Spurs were able to get a positive result against Wolves 1-0, while unable to fully exploit their qualities. The first half was very difficult for Tottenham, as Wolves had 12 chances, while the team from North London managed to deliver a single shot.
Tottenham’s defensive line was led by Eric Dier, who played very reliably and with quality. Various media commented on the Englishman’s game.
London World, for example, wrote: ‘Dier is the glue that binds the Tottenham defence, barely put a foot wrong all game. Solid and progressive.‘
The Evening Standard said: ‘Made some timely interventions in the heart of the back three and played well, particularly considering Cristian Romero’s absence. Increasingly reliable.‘
The last characterization followed from TheHardTackle: ‘Dier was the player to watch in our preview, and he guided Sanchez smartly from the central spot.‘
