A skeptical mystic who likes to channel his inner loneliness into drumming and dissection of football games. Dreams of watching Tottenham play at the new White Hart Lane. Has spent a majority of the last two years on foul-mouthing Moussa Sissoko and worrying about his receding hairline.

Tottenham continued their excellent record in the recent past against Manchester City, inflicting a 2-0 defeat on Pep Guardiola’s men at the White Hart Lane. An own goal from Aleksandar Kolarov and Dele Alli gave Tottenham a 2-0 lead going into the second half after a dominant display which the home side managed to hold on to until the final whistle. The win continued Pochettino’s seven games unbeaten run in the Premier League this season. Below are Tottenham’s individual player ratings.

Hugo Lloris

Rating: 8.5

The Frenchman made two some brilliant saves and did really well to collect crosses during set-pieces and corners.

Kyle Walker

Rating: 8

The 26-year-old had another wonderful game as he made some decent runs to spread City’s defense wide. With Moussa Sissoko and Kyle Walker often playing on the overlap it was really hard for City’s defense to cope.

Toby Alderweireld

Rating: 8.5

The Belgian had another fantastic game as he made some vital challenges and interceptions. His defensive work was excellent throughout the game.

Jan Vertonghen

Rating: 8

Vertonghen often got the ball out of tough situations and gave no space to Aguero in the box.

Danny Rose

Rating: 8.5

Danny Rose was a constant nuisance for City, running full lengths of the pitch to help offensively and defensively. Rose was also involved in Tottenham’s first goal where his cross was mistakenly guided in by Kolarov.

Victor Wanyama

Rating: 8

Despite being a bit rash in his decision making, the Kenyan was the only player in the pivot with Alli often staying up field for long periods. He put in some really good tackles and stopped City numerous times on the counter.

Moussa Sissoko

Rating: 8

Moussa Sissoko’s presence filled the physical void left which Tottenham seemed to lack in absence of Dembele and helped Tottenham in dominating the midfield along with Wanyama.

Erik Lamela

Rating: 6.5

Lamela was quite underwhelming as he often lost possession which often initiated City’s counter. He also deputised for the penalty which was saved by Claudio Bravo.

Christian Eriksen

Rating: 7.5

Eriksen was always a live-wire and did well to maintain pressure up field. He linked the midfield with the attack really well.

Dele Alli

Rating: 8.5

Alli extended Tottenham’s lead with a calm finish from close range. He made some wonderful turns and did well to win a penalty and a free-kick just near the edge of the box.

Heung-Min Son

Rating: 8

The South Korean bagged an assist in the first half as he slipped Alli through who slotted home past Bravo. He was always in the thick of things and interchanged positions with Alli which made life difficult for City at the back.
