Struijk - 7: Looked to be struggling with injuries through the first half but managed to see the game out.

Forshaw (Roberts 72) - 6: Considering how long he has spent on the sidelines, Forshaw has performed pretty well since returning to the side.

Klich (Firpo 59) - 7: Was quietly very good further up the pitch for Leeds. Was subbed off just after the equaliser.

James - 8: Scored the goal and forced Hugo Lloris into a number of second-half saves.

Harrison - 7: Provided an excellent assist for James's goal but strong deliveries were few and far between.

Gelhardt (McKinstry 86) - 7: Tested Lloris on a few occasions. Plenty of running and commitment on his first Premier League start.


Firpo (59) - 6: Was thrown into a cauldron after Spurs had equalised. Was ran a bit ragged, alongside the rest of the Leeds defence.

Roberts (72) - 6: Tried to make things happen when coming on but things just didn't quite fall.

McKinstry (86) - N/A
