  • Alli KOs Madrid as he celebrates his first in win over Real

    Dele Alli fired Tottenham into the Champions League last 16 as his brace inspired a swaggering 3-1 win over Real Madrid that condemned the troubled holders to their first group-stage defeat in five years.

    Here are the player ratings from Wembley.


    Lloris 8: Did everything well, making his saves with assurance, commanding the penalty area from crosses and distributed with accuracy.

    Alderweireld 6: Lasted 24 minutes before hobbling off with a hamstring injury.

    Sanchez 8: Very cool performance in Tottenham’s back three, never looking flustered as he tidied up any loose scraps and used the ball extremely well.

    Vertonghen 7: Solid and strong in the tackle, especially with a very well-timed intervention to deny Ronaldo a shooting chance. Tower of strength at the back.

    Trippier 8: Excellent down the right wing, especially in the first half. Created the goal with a good run and cut-back, and also made another clear chance with a dribble and cross.

    Dier 7: Started in midfield but moved to the back three when Alderweireld went off and did a diligent, controlled job in both positions.

    Winks 7: Played with maturity beyond his years, looking perfectly at home in the centre of the field and helping his team dominate Kroos and Modric.

    Eriksen 7: Struggled to impose himself in the first half but got better as the game went on and finished his chance extremely well for the third goal.

    Davies 7: Had by far the better of his personal duel with Achraf. Defended sensibly and was always available as an outlet down the left wing.

    Alli 9: Outstanding, inventive and clever performance from the two-goal hero. Always willing to link up with Kane, timed his run to perfection for the first goal, deserved his luck for the second and worked tirelessly.

    Kane 7: Had a clear first half chance blocked by Ramos which he perhaps should have taken but clearly unsettled the visiting defence. Did well for the third goal and can be satisfied if not delighted with his display.


    Sissoko 6: Came into midfield when Alderweireld limped off. Produced an air shot to squander a great chance but generally a strong presence in the centre of the pitch.

    Dembele 5: Headless chicken during his brief substitute appearance and lucky not to get sent off for a wild lunge on Ramos.

    Llorente 5: Came on for Kane for the latter stages and wasted a chance for a fourth goal by taking too long to shoot.

    Casilla 5: The defeat or performance were hardly his fault, but could he have dived to cut out Trippier’s cross for the opener?

    Achraf 5: Showed plenty of willingness to get forward but let himself down with a series of poor final balls.

    Nacho 5: All at sea as Alli’s movement and workrate caused him great discomfort, and entirely lacking in his usual defensive solidity.

    Ramos 6: Held together a flimsy defence in the first half, making several timely and important interventions, but powerless after the floodgates opened. Came close from a couple of set-pieces.

    Marcelo 3: Shockingly poor performance from the Brazilian, who is desperately off form. Lost Trippier by a few miles for the opener and was off the ball all night, struggling to convert even simple passes.

    Modric 5: A victim of his team’s lack of structure, the midfielder was unable to knit his team together, often lacking passing options.

    Casemiro 4: Very poor. Unconvincing in possession and lacked his usual defensive steel. Moved into a back three at half-time but struggled there and managed to get himself beaten twice by Alli for the second goal.

    Isco 6: The only Madrid player showing a sense of attacking purpose in the first half, but generally forced to plough a lone furrow. Kept on going with little joy and was subbed with 15 minutes remaining.

    Kroos 5: Surprisingly wayward from the usual metronomic passer, who couldn’t even get his set-piece deliveries right.

    Ronaldo 6: Frustrated by the poor quality of his team’s balls into the box. Kept looking for goalscoring opportunities and eventually pulled one back with a deflected late consolation.

    Benzema 3: Barely featured in the game until a low shot which Lloris saved well just before the break, and did next to nothing after that. Terrible performance.

    Asensio 6: Demanded the ball after coming on for Isco, trying to spark his team, showing energy his teammates notably lacked.

    Mayoral 5: An improvement on Benzema but that’s not saying much.

    Hernandez 4: Looked rather out of his depth and contributed little.
