Tottenham Hotspur welcomed Nottingham Forest at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier today as they hoped to earn a victory at home in the Premier League. Spurs made a bright start to the game and scored the opening goal in the 19th minute when Harry Kane found the back of the net. The English striker doubled his team’s lead from the penalty spot just 16 minutes later as the North London club went into the half-time break 2-0 up on the scoreline.

Heung-min Son killed the game off when he scored for Tottenham in the 62nd minute. However, Nottingham got a late consolation goal via Joe Worrall’s effort in the 81st minute. The contest ended with Antonio Conte’s men earning a comfortable 3-1 win in front of their home fans.

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

GK: Fraser Forster – 8/10
