After incessant pressing and probing, Tottenham Hotspur salvaged all three points in the final few minutes of the game after scoring three goals in the last 9 minutes of their encounter against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. Tottenham trailed for the majority of the game after Swansea got their first goal early in the game. Dele Alli, Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen all got on the scoresheet after Jordan Ayew set up Wayne Routledge for the first goal. Tottenham’s remarkable comeback helps them maintain pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea who managed to beat Manchester City 2-1. Below are Tottenham’s player ratings:
Vorm didn’t really have much to do between the sticks but did well in the very few times he was called upon. He couldn’t have done much about the first goal.
Walker did well to get into really good positions but his deliveries weren’t accurate enough and he fluffed a lot of good opportunities to cross the ball in.
Alderweireld was culpable in conceding the first goal but was decent after that. His cross-field balls were again regular and his two attempts at the goal weren’t too far away either.
Vertonghen was excellent throughout the game and defended really well at the back.
Ben Davies was quite unimpressive. Jordan Ayew and Wayne Routledge got the better of him throughout the game.
After having played as a centre-back for most of the season, it was tough for Dier to settle quickly into the midfield, but he did quite well in impeding Swansea’s progress on a number of occasions.
Dembele was immense and did an excellent job in holding the midfield along with Dier. He also dictated the tempo of the game, often dribbling and out-muscling past Swansea defenders to help maintain possession of the ball during attacks.
Sissoko did well to play small passes and helped in keeping the tempo up. He didn’t try anything fancy.
Alli was fantastic throughout the game, making excellent improvised passes which showcased his guile. He also got the goal after being at the right place at the right time.
Eriksen was again impressive, playing superb through-balls and dinked-crosses into the box. He also got the third goal to kill the game off.
Son struggled with first touches in the box and also with his finishing but got the important second goal.
Janssen had a decent impact after coming on and seemed relatively more confident on the ball. He played quite well with his back to the goal.
N’koudou did well in the little time he was on the field playing a few good passes and keeping possession of the ball despite pressure.
Trippier played too little to warrant a rating.
