Tottenham Hotspur are now ¼ into the season, and 25 different players have made an appearance for the club, so of those 25 who are the best five thus far on form?

After dropping points to begin the stretch of games between the October and November international breaks, Tottenham Hotspur mostly righted the ship and are positioned to have a say in things moving forward. Having lost only twice in all competitions – opening day to Everton in League and on Matchday 2 of the Europa League at Royal Antwerp.

Having bounced back from those two outings and minus a couple draws, Spurs have been good overall and are advancing on all fronts. Who can the fans most thank for that advancement? Harry Kane and Heung Min Son were tied atop of our first Top V of the season, are they still sharing that position now?

Tottenham Top Five

Tanguy Ndombele – #6 (-1) Bonus Ranking!!

For starters I need to say Tanguy Ndombele has not been playing poorly. That said, he has certainly not quite hit the level of his first couple Premier League starts this season in his last two, but different games and different set-ups play more to his strengths than others. Clearly motivated, fit, and contributing, he is the player Spurs paid so much for, but is just outside our top five now after being #5 last time.

Lucas Moura #5 (-1)

Lucas Moura can drive fans mad with his running, which sometimes is perfectly time – think Amsterdam – and other times not so much – think of Moura somehow not scoring this past Thursday versus Ludogorets when Harry Kane had put the ball on a platter. But the one thing you can count on is Lucas Moura running hard.

Fortunately for Tottenham, Moura’ hard work and running pay off more often than they do not. While currently only 11th on the team in minutes Moura is tied for first in appearances, has the third most goals (4) and is tied with the 4th most assists (2). Lucas is one of only 5 Spurs to currently have both a goal and an assist and is one of only three – with Son and Kane – who has more than 1 of each.

While Lucas has not had the same kind of impact tackling players this season, he has been excellent recovering the ball, with 54 recoveries in all competitions according to  At this point Lucas Moura knows it is his place Gareth Bale is most likely to take, but the Brazilian is not going to just give it away and his increasing production is good for the team.

Sergio Reguilón #4 (NR)

Sergio Reguilón has been an excellent addition to the Tottenham team this season. A clear offensive contributor from the off and currently third on the team with three assists; Sergio Reguilón has better than average pace and excellent ball control. At times he is so silky with the ball and so far up the pitch you forget he is a defender.

We have gotten on Sergio for his defensive awareness at times this season, but we saw in the most recent game against West Brom, that Reguilón is a more than capable defender who can stay back and defend with gusto if the situation calls for it. In fairness he is being asked to contribute on the offensive side more than defend, which he has done well. According to his current goal creating actions per 90 minutes of .50 is by far the best of his career. So, while some of his defensive stats are down, his offensive contribution is up from Sevilla.
