The substitutes were not many, but both managed to catch the eye as Spurs remain unbeaten under fill-in boss Cristian Stellini.

Tottenham Coaching and Substitute Ratings

Cristian Stellini – 9

Maybe the story within the story right now is just how well Spurs have been performing under assistant coach Stellini. Whether it is less pressure without Conte on the sidelines or this is just how things would have gone, the team looked a rightful Conte side with Stellini calling the shots from the sidelines. A little shout also goes to Ryan Mason, who is a part of this success. However, you can count me in the camp that believes Spurs are still better with Conte in tow. That said, Stellini’s side was great, and the start of the second half was perfect; well-done, coach.

Heung-min Son – 6.5

Coming on with just under ten minutes to play is not the Korean superstar’s preference, but Son made an impact in that time. Getting the pre-assist with a delightful corner kick that Dier and Kane turned into goal number two will have to do in Son’s cameo.

Pedro Porro – 6.5

Speaking of cameo, Pedro Porro made his home debut with one minute to go in regulation, replacing Richarlison up front. This shows that Porro, who was signed to play right-wing-back, has some flexibility, which is good, given Deki’s injury history and Royal’s recent performance. More tantalizing was Porro’s play on the ball. Although it was very limited minutes, you can see the Spaniard’s desire to dribble and drive with the ball, attacking the opposition. There is no doubt more minutes are coming somewhere for Porro.
