Tottenham 0-2 Wolves: Defensive errors threaten to derail Champions League push

As a result, Wolves are ahead of Spurs and two points behind Arsenal in the battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

After losing 3-2 at home to Southampton in midweek, Tottenham desperately needed an answer to boost their four ambitions, but defensive mistakes cost them dearly.

Jimenez stole away after six minutes following an error by Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and the Frenchman barely covered himself in glory when Dendoncker doubled Wolves’ lead 12 minutes later.

Lloris redeemed himself a bit to prevent Wolves from adding to their advantage before the break.

Tottenham improved in the second half, but the closest was a deflected shot from Harry Winks against the post.

Wolves were quite comfortable, however, and moved Tottenham into seventh place with 37 points, just three behind fourth-placed West Ham United, who play at Leicester City later.

Tottenham slip to eighth place with 36 points.
