Spurs Player Ratings

Quick first half analysis

Lloris—Excellent as usual at rushing off his line to sweep up. Beaten by Bony, saved by his woodwork.

Walker—Making very good runs down the right but lacking end product.

Dawson—Dominated by Bony at times but covering well.

Chiriches—Accomplished in possession, looking impressive.

Rose—Better than Walker on and off the ball, except one very, very wayward shot.

Bentaleb—Struggling to control Swansea breaking through the middle.

Dembele—Not in the picture for half an hour but starting to pull the strings later in the half.

Eriksen—Looks a real threat with his use of space. Great delivery for the goal.

Lennon—His pace always an outlet. Usual fare from him.

Chadli—In and out of the game but linking up well in patches.

Adebayor—Someone must have told him he's only on loan. Leading line well, good movement and causing problems.


Quick second half analysis

Lloris—Largely untroubled as his team dominated. Two good saves, beaten by a fine volley.

Walker—Fine running and stretching of the game again but, as far too often the case, final ball is terrible.

Dawson—Stronger after the break, defended well.

Chiriches—An excellent acquisition had an excellent game.

Rose—Not as involved breaking forward but played well and prevented Swansea playing down their right.

Bentaleb—Came to the fore once his team dominated. Neat in possession, recycles well.

Dembele—One big moment of poor decision making won't ultimately cost Spurs when he shot instead of passing square. Other than that, a fair performance.

Eriksen—Revelled in the space afforded him by a woeful and disorganised defence.

Lennon—Usual from Lennon—uses space well, stretches play.

Chadli—No great impact and subbed.

Adebayor—Best on the pitch, bullied the defence, used the ball well and scored twice.
