Tottenham player ratings vs Preston: Resurgent Son and Danjuma offer insight but Sessegnon squanders win

After a lackluster first half, Son fired Spurs with a superb ranged mark shot before doubling their lead with a cool finish inside the box.

Danjuma, a second-half substitute, marked his debut with a first finish to see the Championship side.

Dan Kilpatrick was in Deepdale to assess Spurs players…

Fraser Forster 6

Untested, other than routine backups, but commanded its area well.

Japhet Tanganga 7

Pushed forward and set up Son’s first goal, but with a simple pass.

Davinson Sanchez 6

A few nervous moments running towards his own goal but did enough for the clean sheet.

Clement Lenglet 5

Its distribution, usually a force, was erratic.

Matt Doherty 5

Offered little rear wing on a quiet evening.

Rodrigue Bentancur 7

Sloppy at times but looked a class apart on the ball.

Yves Bissouma 6

Kept the ball moving well but still lacked the dynamism that characterized his performances at Brighton.

Ryan Sessegnon 4

The final ball was consistently sideways in a wavering display. Slightly improved in the second half and Perisic headed his cross goals.

Dejan Kulusevsky 7

Had a few efforts blocked in the first half and looked a threat when he went on the ball, setting up Danjuma’s goal.

Heung-min Son 9

Scored two brilliant goals in his most spirited performance in months. Twice tested Preston keeper Freddie Woodman in the first half as well.

Ivan Perisic 6

Largely peripheral in an auxiliary centre-forward role for the first 70 minutes, but tested Woodman with a header and assisted Son’s second.


Olivier Skipp (Bentancur 72′) 6

Composed on the ball.

Arnaut Danjuma (Sessegnon 72′) 7

He took the lead on his debut and scored a well conceded goal, which should give him confidence.

Emerson Royal (Doherty 72′) 6

Solid back.

Bryan Gil (Son 86′) N/A

Not enough time to impress.

Unused subs: Austin, Hojbjerg, Kane, Dier, Davies.
