo Lloris 8 - wasn't called upon often as Chelsea had just one shot on target, but he had to make a superb save to keep out Eden Hazard's volley. That save prevented Spurs from a defeat against Chelsea.

Kyle Walker 6 - got up and down the right flank well but was booked for a challenge on Cesar Azpilicueta. Has certainly improved this season, possibly due to Kieran Trippier's arrival as his competition.

Toby Alderweireld 8 - rarely troubled and looked assured in defence once again. Spurs have gone from a shaky defence to one of the most settled units in the Premier League, and most of that is down to the Belgian's performances.

Jan Vertonghen 7 - looked solid enough throughout as Chelsea played without a recognised centre forward. Booked for a foul on his Belgian international team-mate Eden Hazard.

Danny Rose 7 - always looking to make an impact in the final third and had a fascinating duel with Willian down Chelsea's right hand side. Also booked for a bad foul on Hazard.

Eric Dier 7 - screened the defence well and retained possession well. Continues to grow in his role in midfield, and was unfazed going up against the likes of Eden Hazard and Oscar.

Ryan Mason 6 - offered energy but didn't quite have the impact in the final third like Dele Alli often does. Fell awkwardly and was taken off injured, which would be a blow for Spurs considering that he has only just returned to action.

Son Heung-min 6 - once again offered work rate and a threat going forward, but he should have scored with a header before testing Asmir Begovic having been played in on goal. Needs to be more clinical in front of goal.

Mousa Dembele 8 - another impressive performance from Dembele, as Chelsea struggled to handle his powerful drives through midfield. Also offered some defensive protection with interceptions and tackles.

Christian Eriksen 6 - wasn't as creative as usual, and looked like he was feeling the effects of three games in a week. A little sloppy in possession and will be looking to bounce back next week.

Harry Kane 6 - managed only one shot on target as Chelsea limited Kane throughout. Didn't get involved as much as he would have liked, and is another player who will be looking forward to a rest before next weekend's trip to West Brom.


Erik Lamela 7 - bright cameo from the Argentine, who produced a superb scooped pass to play Son in on goal. May count himself unlucky not to have started, but gave Pochettino something to think about for next weekend's game.

Clinton N'Jie 5 - didn't have the desired effect as a late substitute. Didn't get much of a chance to use his pace, and his control let him down on a couple of occasions when the ball was played to his feet.
