A decent first half was utterly undone by a poor showing after the interval, which saw Tottenham lose 1-0 to Wolves, their fourth consecutive away loss in all competitions.
The type of away performance put further doubt on whether Spurs have what it takes to secure a top-four spot.
Lacklustre going forward and too susceptible to a dagger blow at the back, Tottenham yet again struggled to put a solid 90-minute away performance together.
They failed to take advantage of Newcastle’s loss earlier in the day to Manchester City and might rue their insipid second-half performance.
Fraser Forster 6/10
Fraser Forster didn’t have to make any saves in the first half. His most pressing responsibility was to distribute, acting as Spurs quasi-sweeper. He was stable in possession, providing a calming presence.
Early in the second half, he made an excellent instinctive reaction save from Jimenez’s powerful, close-range header. That was just the start for Forster in a way busier second stanza. He made some solid saves, but he should have done better on the goal.
Forster didn’t do enough on the initial shot, parrying directly into danger, where the obliging Adama Traore made no mistake.
Clement Lenglet 4/10
Clement Lenglet played pretty until the remaining 35 minutes or so. Then, he coughed up an attempted clearance in the second half, leading to an eventual long-range Ruben Neves missile, which Forster handled.
Minutes later, his wayward pass almost cost Tottenham dearly. But luckily, Wolves proved why they have the fewest home goals in the top flight.
Ben Davies 6/10
Ben Davies didn’t do too much wrong. He wasn’t fantastic either, but he can’t be blamed for anything untoward. The Welshman still won’t be pleased with his average day at the office.
Cristian Romero 7/10
Cristian Romero was yet again Tottenham’s outstanding defender. He was poised on the ball, making it almost impossible for Wolves to find a decisive, penetrative pass. Romero intercepted once and made two clearances.
