Tottenham player ratings: Who impressed in victory over Manchester United?

Written by

Tottenham played their final match at White Hart Lane on Sunday, as they recorded a 2-1 win over Manchester United.

It was a good way to sign off as they delivered a dominant performance to beat one of their top-six rivals. The goals came through Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane, but Spurs didn’t manage to score the final goal at the stadium, as that honour fell to Wayne Rooney.

Although the title is now beyond, Mauricio Pochettino’s men remained committed on the field and that will have gone down well with the supporters.

Here are how their player rated on Sunday…

Hugo Lloris – The Frenchman had a relatively quiet afternoon. There was little he could do to prevent the goal and he had little to do apart from that. 6

Kieran Trippier – The right back was tidy in possession and offered good support down the right hand side. During the match, he completed four ball recoveries and contributed in both halves of the pitch. 6

Toby Alderweireld – He was consistently in the right place at the right time, as shown by his total of six clearances. His passing was impressive as always and he helped keep United at bay for most of the match. It was a solid display from the centre back. 6

Jan Vertonghen – The Belgian outshone his centre-back partner as he completed two ball recoveries and finished the match with a 92% pass accuracy. He is classy on the ball and a joy to watch when he is on form. 7

Ben Davies – It has been a good end to the season for the Welshman as Tottenham haven’t really missed Danny Rose. He got the assist for the first goal with a great cross, showing his ability in the attacking third. 7

Eric Dier – The England international was decent without ever standing out on Sunday. His distribution was tidy in the middle of the park, while he competed well in the air, with three successful aerial duels. 6

Victor Wanyama – He was an unlikely goalscorer, but it was a nice finish and put his side into the ascendency early on. However, it was his ball-winning ability that was most impressive as he made an impressive six ball recoveries. A good performance to mark the final game at White Hart Lane. 9

Christian Eriksen – The Dane was busy in midfield and caused problems with his movement coupled with his quality final ball. He made a match-high five key passes and showed his ability from the dead ball with some dangerous set piece deliveries. The second goal came as a result of Eriksen’s creativity and he certainly played his part in an impressive team performance. 7

Dele Alli – The young midfielder caused problems with his movement, but he couldn’t have the desired impact against Manchester United. He was wasteful in the final third as shown by him being dispossessed on three occasions. 5

Son Heung-Min – He worked hard and very impressive when it came to pressing the Manchester United defence, completing three ball recoveries. However, his final ball was lacking and he couldn’t mark his performance with a goal. 6

Harry Kane – The England international will be pleased to mark his final appearance at White Hart Lane with a goal. It was a smart finish and emphasised the technique that the striker possesses. On another day, he could have got more than one as he was denied by the woodwork in the first half. 8

Mousa Dembele – He was solid after coming on and didn’t misplace a pass in his short cameo display. The Belgian added energy to the midfield to help see the game out. 6

Kyle Walker – It was evident that the Englishman wanted to impress as he worked hard in his short time on the pitch, completing three ball recoveries. 6

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou – He wasn’t on the pitch long enough to earn a rating. N/A
