Tottenham player ratings: Sanchez and Royal impress, Bergwijn poor

The Brazilian returned home during a period of pressure from Spurs and the visitors resisted a late rally from Burnley to reach the bottom eight.

Dan Kilpatrick was at Turf Moor to assess Spurs players …

Barely tested all night as Burnley only managed one shot on target.

Secured his delivery with an assist for Lucas after hitting a few previous crosses, and was solid defensively.]

Seemed to enjoy physical battle and flew tackles and blocks. The best center-half that passes available to Nuno too.

In the right place to make a crucial intervention as Burnley rallied late, as he used his pace to mop up the balls behind. A decent service.

The distribution was mixed and offered few attacks on the left flank. But quite solid at night.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – 6

The passes were limited but did their job by filtering out the four full backs.

There are questions about the effectiveness of the Hojbjerg-Skipp pivot and Spurs have improved significantly after his replacement. Nonetheless, he actually played pretty well, keeping Spurs running.

The decision making was abject and he had no impact until he was replaced. Was not helped by the challenge of a succession of long balls.

When given room to lift his head, he made a difference, including in the preparation for the goal. But too often slow to let go of the ball.
