Tottenham 5-2 Southampton player ratings: Spurs stars rated and slated

first_img Centre-back: Jan Vertonghen – 8/10 – One of the most reliable centre-backs in the division, he looked comfortable all afternoon as Spurs romped to victory and made a number of excellent defensive contributions, including one incredible goal-saving tackle. Tottenham Hotspur ended their 2017 in style with a thumping 5-2 over Southampton at Wembley.Harry Kane was, as per usual, the hero as he slammed in a hat-trick against the Saints, making him the top goalscorer in Europe this calendar year – beating Lionel Messi into second place.Spurs will be disappointed they allowed their opponents to score twice in the second half, but how did their individual players perform on Boxing Day?Click the right arrow above to see our player ratings for Tottenham… Centre-back: Davinson Sanchez – 7/10 – He showed a more progressive side to his game early on with a nice run and chipped pass to Dele Alli. He’s still got to work on his aerial game but dealt well with Southampton’s threat on the counter. 14 Striker: Harry Kane – 9/10 – It was inevitable the strike ace would beat Alan Shearer’s calendar year record but he went above and beyond at Wembley by smashing home a hat-trick. A header opened the scoring before he tapped home a second strike before the break. His third goal was an exceptional finish as he chipped the on-rushing Fraser Forster to end the calendar year with an astonishing 56 goals. Right-back: Serge Aurier – 6/10 – The Ivorian is still a little shaky in a positional sense but offers plenty going forward. He does need to work on his final ball, which continues to frustrate Harry Kane. 14 Left-back: Danny Rose – 7/10 – Did well to win the free-kick which led to Harry Kane’s opener but almost undid the good work when his header back to Hugo Lloris almost resulted in an own goal. A delicious cross-field ball almost resulted in a stunning Kane goal but the striker nudged the ball just wide. The left-back is finally getting near to his best after injury. 14 14 Central midfield: Eric Dier – 6/10 – He got further forward than usual in the opening stages and played well throughout but almost ruined it with a clumsy backpass which put Shane Long in on goal, he did fade as the game went on but wasn’t troubled too much thanks to Southampton’s insistence on shooting from range. 14 14 14 Attacking midfield: Heung-Min Son – 8/10 – South Korea star Son didn’t do much wrong but was very much on the periphery in the first period until he claimed a neat assist for Kane’s second goal. Come the second half, he sprang into life and, after passing to Alli for the third goal of the game, got a smart strike of his own to make it 4-0. His tireless running kept Spurs on the front foot even after Southampton’s consolation goal. 14 14 14 Substitute: Moussa Sissoko – 6/10 – The Frenchman replaced the injured Mousa Dembele and did okay without pulling up too many trees. He plays far better on the counter attack and looked shaky defensively. 14 14 Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris – 5/10 – Click the right arrow above to see our Tottenham player ratings for their 5-2 win over Southampton… – Shot-stopper Lloris showed his sweeping ability on a couple of occasions as Southampton looked to exploit Spurs’ defence with Shane Long’s pace. Lloris could, though, have done better with Sofiane Boufal’s consolation goal, as it beat him at the near post, and then got in a flap for Dusan Tadic’s goal. Central midfield: Mousa Dembele – 6/10 – Hasn’t been in the best of form this season and again his touch looked a little off, especially in tighter areas. He grew into the game but was then forced off with a knock. Attacking midfield: Dele Alli – 8/10 – After a run of below-par displays, Alli looked towards his best as he drifted into the spaces left by Southampton’s defence. He was heavily involved throughout and did well in the build up to Kane’s second goal of the game. His goal was superbly taken effort from the edge of the box and he then laid on another for Son as Spurs ran riot. He did, though, get wasteful towards the end of the match as complacency set in. Substitute: Erik Lamela – 6/10 – Still returning from injury, the Argentine showed moment of brilliance but isn’t quite on the same wavelength as some of his team-mates. Attacking midfield: Christian Eriksen – 7/10 – The Dane looked bright early on in as he drifted into central positions and got the assist for Tottenham’s first with a simple in-swinging free-kick. He wasn’t spectacular but did what was need of him to create chances at Wembley. 14 14 Substitute: Harry Winks – N/A – The midfielder didn’t have much time to make an impact in the match.last_img read more
