Tottenham player ratings: Eriksen influential, Danny Rose dangerous again, Alli quiet

Christian Eriksen FK

Tottenham beat Swansea City 2-1 at White Hart Lane this afternoon.

Hugo Lloris 7 - made a superb stop to deny Gylfi Sigurdsson from close range in the first half, and then kept out Alberto Paloschi's volley shortly after Danny Rose's goal. Steady and solid with everything he did.

Kyle Walker 7 - got forward really well and fizzed in some dangerous crosses; Harry Kane failed to connect with one in the first half, but Nacer Chadli flicked home Walker's drilled ball into the box before Walker had a goal ruled out for offside.

Toby Alderweireld 7 - wasn't troubled for large spells of the game but was as calm and assured as ever in the heart of Tottenham's defence.

Kevin Wimmer 6 - the odd concern with Paloschi's movement but generally solid from the Austrian, who stood strong late on to keep Swansea at bay as he impresses in Jan Vertonghen's absence.

Danny Rose 8 - another excellent performance from Rose, who has been dangerous going forward of late. Supplied some great crosses in the first half, tested Lukasz Fabianski with a long-range piledriver and then swooped to score the winning goal.

Eric Dier 7 - stepped in to protect the Spurs defence from the threat of Gylfi Sigurdsson, and should have scored from close range in the first half but for a fine save from Lukasz Fabianski. Also fired a long-range shot wide in the second half as Dier produced another good display.

Dele Alli 6 - picked up a knock in the pre-match warm-up, and it showed as the teenager didn't appear to be on top form today. Played the full 90 minutes but nothing really came off for Alli, unlike the majority of his campaign.

Christian Eriksen 8 - moved into more of a deep-lying playmaker role today, and was influential throughout. Tested Fabianski with two free kicks and went close with another long-range strike. Eriksen was at the heart of everything Tottenham did, and whilst some of his final balls went astray, the Dane was impressive today.

Erik Lamela 6 - missed a clear-cut chance early on when he spooned over from Danny Rose's left-wing cross, and whilst he worked hard once again, the Argentine couldn't help Spurs unlock the Swansea defence, and he was eventually subbed off for Nacer Chadli.

Son Heung-min 6 - fired straight at Fabianski when played through on goal in the first half, and produced some decent footwork without breaking Swansea down, before being taken off for Ryan Mason.

Harry Kane 6 - played with a protective mask after breaking his nose a week ago, but didn't trouble the Swansea defence as much as we've become accustomed to.


Nacer Chadli 7 - changed the game for Tottenham by coming on and producing an instinctive finish to level the game up. Another impressive cameo from a player looking to nail down a regular first-team spot.

Ryan Mason 6 - offered some energy in the middle of the park when Spurs began to tire, and offers manager Mauricio Pochettino a valuable option from the bench late in games.

Joshua Onomah - wasn't on long enough to make a real impact on the game.

Who did you think was Tottenham's man of the match against Swansea?
