Tottenham’s hopes of playing Champions League football were dealt a major blow after Jose Mourinho’s side were beaten 3-2 by Wolves, despite leading twice in the game.

Steven Bergwijn and Serge Aurier struck either side of Matt Doherty’s equaliser, but second-half goals from Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez earned the visitors all three points.

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

Paulo Gazzaniga, 5 – Helpless with the goals and didn’t have much else to deal with.

Serge Aurier, 6 – A strange afternoon for the full-back, who was partly at fault for Wolves’ first goal, but made amends by creating Bergwijn’s goal and then putting Spurs ahead on the stroke of half-time with a stunning left-footed effort.

Davinson Sanchez, 5 – Struggled through.

Japhet Tanganga, 4 – Didn’t justify being picked ahead of Toby Alderweireld. Made a real mess of the clearance for Wolves’ first goal, should have taken down Adama Traore for the second and was then turned inside by Jimenez for the winner.

Ben Davies, 5 – A difficult afternoon for the Welshman, who has looked off the pace since returning to the side from an ankle injury.

Eric Dier, 6 – A surprise inclusion in the starting XI, but besides his poorly attempted block for Doherty’s goal, was one of Spurs’ better players on the afternoon.

Harry Winks, 6 – Controlled the midfield relitavely well – and produced two excellent passes which led to goals.

Giovani Lo Celso, 6 – Always looked the most likely Spurs player to make something happen, but was lacking in quality at times.

Dele Alli, 5 – Should have scored from Aurier’s early cross, only for Bergwijn to tuck home the rebound and then missed a glaring chance to make it 3-1 early in the second period, agonisingly heading wide of the far post.

Steven Bergwijn, 5 – Slammed home his second goal in as many Premier League home games early on, but was hardly involved after that.

Lucas Moura, 5 – Started positively and looked much more comfortably playing on the wing, but faded as the game went on.

Substitutes

Tanguy Ndombele, 6 – Injected some much-needed energy late on.

Gedson Fernandes, N/A – Didn’t offer much during his eight-minute cameo.

Troy Parrott, N/A – Handed his second Premier League appearance in stoppage-time.

  1. Spurs season and Mourinho’s job could be saved by the Corona Virus! Official talk today is that football games could be called off soon if the virus situation gets worse, which appears likely.

    Twitter was full of praise for Mourinho’s team selection before the kick off. Now, with the benefit of hindsight, he got it wrong! LOL.

  2. Another master class performance from our manager.
    A much needed match free week to concentrate on tactics in training heralded a great performance.Complain about the lack of strikers, but unable to defend.
    I said way back when JM was given the job that Spurs would be his 1st club where he would leave without having won a trophy.
    A defeat against Norwich in the FA Cup and our season is over.
    Better go back to fishing sardines.

  3. what was that all about is Jose asking for the sack DIER lived up to hes name DAVIES very poor the rest below average did he really think they could beat Wolves with that defence i only hope Jose is gone before its to late now we know why UNITED got rid he is a busted flush would not trust him to pick hes nose
