Tottenham Hotspur entertained Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier today as they hoped to pick up all three points at home. Spurs made a slow start to the game but managed to get into the half-time break with a goalless scoreline.

Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game in the 64th minute when he found the back of the net with a good header. Antonio Conte’s men defended their narrow advantage well and secured a narrow 1-0 win at home.

Let’s take a look at how each Tottenham player fared during the match against Wolves.

GK: Hugo Lloris – 7/10

The French keeper made a few important saves at the back and earned a solid clean sheet in front of the Tottenham supporters.

CB: Davinson Sanchez – 7/10

He was strong in the air and made a handful of crucial clearances inside his half.

CB: Eric Dier – 6.5/10

Dier cleared the danger when required and did enough to deny the opposition from scoring a goal.

CB: Ben Davies – 6.5/10

The Welsh talent didn’t hesitate to put his foot through the ball and was tidy with his passing.

Kulusevski orchestrated some meaningful opportunities for his teammates but failed to register a goal.
