Tottenham Hotspur slumped to yet another defeat this evening. This time, it was against Wolverhampton Wanderers by a margin of 2-3 as their struggles continue.
Jose Mourinho’s men, however, did take an early lead in the game through Steven Bergwijn in the 13th minute. But, it didn’t last long as Matt Doherty restored parity just before the half-hour mark. And just when it seemed like the first half was going to end with the scores being level, Spurs once again found the back of the net, thanks to Serge Aurier.
That being said, the Lilywhites failed to capitalise on Aurier’s excellent strike just before the half-time whistle and ended up conceding another goal just before the hour mark. This time it was Diogo Jota, who levelled the scoreline and the Portuguese went on to assist Raul Jimenez for the winner in the 73rd minute.
Here are the Spurs players rated in their defeat to Wolves.
Paulo Gazzaniga 6
Chances were few and far between for both sides throughout the most period of the game. But, when Wolves did strike, Gazzaniga had very little chance of stopping them. It was an unfortunate evening for the Argentine goalkeeper.
Davinson Sanchez 5
An absolutely horrendous defensive display from the Colombian. He failed to impose his authority and got caught out of position on way too many occasions. It is now evident that the ex-Ajax starlet struggles without the presence of a more experienced defender alongside him.
Eric Dier 3
Somehow managed to perform worse than Sanchez, thanks to his awful positioning and lack of accuracy in his tackles. The Englishman also lacked concentration and should have done a whole lot better in 1v1 duels.
Japhet Tanganga 3
It was a disastrous game for Japhet Tanganga, who looked clueless throughout the game. Perhaps the absence of someone like Toby Alderweireld pressurised the young defender into playing a more critical role in the backline.
Serge Aurier 7.5
Aurier was one of the better performers for Tottenham this evening. The Ivorian showed immense quality to score the goal just before half-time with a brilliant finish. However, he certainly could have done a better job defensively, especially when it came to dealing with Jota.
Giovani Lo Celso 7
Looked lively, at times, with the ball at his feet as he often does. The Argentine tried to spark things up in the final third but always lacked the support from his teammates. As a result, Lo Celso often got overwhelmed in the middle of the park.
Harry Winks 6.5
Drafting Harry Winks alongside Lo Celso turned out to be a terrible idea from Mourinho. The Englishman was forced to operate deep, where he was overwhelmed by the Wolves midfielders. His commitment was remarkable, but he got isolated way too often.
Ben Davies 4
Yet another disastrous display from the Welshman, who seems to have lost his mojo since returning from injury. Offered very little going forward while his defensive contributions were borderline awful.
Lucas Moura 6
Another disappointing performance from Lucas Moura, who seems like a misfit in this Spurs team without the presence of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min. The Brazilian often failed to make things happen and was mostly ineffective going forward.
Dele Alli 6.5
Alli had a mixed game. The English international looked promising, at times, operating in the false nine role. However, much like Lo Celso, he lacked support while he also could have done a bit better in making full use of his chances.
Steven Bergwijn 6.5
Bergwijn had a decent first-half, notably scoring the early opener. But, the Dutchman, like any other Spurs attacker, started to fade away as time wore on.
Tanguy Ndombele 6.5
Replaced Tanganga in the 76th minute and offered more stability in central midfield. He should have been brought in much earlier by Mourinho.
Gedson Fernandes N/A
Added more energy to the side after coming on for Aurier in the 82nd minute.
Troy Parrott N/A
A late replacement for Davies.
