Spurs 1 Wolves 3 

Stupid, Stupid, Stupid Spurs! Wolves came from behind to earn a stunning 3-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday, dealing a hammer blow to Spurs’ title credentials.

After a slow start, Harry Kane celebrated being awarded an MBE this week with a sensational strike to break the deadlock 22 minutes in – his 13th goal of the season, taking him level with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the top of the Premier League Golden Boot race.

Spurs appeared to have overindulged across the festive period as they struggled to find any rhythm early on, but their shooting from distance was on point, with Rui Patricio brilliantly saving from Christian Eriksen before Kane went one better moments later.

The England striker carried the ball down the right flank, cut inside onto his left before arrowing an effort into the net from 25 yards, leaving Patricio with no chance.

Son Hueng-Min then went close with another excellent from range as Spurs remained in command until the interval. After the break, Wolves stepped up the tempo but struggled to create any real chances of note, with Spurs happy to sit back and take their foot off the gas. That tactic proved foolish, as Boly climbed highest to head Joao Moutinho’s corner into the net to equalise. It got worse for Spurs late on as Jimenez picked up a pass from Ivan Cavaleiro, who span on the spot, before guiding a fine finish past Hugo Lloris to turn the match on its head.

Costa’s 87th-minute finish, having latched on to an intricate through ball from Matt Doherty, completed the win for Wolves, as doubts over Spurs’ longevity in this Premier League title race reared their head once again.
