Tottenham player ratings vs Man City: Son Heung-min and Lo Celso send Spurs top

Tottenham Hotspur went top of the Premier League table after a 2-0 win over Manchester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Goals from Son Heung-min and Giovani Lo Celso saw Jose Mourinho’s side make it four straight victories in the top flight. Express Sport takes a look at how each Spurs player did and you can read our individual ratings below.

Hugo Lloris – 7

The sort of commanding figure you need when your backs are to the wall. A captain’s innings.

Serge Aurier – 7

Seemed to always be on the brink of a catastrophic error but somehow always escaped. Remarkable.

Eric Dier – 8

Finally the sort of dominant centre-back performance his club and his country are looking for.

Toby Alderweireld – 9

Incredible backwards tackle on Jesus in the first half set the tone for immaculate defending before limping off.

Sergio Reguilon – 7

Worked so hard to keep Mahrez and often De Bruyne on a leash. Then had Sterling to contend with.

Moussa Sissoko – 6

Ran and ran all day and sometimes, Mourinho will be pleased to note, in the right direction. Great work rate.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 8

Just a spiky, spoiling presence in the middle of anything City tried to achieve. No wonder Mourinho loves him.

Tanguy Ndombele – 7

Superb pass for Son opening goal but was clearly tiring from the chasing he did after that.

Steven Bergwijn – 6

Chased lost causes for most of the evening before finally running out of puff. Needed to hold up ball more.

Harry Kane – 8

Another assist, some vital headers and one particularly amazing tackle. Can be forgiven for not scoring!

Son Heung-min – 7

Never looked like he would miss when put through so early. Job done, he did then struggled to get into game.

Substitutes:

Giovani Lo Celso – (for Ndombele 65) 7

Lucas Moura – (for Moura 73)

Joe Rodon – (for Alderweireld 82)
