Arsenal v Tottenham – Player Ratings


Petr Cech – 7

Produced a huge save from Alderweireld at 1-0

Mathieu Debuchy – 6

Dealt better with Eriksen than he did with Bayern’s wingers in midweek

Per Mertesacker – 5

Caught out for Kane’s goal when he got dragged out of position

Laurent Koscielny – 6

Not been at his best this season but showed some improvement

Nacho Monreal – 6

Kept the Spurs threat to a minimum

Santi Cazorla – 5

Withdrawn at half-time after another poor display

Francis Coquelin – 5

Came off second-best in the midfield battle

Joel Campbell – 5

Still struggling to make his mark on this team

Mesut Özil – 7

A few great deliveries, including one for the equalising goal

Alexis Sanchez – 6

Struggled again to make his mark on the game

Olivier Giroud – 4

Guilty of one poor miss and one dreadful one. Will be disappointed not to push on after his goal in Germany


Mathieu Flamini – 6

Added a greater balance

Kieran Gibbs – 7

Took his goal well and will be in contention for a run in the starting line-up

Mikel Arteta  – N/A

Good to see him continue his recovery from injury

Tottenham Hotspur

Hugo Lloris – 6

Sometimes hesitant coming for crosses; could have been punished more on another day

Kyle Walker – 7

Quietly impressive and made a great crunching tackle to deny an Arsenal break in the second half.

Toby Alderweireld – 7

Solid defensively and unlucky not to score

Jan Vertonghen – 6

Unnecessary tussle with Giroud overshadowed his performance

Danny Rose – 7

Great ball for Kane’s goal and contained Campbell well

Eric Dier – 7

Added some impressive forward bursts to his defensive solidity but wasted an early headed chance

Mousa Dembele – 8

Finally starting to look like the player who Spurs signed from Fulham for £15m

Erik Lamela – 5

Booked for a poor tackle and didn’t really get in the game

Dele Alli – 5

One of his quieter games in a Spurs shirt

Christian Eriksen – 6

Threatened from dead-ball situations but maybe the wrong man to attack Arsenal’s weak link at right-back

Harry Kane – 7

Impressed in the lone striker’s role – took his goal well and almost found a second out of absolutely nothing


Son Heung-Min – 5

Didn’t do much on his return to Premier League action

Ryan Mason – N/A

Spurs fans might have liked him to get more than eight minutes

Josh Onomah – N/A

Had no time to make any real impact
