"Soldado had a partner with Kane to play with and they played with the two wide men. That helped them tactically," Hoddle told Sky Sports News.
"He was playing down the middle on his own and in the end I think he's stopped making runs.
"As soon as Tottenham went behind their energy lifted, they played much quicker and with urgency – but putting the two up top helped Soldado."
Soldado scored his 13th goal in Tottenham colours last night after making just under 40 appearances for the club.
