Tottenham player ratings: Alli the match-winner, Trippier's form continues, Chadli impressive

Nacer Chadli

Tottenham beat Crystal Palace 3-1 at Selhurst Park today.

Hugo Lloris 8 - made a number of superb saves in the second half to keep Palace at bay. Wasn't given much of a chance with Vertonghen's own goal.

Kieran Trippier 7 - after a slow start to life at White Hart Lane, Trippier has settled down and looks solid. Got forward well to supply crosses into the box and defended well too.

Toby Alderweireld 7 - had a solid game up against Connor Wickham and went close with a header from a corner in the first half.

Jan Vertonghen 6 - unlucky to score a first half own goal, and then went off injured in the second half in a tough afternoon for the Belgian.

Danny Rose 6 - was given a tough time by Wilfried Zaha in the first half and should've scored with a back post volley. Settled down in the second half and had a hand in the equaliser.

Eric Dier 5 - not his best day, and whilst he protected the back four, he was sacrificed for Nacer Chadli in the second half, with Mauricio Pochettino looking to attack more - and the decision was a masterstroke.

Mousa Dembele 7 - strong when going forward and comfortable in possession, Dembele helped Spurs dominate the early stages of the first half and was influential in the second after Dier went off.

Son Heung-min 6 - had a couple of driving runs forward and went close with a long range shot, but wasn't quite as dangerous as he was against Leicester in midweek.

Dele Alli 8 - his all-round performance was a little hit-and-miss at times, but nobody can deny that he had the biggest say on the match, smashing home an incredible goal to put Spurs in front.

Christian Eriksen 6 - failed to clear his lines in the build up to the Palace goal, but tried to create for Spurs and teed up Alli well with a nice cushioned header.

Harry Kane 7 - took his goal superbly and led the line well. It can sometimes look like Kane isn't really in the game, but then he comes to life and finds the back of the net.


Nacer Chadli 7 - made a major impact after coming on for Dier. Not only crossed for Kane to equalise, but then curled home a superb third goal to seal all three points.

Kevin Wimmer 6 - came on for the injured Vertonghen and stood strong to help Spurs get over the line.

Nabil Bentaleb - wasn't really on long enough to make an impact, though he did go close with a late effort on goal.
