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
