Tottenham Hotspur 2-3 Wolverhampton Wanderers: Tottenham Player Ratings

Tottenham hosted Wolverhampton Wanderers in their chase for a Champions League place but it didn’t go our way.

Wolves weren’t going to be an easy team to face, and we didn’t have our two main attackers. However, Dele Alli made a return to the team while Eric Dier started in the heart of the defence alongside Japhet Tanganga and Davinson Sanchez.

Spurs made the breakthrough early in the first half as Alli missed a glorious chance but Bergwijn tapped in the save from Rui Patricio.

However, the lead didn’t last long as Matt Doherty smashed home the equaliser in the 27th minute after Tanganga made a hash of a cross.

Spurs still went into half-time with the lead, thanks to a brilliant left-foot finish from Serge Aurier just before the whistle.

Tottenham started the second half better but Adama Traore’s run caused some problems with Diogo Jota equalising for the second time. Things were made worse in the 73rd minute as Jota passed the ball to Raul Jimenez, who cut inside and slotted past Paulo Gazzaniga.

Spurs didn’t have any other major chances apart from a handball shout or two, and this was another disappointing result.

Tottenham player ratings

Paulo Gazzaniga – 5/10

Gazzaniga wasn’t tested much in the first half but the second half was a different story. He couldn’t do much for all the three goals he conceded.

Davinson Sanchez – 6/10

The Colombian did well in patches and he wasn’t the worst defender we had on the pitch.

Eric Dier – 6/10

Dier had his struggles at the back, especially with the movement of the Wolves forwards. The Englishman did have some fun battles with Traore and had one fantastic tackle in the first half too. However, he should have done more to stop the second goal.

Japhet Tanganga – 6/10

The youngster had a tough battle with Traore early on and didn’t really put a foot wrong until the third goal. He was replaced by Tanguy Ndombele in the 75th minute.

Serge Aurier – 8/10

Aurier had a hand in both goals that Tottenham scored in the first half. The wing-back’s cross caused havoc in the Wolves defence while he produced a sublime left-foot finish to give Spurs the lead just before half-time.

Ben Davies – 6/10

Another defender who had an average game. The Welshman got into some great areas to cross the ball but wasted those chances. He was also booked later in the second half.

Harry Winks – 6.5/10

The Englishman started the match well but faded as the game went by. He didn’t have enough control of the ball at his feet and was booked for arguing with the referee.

Giovani Lo Celso Tottenham Predicted Lineup

Giovani Lo Celso – 6/10

The Argentine had some good moments in the game, and also tracked back well a couple of times. Lo Celso was the first player booked in the game after bringing down Traore.

Lucas Moura – 6/10

The Brazilian had a tough game as some of the Wolves challenges were a little too rough. He tried his best with some great touches and flicks, but this seemed to be a physical outing he didn’t enjoy.

Dele Alli – 6/10

Alli’s return to the team should have seen him open the scoring in the first half. Alli had a chance just before the half-time whistle but his acrobatic effort lacked power. He did assist Aurier for his goal and had a great header in the second half which flashed wide.

Steve Bergwijn

Steven Bergwijn – 7/10

The Dutch winger was at the right place at the right time to open the scoring in the game. Bergwijn was a threat throughout the first half but faded way in the second half.

Substitutes

Tanguy Ndombele – 5/10

Ndombele came on to try and get us going, but it didn’t work.

Gedson Fernandes – N/A

Didn’t do much of note after coming on.

Troy Parrot – N/A

There were some ironic cheers when Parrot came on in the final seconds of the game.
