Tottenham Hotspur secured their third win in six days on Saturday by beating Burnley 2-1 at White Hart Lane.
First-half goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela – either side of an Ashley Barnes wonderstrike – gave Spurs the points which move them up to sixth place in the Premier League table.
Here’s how Mauricio Pochettino’s men rated:
GK: Hugo Lloris – 7/10
It took a wonderstrike to beat him.
RB: Kyle Walker – 6/10
Untroubled defensively, but rather underwhelming going forward.
CB: Federico Fazio – 5.5/10
Did some very good defending in patches, but his overall lack of speed is still a big worry. He got outpaced by Danny Ings, but, fortunately for Spurs, Lloris came to the rescue.
CB: Jan Vertonghen – 6.5/10
Solid throughout and looked really comfortable in possession, even with Burnley playing a very busy high press.
LB: Ben Davies – 6.5/10
Picked up a yellow card on two minutes for a late tackle on George Boyd. Did well after that poor start, though.
CM: Ryan Mason – 7/10
One of the best players on the pitch in the first half. He was taken off just before the break with an injury. Tottenham missed him.
CM: Nabil Bentaleb – 7/10
Another classy and dominant display from the Algerian, who is becoming the player that the under-motivated Mousa Dembele should be.
AM: Erik Lamela – 7.5/10
Looked confident right from the word go, but that confidence grew after he cut inside from the right and bent a brilliant long shot into the net to score his first ever Premier League goal. His link-up play was excellent and he constantly wanted the ball.
