Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur side secured their third Premier League win on the trot tonight after a hard-fought 3-0 victory over a Champions League chasing Leicester City outfit this evening. The away side started the game well in the ascendancy, but the London club brought out what can best be described as a typical Jose Mourinho performance. Spurs showed the patience and composure required to soak up the constant Leicester pressure, thereby operating mostly on the counter-attack. A James Justin own goal added to two further Harry Kane finishes were enough to ensure that the home side kept all three points on the night.

Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings Vs Leicester City

Hugo Lloris – 7

The French stopper was required to be on top of his game tonight as the Leicester City attacks kept on coming. Made multiple smart saves and tried to release the ball quickly as well.

Serge Aurier – 5.5

The speedster got caught out of position on various instances all through the ninety, and he struggled to make some simple clearances as well. Caved under Leicester’s constant attacking pressure.

Davinson Sanchez – 6.5

The centre-half, like his partner, didn’t have the most enjoyable of outings, owing largely to the Foxes’ ability to maintain attacking intensity. Some neat passes out but needs to position himself a lot better.

Toby Alderweireld – 6

The Belgian never really looked comfortable at the heart of defence tonight as he was easily surpassed by the Foxes’ forwards on multiple occasions. Needed lots of help from those in front of him.

Ben Davies – 6.5

Didn’t have the most enjoyable night on the flank as he was forced to do a lot of defending. Tried to make some forward advances, but was always pegged back by the Leicester attackers.

Moussa Sissoko – 7.5

The Frenchman was solid in front of the Spurs’ back-line tonight as he protected the centre-halves expertly all through the ninety. Calm in possession and played some good forward passes.

Harry Winks – 7

Moved the ball around with confidence when the home side were in possession, and he was neat when distributing the ball as well. Put in a good shift at the back against the Foxes’ attackers too.

Giovani Lo Celso – 6.5

The midfielder wasn’t involved in proceedings quite as much he would’ve liked tonight as the ball seemed to just pass by him on many occasions. Stayed relaxed and kept the ball moving though.

Lucas Moura – 7

The speedster was clinical with his passing whenever the London club charged forward on the counter-attack. Produced a brilliant assist to release Kane and worked hard at the back too.

Harry Kane – 8.5

The Englishman had one of his most influential outings of the entire campaign tonight as he scored twice within the space of a few minutes in the first half. Took his second goal with great aplomb.

Heung-Min Son – 8

The South Korean trickster had one of his better matches in recent times against the Foxes, as he linked up superbly with the likes of Lo Celso and Kane. Made multiple sharp forward runs as well.
