Tottenham managed to quell a Wolves comeback on Saturday evening and take all three points from Molineux with a 3-2 win, and Spurs fans saw the positives from Juan Foyth’s performance despite the 20-year-old giving away two penalties.
Spurs started the game brilliantly and took a 2-0 lead into the break thanks to goals from the much maligned Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura, before Harry Kane looked to have made the result comfortable with his first league goal in five weeks.
However, Foyth initially fouled striker Raul Jimenez in the box and Ruben Neves dispatched the penalty with just over 20 minutes remaining. Wolves had their tails up and were given another chance from the spot when Foyth this time pushed defender Jonny, allowing Jiminez to convert.
The young Argentine centre-back was making his Premier League debut after being limited to cup games since his summer 2017 move from Estudiantes, but Spurs fans were still impressed with his performance despite the mistakes. Check out some of the best reaction from Twitter below.
Juan Foyth’s recent emergence is a very good sign for Spurs as it gives Poch more options in the central defensive area, especially with Jan Vertonghen still a few weeks away from fitness. #COYS

Foyth was good and don’t care what anyone says. #thfc

Mauricio Pochettino’s management of Juan Foyth deserves to be highlighted.
The young central defender again proved last night what a star he is going to eventually become for Spurs.

He was put in two awkward situations by teammates. Could easily have happened to Toby. I thought Foyth had a good game.

Feel a bit for Juan Foyth. That first penalty only comes about due to Tripper’s error seconds beforehand, and for me, the second is just a shoulder to shoulder with no foul.

can't blame Foyth, he still did well for the match and made a few good tackles; he had to make a decision and it was risk he had to take #coys
