Tottenham player ratings vs Norwich: Ben Davies a major threat with Oliver Skipp improving every game

Tottenham continued their resurgence under Antonio Conte with a 3-0 home win over Norwich on Sunday.

The Canaries were unbeaten in four games but Lucas Moura’s rocket, and second-half goals from Davinson Sanchez and Heung-min Son ensured Spurs remain unbeaten in the League under Conte and kept the pressure on the top four.

Dan Kilpatrick was at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to run the rule over the Spurs players...

Hugo Lloris 7

Should have been punished for a sloppy early pass when under pressure but solid enough, as Norwich squandered their best openings.

Davinson Sanchez 7

Gets an extra mark for a crucial goal, which came just as Norwich were growing in confidence. Defensively, he was given an uncomfortable afternoon but Norwich were wasteful.

Eric Dier 7

Suffered a few difficult moments, including a back pass which left Lloris under serious pressure, but helped Spurs to another clean sheet.

Ben Davies 8

Remarkably, he is increasingly a major attacking threat and made both Spurs’ second-half goals, flicking on Son’s corner for the second goal, then playing in the South Korean after a one-two with Skipp. Calm with and without the ball at the back.

Japhet Tanganga 5

Run ragged by Brandon Williams after the interval and it was no surprise when he was hooked for Doherty.

Sergio Reguilon 6

Forced off through injury in a blow to Spurs and Conte. The Spaniard was beginning to find his feet as a wing-back. Hopefully it’s not serious.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 7

Happy to do the dirty work at the base of midfield, allowing Skipp licence to push forward. Looks like he is trying more one-touch passes under Conte.

Oliver Skipp 8

Improving with every game under Conte, particularly in possession. A lung-busting run from his own half to the edge of Norwich’s box was particularly impressive, although some of his tackling was equally eye-catching. Helped make Son’s goal.

Lucas Moura 8

Full of clever touches and purposeful runs, and scored in a rocket. Difficult for Norwich to contain, particularly in the first half.

Heung-min Son 7

Back on a hot streak after scoring for the second time in four days in another lively display.

Harry Kane 6

By his standards, it was another deeply frustrating afternoon of missed chances. Nonetheless, he often threatened and won the corner leading to the second goal by extending Krul with a fierce effort.

Subs

Ryan Sessegnon (Reguilon 22’) 7

Put in a coupe of dangerous crosses but Spurs missed Reguilon’s thrust. Shame he is suspended for Rennes on Thursday night.

Matt Doherty (Tanganga 62’) 7

Deserved credit for cutting inside to create a good chance for Kane, leading to the corner for the second goal, and fired a decent effort just over the bar. Should have an opportunity to make a positive impression on Thursday.

Steven Bergwijn (Lucas 79’) 6

Limited time to make an impression but forced a dangerous corner after a positive run down the right flank.

Not used: Gollini, Rodon, Winks, Dele, Ndombele, Scarlett.
