Here’s all the news from around the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium over the past 24 hours.
Player ratings vs Liverpool
Tottenham finally returned to action on Sunday afternoon after multiple postponements and it was well worth the wait as they served up a thrilling 2-2 draw with Liverpool.
Harry Kane and Diogo Jota swapped goals in the first-half before Son Heung-min was on target in the second half to cancel out Andy Robertson’s header.
The Scot then saw red for his tackle on Emerson Royal, but Spurs couldn’t make the most of the extra man advantage to seal all three points.
With that said, there were a number of standout performers in Conte’s camp.
As expected, Son scored high in the ratings, as did captain Hugo Lloris and midfielder Harry Winks on a surprise start.
But how did the rest of the team fare?

The Spurs head coach faced the media following the Liverpool game and one of the main talking points from his press conference was about Winks’ performance and also singled out Dele Alli and Ryan Sessegnon.
“I think a good performance, but I didn’t have doubts about this. Harry Winks is working very hard. He impressed me in training sessions for his commitment, his will, his desire. I think he’s a really good player.
“When we play in this way, with this formation, with a number four in front of the three central defenders, I think he’s very, very good. Very good.
“Good performance from him and Dele played a good game. Also, Dele, if we play with a 3-5-2, he’s a midfielder that is good physically, strong physically, good technique, good penetration because he has the right ability to attack. He had chances to score but good performance.
“Also Sessegnon. I know that if we want to improve, if we want to improve our level, I need to improve every single player that we have. This is the only way, the only path that we have to do.
“I know that if we improve every single player, we improve the level of this team. Otherwise it will be very difficult to be competitive.”

Dele Alli reacts after surprise Tottenham start
Dele Alli has found Premier League starts hard to come by this season.
In fact, prior to returning to the XI for the Liverpool game – a surprise decision made by Conte ahead of kick-off – his last start in the competition came against Arsenal at the end of September.
So after getting a chance against the Reds, the attacking midfielder was in a reflective mood afterwards.
“Loved being back out there today,” he wrote on Twitter. “A hard earned point and a lot to build on.
“Big game on Wednesday to now focus on.”
Next up for Dele and Spurs is a Carabao Cup tie against London rivals West Ham United with a place in the semi-final up for grabs.
