Tottenham offensive ratings
The Lilywhites were far from fluid in the first half but still managed to hit the post and launch half of their 24 shots. A breakthrough from the one we most expect – Harry Kane – broke the deadlock before the half. In the second half, a slight change following the blueprint of the goal led to a dominant 45 minutes.
Heung-Min Son – 7
Heung-Min Son was able to pick up the ball in some dangerous places at times in the first half but lacked that quality or fortune to do anything with it. It was a similar situation in the second half as Son had some nice touches but failed to really find that critical quality in the final third. Only 1 accurate cross from six corners simply is not good enough. Did provide some stretch in the second half as the Spurs were more direct.
Harry Kane – 8
Kane was all over the field in the first half, collecting the ball super-deep from Eric Dier and playing the long forward diagonal balls. Then late on in the half, Kane was where we want him, behind the Wolves defense and in on goal. Of course, Kane did not miss and now has finally scored under Ryan Mason. In the second half, Kane probably should have finished what should have been a hattrick. Kane hit the post for the second time, to go with five shots on target, Kane is coming back.
Gareth Bale – 7
Gareth Bale saw a bit of the ball in the first half versus Wolves but struggled to really impact proceedings with it. Bale did manage to get a couple of decent crosses off but his big touches into the middle to try and shoot were denied. In the second half, he was also a bit more active on the long ball like Son. Rather than the long diagonals, the Spurs were moving direct and it was a more effective approach for Bale and the team.
