After that, Tottenham thoroughly dominated the game with Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen finding the back of the net again. Below are Tottenham’s individual player ratings.
The Frenchman didn’t have much to do with Swansea having only one shot on target.
The right-back had a fantastic game as he not only managed to neutralize Swansea’s left-hand side but had a lot of impact offensively as well.
Dier had relatively much less to do but did his job well at the back, with a few interceptions and blocks.
Vertonghen had a decent game too as he did quite well with his positioning and was also calm and composed at the back.
With Tottenham dominating, Rose did really well to get into wide positions to enable Tottenham to stretch Swansea wide. His defensive work was quite commendable too.
Wanyama was a rock defensively and gave Tottenham the dominance in the midfield as he managed to keep possession against several Swansea midfielders.
Moussa Dembele formed an excellent midfield role with Wanyama which helped Tottenham to not only maintain possession but also recover it quickly and hinder Swansea’s build of play.
Eriksen was quite incisive with his passing and also contributed with two goals. Although he got quite lucky with the first goal, he thoroughly deserved the second one.
Alli was immensely influential offensively and formed an excellent partnership with Kane as both the players kept interchanging their positions which made them really difficult to defend against.
Son scored an excellent goal as he found the back of the net with an overhead kick. He was an absolute nuisance to defend against with several great runs down Swansea’s right.
Kane dispatched calmly from the penalty spot to give Tottenham the lead and scored another good goal after Son laid one from him near the edge of the box. He was excellent throughout the game and was involved in almost everything good for Tottenham.
Sissoko made a few decent runs down Swansea’s left and also bagged an assist for Tottenham’s fifth goal.
Winks did not play enough to warrant a rating.
Onomah did not play enough to warrant a rating.
