Tottenham Hotspur are still unbeaten in the Premier League. That is really fun to type every week. This weekend Spurs welcomed Manchester City to White Hart Lane and, for the first time all season, Pep Guardiola’s side were sent home without a goal and without even a single point.

To my eyes, the match was one of the best team performance I’ve seen from Spurs in a long time. I will admit that when the lineup was released, I was concerned, but Pochettino got it exactly right. Moussa Sissoko and Erik Lamela were tireless in their work rate and Heung-Min Son’s movement gave City’s defenders fits. Toby Alderweireld was great, so were Hugo Lloris, Danny Rose, and Kyle Walker.

The real MVP’s of the match, however, were Victor Wanyama and Christian Eriksen. The two midfielders broke up play and start attacks for Spurs on numerous occasions. I can’t think of many midfield performances better than what I saw on Sunday. Maybe peak Sandro and Modric come close, but I’m not even sure those two ever put together such an impressive 90 minutes.

Now it’s time for you to tell us what you think of each player’s performance. Here’s how the ratings work:

  1. I don't even know how to describe this level of bad.
  2. Abysmal
  3. Very bad
  4. Bad
  5. Below Average
  6. Average
  7. Above Average
  8. Good
  9. Very good
  10. World Class or Amazing
