published :

Ashley Barnes scored the opening goal of the game

Mauricio Pochettino’s men managed to hold to all three points this weekend in a tough encounter against newly promoted Burnley in the Premier League. Though Ashley Barnes gave the visitors the lead inside 15 minutes, goals from Dele Alli and Danny Rose gave the hosts a much-needed victory as they keep up the pressure on the clubs in the top-4 spots in the league this season. Sean Dyche’s side put in a gritty performance at the end, giving the White Hart Lane a nervy quarter of an hour but the manager will be happy that his side were able to hold on to their 1 goal advantage to take all three points. There were a number of impressive performances on the night and here are the player ratings for the side for this game:

Hugo Lloris (6):

Though showed a bit of nerves at the start, the French star put in a commanding enough performance to win his side all three points from this game.

Kyle Walker (7):

An energetic presence at both ends of the field, Walker did well to keep Burnley away from danger and also helped to provide some width at times in attack in a decent performance picking up an assist.

Eric Dier (6):

Stuck to his task well at the back as he kept the Burnley attackers away from the goal for most of the time to give his side all three points.

Jan Vertonghen (6):

Put in a decent performance at the back and could not do much to stop the only goal Burnley scored on a testing night.

Danny Rose (9):

Tottenham celebrate Danny Rose's winner

The man of the match on the night, Rose put in a terrific performance right from the first whistle as he helped Tottenham Hotspur create a number of chances before finding the back of the net for the winner. He was also strong in defense giving Burnley no space and time on the ball in a match winning performance.

Harry Winks (6):

The youngster put in a decent performance in the middle of the park for Tottenham but could have done better to clear the ball in the build up to Barnes’ goal early in the game.

Victor Wanyama (7):

Sat back between the center backs well to allow his mates to rotate the ball and also helped them in front of the back four when needed to see out another victory.

Mousa Dembele (6);

Though did not do anything extra-ordinary, the Belgian midfielder stuck to his task well in the midfield, controlling the tempo of the game to help his side dominate possession for long periods.

Christian Eriksen (7):

Slowly getting back in his previous best, the Danish international put in a brilliant performance on the night, helping his side pile the pressure on Burnley to help his side to a victory.

Dele Alli (7):

Dele Alli responded shortly after

The English international opened the scoring on the night for the hosts as he was a constant menace in the final third for Burnley.

Harry Kane (5):

The star English striker started the game strongly but slowly drifted away and found it hard to create or take chances on a frustrating night at the White Hart Lane.


Moussa Sissoko (8):

Came early in the second half and made a huge impact, giving his side an extra edge in the attack while also setting up the winner for Rose late in the game.

Heung-Min Son (7):

Was given just around 20 minutes of the game and should have got himself a goal but put in an impressive performance otherwise from the bench on the night.

Ben Davis (5):

Came on to replace Danny Rose late in the game as a precaution and did well to see off the game in the end under some pressure from the visitors.
