Tottenham Hotspur are back in the Premier League title race following our momentous 2-0 win over Chelsea at the Lane last night.
Two Dele Alli headers were enough to fire us up to third in the table (get in!).
Hugo Lloris 6
Wasn’t really required or did anything of note but earned his match fee with a cracking save from Diego Costa early in the second half.
Jan Vertonghen 6.5
Steady-Eddie (Jan) in most things he does – played well and fine defensive performance – joined in with the attacks when required.
Toby Alderweireld 7.5
Took main responsibility for keeping Costa quiet and accomplished his job well. The main man in a back three. Dependable as usual.
Eric Dier 6.5
Kept his discipline but he didn’t look entirely comfortable on the right of a three-man defence. Room for improvement.
Danny Rose 8
Booked: Chelsea could only stop Danny by kicking lumps out of him. Magnificent going forward and came back to defend when required.
Victor Wanyama 7.5
Booked: Stopped Chelsea building momentum and got stuck in when he had to in the midfield. Victor simply refused to let hardly anyone in Blue run past him.
Mousa Dembele 6.5
Did what he had to but nothing exceptional.
Kyle Walker 6.5
Kept Pedro out of the game – played a part in the build-up to Alli’s goals – professional performance.
Harry Kane 6.2
Simply couldn’t get into the swing of things but that has to be a credit to the Chelsea defence. Huffed and puffed but not his night.
Christian Eriksen 8.1
Two brilliant crosses to set up Alli’s goals. Always creative and simply had his finger on the pulse.
Dele Alli 8.5
Booked: The media wonder why Real Madrid are sniffing around our brilliant and in-form player. Match-winner and Man of the Match after two fine headed goals. Brimming with skill and confidence.
Harry Winks 6
Came on for Dembele 74 mins.
Moussa Sissoko 6
Came on for Alli 86 mins.
Came on for Kane 90 + 2 mins.
Mauricio Pochettino – Got his tactics spot on. 10 out of 10!
