Tottenham Hotspur player ratings vs Everton

Tottenham Hotspur continued to make a strong claim for the Premier League crown after they secured a thumping 6-2 win over Everton on the road. Son Heung-min was unquestionably the leading performer for the north London giants with two goals and an assist to boost.

Player Ratings:

Hugo Lloris: The Frenchman barely had a kick of the ball in the first half of the game. He could not do much to prevent Gylfi Sigurdsson’s strike following the interval – 6/10

Kieran Trippier: Struggled to cope with the pace in the first half but picked up his showing after the break and played his part for the third goal where his free-kick cannoned off the post into Kane’s path – 7/10

Toby Alderweireld: A relatively comfortable game for the Belgium international, who took control of the proceedings. He will, however, feel that he should have done better to restrict Sigurdsson’s goal – 7/10

Davinson Sanchez: The Colombian returned to the fray for the first time since early November after a hamstring injury. He was assured at the back and handed the threat of Dominic Calvert-Lewin well – 7/10

Ben Davies: A not-so-good game for the Welshman who was caught out by Theo Walcott a few times including the Toffees’ opener. He should have probably done better tracking the second as well – 6/10

Harry Winks: The youngster was neat with his distribution against a Toffees side lacking the presence of Idrissa Gueye in the centre of the park. He is slowly evolving into the go-to man at the heart of the club’s midfield – 6/5/10

Moussa Sissoko: Sissoko has been a player reborn this term. The Frenchman was once more full of running in either side of the pitch and played his part in the club’s second goal on the day – 7.5/10

Heung-Min Son: Took advantage of another goalkeeping blunder from Jordan Pickford to score the opener. He thereafter scored with another low-shot before assisting the club’s final goal. His services will surely be missed next month with the Asian Cup starting – 9/10

Christian Eriksen: The Dane once more sizzled with his wide range of passing and came up with Spurs’s fourth goal with an exquisite shot which found the net with precision – 8.5/10

Dele Alli: Continued his recent good form with another goal for the north Londoners. He was, however, replaced at the break as a precautionary measure after a reckless challenge from Pickford – 7/10

Harry Kane: Back in the starting mix, Kane was unlucky not to open the scoring after his chip shot drifted wide of the post. He, however, made up with a close range finish from a Trippier free-kick before netting the club’s sixth with 15 minutes to spare – 8/10
