Tottenham Hotspur somehow edged out Everton in a lucky win where they had to rely on an own goal from Michael Keane. Although the Lilywhites impressed defensively, the lack of firepower in the offensive department continues to cause them problems. However, the win itself should undoubtedly boost their confidence ahead of the upcoming north London derby this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings Vs Everton
Hugo Lloris 6/10
A pretty quiet evening for Hugo Lloris who had absolutely nothing to save aside from keeping hold of a tame effort from Moise Kean late in the game. His biggest involvement was to get in a spat with Son Heung-Min at the end of the first half.
Serge Aurier 6.5/10
It wasn’t the worst performance from Serge Aurier in a Tottenham kit. However, the Ivorian looked completely useless going forward and lacked inspiration. Defensively, he did make a couple of crucial interceptions, providing solidity on the right flank.
Toby Alderweireld 7.5/10
The introduction of Toby Alderweireld did indeed work wonders for Jose Mourinho, as we had predicted. His composure and experience, combined with his expertise in the build-up play were key in silencing the Everton attack.
Eric Dier 8/10
Following a horrendous display against Sheffield United, Eric Dier did well to bounce back to form, with a brilliant defensive effort this evening. His aerial and physical prowess were crucial as Tottenham kept the likes of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin quiet throughout the game.
Ben Davies 7.5/10
This was by far Ben Davies’ best game under Jose Mourinho. The Welshman provided a lot of solidity on the left flank, keeping the likes of Tom Davies and Bernard completely quiet.
Harry Winks 8/10
The introduction of Harry Winks was paid off as the midfielder played a starring role in central midfield. His technical prowess helped Tottenham become more effective in the build-up, with the youngster notably threading 60 passes with an accuracy of 97%.
Moussa Sissoko 7.5/10
With someone like Winks providing assurance in the build-up play, Moussa Sissoko was allowed to play his natural game. And unsurprisingly, the Frenchman did provide a lot of energy and enthusiasm that helped Tottenham contain the Everton midfield.
Lucas Moura 6.5/10
A decent display from Lucas Moura, whose hard-working nature and willingness to close down possession made Spurs more effective in the first line of press. However, he has been ineffective going forward, as ever.
Giovani Lo Celso 8.5/10
One of the better performers for Tottenham this evening, Giovani Lo Celso did provide a semblance of quality forward. He looked menacing at times and was always on the lookout for chances. It was his shot that deflected off Michael Keane for the all-important opener. A strong contender for being the man of the match.
Son Heung-Min 6/10
An eventful game for Son Heung-Min, who most notably was involved in a spat with Lloris at half-time. He wasn’t majorly effective in the final third aside from providing passing options for the Tottenham midfielders.
Harry Kane 5/10
A quiet evening for Harry Kane, who was pretty underwhelming throughout the game. The English international made questionable decisions in the final third and wasn’t involved much in the build-up play. It was combined with a lack of service.
Steven Bergwijn (N/A)
Replaced Son in the 78th minute but provided very little threat going forward. He was virtually invisible.
Erik Lamela (N/A)
Erik Lamela offered spark and dynamism in the Tottenham attack after replacing Lucas in the 82nd minute. Made a silly foul as well.
Jan Vertonghen (N/A)
A late replacement for the tiring Lo Celso.
