Tottenham were coasting to a 3-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers before Juan Foyth conceded a couple of penalties as the home side made a fight of it in the final few minutes.
Erik Lamela opened the scoring in the 27th minute before Lucas Moura and Harry Kane made it 3-0. Foyth was making his Premier League debut, and his fouls enabled Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez to score.
Nevertheless, this was a decent performance from the side and the win lifted us to the top four thanks to Arsenal’s draw against Liverpool.
Foyth might have made a couple of mistakes, but there were some heroes in the side. Here are the player ratings from a great game at Molineux.
Hugo Lloris – 8/10
The captain made a couple of quality saves before the two penalties. Lloris didn’t stand a chance with either of the spot-kicks but was good otherwise.
Kieran Trippier – 6.5/10
The Englishman provided the assist for Moura for our second goal but was really poor in defence against the Wolves.
Juan Foyth – 6/10
The Argentine did a decent job in the first half of his Premier League debut but was at fault for both penalties that we conceded.
Toby Alderweireld – 7.5/10
Alderweireld didn’t have the greatest game as he was caught out of position a few times. Nevertheless, he was decent in the air and won a number of duels against the opposition.
Ben Davies – 7/10
Davies wasn’t joining the attack as much as expected, however, he didn’t make major mistakes in the defence.
Harry Winks – 7.5/10
The Englishman has clocked up a lot of minutes this week and started the game well before tiredness caught up with him.
Mousa Dembele – NA
The Belgian had to be taken down the tunnel after just a minute with an ankle injury.
Moussa Sissoko – 7/10
Sissoko didn’t perform miracles on the pitch but once again, he put in a shift for Spurs.
Erik Lamela – 7/10
Lamela scored one and had a role in Kane’s goal too as the Argentine continued his quality season for Spurs.
Lucas Moura – 6.5/10
Moura had an excellent first half where he scored but lost his mojo in the second half of the game.
Harry Kane – 7.5/10
The Englishman had a number of chances to score but Rui Patricio was there to deny him. His goal came in the second half by linking up with Lamela.
Son Heung-min – 6/10
Son came on to replace the injured Dembele after a few minutes and was replaced by Eriksen in the second half.
Christian Eriksen – 5.5/10
The Dane had half an hour to show his magic, but he didn’t seem to be in the game.
Davinson Sanchez – NA
The Colombian came on as a late sub to shore up the defence.
