Jan Vertonghen scored an injury-time winner as Tottenham kept up their top four chances with a 2-1 victory at Wolves.

Lucas Moura’s stunner put Spurs in front at the break, but a fine strike from Adama Traore got the hosts back into the game. However, as the clock struck 91 minutes, Tottenham’s Belgian centre-back planted a well-placed header into the bottom corner.

Here’s how every Spurs player rated on the day.

Paulo Gazzaniga, 7 – Made some crucial saves, but could only watch Traore’s thunderous effort fly into the top corner.

Serge Aurier, 7 – Didn’t offer a great deal going forward, but stood firm defensively.

Davinson Sanchez, 5 – Made one goal-saving block in the first-half, but that chance came from his own poor touch, which appropriately summed up his afternoon.

Toby Alderweireld, 7 – Defended superbly once again, making a number of crucial blocks and clearances.

Jan Vertonghen, 7 – Had a torrid afternoon against the tricky Traore, but came up with the goods in injury-time – his first goal since the opening day of last season at Newcastle.

Eric Dier, 5 – Had he volleyed home rather than onto the post, Spurs’ afternoon would have been a whole lot more comfortable.

Moussa Sissoko, 6 – Worked hard.

Dele Alli, 5 – Quieter than in previous weeks.

Lucas Moura 7 – One of Tottenham’s better players on the day, capped by a stunning opening goal – his third since the arrival of Jose Mourinho and fifth of the campaign.

Son Heung-min, 4 – Not his day.

Harry Kane, 6 – Did a lot of the dirty work, but didn’t have many chances at goal.


Christian Eriksen, N/A – Sent over the corner that led to Vertonghen’s winner.

Juan Foyth, N/A – Came on in added-time.

Harry Winks, N/A – Like Foyth, introduced for the final few seconds.



  1. Harry Kane, 6 – Did a lot of the dirty work, but didn’t have many chances at goal.
    What dirty work? there you go again awarding Harry Kane points he doesn’t deserve, he had a very poor game as he always do against teams that defend very well and play a high line which makes it difficult for Kane to get in the box because he has no pace comparing to Jamie Vardy who have it in abundance. Son Heung-min was up and down that pitch while Harry was playing your it and you gave him a lousy 4, Jake I think you should find another job that you can make sense of.

      • Jake, it is you who needs to grow up, with your bias points system and comments in favor of Kane, What I have notice about writers like your self. most of you pick on the rest of the team when they have a poor game, but you never do that to Harry Kane is there a particular reason for this.

          • Don’t be sore about criticism Jake, the players you write about has to take it from you so take your medicine and may be you will learn to understand what your writing about and put out some fair and unbiased post happy new year Jake.

  2. LOL. Kane worked very hard and battled away as the lone man up front. I don’t think you understand the game, Irvin. If Kane had not been doing what Mourinho expected of him he would have been subbed.

    • Dear Carrigbawn, thanks for the response but can you name me one game over 5 season that Harry Kane has ever been subbed when he was having a poor game which over the past 2 years has been quite often?
