Tottenham player ratings: Chadli struggles to take his chance, Trippier impresses again

White Hart Lane 5

Tottenham beat Watford 1-0 today - here is how their players rated.

Hugo Lloris 7 - didn't have much to do even when Troy Deeney came on to support Odion Ighalo up front, and claimed a late cross to take the pressure off his defence.

Kieran Trippier 8 - Tottenham's match-winner with a second half goal. Always shows a desire to get forward, and his timely run to the back post gave Spurs all three points. Once again, Kyle Walker doesn't look like getting his place back.

Toby Alderweireld 8 - coped well with the pace of Odion Ighalo up front, and still looks assured even without his usual defensive partner Jan Vertonghen, with a promising partnership with Kevin Wimmer being developed.

Kevin Wimmer 7 - a big test of his ability today up against Ighalo, but the Austrian stepped up and performed admirably again. Two starts, two clean sheets for Wimmer this week, and he's also comfortable enough in possession to replace Vertonghen.

Ben Davies 7 - bombed forward down the left and got into some great positions, particularly in the first half, and could have scored. Deservedly keeping Danny Rose out of the side right now.

Eric Dier 6 - committed some silly fouls but generally shielded the defence well and played the ball forward quickly when given the chance to do so.

Mousa Dembele 8 - played a huge part in the goal with yet another driving run forward, and the Belgian was impressive again this afternoon, with Watford's midfield - including Etienne Capoue - struggling to cope with him.

Erik Lamela 6 - given a chance to shine in place of Son Heung-min today, and whilst he worked hard, the Argentine didn't have the end product, and was eventually substituted for Son.

Christian Eriksen 7 - created a host of opportunities for his team-mates in a bright display. Unsurprisingly, this all came in the Dane's favoured position as a No. 10, with Dele Alli out of the side today. Seems to be coming back into form after a quiet spell earlier this season.

Nacer Chadli 6 - handed a chance to impress after some decent displays recently, but couldn't thrive today. The Belgian struggled to get into the game and was eventually substituted for Dele Alli.

Harry Kane 6 - not as his clinical best today. Should've had a penalty after being brought down by goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, but will have been disappointed to have only managed two shots in 90 minutes this afternoon.

Substitutes

Dele Alli 7 - put across a superb ball for Trippier's winning goal. It seems that if you give him the ball, something magical happens.

Son Heung-min 6 - a bright cameo appearance for the South Korean, who took on the Watford defence and even tested Gomes with a smart shot.

Tom Carroll came on in injury time, and didn't have enough time to make an impact.
