Tottenham player ratings: Eriksen and Kane outstanding, Belgians excel yet again

Tottenham beat Bournemouth 3-0 this afternoon - here is how their players rated.

Hugo Lloris 7 - wasn't called upon often as Bournemouth mustered just two shots, and none of those were on target, but did his job when called upon to command his area.

Kyle Walker 8 - started perfectly with the ball in to supply Harry Kane's first goal, and looked a threat throughout, flashing a shot across the face of goal in the second half.

Toby Alderweireld 8 - sniffed out and Bournemouth attack, making the right decisions at the crucial moments, whilst his passing was again impressive. Comfortably the best centre back in the Premier League right now.

Kevin Wimmer 7 - solid and assured throughout, it will be of great comfort to Mauricio Pochettino to know that he will have three superb centre backs when Jan Vertonghen returns.

Danny Rose 8 - another superb display from Rose, who was a constant menace down Tottenham's left hand side. Offered width throughout and should be England's first choice left back right now.

Eric Dier 7 - a fitness doubt before the game, Dier showed no sign of injury with another accomplished display. So good at keeping the ball and protecting his defence, the youngster again showed those qualities today.

Mousa Dembele 8 - everything looks so simple for Dembele, whether it's taking players on, passing the ball or tracking back. One of the most improved players under Pochettino, Dembele yet again ran the middle of the park today, and Bournemouth simply couldn't handle him. A fine day for Tottenham's Belgians, with Alderweireld impressing too.

Erik Lamela 7 - as often seems to be the case for Lamela, not everything he attempted in attack paid dividends, but he offered great workrate out wide before being substituted for Tom Carroll.

Dele Alli 8 - another assist for the teenager, who supplied Kane for his second goal of the day. Fluffed his lines with a late chance, but Alli was dangerous yet again, and had a goal chalked off for offside in the first half.

Christian Eriksen 9 - a simply great display from the Dane today, who notched the third goal in this 3-0 win. With 82 touches of the ball and four chances created, Eriksen was at the heart of everything for Tottenham, and deserved his goal.

Harry Kane 9 - what is there to say about Kane that hasn't already been said? Two more goals and an almost perfect display leading the line up front. A shame he couldn't cap off his performance with a hat-trick, but it was another excellent afternoon for Kane.


Tom Carroll 6 - came on for Lamela just past the hour mark and kept possession well as Spurs played out the final stages.

Ryan Mason and Nacer Chadli also came on, but weren't on long enough to make any real impact on the game.
