Tottenham player ratings: Dele Alli, Oliver Skipp and Hugo Lloris impress as Nuno wins again



Hugo Lloris

Nothing too serious to do until he rushed out to make a big save to deny Traore just after the hour mark. That’s the sign of a top goalkeeper and in his 300th Premier League appearance for the club. 8

Japhet Tanganga

After an early clash of heads, some tough tussles with Traore and picked up a yellow card before the break for a challenge on Marcal. Did well though from then on despite that booking. 7

Davinson Sanchez

Had an iffy moment just after the quarter hour mark with a sliding clearance that ended up hitting his knee and going behind him but fortunately for him Raul Jiminez was offside and his shot deflected wide anyway. Defended well on the whole though after that. 7

Eric Dier

Gave away the ball inexplicably in the Wolves half under little pressure in the second half, which resulted in a big chance for Traore that Lloris stopped. Had a header saved on the line from a corner at the other end. Other than that he did much of what was asked of him. 6

Sergio Reguilon

The Spaniard picked out Alli well for the penalty incident early on with a quick ball into the box. Also had some tough battles with Traore but did well on the whole and used his pace to make a few interceptions. 7

Oliver Skipp

Sent Semedo sprawling in the Spurs box with a shoulder to shoulder challenge and the referee and a quick check waved away any penalty appeals. Picked up a bizarre yellow card for a perfect tackle on Traore. In the second half, he covered so much ground. Another very good performance in the Premier League for the 20-year-old. 8

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Battled away in the middle and took a yellow card for the team with a foul on Silva on the break late on. Also nutmegged a defender in the box at the other end and had a shot deflected over. 7

Dele Alli

Timed his run perfectly before touching the ball past Sa and colliding with the goalkeeper. Tucked away the penalty confidently, sending the stopper the wrong way. Could have had a second before half-time had Bergwijn found him with his square ball. Made a great sliding block in his own box to deny Trincao. Worked incredibly hard from start to finish. Much of what he did might have gone unnoticed but he put in another very good performance in his new role. 8

Lucas Moura

Played a good ball over the top to Bergwijn for a big Spurs chance before the break. However, this was a very quiet day from the Brazilian. 4

Son Heung-min

Came off early in the warm-up with the medical staff and didn’t look entirely comfortably or running freely at times. Had a shot/cross blocked in the box early in the second half and then his two follow-ups from Bergwijn’s saved effort were blocked. Walked gingerly on to the pitch at the final whistle and Spurs will hope it’s nothing serious. 5

Steven Bergwijn

Had a big opportunity to square the ball for Alli in the box after a good run but he put the pass just behind his team-mate, although the Dutchman was flagged offside anyway. His low curling effort was saved well by the keeper on 64 minutes. He produced a wonderful bit of skill down the left flank to get up the pitch and set up Kane for a chance in the final 10 minutes. Covered so much ground, was attacking one moment and then defending in his own box the next. Just needs that end product. 7

Subs

Giovani Lo Celso

Replaced Lucas and tried to help Spurs keep the ball better which he did as the game wore on. 5

Harry Kane

He entered the game with 15 minutes to go amid chants aplenty from the Wolves fans about his future. Had a chance within seven minutes but the keeper saved at his feet. Got a yellow card in added time for wasting time. 5

Harry Winks

Replaced Bergwijn in added time. N/A
