Tottenham v Man Utd player ratings

Tottenham’s title bid suffered a setback as they were beaten by Manchester United. Here’s how we rated each Spurs player in the 1-0 defeat at Wembley.

HUGO LLORIS: There were slight question marks over his effort for United’s goal having got a hand to Marcus Rashford’s effort, but made three fine saves after the break. 7 (out of 10)

KIERAN TRIPPIER: Was at fault for United’s opening goal as he carelessly gave possession away to Paul Pogba and was poor throughout most of the game. 5

TOBY ALDERWEIRELD: Playing against the team who were keen to sign him in the summer, he was the most assured of Tottenham’s back line and almost scored. 7

JAN VERTONGHEN: Making his first start after eight games out with a thigh injury his lack of pace was exposed by United’s speedy frontline. 5

BEN DAVIES: Davies registered hid 100th Premier League appearance for Spurs and was solid, if unspectacular. 6

MOUSSA SISSOKO: Was putting himself about in his usual all-action style until succumbing to a hamstring injury before half-time and Spurs conceded within two minutes. 7

HARRY WINKS: Who knows how the game might have been different if Winks stuck away an early chance? He was busy and industrious but made way for Fernando Llorente. 7

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN: Linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer, Eriksen stepped up after a poor first half and was often the architect of endless Tottenham attacks. 7

DELE ALLI: Had three fine chances to equalise, the second of which he should have buried, but came up against an inspired David De Gea. 7

SON HEUNG-MIN: Playing his last game before heading to Dubai to join up with South Korea at the Asian Cup but did not have the impact he would have hoped for. 6

HARRY KANE: On another day he would have had a hat-trick but De Gea had other ideas. Was Tottenham’s main goal threat and produced impressive link-up play. 8

ERIK LAMELA (on for Sissoko 43): Tried to offer a different dimension in attack but invariably chose the wrong option. 6

FERNANDO LLORENTE (on for Winks 81): Thrown on as part of the cavalry, missed a golden chance. 5
