Wolves stun Tottenham with three goals in 18 minutes

| |

Tottenham Hotspur title hopes suffered an unexpected setback thanks to a dramatic comeback 3-1 win by Wolves at Wembley.

Spurs led through Harry Kane’s spectacular 25-yard strike in the first half but Wolves punished a poor second-half performance, scoring three times in the final 18 minutes to end their hosts’ five-game winning run.

The north London side would have moved only three points behind leaders Liverpool with a win, but defeat means the Reds can end the day nine points clear.

“We have had a very good run in the last few weeks and to keep that level is difficult,” said Pochettino, whose side won 6-2 and 5-0 against Everton and Bournemouth respectively in their last two games.

“We tried to play a little more in the second half, but we were too direct and I think we started to pay for the effort in the other games.

“We are not machines. We need to understand that we cannot get ourselves in this situation.”
