An enjoyable game all in all and not just because Spurs won. Bournemouth will be wondering how the hell a 1-0 was so nearly a 2-2, but ended up being a 1-4.
Rose Deteriorated into a clockwork toy that’s got a spring missing.
Verts I think it’s more accurate to say Wilson had a good game, opposed to young Jan suddenly developing a question mark above his head. In fact, had Vertonghen not been there, Bournemouth would have had far more joy.
Man Of The Match Serge Aurier delivered in all departments, thrills, spills and most importantly of all, comedy. I’m kidding on that ‘most importantly of all’ bit of course; his defending was actually at far higher standard than it has been on previous occasions.
Well done, my old son.
Lamela I take back every word. His hips went wrong because he broken them. He moves likes he believes that he’s triple jointed down there. Bewildering stuff.
Wanayama Why is he still not fully fit?
The REAL Man Of The Match Was Dele Alli. I’ve used Opta stats to prove my contempt for his performances and now I’ll use them to prove how excellent he was.
His first 30 minutes were the usual nondescript but the rest was comprised of what I keep being told he is. Dele’s pass accuracy rate was 82%.
Look at that graph. The boy became a pivotal player. For those of you joining us late, this was his first brilliant game for Spurs.
Eriksen Superbly influential. A menace.
Son What has become a trademark performance; whereby he’s the hero and the zero. Scores a brace but so much bumbling about and limpness otherwise.
Kane Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
