Tottenham fans react to performance of Japhet Tanganga against Wolves

The youngster had a tough afternoon up against a lively Wolves attack.

Tottenham saw their Champions League aspirations take a significant hit as they were beaten 3-2 at home to Wolves.

Steven Bergwijn gave Spurs the lead after 13 minutes before Matt Doherty equalised.

Serge Aurier did restore a one-goal advantage for Tottenham prior to the interval but it wasn’t to be.

Wolves were magnificent in the second half and restored parity in the 57th minute through Diogo Jota.

Raul Jimenez, so often Wolves’ matchwinner, once again proved his worth with a winner in the 73rd minute of the match.

It leaves Tottenham facing a real fight to return to the Champions League next season, sitting five points away from Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho’s team are seventh in the Premier League and he must rally his charges sharpish.

One man who endured a difficult afternoon was Japhet Tanganga, who was utilised in an unfamiliar centre-back position.

Although he has played there for the under-23 team, it proved a tough baptism of fire for him at first-team level.

He struggled to get to grips with Jota and Jiminez and on this showing his first-team future might be viewed at full-back.

Of course, at 20 he will learn and this tough test will only serve to make him stronger.

Following his substitution late on, Spurs fans were quick to console the youngster on Twitter.

Here is a selection of tweets from Tottenham supporters on the performance of Tanganga:
