Tottenham player ratings v Arsenal: Dembele impresses on return, Eriksen quiet

Tottenham drew 2-2 with Arsenal today - here is how their players rated...

Hugo Lloris 6 - will maybe feel that he could have done better with Alexis Sanchez's goal, but was quick off his line to stop Arsenal attacks and commanded his area well.

Kyle Walker 7 - strong performance from Walker, who shackled Alexis Sanchez well and got forward to support the attack, almost setting up a goal with a drilled cross for Erik Lamela in the first half.

Toby Alderweireld 8 - some will harshly put him at fault for Aaron Ramsey's goal, but Alderweireld was strong throughout and was in the right place at the right time to score Tottenham's crucial equaliser.

Kevin Wimmer 6 - had a few shaky moments against the pacey Danny Welbeck, but did put in some vital challenges towards the end of the game.

Danny Rose 7 - gave Hector Bellerin problems with his runs forward and was always a dangerous outlet, but was out of position for Arsenal's opener and was eventually replaced by Ben Davies.

Eric Dier 5 - a little sloppy today with his passing, and was very lucky not to be sent off after committing a foul whilst already on a yellow card; not one of his better games.

Mousa Dembele 8 - simply superb in midfield. The Belgian's return was a welcome boost to the Spurs midfield, and he provided drive and quality in the middle of the park. Such an influential player, and Mauricio Pochettino will be delighted to have him back.

Erik Lamela 6 - not everything he tried in the final third came off, but Lamela worked hard off the ball and gave Spurs great shape; something they seemed to lose after he was substituted, having been on a booking.

Dele Alli 6 - a fairly quiet game from Alli, but his endeavour and flair led to Harry Kane's goal, as Alli chased a lost cause and backheeled the ball to the Spurs striker. Still doesn't look completely fit.

Christian Eriksen 5 - not what Spurs needed from Eriksen. Has impressed in recent weeks but he struggled today in a disappointing performance. His passing accuracy was at a poor 72%, and whilst he created a few opportunities, he looked off the pace this afternoon.

Harry Kane 8 - led the line well and forced the foul from Francis Coquelin which resulted in a red card. Looked like being frustrated in front of goal, before whipping a stunning shot past goalkeeper David Ospina and into the net. That kind of goalscoring ability could still win Tottenham the Premier League title.


Ryan Mason 5 - didn't have much of an impact on the game and Spurs seemed to lose some momentum when he came on.

Ben Davies 6 - added some fresh legs at left back, but couldn't help Spurs get back in front after Sanchez's goal.

Son Heung-min - struggled to get into the game as a late substitute.
