Given Tottenham Hotspur’s form and performances under manager Jose Mourinho, fans could be forgiven for wondering what we’d be treated to in Sunday’s clash against Leicester City at White Hart Lane.
Undoubtedly the visitors had the better of the game when it came to chances and possession, but they didn’t overly trouble us – especially after a more scintillating first half showing where a Harry Kane brace had us three goals to the good going into the break.
After that performance, despite the second half drop off in the entertainment, statistics website Whoscored were only going to have one star man from the game.
Was Harry Your Man Of The Match?
Completing the top five best performers in their ratings system were Lucas Moura (8.48), Hugo Lloris (8.28), Ben Davies (7.59) and Davinson Sanchez (7.34).
Moussa Sissoko, Serge Aurier, Giovani Lo Celso, Harry Winks and Son Heung-Min all received plus seven scores for their efforts as well, so clearly the defensive structure and keeping the clean sheet was well recognised in the ratings as well.
Onto Crystal Palace and what will be will be – when it comes to Europe.
