Tottenham Hotspur welcomed Vitesse at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier tonight as they focused on securing a positive result following a dismal 3-0 defeat versus Manchester United last weekend. Spurs made an excellent start to the game as they raced to a 3-0 lead within the first 30 minutes following a goal each from Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura and an own goal from Jacob Rasmussen. It was Rasmussen who made amends for his own goal by scoring at the correct end in the 32nd minute before Matus Bero made things interesting again when he found the back of the net before the half-time break.

The two sides lost their discipline in the second half after Cristian Romero, Danilho Doekhi and Markus Schubert were all sent off by the referee. Antonio Conte’s men hung on to their narrow advantage and ended up securing a hard-fought 3-2 victory in front of their home supporters.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player fared during the match against Vitesse.

GK: Hugo Lloris – 6.5/10

The French keeper pulled off a few solid saves but won’t be pleased at all after letting in two goals in the first half.

CB: Eric Dier – 6/10

Dier could have done better to prevent Rasmussen’s goal. Otherwise, he had a solid game at the back.

CB: Cristian Romero – 4/10

Romero let his teammates down by getting booked twice and being sent off within the first 60 minutes. Fortunately for him, Spurs ended up winning the match.

CB: Ben Davies – 6/10

He made a sloppy start to the game but recovered well and produced a good defensive display in the second half.

RM: Emerson Royal – 7.5/10

Emerson was a great outlet for Spurs down the right flank and managed to create a lot of problems for the visitors.

CM: Oliver Skipp – 6/10

He failed to offer enough protection for his teammates at the back in the first half. He ran out of gas and got replaced in the 73rd minute.

CM: Pierre-Emile Højbjerg – 7/10

Hojbjerg offered some bite and steel to Antonio Conte’s midfield and made two key chances in the final third.

LM: Sergio Reguilon – 7/10

The Spaniard was always looking to get forward and join in on the attack. He even cleared his lines when required.

RW: Lucas Moura – 6.5/10

Lucas doubled Spurs’ advantage with a composed finish in the 22nd minute. However, he was at fault for giving away the ball cheaply in the lead-up to Vitesse’s second goal.

ST: Harry Kane – 7/10

Kane picked up an assist for setting up Lucas Moura’s goal. However, he did not manage to get his name on the scoresheet which will worry the Tottenham fans.

LW: Heung-min Son – 7.5/10

The South Korea international gave his team the lead with a good finish in the 14th minute. He got replaced in the 72nd minute.

Substitutes:

CM: Tanguy Ndombele – 6/10

He offered very little after coming off the bench.

CM: Harry Winks – 6/10

Winks added some energy to Tottenham’s midfield.

CB: Davinson Sanchez – 6/10

Sanchez did enough to see out the win late in the game.

CAM: Giovani Lo Celso – N/A

He didn’t get enough minutes to warrant a rating.
