It was all-square at the end of a thrilling game at Anfield and here are the ratings after the 1-1 draw:


SIMON MIGNOLET: Could do nothing about Harry Kane's goal and made a smart save from Christian Eriksen. 7/10

NATHANIEL CLYNE: Was perhaps overshadowed slightly by the energetic Kyle Walker in the battle of the England right-backs. 6

DEJAN LOVREN: There has been a significant improvement in Lovren's performances, but he was rolled too easily by Kane for Spurs' leveller. 6

MAMADOU SAKHO: The Anfield crowd was nervous every time he was near the ball. Lost his footing and possession too often. 5

ALBERTO MORENO: His delivery from the left was poor, though he did a job defensively. 6

EMRE CAN: A strong presence in the heart of a midfield that helped shackle Dele Alli. 7

JORDAN HENDERSON: Liverpool's skipper struggled to grasp hold of the game in midfield at times. 6

JAMES MILNER: Was his usual hard-working self without any real moments of quality. 6

PHILIPPE COUTINHO: Finished off a well-worked goal and his cross from the left was almost deflected in for the winner. 8

ADAM LALLANA: Was typically lively in Jurgen Klopp's pressing system and harried Spurs defenders. 7

DANIEL STURRIDGE: Missed a good first-half chance when sent through but set up Coutinho for the opener. 7


DIVOCK ORIGI (for Sturridge, 72 mins): Caused Spurs' defence some problems with his pace and movement. 6

JOE ALLEN (for Lallana, 82 mins): The Welshman could not score the late winner Anfield was hoping for when he arrived. 6

JORDON IBE (for Milner, 90 mins): Not on long enough to have any real impact in the game. 6


HUGO LLORIS: Made two good saves in the first half from Adam Lallana, clawing one away from on his line. 7

KYLE WALKER: Often positioned himself in a right-wing forward role but never neglected defensive responsibilities. 7

TOBY ALDERWEIRELD: His range of passing was brilliant but he missed from a free header from a corner in stoppage time. 7

KEVIN WIMMER: Not always as mobile as his central-defensive partner, he played Sturridge onside when he fired at Lloris. 6

DANNY ROSE: Like Walker, his energy was incredible as he covered the entire left flank. 7

ERIC DIER: Seven days on from a match-winning goal against the world champions he enjoyed a more solid outing. 7

MOUSA DEMBELE: Did a lot of the dirty work in midfield to allow those ahead of him to shine. 8

CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN: Provided the ball for Kane's equaliser and set up Alli for a great opportunity. 8

DELE ALLI: A quiet afternoon for the much-hyped teenager following an international break where he was compared to Bryan Robson. 6

SON HEUNG-MIN: Should have scored when he fired a volley wide from Dier's ball into the box. 6

HARRY KANE: Took his 22nd Premier League goal of the season in style with a perfectly-placed finish. 8


NACER CHADLI (for Son, 67 mins): Dallied when he should have shot on the left-hand side of the area during one attack. 6

RYAN MASON (for Alli, 88 mins): Could not inspire a late winner which would have heaped the pressure on Leicester. 6
