Alli and Eriksen were among the Spurs attackers to star in win over Chelsea.

Tottenham delivered a stunning performance to end Chelsea‘s unbeaten start to the season, with Dele Alli, Harry Kane, and Son Heung-min getting the goals in a 3-1 win.

The victory should silence some of the criticism surrounding Spurs this season, as they tore their derby rivals apart in a dominant display.

Here’s how the players rated.

STARTING XI

Hugo Lloris 7 – Barely had anything to do, but the few times he was called into action, he acquitted himself well.

Serge Aurier 8 – Aurier would have expected a tougher test, matched up against Eden Hazard, but he handled the threat of the Belgian with surprising ease.

Juan Foyth 6 – Lucky not to give away a penalty when Spurs’ lead was just one goal, but defended well otherwise. Won his duel with Alvaro Morata handily.

Toby Alderweireld 7 – Alderweireld was largely untroubled in defence, showing how toothless Chelsea were. He and Foyth have struck up a good partnership that handled whatever little Chelsea could throw at them.

Ben Davies 8 – An excellent display from Davies on the flank, the Welshman was calm and composed in possession and got forward regularly.

Eric Dier 8 – One of the England midfielder’s best displays in a long time, as he helped Tottenham control the game from the middle of the park. Didn’t let Chelsea, and Jorginho especially, settle into any sort of rhythm.

Moussa Sissoko 8 – The Frenchman’s resurgent season continued on Saturday as he put in a dominant display in midfield, haranguing Jorginho and supporting both attack and defence with aplomb.

Christian Eriksen 9 – Pulled the strings in midfield with his usual array of passing, and set up Tottenham’s win by assisting the first goal with a typically brilliant free-kick.

Dele Alli 8 – Scored one, probably should have had another, and picked up an assist as well. Alli loves playing against Chelsea – that’s now six goals and two assists in six games against the Blues – and this was another stellar display.

Son Heung-min 8 – Missed one easy chance in the first half, but made amends with a stunning second-half goal. Chelsea couldn’t handle his pace and trickery in support of Kane.

Harry Kane 8 – Loses marks for an incredible second-half miss from six yards out. Apart from that one, particularly shocking, blemish, Kane was excellent, scoring with a good strike and driving Tottenham forward.

SUBSTITUTES

Erik Lamela 7 – Came on and delighted the crowd with some cheeky dribbling, as he reveled in Spurs’ dominance.

Harry Winks N/A – Brought on as a late substitute with barely any time left to have an impact.
