Tottenham Hotspur kickstarted their 2021/22 Premier League campaign with an emphatic 1-0 win over Manchester City. It was a valiant performance from the Lilywhites who were defensively strong and played with a lot of commitment. It was Son Heung-Min’s second-half strike that turned out to be the main difference between the two sides, giving his team the perfect start to the new era under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Tottenham Hotspur Player Ratings Vs Manchester City
Hugo Lloris: 7/10
Hugo Lloris didn’t have much to do as Manchester City failed to find the target on many occasions. A relatively easy clean sheet for the Tottenham shot-stopper.

Japhet Tanganga was one of the best players on the pitch, producing a hard-working display in the park. He was a defensive rock throughout the game for the home side.
Davinson Sanchez: 9/10
Davinson Sanchez was a reliable presence at the heart of the Tottenham backline. Won several headed duels to prevent his side from falling into trouble. A very good performance overall.
Eric Dier: 8/10
Eric Dier produced a hard-working display alongside Sanchez in the Spurs backline. His experience was handy in guiding his team through such a mighty Manchester City attack.
Sergio Reguilon: 8/10
Sergio Reguilon had a good game on the far side. He stayed true to his defensive marker, offering stability on the far side for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men. May improve a lot under the new manager.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg: 8/10
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was the most vital cog in Tottenham’s second line of press. His tenacity was crucial in pressing the Manchester City midfielders and preventing them from dominating the game.
Oliver Skipp: 8/10
Oliver Skipp fared well in such a crucial encounter. He stuck to his task, playing particularly well in possession while also being close to his marker in the middle of the park.
