Tottenham leapfrogged Arsenal to move into the top four with a stirring win at Molineux, consigning their promoted opponents to a third consecutive defeat, though by coming back from 3-0 down to have their visitors hanging on grimly, Wolves made a notable contribution to a pulsating game.
If the Premier League is beginning to look a tougher prospect than it did a month or so ago for Nuno Espírito Santo’s side there is no need to panic just yet. Wolves will not have to face opponents of Spurs’ quality every week, even if Arsenal are up next. Wolves still play a slick brand of football and they were slightly unlucky at times, notably when peppering the Spurs goal at the start of the second half and seeing a goal chalked off for an incorrect offside at the close of the first. “It was a clean goal,” the Wolves manager said. “It was a fantastic move and it should have counted, but the officials have a tough job.”
