The goalie’s life was made more difficult with a bit of play in the defense, but overall he did well. Some good saves to add to the reel of the highlights, despite the disappointing result.
Any defender will regret running into Son Heung-min but Hoever struggled all afternoon. He was partly at fault for the second goal and his positional awareness was poor from start to finish.
An imposing demonstration from the skipper who gathered his defense and impressed. He led the others through the game when they struggled and made great blocks on the line.
A decent display from Saiss which, despite the occasional sloppy moment, was quite comfortable. However, he should have scored early in the second half.
Spurs had way too much joy on the right side and a big part of it because Semedo was struggling to deal with Bale. He was also not helped by Gibbs-White in front of him.
A comfortable screen but in some ways too comfortable. Moutinho came through the game and couldn’t gain a foothold on the ball in midfield.
Similar to his midfielder counterpart, Dendoncker was unable to assert his presence on the dominating Spurs midfielder.
Traore was the wolves’ biggest attack threat throughout the afternoon. He had several bursts in midfield and almost single-handedly brought his side back into the game.
Despite his impressive performances recently, the attacking midfielder has been disappointing against Spurs. He failed to touch the ball in dangerous areas and when he received it he often gave it away.
In the first half, Gibbs-White was defensively ineffective and anonymous. In the second half he moved onto the pitch when Vitinha came out and he was much better on the ball.
Similar to his offensive teammates, the young striker struggled. He was alone for much of the game and didn’t take the odd chances he had, which were created by Traore.
