Tottenham Hotspur player ratings against Southampton:
Had a pretty comfortable outing for the Frenchman but conceded the goal which he could do nothing about.
The Brazilian could not provide much attacking threat and in the end, was taken off in the second half.
Didn’t require to do much defensively after the opposition went down to 10 men. So, it was a comfortable night for the Colombian.
The centre back didn’t require much defensive work in the second half.
The Welshman played his part really well in defence and overall a good performance.
The Spaniard did enjoy a great first half and was substituted at the interval, having picked up a booking.
Could become an integral part of Antonio Conte’s system in future as he made quite a few great passes from the deep.
Started against his former employer but lacked creativity. Therefore, Conte’s side struggled to create many chances to score.
Need to pick up his level. He has to link up more with the forward players to stay in the first eleven.
The South Korean had yet another great day, won the penalty and was also the best player on the pitch for the visitors.
Converted the penalty well and looked very good. Positive signs for the Spurs fans.
Replaced Alli around the hour mark and had a good moment to score but his first touch wasn’t good enough. The Brazilian should start ahead of Dele Alli.
Played the whole second half and had a decent game but should have provided better crosses for the forward players.
Replaced Emerson and tried to provide crosses for the strikers but the quality of the deliveries was not up to the mark.
