Tottenham player ratings against Everton - Vertonghen and Kane impress

Here are our player ratings for the Tottenham Hotspur players against Everton tonight.

Hugo Lloris 7 - solid once again between the sticks, and demonstrated his famed speed off his line to thwart Everton attacks. Had no chance with Mirallas's goal.

Vlad Chiriches 6 - handed a start at right back after impressing against Hull, the Romanian struggled early on and looked really shaky, but grew into the game as time passed.

Federico Fazio 7 - largely dominated Lukaku, especially in the air, and looked far more assured than in recent weeks. Formed a good partnership with Vertonghen.

Jan Vertonghen 8 - offered a great, balanced partnership with Fazio. Not afraid to bring the ball out of defence, and look more like the Vertonghen from his first season at White Hart Lane.

Ben Davies 7 - promising display. Defended well, shackled Aiden McGeady when he came on and supported the attack well. Should keep Danny Rose out of the team.

Aaron Lennon 8 - impressive return to the line-up. Caused problems for Leighton Baines with his pace before laying on a good through ball for Soldado's winner.

Ryan Mason 7 - did okay, had a good understanding with Bentaleb over when to run forward or hold in midfield, and offered good energy in the middle.

Nabil Bentaleb 7 - confident with his passing, tried to unpick to Everton defence and as mentioned above, formed a promising combination in midfield with Mason.

Christian Eriksen 8 - floated around in a bid to get on the ball and took his goal superbly. Tottenham's key creative force once again.

Harry Kane 8 - outstanding in the first half. Picked up the ball and drove at the heart of the Everton defence with confidence. Needs to improve his decision making in the final third.

Roberto Soldado 8 - Movement was fantastic in the first half and was rewarded with a well taken goal. Deserves his run in the team on this performance.


Eric Dier 6 - came on for the injured Chiriches and was fairly solid at right back.

Paulinho n/a - wasn't on for long enough.

Erik Lamela 6 - tried to make things happen with his dribbling, but also made efforts to track back.
