Forwards and Subs
Harry Kane 7.5/10
Harry Kane scored his obligatory goal. The England captain pushed off his marker on a corner to thrash home Spurs’ opener. Kane’s close-range shot early in the second half rebounded perfectly to Davies, who struck it well from outside of the box to equalize. Even when he’s not at his best, Kane is always one touch from changing the entire complexion.
Dejan Kulusevski 9/10
Tottenham’s danger man was the focal point of most threatening forward forays. He created several scoring chances and made the most impact of Spurs’ front three.
He had one excellent scoring chance from a throw in that was thwarted by Illan Meslier. Kulu also set up Spurs’ second, passing smartly to Kane before Davies eventually scored. He was then influential on Bentancur’s winner, setting the Uruguayan with a gaping goal from close range.
Richarlison puts in a shift every time he’s on the pitch. However, he is more raw than he should be at this stage of his career. He harries defences and always exhibits a full-blooded effort, but, particularly against Leeds, was let down by his final touch.
Davinson Sanchez 7/10
The Colombian didn’t impact the match too much but made a smart and accurate pass to Kane, whose pass to Kulu eventually led to Tottenham’s winner.
Matt Doherty 7/10
Any time you’re on the field to see a change in momentum is a good thing. Doherty didn’t do too much personally but his presence changed the complexion. He deserves plaudits for that.
Yves Bissouma 6.5/10
He provided Spurs with more stability, like he so often does when replacing Richarlison. He also had a wild shot attempt from long range. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, though.
