Spurs player ratings in a horrific 2-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers

Here we have with us the Spurs player ratings as they face their third consecutive defeat in the Premier League against Wolves. This is the first time Tottenham has gone on to a 3 match losing streak for the second time in a single season. Wolves have won their last four away matches which is the most they have done since 1980.

Wolves took an early lead in the 6th minute as Lloris’ rebound from Neves and Dendoncker ended up with Jimenez with a half-volley. Spurs conceded a second in the 18th minute which is the first time they have done so. Podence’s great shot was saved and then was deflected off by Sanchez and Bentancur where Dedoncker was present to finish.

Although Wolves created fewer chances than Tottenham, they still have the same number of shots on target as Spurs. They seem to have found a formula of troubling every team in the Premier League. Spurs are going through a bad form and they must find a way out of it as they face Manchester City next in the Premier League.

Wolves are currently 7th on the Premier League table with 37 points whereas Tottenham are 8th on the table with 36 points. However, Spurs have one game in hand but that is against Manchester City. Therefore, Spurs could later regret losing out to points against smaller teams if they do not qualify for the Champions League.

Spurs player ratings vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

Hugo Lloris – 5/10

He played a part in both of the Wolves’ goals. A weak punch that landed in front of Jimenez and a mispass to Davies that gave away the ball.

Davinson Sanchez – 4/10

Sanchez was very sloppy at times and also did not provide the attacking threat he usually does on set-pieces.

Cristian Romero – 6/10

Was very late to react while his team conceded but tried a good header to score, however, Sa was up for it.

Ben Davies – 5/10

Gave away the ball to Wolves in the build-up for their second goal. Moved up to the left-back role and created a chance for Kulusevski later.

Matt Doherty – 3/10

Could not do anything to influence while facing his former teammates. Changed roles from wing-back to right-back but had very little effect.

Harry Winks – 5/10

Struggled a lot in the first half as he started over Hojbjerg. However, he improved in the second half as he got more time on the ball since Wolves sat back.

Rodrigo Bentancur – 6/10

He was one of the better players for Spurs but still had a few flaws to his game. Could have gotten an assist but instead got a second yellow card in three games.

Ryan Sessegnon – 3/10

Was replaced very early in the 28th minute due to tactical reasons. He did not seem to challenge Semedo on his side of the pitch.

Lucas Moura – 3/10

Did very little with the skillset he has and could not get the best out of the chances he got.

Harry Kane – 5/10

Tried to do a lot of things in the first but no player was on the same wavelength as him. Forced a good save from Sa’s leg and kept getting a few good chances.

Son Heung-Min – 4/10

Had a good chance to score when he was stepped by Bentancur but he does not look confident right now, also he set up a chance for Kane to score.


Dejan Kulusevski – 5/10

Completed a good pass through to Son and also took a good shot which barely missed the goal.

Steven Bergwijn – 5/10

Offered good energy to Spurs, last few minutes of a push to score a goal.

Emerson Royal – N/A

Did not get enough time to influence the game.
