Tottenham player ratings vs Leeds: Kane and Son masterful as Doherty red card taints win
Tottenham: Mourinho calls Fulham postponement 'unprofessional'
Tottenham got back to winning ways at home against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds with a host of players impressing for Jose Mourinho. Harry Kane and Song Heung-min were at their best again but they weren’t the only Spurs players to have a strong game, although Matt Doherty saw red in stoppage time. Express Sport takes a look at how they all rated in the game.
Tottenham player ratings vs Leeds
Hugo Lloris – 6
For all of Leeds’ attacking threat, Lloris had little to do all game. The defensive line in front of him stood strong to keep te visitors at bay.
Matt Doherty – 4
A rare start for Doherty after joining in the summer and joined in the attack on occasion, but Leeds certainly targeted his side of defence as a weakness. Caught out on a number of occasions and was punished in stoppage time for his second booking with a late tackle.
Eric Dier – 7
Another strong performance from Dier at the back. Ball appeared to be a magnet to his head everytime Leeds whipped in a cross.

Toby Alderweireld – 7
Cool, calm and collected from Aldereireld throughout the game and took his goal extremely well with a deft header at the near post.
Ben Davies – 7
Much more defensively sound than Doherty on the right with Leeds struggling to find any space down Tottenham’s left flank.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 7
Becoming undroppable in Tottenham’s midfield. His composure in front of Tottenham’s back line has been missing for years.
Tanguy Ndombele – 8
Slowly starting to see the kind of player Tottenham spent big money on in 2019. Box-to-box performance and looked dangerous every time he came forward with the ball. Excellent display from the Frenchman.
Harry Winks – 6
Played the role alongside Hojbjerg extremely well and showed off his passing range on a number of occasions.
Steven Bergwijn – 7
Missed a couple guilt-edge chances to get on the scoresheet but won the penalty with a brilliant piece of skill.
Harry Kane – 9
Dispatched his penalty with sheer confidence and then put it on a plate for Son to socre his 100th. Looked like he could have scored even more.
Son Heung-min – 9
100 goals for Tottenham now for Son in another wonderful performance from the South Korean.
Moussa Sissoko (on for Winks 76 min) – 6
Lucas Moura (on for Ndombele 78 min) – 6
Carlos Vinicius (on for Kane 87 min) – 6
