Saturday evening saw Tottenham Hotspur make the trip to the Molineux to face reigning Championship title winners Wolverhampton Wanderers.
It was a mixed night for manager Mauricio Pochettino who would’ve taken plenty of positives from the first half in particular as Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura gave us a two goal advantage. Harry Kane made it three just after the hour mark, and although Wolves had their moments, victory looked comfortable.
Two penalties later and Juan Foyth can consider himself unlucky, but he’ll learn from it. Some would say we were lucky but we held on at 3-2 and that’s all history will remember.
Despite the defensive mini meltdown, WhoScored still gave six players a 7+ rating on the day – compared to only three players for Wolves – and with Harry Kane taking top spot with 8.25, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela, Kieran Trippier and Hugo Lloris completed the top five on the day.
Ben Davies with the last with a 7 rating for the record.
