Tottenham Hotspur welcomed Leicester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier today as they hoped to earn maximum points in front of their home fans. Spurs made a quick start to the game and got themselves ahead in the 22nd minute courtesy of Harry Kane’s powerful header. The North London giants sat on their lead well and went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Heung-min Son doubled Tottenham’s advantage at the hour mark before going on to score again in the 79th minute with a great strike. Leicester scored a consolation via Kelechi Iheanacho’s goal in injury-time as the match finished 3-1 in favour of Antonio Conte’s men.

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

GK: Hugo Lloris – 6/10

The French keeper made one decent save during the game but won’t be pleased after conceding such a late goal.

CB: Cristian Romero – 7.5/10

Romero was a rock at the back as he performed his defensive duties quite well. He even made two good runs going forward.

CB: Eric Dier – 7/10

Dier cleared his lines when required and was a threat at the other end as well.

CB: Ben Davies – 7/10

He earned the ball back a couple of times and made two decent runs with the ball as well.

RM: Emerson Royal – 7/10

Emerson didn’t do much wrong at the back and completed one good dribble down the right flank.

CM: Rodrigo Bentancur – 8/10

He anchored the midfield really well and had a couple of bright moments in the Leicester half.

CM: Pierre-Emile Højbjerg – 7/10

Hojbjerg protected his backline well and was good on the ball.

LM: Ryan Sessegnon – 7/10

The English talent worked hard defensively and made one good opportunity in the final third.

RW: Lucas Moura – 6/10

He struggled to give a good account of himself in the opponent’s half and got replaced in the 54th minute.

ST: Harry Kane – 7.5/10

Kane was a constant menace in the final third and has got a goal to show for his efforts.

LW: Heung-min Son – 10/10

The South Korea international scored two good goals and created Kane’s opener as well. He deserves to be named the man of the match.

Substitutes:

RW: Dejan Kulusevski – 7.5/10

He came off the bench and secured two assists.

CM: Harry Winks – N/A

Winks added some energy to Conte’s midfield.

LW: Steven Bergwijn – N/A

He didn’t get enough time to influence the game.
