Tottenham Hotspur stumbled to three points last night as they beat Wolves 3-2 at Molineux.
And this was despite taking a three-goal advantage into the closing stages of the game.
Late on in the contest, Juan Foyth gave away two penalties and Spurs’ lead was reduced to just one goal.
But they held on and managed to pick up the win in the end.
After the game, Tottenham fans were discussing Foyth’s performance. He was rewarded with a start after an eye-catching centre-back display against West Ham in the midweek EFL Cup victory.
But the Argentina youth international struggled in this Premier League encounter.
It was the youngster’s Premier League debut but his two fouls brought Wolves back into the tie.
After the game, his manager Mauricio Pochettino defender Foyth. He told BBC Sport: “These things happen.
“He is so young, it’s his first game in the Premier League. I think he played well.
“He always tried to play and was relaxed and calm. I think his performance was very good and I am happy with him.”
After the game, many Spurs fans echoed these thoughts and jumped to the 20-year-old’s defence.
Here is a selection of tweets from Tottenham fans discussing Foyth’s performance.
All part of the learning curve mate

Dave this young lad is a future Tottenham Captain, he has it all, unlucky that Tripp left him exposed for the first, the second was a coin toss some times given some times left off

Really feel for Foyth, mugged off by Trippier for the first, and that one was borderline. What an introduction to PL life!

Anyone who calls out Foyth didn't watch that game from beginning to end

Despite the 2 pens (who I blame others for) he had a good game tonight

He was excellent, completely sold down the river by Trippier for both. Hopefully we see a bit more of him in the games to come 💪

Thought he was better than Toby even though he gave away two pens

He played great, really unlucky with second pen. Not a worry about him at all, he looks a class act
