Tottenham player ratings vs Leyton Orient: Dane Scarlett scores in Nuno Espirito Santo debut

Joe Hart

Very little to do in the first half other than pluck a few balls out of the air. Came off at half-time for Whiteman. 6

Kallum Cesay

Another versatile Spurs youngster, he covered the left flank well but didn’t get too many opportunities to get into attacking areas. Did what was required of him at the back before Espirito Santo brought all of his outfield players off after the hour mark. 6

Cameron Carter-Vickers

Back for yet another Spurs pre-season, the 23-year-old dealt well with what came his way, including an important interception just before the break. 7

Eric Dier

Captain for the day and he was not troubled too much in the first half by the Orient attackers. Got into a tussle with Drinan after the Orient man pushed youngster Cesay. Made some good interceptions early in the second half. 7

Maksim Paskotsi

Naturally a centre-back but playing at right-back, the 18-year-old Estonia international, like Cesay, was utilised mainly in a defensive role. 6

Nile John

With licence to get forward, he touched Winks’ early pass over a defender only to see his low shot saved by the goalkeeper. Always, looking for the ball, he was one of the brightest players for Spurs in the first half. Had a shot from distance pushed away by the keeper around the half hour mark. Quieter in the second half but he made an impression on the day. 8

Harry Winks

Playing in the holding role, he sprayed a perfect diagonal ball into the path of John for an early chance. Was a busy presence in front of the back four until he joined everyone in departing the action after 63 minutes. 7

Lucas Moura

Got around the pitch with his usual energy and played a perfect first-time through ball into the path of Scarlett to score before half-time. which gives him an extra point. 7

Dele Alli

Looking more bulked up in his upper body after all his summer work, he struggled to make much of an impact on the game despite coming deep often to get the ball. If anything he played too deep at times and did not get into the Orient box at all. 5

Steven Bergwijn

Plenty of runs down the left, trying to get on to the end of balls over the top but like Alli he struggled to make a real impact in the game. 5

Dane Scarlett

The 17-year-old sent an early header over the crossbar from Lucas’ corner. Plenty of running off the ball and he got his reward just before half-time, running on to Lucas’ through ball and hitting a composed, low left-footed shot in off the inside of the post. It was a mature finish that showed just why everyone at the club is so excited about him. Didn’t see much of the ball in the second half but he got his name on everyone’s lips again after a week in which Mourinho name-checked him again. 8

Subs

Alfie Whiteman

Made a flying save to prevent Kemp’s curling free-kick from creeping inside his post. Could not do much about Sotiriou’s excellent finish. 7

Harvey White

A busy midfield presence for the final 25 minutes during which the tempo dropped across the rest of the pitch due to the 10 changes. 7

Troy Parrott

Plenty of movement up front but he rarely saw the ball. 5

Jack Clarke

Embarked on one jinking run down the left that resulted in a blocked shot. A lively presence and he looked to be really trying to make an impression. 7

TJ Eyoma

Captain for the second half and went all Chiellini with one pull back of a shirt down the wing that would have brought him a yellow card in normal circumstances. Made a few good challenges late on in the game at right-back. 6

Malachi Fagan-Walcott

A solid presence at the back in a young backline and worked hard as Orient got on top against the most academy players. 6

Tobi Omole

Backed off Sotiriou too much to allow the Orient man time and space to score his curling equaliser. Recovered well in the minutes after but he gave him too much space in that one key moment. 5

Jamie Bowden

Worked hard in that often-seen academy midfield partnership with White, but to little avail. 6

Brooklyn Lyons-Foster

Played at right-back but like Cesay didn’t get into too many attacking areas. 6

Romaine Mundle

A couple of nice moments in attacking phases but needed a little more quality with his final ball. 6

Alfie Devine

Didn’t get on the ball enough early on in his substitute stint and had to drop back to get it a few times. Still just 16 and he’ll have plenty more opportunities as time goes on. 5
